I Lost My Head

 With great anticipation, I checked out the game camera yesterday.  It's a bad sign when the little red lights are ablaze.  It apparently had a bad case of battery diarrhea!  I couldn't even upload any images, they were so dead.  I can tell you however that kitty kitty (the brown one) came by eight times the night before looking for those groceries I have not been putting out.  

I required a trip to Costco to keep from going bankrupt purchasing those little AA denizens of power.

In the meantime, I lost my head.  This guy hangs in the spare bedroom closet.  He causes quite the stir when people think that's the door to the bathroom.  Sadly, his head disappeared into another realm.  Luckily I noticed a pumpkin on the shelf.  PERFECT!!!  It took a little work, but alas, Pumpkin Head now hangs on the door.  

Before wandering off to the store that sucks money out of your wallet like a vacuum cleaner, I finished up the border on this quilt top.  It's longer because it's actually a twin size.  I decided there was no use wasting all that extra fabric, so I sewed another row to the bottom.

So much fabric, so little time!!  This is just one wall.  I have another huge china cabinet full to the brim, along with a box or two on the floor.  I'm determined not to buy any more new fabric, but to use up all this first.  I'm hoping I live to be at least 93 because that's how long it's going to take.  

So off to Costco I went.  They open at 9:00 and what better day to be there than Monday morning when everyone else is off to work.  I only needed three things.  Like always, the pretty and definitely yummy things on the shelves make me lose my head. 

My plan was to stock up on stuff I could cook in a hurry during October.  The Patch will be open until 8:00 in the evening this year, so cooking is out of the question.  At least I remembered the batteries.

I am very disappointed to tell you however, that my Costco has installed four self checkout lines.  Too sad.    I mean really ... they are known for checking out goods in a timely manner.  Can you just imagine how long it's going to take for people to check THEMSELVES out??  Customer service definitely seems to be a thing of the past.     It's an illusion ... those are NOT ice cream bars.

I was even MORE shocked and disappointed when I got home and loaded everything into the freezer.  I lost my head ... I stomped on the floor and yelled WHY ME!!  Take a close look at the shredded chicken bowls I purchased.  Do you see the word cauliflower?  Yeah that was not what I was going for.  Now I actually have to eat HEALTHY!!  What's the fun in that??

My only satisfaction, giving me a little chuckle, is that the lady who saw me grab it from the freezer, told her husband to get the same box.  I rather imagine she didn't see "cauliflower" either!!  Yes I could take it back, but honestly, it's not worth the trouble.  I will begrudgingly force it down my throat.  You never know, it just might be DELICIOUS!!

It's time to check out the game camera (with new batteries) and gear up for the Magic Kingdom of Bingo!!!  Wish me luck training the two new people!!


  1. Cauliflower yuck … But… There’s a new fangled contraption on the market they’re called rechargeable ➕ batteries ➖ 🤷‍♀️

    1. I even have not one, but TWO. Problem is, the directions say NOT to use rechargeables in this camera. Why I have no idea.

  2. I HATE going into Walmart but need to about once per month. I noticed how open and wide the isles are now that they don't have enough 'STUFF' to "STUFF" every inch of open space they can get with STUFF! Sams, where I go once per week, has lots of empty shelf space, especially in the meat-fish-chicken area.

    1. Isn't that interesting? I'm pretty sure we are back to hoarding STUFF around here. Even Costco has more room than normal.

  3. Cute Mr. Pumpkin Bones. I see San Luis sourdough bread....yummy.

  4. Cute Mr. Pumpkin Bones. I see San Luis sourdough bread....yummy. Oh and biscotti. I love that stuff.
