I go to Baywood for meat and vegetables. HEB for meat and vegetables. Kroger for most of my needs....and Wal-Mart for the rest. From now on, Wal-Mart for ALL of my boxed tea!
I saw a potion on Pinterest for a cleaner, but didn't get it pinned. I think it was Dawn and vinegar, so I bought the ingredients today. I mixed some up and put it in a new spritzy bottle. I can't wait to use it. I'm not going to go so far as to say I *LIKE* to clean though. I'd rather pull weeds.
I like to buy different shape and sized noodles. I will even go to Randall's to find the ones I like for macaroni salad. I don't know what they're really called, but I call them Beautiful Noodles. I can hardly bear to buy plain elbow macaroni and I never buy angel hair.
I got some really green bananas today. Have you heard about the man that was SO old he didn't even buy green bananas?
Lydia and I eat cottage cheese, but it has to be this brand from Kroger and small curd. I eat it with salads and never have learned to like it with fruit. Nosiree.
I learned to use real cream in my coffee in Alaska. Everybunny knows that is not a good idea.....so I buy this instead. Always get it at Wal-Mart. I like it better in the plastic bottle with purple writing from Kroger....but it costs more.
This little skinny pork chop was from HEB. There is a shelf of meat at their store that I always check for this to be marked half off. I like them for breakfast meat and for sandwiches.....
I am going to read up on Potassium........Kroger had buy one get one free but Wal-Mart had a generally better price since I only wanted one. How do you like my REAL paper plate? Target for $1. I LOVE it. I would have a whole set of these.
May as well get Kraft at Wal-Mart because their store brand is just a few cents behind. We like to mix this with cream cheese for a fruit dip.
Rule: ONLY eat croutons with a salad. Never right out of the bag.
A few years back I said I'd like a pallet of colorful calico fabric........and a pallet of canned milk. I can still make that statement today. We use LOTS of canned milk. I like to get it at Kroger because you don't need a can opener for it.
I'm still smiling! We have found that the k-cups are a luxury.......the last four boxes I have purchased have been almost 1/2 off their regular price. I got three boxes at CVS for $3? something each....and today I got two boxes at a VERY good price. Yes, the boxes were bonked, but it's worth it.
I got three little bottles of Oxydol at our $$ Store for fifty-cents each. I think I remember my mom using Oxydol tablets? in our washing machine when I was a little kid. I'm pretty sure she let me toss them in the water. I have used lots of fabric softener.........and this yellow Suavitel is still my very favorite. I got this at HEB for some reason today.
This box of Snuggle was also marked down at Kroger..........can't you just smell it? I think I'm going to go wash something so I can use them.
grrrrrrr. I got this for a dime today at my favorite thrift store........that's all fine and dandy. Too bad the cd's were missing. Lydia was all excited about listening to them. She has always wanted to learn German.
These vitamins were also marked down at Kroger.......just what I needed. For people like me over the age of 50. If I take these regularly, my blood/iron count stays high so I can donate blood.
I bought these two cans of beans just in case I wanted to make somewhat of a stew.......ring sausage, cabbage, can of ro-tel tomatoes, and kidney beans. And maybe a jalapeno pepper. I try to make my own beans for recipes, but sometimes I need something quick.
Because sometimes I forget I need to make supper.
I would brush my teeth with something other than Colgate, but I would be an UN-happy camper.
I wore my stripey top today.................and my MOM necklace the kids got me years ago. I love being a mom and buying groceries. I love to pull weeds, play Angry Birds, drink coffee, listen to the KJV Bible on tape and wear flip-flops. Do you know how I know? Because I DO those things. What do you like to do?

My new see through phone.
I take pictures on purpose so they can
be my home screen
and lock screen.
I would never use one
that came with the phone.
I don't download ZEDGE either.
I make my own *ringers*.
Not that I'm a fan of Johnny Cash.......
but I sometimes wake up to him singing:
"the best part of waking up,
is Folger's in your cup!"
This is my newest craft.
I saw it on Pinterest....tried to pin it....our internet crashed,
I went back and couldn't find it.
So I had to just do it on my own.
I have some work to do.......
I don't buy lots of seeds, but I did buy this white morning glory package
I stick seed packages in the cart
while my husband buys glue and boards and electrical things.
He says he sees me do it.
The morning glory is on a plant no higher than "6 tall.
I DID fix up the sunflower picture.
I couldn't resist.
The tree behind them is going
with white flowers.
So much so that the limbs are bending,
some almost to the breaking point.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE
to plant things........rather forget about them,
and then have them come up and bloom.
We have hard humid summers, very humid.......
but we have an almost 12 month growing season.
Flowers are easy to grow down here in the jungle like weather.

These are yellow pictures I took today. I missed a few driving down the highway....like flowers and yellow cars....and now our yellow truck isn't here for me to take a picture, but there are plenty others!
My Friday morning yellow flowers.
My $1 water duck. It's just handy.
Rocks in a yellow pot in a crock.
A ruffly yellow pot.
This is the fabric I used for the retro dress I made.
I think the trees are already thirsty.
I keep this by my cinder block garden to water the little squares with flowers growing in them.
I guess somebody figured wide mouth coffee cups weren't a good idea.
So now we decorate with them.
Anybunny care for a cup of garden water?
I can't for the life of me think of what this is called.
It's kin to Moss Rose.
Anything I can add to my gardens that is yellow, I do.
I have a friend that loves yellow.
I love purple.
We call each other color names.
Here is the plastic lawn chair I just *had* to have.
It's not comfortable and we just move it around in our back yard.
A spare bubble blower.
Deco in the kitchen.
The pot holder in the back belonged to mom.
I love her stuff.
I bought a purse today for this price.
I'm glad I didn't give much more for it.
I'm not so sure I like it.
I've been told these are the SAME thing as peanut butter Girl Scout Cookies.
I bought these for a snack when we're shopping in Canton next week.
To go with coffee.
I made macaroni salad today.
I bought special noodles from Randall's.
Who wants ELBOW macaroni salad?
This is a pot holder a friend made me.
My middle name should have been donut.
Fine looking bananas.
I think my people don't eat them so I will
have to make banana bread
For the tummy bug.
Buy them and have them on hand.
Hang on my little yellow bunny.
A family went to the Bush factory and bought this for me.
I LOVE hominy.
Always buy a name brand,
never a store brand.
It isn't worth it.
Did you play with farm animals like this when you were young?
How UN-realistic can you get?
Kimberly's butterflies and flip-flop deco.
Her room is kind of tart.
This little baby sleeping in a flower is hanging in our hallway.
It's all we have to remember the baby we lost.

Only hers would have been purple.
I LOVE this lotion.
And yes, we have ants.

If so, what do you buy and use?

These ducks always make me sing:
Brighten The Corner Where You Are!
This is a card a little kid gave my husband.
My husband the bus driver.
It was a thank you note.
Lydia drinking from a cup everybunny thinks I stole from a cafeteria or something.
The whole area around my kitchen sink has a yellow feeling.
Curtains from my mom.
Deco from thrift stores.
I wish there were a double layer German Chocolate cake in this.
Life is too short to use faulty pencil sharpeners.
I was in the right place (Bass Pro Shop)
At the right time (when they HAD duck calls)
And had the right amount of $$ (eleven dollars)
I was with my son and his wife for a little ammo buying trip,
when I bought this.
They bought me a Jamba Juice to drink on the way
home so my mouth would freeze up
and I wouldn't call ducks the whole way home.
I got the special noodles for macaroni salad at Randall's.
It is a beautiful store, but was like a ghost town.
At 3 in the afternoon on a Thursday, there was ONE lane open
and only three people checking out.
Nobody even had a cart.
I bought this nifty little bag.
I bet it will be a million years before it turns into mulch.
Now I'm seeing yellow things I should have taken a picture of.
My wonderful Snoopy back-pack.
Our old 1950's pencil sharpener.
And a Kansas sticker on our freezer.
Hope you liked my yellow post.
