The To Do List
I remembered my grocery list ! Way to go !
I did everything on my To Do List ... Brilliant !!
Now I am home, with a new mailbox sitting in the kitchen, waiting for a man to magically appear and put it on the post after removing the broken one .. no ...
I don't even want to learn how, thenk yew veddy much.
It is enough I found it and bought it.
In a hardware store that has employees who need to learn a bit of Customer Service skills.
You know, like don't look at the customer like they are speaking Martian when they make a joke about the Plow driver should pay for the mailbox ...
like, don't walk away from the customer while she is still speaking to you ... and while we are at it .... don't use that pitch black hair dye on your mustache anymore, it is bad enough on your hair..
So I bought scented votive candles and spent a nice time putting them all over the house then trying to get them lit with the new lighter that requires two hands.
Yes, child proof.
After that, I was so exhausted I had a big cup of Constant Comment tea and admired the candles and figured out more gifts to buy .... tomorrow maybe.
One gift is already on its way, thanks to 3 day Delivery !!
I realized that I have been eating couscous every day for dinner.
So I bought some macaroni .
I know ... no vitamins . I probably have no iron left in my blood. . so I figured since I am eating carbs all the time, I would have some frozen veggies .. with my macaroni.
It is no fun cooking for one.
I am not in Argentina where I would be spoiled for choice with who would deliver to my door . I could order from Quiero Mas and have spicy hot pasta with picante sauce.
Or the pizza place that makes The Best Empanadas in the world ... yes, really, the World !
Did I mention we are buried in snow ?
I mean, ...really, buried.
I am pouring seeds out for the birds, they all love me.. there are deer prints in the snow each morning and something else and it is not human and I won't think anymore about it.
So .. have a good evening . .
Tomorrow is going to be very exciting.
If it doesn't snow anymore, I am driving to Great Barrington.
I will leave crumbs behind me as I go .. If I don't post tomorrow, come find me !
Maybe I should take chocolate with me ... in the spring they will find me .. in the car, chocolate all over my face .. a little cold but the sugar kept me going.
