Today is the first day I've had to myself since I finished my Altered Book. It's amazing that I began it around 2 weeks ago and just last night I completed it. It drove me nuts, was always wet and now, it's finished and it looks and reads amazingly well! I can't wait to show it at the Home Festival at Pineapple Park, Kangaroo Point this Saturday (which I hope is still on as I haven't received an e-mail advising me that it's postponed to another date).
Well, my shopping day turned out to be something which made me feel like a yo-yo! I was in and out of my house like a blue-arsed fly and my poor little budgie didn't know whether I was coming or going. But the first place of call was The Big Apple down the road to pick up my fortnight's fruit and veggies. Now, normally, I get this stuff from Woolworths, but this week, I wanted to see how much it would cost me to get it from this place instead. And you know, the price was $20 cheaper than one of the bigger stores! Brilliant! So, I brought it all home, unpacked and dumped it all in the kitchen and took off again to catch the bus to Triple C at Logan Central to find my next major thing... a bird cage.
Now, as many of you know, I have a sweet little bird who is - most of the time - just a little social butterfly in my house. She got a nice spacious bird cage that she has marked quite well as her own; and I have been considering getting her another and thought it bad idea. Anyway, I also have had problems with possums munching away on my Geraniums in my garden. I only have one Geranium plant, but it has yet to get any leaves on it because of pesky possums sneaking in at night and eating every last one of them before they even become anything looking like a plant. So, I hunted from one charity store to another looking for a bird cage - without success! Then, I asked Woolworths and K-Mart and they didn't have any either. So, I went to Dollars & Sense and came up with this wonderful bird cage to protect my sweet little plant from their paws and taste buds. What I didn't consider was that I had to drag this around Coles with me to finish off my shopping. I had all kinds of people complimenting me on my bird cage, from the ladies at the chemist to the guy at the checkout, then there was a little girl who had arrived at the cab rank with her Mum and she jumped out of the cab and said I had pretty bird cage, then pointed it out to her Mum. How sweet is that? The little girl asked if I was getting a birdy. I said that I already have one, but this cage is for a plant in my garden to keep possums from eating it; and she laughed, thinking it was a joke.
I got home at around 1pm, not a bad day out. Seeing I don't have to be sitting at the kitchen table to work on my artwork or paint or glue anything I'm kinda pleased about being able to hang out on here for a little while until around 3pm or so. I don't feel so stressed out... and I know I won't be crashing so much at night after this.But I do have a house full of food now. And that's great. I love shopping day all because of that fact. It makes it so that I'm free to do all that I want to cook and eat everything because I want to prepare it whenever I want to. Yeah, shopping day is always fun for me as I get out of the house, away from the unit complex and I get to see things I don't normally see, and that's great. What do you love about shopping day? Until my next post, take care, keep safe and warm and remember, I'm always here.
