This morning was my weekly Aldi excursion. I had to tack on a stop at Drug Emporium to buy a supplement for Lucy also. Two notable things happened at Aldi. One was that there was a man there who was a dead ringer for Christopher Lee (no British accent though). The other was that my friend Joan showed up in the checkout line behind me. I had been planning to call her when I got home, so it was great to get to chat in person. She helped me sack my groceries and then walked all the way to the car with me and helped put them in the trunk.
In the afternoon I went to Walmart to get the things I can’t get at Aldi, and had a nice cup of tea. Later I walked in the gym and then bought pizza for the family before coming home and weeding some more of my roses. I had a terrifying encounter with an insect that came flying out of the ground when I disturbed it, but thankfully I was not stung.
Yesterday I forgot to mention that my first forget-me-not is blooming! I planted quite a few of them in hopes of getting them to bloom in time for Mercy’s wedding. Well, they’re a month early. Still very pretty and TINY. Those flowers are less than a quarter-inch across!
