Up fairly early today and was greeted by a tomato plant covered in ready to pick fruits. In all 14 red orbs! Put 6 in a bag for my friend and one in my mouth. Yes, odd breakfast…tomato followed by an orange juice chaser.
The summer ick seems to have left, well, all but the cough. While out of action, my list for Costco had grown quite long and I did not look forward to hoofing it alone. Mentioned this last week to a friend. Turns out her list had grown too, so she suggested we go together.
While there I noticed they started carrying Frontline in packs of six for $69.99 vs. the set of three I bought yesterday at Unleashed for $59.99. Made a mental note of that. They also had teflon coated outdoor dog pillows which would have been perfect if I still had an outdoor dog like Alpine. Mr. B is definitely an indoor fellow though so didn’t pick that up. Did get one of their great rotisserie chickens for dinner and we split a bag of green beans and a box of strawberries. Perfect!
Just got back and honestly, I’ve never in my life filled a cart up like we did today! Every nook and cranny was packed. So I’m set for quite a while…like six months on some things. Even remembered to buy paper and ink for the printer. Hate when I run out of those. My printer is an Epson which I really like but if one of the two black cartridges runs out, it doesn’t function, even if the other black cartridge still has ink in it. It insists on a new canister of ink before it will print anything.
While there, we had a lavish lunch, hot dog and soda for $1.64. Yes, last of the big-time spenders. It’s the only place or time I ever have a hot dog. Sadly, I noticed that Costco now has their own brand of all beef franks, not the Vienna Red Hots and they weren’t as good. Was sorely tempted to get a berry slurpy or yogurt and fruit sundae after watching several people consume them but resisted. They looked sooo good as the temperature rose!
