Thanks, Taxy!

I made it home with all my shopping done. Hopefully a few beers will take away some of the pain.

All the groceries are put away.

Now, I'm working on my meal planning using my new goodies.

It's my favorite part of my favorite day of the month (payday).

Tomorrow will be prep day, chopping, packaging and freezing various goodies, but no hurry.

I'm really sore right now, but I'm in a great mood knowing I've accomplished everything I needed to.

Addie? Did you make it home yet?

Thanks, AB. I mentioned your post to Himself. He said the "new" Windows 10 looks and acts a lot like the old Windows 7. Seems that Microsoft caved in to the wants of their customers. Go figure!

Nothing like a little alcohol rubdown from the inside.

I think you're right. I feel better, but not up to par. I'm still awake, but ready to hit the sack. I'm just afraid I'll wake up feeling more sore.

*sigh*

Getting old sucks!

I did. It took us 1.5 hours to shop and we both got everything on my list.

This month I tried to stock up on all cash items. I won't have to buy detergent, bleach, paper towels, and a few other items for about four months. I already had quite a bit of meat left in the freezer from last month. I just don't eat as much in the warm weather.

It not only sucks, but it is hard work.

Question

I saw something unusual on my way back from the garden centre and it got me wondering...

On the pavement, outside some houses (i.e. not a centre or anything like that) was a discarded pot of exotic fresh flowers - seemingly flung out, since they had come away from their container and oasis. I gathered up some white lillies, cornflowers and greenery to take home but it got me thinking about how they had come to be there. Was it after an occasion (in which case why fling them like that) or, maybe, an occasion that went badly wrong?

Feeling better today so I'm tackling a project that I've been wanting to do for a while. I bought an older Kitchenaid K5ss back in April and its awesome, but we'll used. It's also an almond color with scuffs and just not attractive to look at. I'm painting it with copper spray paint! So far it looks really cool. Tomorrow I'll touch up any missed spots and put a protective clear coat on it. I'm also replacing the cord on it, the original is/was white and has seen better days. I'm pretty excited to see it complete.

We will need to see the pic when it is all done.

Right now I am cursing Comcast, Windows, Norton, and a few other companies that are living inside my computer. It seems like they have all chosen today to install something they think I can't live without. And they just have to cause a restart. Nothing ever works without a restart.
