Life in general is still awesome, but today deserves special recognition because all of my favorite fruits and vegetables are on sale at QFC! In fact, many of the foods I regularly purchase are on sale right now, so I’m probably going to make a second trip in the near future. I don’t like driving to places I can walk, so I had to be careful not to get more than I can carry home. That isn’t much, considering my little pea-shooters.
Also, the weather is still amazing, so I was happy to have an excuse to go out for a walk. It rained yesterday for the first time in ages, and the weather report all but warned us to settle in for at least a week of clouds. But no… we’ve got sunshine! Good thing too, since I need to take some pictures with my car right now.
When I left for the store this morning, I decided to leave my phone at home. I’ve long lamented that we’re so attached to those things that we can’t imagine life without them. And yet I still felt a small tinge of danger in leaving home without my lifeline to the world, like it wasn’t something billions of people have been doing for centuries. Perhaps it was less scary and more just plain weird.
But I knew where I was going, I didn’t need to talk to anyone, and my iPod shuffle is lighter. Of course, almost immediately after I got to the store, I saw avocados on sale and wanted to call Susan to see if there was anything I could bring to her house for dinner tonight. It would have sounded more like, “May I have the pleasure of teaching someone in Seattle the proper way to make guacamole?”
The food in Seattle is second to none, but I haven’t had good guac in God knows how long.
