I went shopping yesterday. I do one major and one minor shopping every two weeks. This week was a major one. I didn't buy any meat except a rotissere chicken, all fruits and vegies and a couple of canned soups and it was $150. I mean to say, food is so expensive these days!!! I wish I had an area to build my own garden, but I don't, and pretty sure the wild animals that live around here would eat them before I can. I definitely am going to try to do some patio cherry tomatoes and small peppers though. And maybe some mint for my tea. Need to get started on that now!
I guess my foray through the forest gathering mushrooms taught me a lesson: buy some bug spray for my clothes. This morning I have several chigger bites. They take several days to show up, always love to crawl up your pant legs (shoes and socks or not!) or down your shirt I found out today :( to the very warmest places on your body, and I have those bites in very personal and unusual spots, besides just the backs of my knees where they usually get me. Not taking that journey again into the woods until I get some spray for my clothes too!
