The Hunter/Gatherer In Me
Thursday, February 20, 2020
Yes. Hunter/Gatherer - a.k.a. shopper! I know shopping is not everyone's cuppa - but I love it. I even enjoy tagging along with DH at boat chandlers or hardware stores. If I were younger and in a city I'd be a personal shopper. Even with the stores as meagerly supplied as they are now - there is still reward in hunting. Today, though, I am going shopping for party food. With somebody else's credit card. The local Rotary puts on a fundraiser concert every February and last year the Woman's Club stepped up to do the refreshments, which included, in addition to women baking in their kitchens, somebody doing a big shopping run. It takes all morning and nobody in the Rotary thinks that is fun. I, otoh, the quintessential hunter/gatherer, thinks is a hoot. I'll pick up another club member who has a card at one of those bulk buying stores and we'll fill our carts with party treats. The trip includes lunch out at Panera - which is also a treat for this country girl.
When this concert is over (Saturday night) I will be done with obligations for a good bit of time. Oh - I'll have dooties - but they will be worker-bee ones - not queen-bee activities. I'm really ready to sink back into the hive for a while. Enough responsibilities will be making their demands known soon, so while I can, I intend to be a happy drone in the studio.
