This evening's excursion was to the Goodwill store, where there were no new books worth buying, and the Dollar Tree, where I picked up a couple of boxes of tissues, a three-pack of Nissin noodle cups, and two bottles of low-end-luxury soda; one root beer and one black cherry. There will be floats at some point during the coming heat wave.
One of the bus-accessible market did not send me an ad this week, so I'll have to use their web site to see if they have anything I want. The store across the street from that one doesn't have such this week, so I don't know if it will be worth my while to get out in the heat and go there tomorrow. There is also a Rite Aid in that shopping center, so I might check their ad too. But there would have to be something quite good to get me on a bus in tomorrow afternoon's 97 degree heat. Still, I hate not going anywhere all week, so I might make the effort. Depends on how early I wake up and how I feel. Today I wouldn't have gone out that time of day for anything.
Today I left dinner for late, since I don't like either cooking or eating during the hottest part of the day, so I have to make something now. There is some fresh corn to boil (the corn has been excellent this year) and some already cooked penne I can heat up in the microwave. I forgot to buy rolls for making garlic toast again this week, and the leftover hot dog buns really won't do as a substitute. It would be nice if there was a decent little bakery in the neighborhood that I could pop into for things like this, but I don't expect there ever will be. Bakeries are things you find in cities, not displaced suburbs that used to be (rumor has it) small towns.
