Seriously people??? We all know there will be a new sale everyday from now until Christmas. Besides, this is Small Business Saturday, which means that you can avoid all of those big box stores and spend your money at a small local business. If you live in my town, you can buy from me online and I will even be happy to deliver it to you free of charge. Insert large smiley face here!!!
So, you are probably asking yourself what the title of my blog post is all about. Well, the cupboards are bare, and I do mean bare. There is not a crust or crumb to be had. As I sit here enjoying the play of the light on the bottles in my window,
I think of what I can do to keep from going out. I've dusted, I've vacuumed, I've even mopped, (sorry, I draw the line at dragging out that iron) so I am running out of things to keep me at home. I know I can call and check on my mom. Oh wait, I've already done that. SIGH!!!
You see, the problem is that Trader Joe's and Whole Foods are both over by the big mall and that means nothing but trouble. Yes, I can take the back road to Trader Joe's, so I guess I am going to have to bite the bullet, make my list, and just do it. Besides, the thought of making nutty loaf for dinner is kind of spurring me on.
So, if you are out there today and you see someone singing along to Christmas carols and waving at cranky old drivers, that will probably be me, and if it isn't well, just wave back anyway. They probably are on a grocery shopping mission, too.
