So…yesterday was a dreary day here but perfect for much needed shopping! We don’t go to Costco all that often but it’s the only place that carries the Italian red sauce that we love. We try to buy four at a time…any more seems obsessive. Costco also has this pasta…and double bags of this cheese. Yesterday…for an unknown reason…Costco was overly filled with people! Check out lines were unbelievably long and arduous. What were people buying? Plants! The ferns I searched for last summer were at Costco and the hibiscus that we love to put all over the decks were there, too…in both tree and not tree form! Who knew? But we didn’t buy any…yet. I think we have to back just to buy plants…and Den is figuring out how to get them home.
I had my Fitbit on and I walked nearly 1.6 miles just at Costco. But I purposefully pushed the cart and walked up and down every aisle…only running into a few people! I did see a sweet little lady who even had the dreaded Romaine lettuce in her cart! Hopefully it didn’t come from Arizona!
We were not finished after Costco…it was on to Trader Joe’s! Darn that site that publishes what’s new and awesome at Trader Joe’s…Den had his little list and I had mine. Cauliflower gnocchi and baked falafel was at the top of mine while Den searched for honey comb honey and a strange Norwegian Crisp Bread…plus I was out of Trader Joe’s frozen garlic cubes and frozen basil cubes…both incredible time savers.
I am still reading this but I feel guilty because it’s a library book and I am not going to review it…so…I ask myself why am I feeling guilty? Reviewing simply changes reading…for me anyway. I still love reading but I am always thinking about what I will say about a book. Plus I feel guilty when I don’t read lots of books in a week. I hate guilt. I hate saying no to a book. My dilemma? Yep!
I started this one…thinking that it’s not my kind of book and I wouldn’t love it and I would put it down right away…but it’s so lovely I can’t stop reading it…I did not read Under The Tuscan Sun. The food descriptions and just the way this author writes…kind of riveting…kind of thought provoking.
But I also have started all of these…and stopped…but with the knowledge that I will get back to them…soon, I hope.
Finally my eco friendly Allbirds came…truly? The most comfy casual shoe I have ever worn. This summer version is made out of trees! Allbirds guarantees that if after a month you hate them? Send them back for a total refund! These are not going back!
So…we have finally figured out why the robin is so obsessed with our front door and every window surrounding the door and even the window over the door…she is beginning to build a nest in my beautiful new wreath. She just started the gathering part. So…we gently took down that wreath and put up the older one…usually this robin builds a nest under our deck…there are so many high up spots where her nest is always safe…what was the attraction of the front door? We love all animals but this was not a good idea for this robin.
Off to read,,,hopefully without guilt…
