We took a crockpot cookbook to mark recipes in the car. Didn't find one worth cooking, so that book will be dispensed elsewhere to free up the shelf space. This is a good technique if you have lots of cookbooks.
My parents took us to Danville Gardens and bought us a ton of plants. That's about 7 flats of pots, a few extra gallon pots that wouldn't fit in the boxes, and a tricolor beech sapling in an even bigger pot. I also got a blue ceramic pot with a horse and rider marked on it in glaze-resist that looks rather like the Chalk Horse. :D
Customarily I shop by looking at everything first, then deciding. This is not optimum in a hot greenhouse. Last year I only filled about half the cart before I conked out, which made Mom and Dad kind of sad. So this year I tried a new strategy: I grabbed some of everything that looked halfway appealing. I certainly crammed the cart full this time! By the time I got to the back building with the multipacks, I managed to fit in a few, but I had neither cart space nor energy to continue -- didn't finish that building or get anywhere near outside, just said "Enough is plenty." But the total bill was higher than I was really comfortable with, even though I wasn't paying. Next year I may try a different approach. I am really looking forward to planting all this stuff, though.
For supper, we went to a Mexican restaurant. Then we decided to visit El Oasis for dessert on the way home. We got the blackberry and cheese ice cream, which was quite excellent. They have a new spicy chocolate too.
Last, we picked up a few groceries on the ride home, but the main shopping will be another time.
I'm tired, but it's been a good day. :D
