My first Monday in my new chapter. I've mentioned to some that this big move is almost like an opportunity to reinvent myself. Instead of preparing for a big change, I can now live a big change.
Some things may seem silly, but I think silly and simple is better way to start.
For instance, using a list to go shopping. Buying what I know I will USE before it expires!!
Planning ahead, for meals, for shopping trips, for chores.
I asked Lynn last night what he wanted for dinner, and he put in a request. So that is what I went to the store to purchase today. The St Helena Safeway will probably be my most often go to grocery store. Yes, things are a bit more expensive but it sure is fun to see some different labels. I made the decision while standing at the meat counter to make the marinara sauce with ground turkey instead of ground beef. Maybe I can make the transition to using turkey where ever I used ground beef.
The Farmer's Market is on in Napa again tomorrow, and I will go there! I want to also find a reasonably priced placed to get some pots for the deck, and first build an herb garden. I'm told I can grow herbs here just about year round, how exciting!
I did buy a fresh basil plant to have here on the counter. Just putting my nose in there and inhaling deeply makes me swoon....again silly.....
More to come after I find my printer, so I can load some photos to use.
