That is lovely. What is the purpose of this? And you do have a beautiful child.

Vit, so I take it you are enjoying the order-groceries-online experience. I'll see how it goes. I foresee one problem: I can't read the ingredients from the website. I only ordered produce and stuff that I know the ingredients. I find that kinda stop-gap, 'cause so many items change the ingredients and I would only find out after buying it that now it contains, e.g., unfermented soy. Man that soy shows up in everything. There's soy lecithin in lots of chocolate, even Lindt!
finished placing my food order with 'relay' just now. today, just for me, they brought in some regular cantaloupe from a freelance produce co. in town. i like the fact that i have my choice of organic produce (or not), grass-fed beef, range-free chickens (or not) bakery baguettes or wonderbread, cheeses, imported from around the world, homemade in a local amish cheese store, or 'kraft singles' from a regular grocery store. they carry foods from three different organic type markets, including 'whole foods' and 'foods of all nations'. they deal with some 60 or more, small and independent vendors who have their specialties like seafood, exotic mushrooms or asian foods... a dozen bakeries, and another several dozen farms, ranging from dairy, to beef cattle, pig and chicken, fruit, and truck farms, most of them organic.
and taxy, i keep a magnifying glass handy for reading those super-maddening small-print food labels online. but that is honestly the only part of online grocery shopping that is a real pain. i love to peruse page after page of colorful fruits and vegetables, artisan and specialty foods, raw meats, grains,etc. this is what i meant when i said that 'relay' delivers groceries better than when i do my own shopping. for a nominal $7 fee, my grocery shoppers gather product from miles around--farm-fresh meats dairy and produce, fresh bakery goods, wine from local vineyards, herbs and spices of every conceivable form and variety. it would take me a full long day of shopping and miles and miles of driving, to replicate the sort of shopping odyssey these 'relay' folks are able to accomplish in about one hour.-- of course, they have the benefit of their humongous warehouse in addition to the actual supermarkets, where to do their marketing....
anyhooo, i wanted to wish you good luck with your first time food delivery tomorrow morning, taxy--hope it works for you....

Vit, that relay thing sounds really cool. I'm just ordering from a local supermarket. They didn't have any super tiny labels to read. :(
