A brainstorm! – As I was listening to the traffic report on the radio, I realized there isn’t any. Nothing to report. No accidents. No jams. No nothing. I wish they would change that to a people traffic report. It would go something like “10 cars in the Starbucks drive-through,” “20 people waiting to get in Costco,” “don’t even think about going to Target, line wrapped around building.” That would be so helpful. If you have to do a supply run, it’s so much easier if you can get a handle on when it’s busy.
Thank you Jeff Bezos – We make a national sport of bad mouthing successful businesses. This week I am grateful to Jeff. He overnighted (not him personally) the diabetic supplies I needed for my cat. I worried that it would take at least a week but it didn’t. No extra charge with Prime. I thank Jeff, the pick/packer who filled my order and the delivery guys that made it all happen. Thank you!
The irony – This would be a great time to prep the garden and clean out the pond. Lots of time and no interruptions. Unfortunately, Mother Nature has different ideas. Looking at the long range weather forecast, the next time I will have two nice warmish days together to clean the pond is next weekend. That’s a full three weeks later than normal. We have been having unseasonably cold and rainy weather for April.
On a good note – My tomatoes are galloping along. They like heat. I have them under a grow light and they are doing very well. They’ve been transplanted to bigger pots. Now they just need to grow a bit more. By the time our soil is warm enough to plant, there will be buds on them.
Groceries – I have always been interested in what other people buy in a grocery store. I check out the carts. Sometimes I ask if I can join them for dinner. It is inspiring. I am currently picking up groceries for my brother and his wife. They get more stuff than we do. They are doing creative cooking during this lockdown. I have bought them a lot of yeast, all the baking supplies and enough eggs to serve a quiche to the 6th fleet but those aren’t the real surprise. The real surprise is that amount of half and half they go through. I am convinced my sis-in-law uses it as a skin treatment. For age 90, her skin looks like a 70 year old.
So how was your week?
