I went down to Springfield to pick up the vacuum that I bought online from WalMart (a Shark Navigator Pro Lift-Off if you care). Usually, I listen to Audible books when I drive to Springfield or Bloomington-Normal, but today, I felt like listening to music. So I drove down listening to Bonnie Raitt and singing occasionally. Nice day for a drive.
My first stop was at Meijer (grocery store). I had planned to make some hummus, and had a recipe for it that called for tahini (ground sesame seeds), and I knew that Meijer had it. However, it was pricey, and they had some ready made hummus there that was a lot cheaper, so I bought them instead. Sometimes it pays not to cook.
My next stop was to pick up some food for Harlee. I managed to miss the turnoff for the store and also drive past the store without noticing it. I finally backtracked and found it. The store also had a buy one get one 50% off sale on kitty litter, so I got that too. Sheesh, Harlee's canned food is expensive -- $1.50 a can!
I decided that given my spaciness, I needed to eat something, so I went to Golden Corral, which is a buffet all-you-can-eat place. Sheesh, it was expensive ($17.99)--more than what I had read online, but I was hungry. I did gorge myself, and the food was good, as well it should be. Not planning a trip back there any time soon.
Then I picked up the vacuum. Afterward, I went shopping to pick up a few things at that WalMart, and saw some herb plants (mint, rosemary, basil, and Italian parsley), so I got them. I'd like to grow some dill, chives, and thyme as well, but it's late in the season to get them, so I might have to start them from seed.
Then I finally went home. I snuggled with Zara for a while, which was sweet and peaceful until she smacked me when I tried to get up. Obviously I don't understand that my station in life is to be a cat pillow.
Now I want to do some stuff online, and then work on the kitchen. My decluttering group is working; I'd probably blow working on it off if I hadn't said publicly that I was going to work on it.
