I Had to Go to Food Lion

November 21, 2009

Doug talked me into it.  They have the carpet stuff that he likes to use.  I was hoping for butter pecan syrup, but it seems they don’t carry it anymore.  Bummer.  We bought a bunch of stuff that I know I wouldn’t have bought otherwise.  I also got a ham and a turkey.  Now I’ll have to cook them.  I like to make yeast rolls and apple pies, but all that smelly meat is too much.  I’m not a vegetarian.  I’m just not a big meat-eater—- or cooker.  My son is off on Thanksgiving and Friday so he’s coming down and I’ll have another person to eat it.  I am feeling better the last few days so I think I’ll be better this year.  I think going to the cemetery early this year was the right thing to do.

Polls

November 5, 2008

Since it was raining, we went to the polls after breakfast.  They are in the local fire hall and the whole process was quick and easy.  I did get to laugh at Doug when he forgot to hit the finished key which made it even better.  Having done our civic duty, we went to Food Lion.  We were low on canned cat food and they have more varieties than Walmart.  I bought some other things that Walmart doesn’t carry and I got a nice piece of salmon.  When we got home, I made a little marinade for it.  Since it was still raining, we decided get some other chores done.  We dropped off a little package for Nancy at the post office and picked up a prescription at Happy Harry’s.  I used to go to Eckert, but they really went down hill since Rite Aid bought them.  Also, Happy Harry’s carries a lot of products that are not tested on animals.  It’s so nice to have a variety from which to choose.  OK.  Where was I?  We headed to the bread store.  They had oatnut bread so we got three loaves, two for us and one for Win.  It’s his favorite, too.  I spotted an apple pie on the dollar table and cranberry bread.  What more can use ask for?  I hope I haven’t bored the life out of you.

Here are two reasons why blogging can be difficult.  Another is the fact that it is chilly here when it’s cold.
