Drove to town / Pharmacy / Little HEB

Drove to town to pick up our mail and prescriptions. HEB had a lot of vehicles in its parking lot but not as many as they usually do. That confirmed my theory that most people had once again stocked up and now the rest of us could do our shopping.

I wanted to fill my gas tank as I am down to a little more than a half tank not because I have gone anywhere but during the arctic front I tried to start up my car every two days or so to keep the battery from dying. The lines to fill up were long and as most of you all know...this gal does not wait in line unless it is a matter of life, death, or starvation.

Decided to use the drive-thru to pick up our prescriptions and then drive down to Little HEB where it is not as crowded. This store is small and as you enter you usually find the staples most people are looking for like water, toilet paper, paper towels, etc. This area was completely empty making the store look bigger.

Looked in my purse for my phone but forgot I left it on the passenger seat after having taken the above picture. The store was stocked though some of the usual items were noticeably absent. They had a limit on quantities but I only bought...one carton of eggs and one loaf of wheat bread of said items...the limit was 2 per customer.

I did buy my usual serranos, packaged salad, salt-free canned black beans, tomato sauce, and some wheat saltines.  I absolutely LOVED the dark chocolate Kisses I bought the last time and purchased some more. This HEB does not have a bakery so I was not tempted to buy a carrot cake or any other decadent goodies.

The sun made an appearance later than usual but it warmed up nicely this afternoon. The wind is what made it feel nippy this evening.  I am freezing it is 62 degrees in my bedroom right now.  I suppose if I took off my shorts and put on some warm pants it would help but I want to finish this post first.

Good night.  May you all have Terlingua Dreams.

Aunty Acid Saying of the Day

  1. Nice that you didn't have trouble getting your errands done.
    We are weeks away from your temperatures. So looking forward t it.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

    1. It was nice to be able to just walk in get what you need and walk out without standing in long lines or surrounded by large groups of people.

      Spring will be here before you know it and you too will be enjoying nice temperatures.

  2. I was all worried about your feeling so cold at 62 inside, and then you mentioned having on shorts. Well, for pete's sake. I myself haven't gotten out of sweat pants and long johns for more than a month, but I'm old. Not the same pair...day after day..I do have several sets.

    1. It was warm yesterday so I had on shorts. I have the vents closed in my bedroom because I sleep better when it is cold (not freezing) and I can cover up with my San Marcos blankets.

      Lol, on your sweat pants and long johns I know you have more than one set. I get cold very easily but I have no idea where my long johns are...probably in a container in my van or one of the other cars.

  3. Well at least you were able to buy your needed groceries and gas.

    Today it was 75F and tomorrow it will be 58F WTH!

    1. While I was able to buy some groceries I was not able to buy gas until today at the Murphy USA station by Walmart.

      I think we are going to get the cold front you are expecting tomorrow on Monday accompanied by lots of rain.
