The total yecch that was Thursday, became a Friday that dawned bright and sunny and dry, warming up nicely but still Winter-ish. We did our grocery shopping today instead of Thursday because the weather was so nasty, and therefore we missed out on our 5% senior discount, and this was a soda week too – oh well.
It’s so gorgeous today I think I’mma gonna walk up to the little market to get eggs. I know, you’re saying “But Grace you already went to the grocery store today” but the eggs in Harris Teeter are twice as expensive as at the little market. At the little market a dozen jumbo eggs from a local supplier is $2.29, at Harris Teeter a dozen large eggs from 2 or 3 states away are $4.49+ so you can see why I prefer the little market.
I don’t do holidays, particularly family type holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas. I think both are a crock of nonsense. And then of course there is my whole family history so, you know, no fond memories. When I worked it was nice getting all that paid time off but now I am retired and one day is pretty much like every other – every day is a paid day off. That said…
I do like sending Christmas cards.I like getting them. I like designing them. Okay, I just like cards in general, snail mailed of course. Last year’s card was very popular and I was hard pressed to top that this year. I don’t think I have but I designed a very nice card (I think), bright and cheerful and fun, so I’m happy.
Waiting in front of my building this morning for our Uber, I noticed that the two scraggly rose bushes on either side of the entrance still were blooming – the last gasp. Poor little frostbitten roses, determined to live and add their beauty to the world. Bless their little hearts!
