Went to Subaru at 8:30 this morning for them to check noise in brakes and to detail the car since it was paid for and not done when I bought it., It all should have been free, but cost $88. Somehow I think I got off easy. They also had to update the software per recall notice. What software? We picked it up, and it was washed, and inside sprayed with new car spray. They didn’t do anything else. Grrrr.
Then we headed to Trader Joe’s. Always a fun shop. Went to try the Tom Yom soup, but neither Hubby nor I liked it. I’ll go out for it next time. Bought 2 kinds of cheese, Cereal – their boxed Mapel Pecan is the best cereal anywhere. Bought organic blue algave and tofu, with no idea what I’ll do with them. Frozen Pad Thai in microwave now. Bottle of their summer brew (beer) in the fridge. Expensive bowl of soup.
Then we hit Pathmark. Beautiful pork loin on sale, and boneless, skinless chicken breasts reduced to $1.69 Also salad dressing (Natually Delicious) on sale and I had two $1 coupons. Couldn’t resist.
Stop & Shop for Frozen veggies and Klondike Bars on sale. Smuckers natural peanut butter too. At least it will take us a while to starve to death. Other than bread and fresh veggies, no shopping for at least two weeks. Now, the real reason for this last trip. When we originally got home, there were literally thousands of ants trying to get into my apartment., I thought the lawnmower blowers had blown dirt there, but Harry told me what it was. I ran inside and came back with black pepper, supposed to keep them away. They started to make sand castles with it. Ran back in and came back with cayenne pepper. They seemed to like this a bit less.I vaccuumed up everything I could, emptied the vacuum in a bag outside, and many, many ants are heading to the compacter. We rushed down to Stop & Shop for ant spray. Everything else we got there was superfluus. This experience rates up there with my top 10 horrific afternoons.
