On the way home from work yesterday -Milk (we were out) and a frozen pizza for dinner.

Veggie combo pizza (no cheese, add garlic) from the joint across the street. They do nice work. (Last non-food purchases were anniversary/Valentine gifts for my wife.)

Small bean salad thing from the Union South deli for lunch yesterday. Jude bought me a croissant this morning, though, because he is still best pony.

Just back from the local farmer's market -- bread (baguette) tomatoes and green onions this week. Am about to make a major purchase, though: after two years of using a $50 toaster oven, I'm replacing the regular oven this week.

Will also be buying wine and general groceries today. In that order. Priorities.

Got a couple skeins of regionally produced yarn yesterday and needles to match. Now, I have to get card stock to make a card - a friend who wants to learn to knit is getting lessons and provisions as a birthday present.

Headed to Nashville in a bit to do our monthly "groceries you can't buy in the armpit of Kentucky" run. Will make a brief stopover in St. Elmo, KY for some local bourbon and rum from MB Roland Distillery.

Preparing for the zombie apocy-lips?

well, i did a sad estate sale. the crimes of the 70's on a nice 1920's house. lets see. i paid $7.80. i got a nice thick glass voltive holder, a ceramic tiki toothpick holder, a vibtage russian hand pained kohlkoma spoon w/ a long handle, a cat book , + a framed priitive print of an obese cat in a bathtub. keep the voltive holder, cat bok for mom, the rest try + ebay. did i mention the cat pee smell? that you don't find at the mall.

Today I bought laundry detergent.

Not very exciting.

It's the annual 20% off bag sale at Ace Hardware and I got, as I always do this time of year, the filters for our humidifier.

My life sucks.

eyes and eyelids and a nose to repair a stuffed toy. They're not here yet....

Last non-food purchase was some cleaning wipes and a plastic drain thing for the sink.

About to make major purchase of a new office chair to replace one bought in 1994. I've looked at the local Staples and almost all the chairs are black and very office-looking. The chair I'm replacing I bought from Quill and I'll check their web site later today.

Heading out to Dwight's for a plate lunch of barbeque with corn bread and then off to Harbor Freight for some spade tip drill bits to get our kitchen table clear of computers by moving the network routers and Wi-Fi to the attic. While I do miss the NFL, I definitely get a lot more done off-season.

Cat litter for them, because they were giving me the stink eye. A cuke and a tomato for my favorite taboule salad.

Tickets for my best friend and I to go to Dance Flurry in Saratoga Springs where we danced until midnight!!

New hemp wallet. Old one had fallen to bits. I got it off the internet. It should arrive Tuesday.

Besides food...I was a very bad girl at Lush yesterday (Saturday) and right before that a little less bad at the Louisiana Music Factory (involved some stuff for me and Boo and a couple of birthday gifts).
