So I bit the bullet, made a list this AM, and set out after work to try and be productive as possible. I first stopped at a Target by my place. Was happy that I was able to get some of the cardstock I needed to get (without having a make a trip to a craft store. Was very disappointed that I could not find a fountain water bowl. I guess I'll try and go somewhere else tomorrow AM and pick one up.
Although I am very happy with the selection of gluten-free products of Wild Oats, I would have had to stop at Target with frozen and fridge foods in my car. Or go back the way I had already been. So I chose Trader Joe's since it was close to Target, and on my way home anyway. I scored with organic soups and stock broths that were gluten-free, cheap wine, and veggie chips. I'm going to try the tomato soup tonight with some jasmine rice - simple but effective.
I'm still impressed how quickly the monsoon clouds can build. I was in Target for 30 minutes - and saw the looming clouds over the Catalina mountains. Three minutes later, I was at Trader Joe's, and remained for 20 minutes. When I left Trader Joe's, I saw the clouds were even darker. Ten minutes later, I was home, thanful that I'd be home to watch the storms. Hopefully it will come.
