The supermarket ads come out tomorrow and I get to plan my weekly grocery shopping. Oddly, though I dislike shopping I love planning to shop. Wednesday morning I go to the web sites and see what's on sale, and I make out a list, which usually turns out to be the high point of the day. There are always disappointments when things I'd like to buy are not on sale, but there are always pleasant surprises when some bargain I hadn't expected to get shows up. Too bad I have to actually go to the stores to get the stuff.
It's not yet eight o'clock, when I can go out and water, and the night is already very dark. I was going to water the back yard early today, but I didn't wake up until well after nine o'clock, and the regulations require the watering to be done by ten. What I need this time of year is some sort of flashlight attachment to my garden hose. Then I wouldn't end up watering some bare patch because I can't see the plants, or watering myself because I'm trying to manage the hose and a conventional flashlight at the same time.
Four minutes to go. I might as well get out there.
