It must be a Wally World kind of morning, that is my destination also.

I really dislike the place, but they do have some items I have trouble finding in other stores.

Ours is very small. We used to go to the one 20 miles away and it had everything. We got one in our area, within 5 miles, during the past year, but they are small and don't have the same selection, but it is very convenient. Very often if you want something the shelf is empty. They are not as good at restocking like the bigger WalMart. But they do carry Smart Balance Heart Right Lite, which is hard to find around here, and that makes me very happy.

Cat, I think you have a wonderful and delightful imagination and sense of humor. You just have the knack for this! I loved your list for "What are you doing!" Do not say that your parents are odd. They sound perfect to me!

I think it's been 5, possibly only 4 days, since I even opened the door. Icy sidewalks, streets are treacherous. The chemical/salt applied on the streets isn't effective unless the temps are above 15 F. I don't need to go anywhere, except the excitement ? being cooped up has worn off. Cats aren't helping. The oldest has already done her morning chores, open every closet door that doesn't latch properly. Then I go around and close them again. Just so she will repeat again later. The youngest is busy traveling from one window to another watching the birds/ bird feeders. She can Hear but not see a flock of sparrows rustling in a yew bush near a window, The bush is all covered in snow, and she doesn't quite know what to make of this.

Olive oil and bungee cords...interesting purchase...

I have never been to a Walmart. Nor do I expect to be doing so in the near or far future.

Well, I have all the apples peeled and cut. Now I am waiting for the pie crust to warm up to room temperature. :

I have a question for all you cooks. When you are peeling a fruit or veggie, do you peel in one continuous strip or in small pieces? I peel round and round in one long strip. The peeling goes much faster. angel:

The best purchase I saw as a cashier was a can of whipped cream, duct tape and a disposable camera.
