I put in an order for groceries, last night, and selected the pick up time of between 12 noon and 1:00 p.m., which seems to work out well for me.
Today's grocery order had everything I ordered and there were no substitutions.

4 containers tofu shirataki noodles, @8 oz; @$1.69 = $6.76

1 box corn flakes (24 oz.) = $5.49
1 bottle vegetable oil, 40 fl. oz. = $2.99
1 bottle Tajin lime seasoning mix (5 oz.) = $2.49
1 lb. salad mix = $4.49
1 lb. coleslaw mix = $1.79
1 bag frozen green peas (12 oz.) = $1.00

The total came to $74.98
Once again, my regular grocery budget for the month is $250 for two people. Plus, I still have almost $80 ($79.61 to be exact) left from what was carried over from the August and September grocery budgets.
In addition to picking up the groceries, I cleaned the fridge, brought in the trash cans, practiced the piano, did the dishes, and cleaned the litter box. Still need to put away the laundry to complete my To Do list for today.
Neighbor S called and we settled on the date I will resume piano lessons with her - Thursday, November 18, at 5:00 p.m. I have four pieces to practice till then.
I also called friend R to check on her; she had her booster shot, today. I, too, received a notification from the pharmacy that I was now eligible to receive my booster shot; need to schedule that. Later, I texted cousin N and chatted on the phone with aunt C.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Online grocery ordering and curbside, contactless pick up
- Essential workers and service personnel
- Being able to afford a few extra groceries
- A safe drive to the grocery store and back
- Working appliances
Today's joyful activity was waking up to a warm house in the morning! Such a blessing!
Plans for tomorrow include tending to the garden with M and taking some soup and groceries to friend R.
