The temperatures have been spring-like yesterday Wednesday, January 5th we missed breaking a record high by one degree. It was a very comfortable 82 degrees.
I had to go pick up a prescription at HEB and couldn't help but notice the signs at the pharmacy announcing they were out of Covid tests like in most of the nation.
I had run out of milk, individual salads, bread, and was down to my last two boxes of cereal from the stash I bought back in April 2021 so made a grocery run. I usually buy HEB store brands that I find to be just as good as the national brands.
If your store has its own national brand, how do HEB's prices stack up?
Fortunately for me, my Turkey Jumbo Franks have not gone up in price they remain at $1.28 a package.
The same goes for my salads, bread, milk, and avocados.
Just a short story about avocado prices...my neighbor in Houston was complaining that avocados were no longer 5 for $1.00 at Joe V's (HEB's discount store) they were now 4 for $1.00...are you kidding me, woman? That is still a super bargain price! I would be more than glad to pay that price any day...in Del Rio, they continue to sell for .78 cents each.
They had a variety of slices of cake but thankfully no carrot or red velvet cake, so I was not tempted.
Here is my buggy at the checkout counter.
Gasoline was going for $2.739 a gallon for unleaded gasoline.
This evening temperature is supposed to dip below the freezing mark. It is currently 43 degrees. This is the time of year when we experience a seesaw in temperatures.
Good night. May you have Terlingua Dreams and bundle up!
