But my temporal displacement also continues. Only moments ago I noticed that today is Friday, when all day I'd been thinking it was Thursday. My irregular sleep pattern for the last few days probably contributed to that confusion. But it means that I have only one full day between now and my next shopping trip, and thus I had to busy myself making a list. It turns out that if Safeway is not out of a couple of crucial items (as it was last time I visited) I should be able to get the seven dollar discount they are offering on purchases totaling seventy dollars or more this week.
The crucial items are cat-related, and I'd be getting them whether there was a basket discount or not, and since they add up to almost forty-two bucks, I've got only about thirty to reach the discount minimum, and that means I can buy a couple of things not on sale. As there are a few other items I'd be buying anyway, adding up to about twenty bucks, and I won't count them against the seven dollar discount, that means I'll get seven dollars off on about ten bucks worth of extra stuff. I really like the way Safeway does this. I end up with very low prices on things that would otherwise be luxuries I'd never buy. I haven't decided what they will be this time, but something that will be welcome during the upcoming hot weather is apt to be among them.
This has turned out to be a pretty good week for pleasant surprises. First, no PG&E bill, then a nice rain to water all my plants for me, and then bonus items from the store. Maybe I should pick up a lottery ticket Sunday. But, no, luck does not favor those who press it. I'll just wait and see what random chance has in store. I just hope it isn't a lightning fire.
