Remember the days when you saw ‘safe’ used as an adjective it was probably describing ‘sex’? Now, we’re using it to explain shopping experiences. 🙂
Lowes opened at 8 a.m. yesterday, and we were there at 9:15 a.m. for a curbside pickup. I went to lawn and garden for potting soil. Insert your favorite expletive here.
It was like the Saturday of Memorial or Labor Day and fewer people had face coverings. What the heck, is the virus gone and no one told me? Not only was I trying to maneuver around way too many people, but it was kind of scary to not have other people taking recommended safety precautions.
Never was I so glad to finally escape to the parking lot where what did I see but a line of shoppers waiting to get in. Good luck.
We overwintered about 450 plants at a MG’s house, and we needed to move them out of his side yard.
I set up a rather simple page with a poster linked to a PDF spreadsheet on the MG WordPress site.
I sent emails out to MGs and 202 previous customers around 1 p.m. on Friday and by 9 p.m. we were sold out.
We pulled the orders at his house, and folks drove up in the driveway, handed a check/cash out the window, and the plants were put in their trunk. Next plant sale, I’d like the entire committee back instead of two of us pulling it off. 🙂
Everyone wore masks, and speaking of masks, does anyone else have the issue of their glasses fogging up. I’ve had suggestions to push it under my glasses or clean my glasses with glass cleaner – did both, it doesn’t make a difference. I’ll keep wearing my mask, but I sure can’t imagine what it’s going to feel like mid-summer.
Last week’s highlight was scoring a 24-pack of toilet paper, but today I have a Library book ready for curbside pickup!
Life is good today – gardening and a library book. Ah, a small fleeting sense of normalcy.
Best wishes that your Monday is a good one too. Stay well, shop less, garden more. 😎
