Rain is in the forecast this week and the weatherman warned that some might be severe. I woke up at 5:06 a.m. and considered turning on Morning Joe but decided to keep on sleeping. I am always amazed at my good hearing...something I got from my Dad. I am blind as a bat but at least I can hear. 😒
Last night I fell asleep in the living room recliner watching YouTube videos so was closer to the kitchen when I started to hear a dripping sound. How could that be when it wasn't raining? It was coming from the vent hood where we have a leak. I had placed an old metal pot to catch the drip and it paid off...I was able to hear it and by now was wide awake. Then the skies opened up and we had a heck of a gully washer.
This afternoon I needed to run some errands in town. My first stop was going to be HEB followed by the Post Office. However, as you always hear me complain...the HEB parking lot was full...you have to get there early in the morning. We need another store for the people who live in the north part of town so those of us in South Del Rio can have this store to ourselves...😉
Needed to pick up some items at Walmart and to my surprise noticed that egg prices had gone down and were affordable again. 18 large Cage Free Brown eggs $3.94.
I bought the 18 eggs carton of extra large white eggs for $2.04. I had not bought any since October 2022.
I am glad I purchased my cans of Great Value corn and various green beans for .50 cents last month as they have gone up to .64 cents.
I laugh at this brand of tomato sauce that is made in México and am surprised that Velveeta Cheese has not sued them. Though spelled Val Vita the names sound very much the same. This item was also high as Joe V's Smart Shop...owned by HEB...sells these for 5/$1.00 in Houston, Texas. I know that I am "obsessed with this store" but it was my favorite when I lived in Space City, USA. I check their ad weekly for price comparison though there is no comparison with the prices at Joe V's.
One of the items I wanted to purchase at HEB was potato salad so I had to settle for Walmart's. I forgot that they make theirs with onions and though I like them...they should not go in potato salad IMHO.
Gasoline is also on the rise...$2.959 for Unleaded and $3.129 a gallon for Diesel.
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
