I look at the calendar and think "It can't be the 11th of February already!" I have too much left to do in the next couple of weeks, and I spent at least an hour today working on the puzzle. I'd like to get it finished and boxed before I go to Milwaukee. Of course I will be doing the hardest part last - the blue sky! Thanks, Nancy, for the link to a product that allows you to roll up the unfinished puzzle and store it. I might look into that. (Click to enlarge).
My grandchildren leave me little love notes all over the house, and of course I can't move them or, god forbid, throw them away!
I drove to Costco this morning and was sad but not too surprised to see that gas has risen from $3.07 to $3.37 in just about a week. I'm not sure why the increase is so high as the cap in trade tax amounted (supposedly) to 10 or 12 cents per gallon. The average person just can't get a break for too long and then it's yanked away from us.
In considering my wardrobe I am going to have to go shopping before I go to Milwaukee. I have relaxed my style of living and dressing so drastically that I have little to wear to an "occasion" especially in the cold weather. I'm going to get something that I can wear with my new sandals, and if I have to trudge through snow in my gym shoes and carrying my sandals in a bag, then I'll do that.
At Costco I bought a bag of organic frozen mixed fruit to go into my protein shakes. Usually I use frozen blueberries but this time I decided to vary the taste. I first picked up a bag of strawberries-blueberries-blackberries, then returned them to get a bag of 5 different fruits, including the three mentioned plus cherries and pomegranates. I tried it out after my walk today and oh my goodness, I've never tasted anything so wonderful! The only one of those fruits I've never tasted before is pomegranate, so that must be the wonderful flavor. I never tried them because I don't care for the looks of them! What a mistake. I usually add a banana or a couple scoops of ice cream to make the shake extra creamy, but with these 5 fruits it was the consistency of soft ice cream. That means I'll just have to eat the ice cream in a bowl.
I've yakked on long enough this evening, so I'll just say goodnight and see y'all tomorrow.
Tires, Windshield Wipers!
