Some days you just can't get a darn thing done. I had to buy a few groceries this morning. Well, a few groceries that were $93.00...from Walmart.
You can imagine how many plastic bags were used to hold those groceries. Let me tell you, every single handle broke on every single Walmart bag as I reached to take off that round rack. Every one! The cashier looked at me like maybe it was my fault but it was not me. It was a sorry lot of bags. She said, be careful loading these into your car. It was a job, and it was an even bigger job bringing those plastic bags with no handles in the house once I got home. And that's not all. The ten pound bag of russet potatoes riding on that rack under the buggy, decided to fall off as I was going through the parking lot to the car. The bag fell off and I ran over it. It lodged under the buggy. I managed to lift the front of the buggy enough to pull the potatoes out but the stress on the bag made it pop open and out rolled three big potatoes.
Friends, I made it home, unloaded and put everything away and threw that wad of Walmart bags in the trash. I need to start carrying my own reusable grocery bags. We need to do away with those plastic bags anyway and keep them out of the landfills, off the sides of the road, and out of tree branches.
On a brighter note, look what opened up right in the middle of all the same colored Iris...
This great big gold Iris. It caught my eye earlier when Eli and I were outside. My first thought was, it's one of those wild orange lilies.
A few dark purple Iris have opened in the front yard.
There were things on my list that I wanted to get done today but didn't. Now it's time for Poppy. Where do the days go! Thank you for visiting! Hopefully there will be tomorrow. :)
