Out and About

 I did something yesterday that I haven't done in ages.

 I picked up my car keys and walked out all by myself to go shopping. Our new Marshall's opened up a couple of weeks ago so I decided to go check it out. It's the only one in the county.

 It's small. Like everything else, we always get a mini version of everything. You should see our tiny Walmart. I checked out the home goods first. That's what I'm interested in.

 There wasn't much on the short little shelves but I did find some fig jam, some maple flavored coffee and a set of fall dishcloths to bring home. I also bought a new dog dish for Pup. I had broken hers. She's been eating out of the cat dish. She doesn't mind but I do.

 Next door to the new Marshall's is a new Harris Teeters. Wow....The array of prepared food knocked me over. I've got to bring The Mister here for dinner. He's going to go nuts over the sushi chef.

I didn't buy anything but I did check out the bread. I judge a store by it's baguettes and these were just being put out. They were nice and warm and....CRUSTY. I love a crunchy baguette. Now I'm wondering why I didn't buy one. It would have been lovely with the fig jam. Oh, well. Next time.


  1. How fun! I need to find a Marshall’s to browse in. And I, too, love a good crunchy baguette. I am concerned about the hurricane since it looks like it could be close to Mandy’s old house in Edgewater and therefore to you too. Take care my friend. I’ll be praying for you.

  2. It's fun to explore new stores. Mmmm, the baguettes would be perfect with a bowl of hearty soup.

  3. What a good shopping trip and nice to go alone for a change! The fig jam and baguette sounds lovely!

  4. Fig jam. Oh yum!!!!!! Ive been shopping more than usual as well. Zach s new apartment needed some little things to make it cozy

  5. I could go for one of those lovely baguettes myself! There's only one market that has what I consider "good" (i.e. lovely hard crust) bread around here and it's a bit out of my usual shopping area. I may have to take that trip now!

  6. Ooh fun! We have a Marshalls here, but I think it's just clothes.

  7. Sounds like you had a fun solo trip!
