Tuesdays are my "running errands" day. Today's errands were determined by a text from the pharmacy stating that a prescription was ready for pick up and an email from the library stating that the book I had requested and put on hold has come in. My plan was to go to the library, first, then, go to the pharmacy, putting gas to the car on the way, and, maybe the dollar store, next door to the pharmacy, or the grocery store in the same mall complex.
I hadn't felt hungry before I left the house and hadn't eaten, but, of course, on the way to the library, I felt hungry! So, I picked up a hamburger from the fast food place that is near the library. It came to $2.05 with tax. I sat in the car in the library parking lot and ate my hamburger and then, picked up my library book:
|The Occupied Garden by Kristen den Hartog and Tracy Kasaboski|
This is a book that was recommended by my friend Bushlady. I am looking forward to reading this.
Then, on the way to the pharmacy, I stopped for gas. I paid $3.59 per gallon and put $40 worth of gas to the car.
At the pharmacy, I picked up my prescription refills. I also had a $5 store coupon that was going to expire later this week. I picked up a box of laundry detergent that was on sale for $5.94 (regular price $10.49) and paid the difference.
Then, I decided to go to the dollar store. I bought some groceries and a few other household items. My daughter had recommended the frozen barbecue wings, so I bought a bag and I bought this "can" of peaches in 100% juice to try it. The "can" is plastic and see through! The peaches you see are the contents! It has a pull tab to open the top. The peaches weren't too bad. I prefer fresh fruit, but, I want to have some canned fruit on hand, too, in the earthquake supplies stash.

The chicken wings were $3.99 for 22 oz. The bananas were $.49/lb. and came to $.70. Everything else was $1 each, including the "golden dewlicious" melon. The groceries came to $13.70.
My entire receipt came to $25.45 because I bought some household items, as well - batteries, rubber gloves, sponge cloths, new pot holders, and baking soda for the fridge, cat litter box, and cleaning.
|"What did you buy, Mummy?"|
|"This smells good, but, I'll mark it with my scent, too!"|
I put everything away and had a cup of tea.
Later in the evening, daughter's friend came over to try on the dress with the shoes she is planning to wear and I got the correct skirt length. I am glad I didn't cut anything off, yet, because I have to make the skirt a little bit longer than originally thought.
I tried some of the chicken wings for dinner, along with some of my chicken soup, with some of the canned peaches for dessert.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Gas for the car
- Drama-free medication refills at the pharmacy
- I didn't cut off the extra length on daughter's friend's dress!
Plans for tomorrow include going for my blood test, doing some housework, and sewing.
How was your Tuesday? What are your plans for Wednesday?
