So much for taking it easy on my day off work. My car was almost due for an oil change, so instead of waiting a few weeks before getting the job done, I decided to take advantage of the good weather today, and make the drive up to Oak Harbor and get my car taken care of.
MrC and I did some shopping at Walmart while the oil change was being done, filling a shopping cart with cat food, cat litter, bird seed and a few things for us humans. Seems the critters faired quite well on this shopping expedition. I found a few more things to include in the package I am sending to New Zealand for my daughter's 39th birthday in November, and also a Christmas gift. The post office has a pretty good deal, on a flat rate, for a fairly good sized box, which when filled, can weigh up to 20lb. I was surprised at how much I managed to cram into the box.
We stopped at our favorite Chinese buffet and came away with tight tummies, as we always do, made one more stop at the dollar store, where I found a few more goodies I could not live without *grin* Then drove home to unload the car.
Does anyone else have the same feeling of satisfaction when they have placed all the new foods, etc. neatly on the shelves in the pantry or cupboards, perhaps knowing if the power goes out, or some other emergency arises, there will be food and supplies to survive on?
Tomorrow the temperatures are supposed to be in the 60's so perhaps I should get outside and finish up cleaning all the debris from the vegetable and flower gardens. All too soon it will be miserable outdoors and I will hibernate for the winter, sitting by the fire, reading one of the many books. I have been collecting over the summer months.
