My mother stopped driving a few years ago. I am her chauffeur for wherever she needs to go. She prefers to grocery shop multiple times per week. I prefer to shop once a month for the majority of it and weekly for the little things like milk and bread. We have reached a compromise on our different styles. We shop weekly for a big shopping and then one other time during the week we shop at the less crowded but more expensive store. Often I buy nothing on these trips. I’ve got enough to get through a few more days. Today I did have to pick up a few things for cookie baking for events happening this weekend. I also needed something to donate for the raffle basket being made by N’s class for the holiday breakfast. I don’t know what made me walk down the magazine aisle. I normally avoid the temptations like People and Southern Living. But down that aisle I went and imagine my shock to see a knitting magazine at the grocery store! I haven’t managed to grab 10 minutes to look through it yet but the pure joy of finding something so unexpected carried me through the rest of the shopping trip and the afternoon.
Sorry about the flash in the photo. I couldn’t get a good photo without the flash. Also I searched but couldn’t find a link to this magazine anywhere.
