Now, I need to get away from the computer and put away the purchases. Cats are fed and off the freezer so I can put muffins in there.
That's why I never went shopping with a husband.

With all this chatter about apples, I want to go apple picking. I loved going over to Wanatchee, Eastern Washington, and get some of the biggest apples. It was like getting a whole meal with just one apple. As much as I hated going over the mountains, it was so worth the trip. Now we have an apple farm just 15 minutes from where I live in Peabody. Went there last year. Not this year. By they time my daughter gets permission to drive, the season will be over.

Watching "The Voice" and eying the huge envelope with Shrek's Medicare plan in it...haven't decided if I'm going to look at it or not. If we don't do anything, I won't have to change all his prescriptions, etc. to a new plan. We've already been told that he has the best health plan for Med B AND prescriptions, by disinterested parties.

These apples are really sweet, worth the price! I'm ok spending a little more on something that is so good for you. We will be going to the mountains next week so maybe I'll get some great local apples for eating and some for cooking.

We had a perfect day!

We were at the Wildlife Park for 3 hours, walking around, feeding the animals etc...it was such a lovely sunny, warm day too

Then we went out to lunch and had a huge meal...great day

My Steve is the opposite...he loves looking around with me, especially grocery shopping...I love it when we can go grocery shopping together as Steve puts lots of great treats in the trolley

About twice a year I buy French's Fried Onions as a snack. I love the flavor of the onions. Well, they now have out one with Cheddar cheese. Save your money. The cheese overpowers the onion flavor. I will go back to the original.

In general, I refuse to shop. SO shops. She goes alone. I don't shop, I go to buy. The exception is kitchen stores and supermarkets. I can walk around either to see what's available.

I'm with you on that, Andy. Kitchenware stores, supermarkets, ethnic food markets, and pet supply stores are my exceptions. There I can walk around and gawk at things (and buy). Otherwise, I go in, get what I need, leave. I don't wander around. I guess I'm in the "lousy shopper" class. I can shop on the Internet from the comfort of my own home...
