I picked up a grocery shopping order, today. My daughter helped me place the order, last night, and we selected an afternoon pick up slot, between 2:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. Around 1:30 p.m., I received a text stating that some items were not available, but, I had the option of accepting substitutions for some of them, which I did. Some of the items I ordered, such as salmon and plain yogurt, however, didn't have any substitutions available. But, the pick up went smoothly and I was home within the hour. My daughter quickly disinfected and put away the majority of the items for me, which was much appreciated.
My last grocery pick up was almost three weeks ago, on January 11. I think the next grocery trip will probably be in another three weeks or so.
One of the items I had ordered had been a frozen pizza. Regularly priced at $6.99, on sale for $4.99, with an additional $1 off digital coupon, it came to $3.99. I baked it for a late lunch while daughter made us a salad to go with it. According to the nutritional information on the box, a serving size was 1/4 of the pizza and had 320 calories! We could have easily eaten half the pizza, each, in one go, but, we both paid attention to the recommended serving size! The other half of the pizza will be for our lunch, tomorrow.
Later in the afternoon, M came over to tend to the garden. He weeded and pruned and tidied the place up. Afterwards, we sat and had a cup of tea and a chat.
In the evening, daughter had a virtual watching party with a group of friends, where they watched a movie together, online. I watched news, did a bit of crocheting, washed two more wool sweaters, poured baking soda and vinegar (followed by a kettle of boiling water) down a slow draining bathroom sink drain to clear it up, and cooked a cashew curry (had put the cashews to soak, earlier).
Today, I am grateful for:
- A sunny day
- Being able to order groceries online and pick up "curbside" (in the parking lot, actually)
- A safe trip to the grocery store and back
- Daughter's help with disinfecting and putting everything away
- M's help with the garden
Today's joyful activity was having tea and chatting with M.
How was your Saturday? What are your plans for Sunday?
