I seem to have found my favorite fall flowers. I try to get some every year, but Publix is the only place I've found this particular color. I had them planted in the flower bed this spring, but Mike dug them up (even though I told him what they were), so I don't feel guilty buying more.
It's good to have that over with - except that tomorrow Mama wants to go in Wal-Mart for her prescription refills and have her look-around. It's been weeks now, and she needs printer paper and a bunch of other odds and ends. We'll fill in our groceries with the things that were too expensive to buy at Publix.
Boring as it can be! This just might be interesting to a grandchild one day who is looking to discover how things were in the old days - and we might enjoy looking back at it if we live another decade or two and remember these as the good old days.
