But, in the afternoon, I wrote out the checks to pay my bills, did a bit of filing, went to the post office to mail the bill payments, went to one of the dollar stores to buy some gift wrap and tissues, and went to the grocery stores. I went to both the Armenian grocery store and Ralphs, which is a Kroger-affiliated supermarket. I didn't take any photos of what I bought, today, because, by the time I came home, I was hungry, even though I had eaten spaghetti and some melon for lunch. So, I put the groceries away and ate an almond croissant I had bought, and had a cup of tea.
My daughter had said she missed my shrimp curry, as I haven't made it in some time, so, today, I bought some shrimp ($3.69/lb.) at the Armenian store, as well as a can of coconut water @$.79 including the recycling deposit, vegetables (broccoli @$1.29/lb, carrots @ $.39, and a cucumber @$.50) and fruits (a pomegranate @$.99/lb, white peaches @$.79/lb, nectarines @$.79/lb, bananas @$.49/lb, and grapes @$.99/lb). My total came to $12.58.
At the regular supermarket, I bought a container of half and half ($2.99), a loaf of bread ($1.99), a package of bagels ($1.99), a package of cream cheese ($1.69), a jar of Nutella ($3.99), two containers of ice cream ($1.99@), and a package of 4 almond croissants ($4.99)! My total came to $21.62. This month's grocery budget will be augmented with what I've budgeted for the prayer gathering, although I haven't bought anything for it, yet.
I felt tired after the shopping, so, I rested and watched some TV (mostly news). After that, I put new bed sheets on daughter's bed, finished the vacuuming, and did the dishes. Then, it was time to pick up daughter from the airport.
On the way home from the airport, we picked up some Chinese food for dinner, as I hadn't cooked the shrimp, yet.
