Well, we did it. We did our monthly shop today. Or perhaps I should now call it our bi-monthly shop, since we will have to go into the city again to get more of the big, heavy stuff we got only half of what we normally do. Yesterday, I had hoped to get some more … Continue reading Little progress, good progress and making do
We did things a bit differently this month, with our bulk shopping. A picture of Keith for you to enjoy. His recovery from a certain procedure at the vet has him luxuriating in softness! Such a spoiled kitty! Usually, we do one big trip at the end of the month, with the bulk of the … Continue reading Topped Up
Yesterday was our day to do our monthly shop, which always makes for a long day. We actually decided not to do a full shop, though, and will go back later in the month. Specifically, we didn't get all the cat kibble and litter we usually do. It gets really hard to pack the van … Continue reading Long Day
First off, a very Happy Thanksgiving to my US friends! I hope you all have a wonderful day, with much to be grateful for. ❤ David is thankful that he can now clamber his way to the top of my shelf, and stare at the ceiling. I must admit, your later Thanksgiving date makes it … Continue reading What’s up?
Today was that day of the month that always reminds me how much I dislike shopping! 😀 Actually, it went very well, all things considered. So I'm happy about that. I got an early start to doing my rounds, which meant it was still very dark as I switched out the memory card on the … Continue reading And early start in the dark
Today the girls and I headed into the city for our monthly shop. I know that there are people out there who actually enjoy shopping. I don't get it. I really don't! Okay, so today turned out to be a more complex shop than usual, but still... Ugh. It's just so draining! So here is … Continue reading People actually enjoy this?
Yesterday, when it looked like the predicted thunderstorms were actually going to pass over us, we shut down our computers and enjoyed the show. We didn't get anything too severe, so it turned out to be unnecessary, but why take chances? 😀 We did get some wonderful, much needed rain, though! First up, here is … Continue reading Catch up time
Today, we finally got our monthly shop in the city done. We got the main shopping done at Costco, and still had energy enough to take in a couple more stores. It made for a long, achy day. I forgot to take pain killers before we left. Ah, well. We encountered a couple of strange … Continue reading Strange things
Today was our Costco shopping day. This was my splurge for the month. 🙂 We'd seen some last year and came very close to buying one, but decided against it. I'm glad; I think this year's model is much better! Mason bees are a local variety, so it's one that we want to encourage. Especially … Continue reading Bee-utiful!
One of the nice things about February being such a short month is, pay comes in a bit early. Which meant we got to do our monthly shop before we started running out of too many things! The trip to the city wasn't quite uneventful. Not far from our driveway, there are open fields on … Continue reading All Stocked up – and trying something new
