Today I will start quilting
There wasn't much accomplished yesterday at all. It was errand day. Mom and I had our monthly lunch with my cousin and did some shopping. Then we took a detour to check out a salvage grocery store that my friend has been raving about. I had never heard of a salvage grocery store but it's a cool concept. They get damaged goods and ungraded produce (the ugly but still good stuff) and sell it heavily discounted. It was an interesting field trip but it's too far of a drive for me to make to just to see what's there. My diet is so restricted that going to a store like that might only yield a couple of purchases. The only thing I might have bought yesterday was carrots. But it was cool to see the place very busy on a Thursday afternoon. Do you have one of these type stores near you?
I'll just stick with Wegmans and Kroger for my "special" foods. I used to have to go to Whole Foods (which I hate) so was thrilled when Wegmans moved to town. I'm pretty sure that the Richmond area has more grocery stores per capita than other place in the US. There seems to be a big grocery store on every block. (After typing that last sentence I asked Google and, as of 2015, I was right. We rank 3rd in the nation. We've added Publix, Aldi, Lidl and Wegmans since then.)
Anyway.......Today I will start quilting the "Paula" quilts. I want to have both quilted by tomorrow so that I can get them ready for hand stitching the binding during Sunday football. But I'll quilt this baby quilt that Mom made first. The printed fabric is kites so I think I will quilt loops and kites freemotion. I got it loaded last night so I should have it done in a couple of hours.

No, we do not have a salvage grocery store in Roanoke. Have never heard of it, but it's a great concept. We don't have a Wegmans here, either. I was in one for the first time last fall when I had to pick up my car in N. VA after a car plowed into my car. What a wonderful store! I like Trader Joe's a lot, but we don't have one of those, either.

Alas no salvage grocery stores locally, although there is one about an hour away that charges regular prices, so not worth the effort of going. I've heard a lot of people talk about how great Aldi is, but none of the those here in Canada.

I now only have 2 groceries to choose from, an IGA or Walmart, but even before moving to the country, there were only 4, IGA, Walmart, Kroger and Aldi.... I am always in the big town... so I shop whenever I am "in town". I MISS Wegmans (Leesburg VA).
