Grocery Shopping

I am still hanging out in Houston.  BOL!
Mom loves grocery shopping now that she has a car.  She goes through the ads on Tuesdays and plans her route.  She loves Randalls which is a grocery store here.  They always have something good to get you in the door like eggs for $.29 or chicken breasts for $.99 a pound.  She buys what is on sale and then she moves on.  We also have Kroger and H-E-B.  Kroger is good, but she prefers Randalls.  She has turned into an Aldi's nut.  She likes their produce but also buys canned goods and other items there.  She doesn't like their cheese and has found that meat is usually better priced elsewhere.  Aldi's has turned into quite a popular place to shop these days because they have organic items and also they carry low-calorie items.  There are tons of YouTube videos of people showing what they have bought.  BOL! The folks discovered Sprouts about a month ago.  Sprouts is kind of like a farmers market, but they also sell frozen items as well as meat.  Mom thought it would be high priced, but they have good sales.  Today, she bought fresh pork chops and chicken breasts at $1.99 a pound.  Finally, she goes to Wal-mart to finish off her shopping.  

Aldi and Sprouts are pretty opposite in looks.  Our Aldi's is being remodeled and expanded!  They will be closed for a month to complete the remodel.  Thank goodness we will be gone for two weeks of that time.  BOL! 

Last night, we had a really pretty rainbow here.

Mom gave her potted flowers to a neighbor today.  Mom had planned on taking them with us but then decided that would be a real pain.  Basically, she figured that if the flowers had bugs on them, we would have bugs in the RV. She didn't want to toss them in the trash or ask anyone to take care of them, so she offered them to a neighbor. The neighbor offered to take care of them, but Mom told her if we move to a condo, we can't have them.  The condo doesn't allow plants on the balcony because they could blow off. The lady was happy to take them. She said she has been thinking of getting a plant.  Her husband is here for chemotherapy.  We think they brightened up their place.  

They have been full-timing in this little Airstream for a few months now.

Mom heard back from the condo in Galveston yesterday.  They do allow big dogs after all.  We still haven't booked a place to rent though.  We are seeing if the place that is for sale will allow us to rent it before buying. They are currently renting it to someone else.  If that doesn't work out, we have a few more options.

If you are wondering, Mom still loves her Instant Pot.  She uses it several times a week.  She is planning on making lasagna rolls tomorrow and reheating them on our first night of travel. She hasn't tried reheating food in it yet, but she has been told that it does a great job.  

Tomorrow is the last day for the Dog Days of Summer auction.  Dog Days of Summer Auction

I will be posting from the road.  WooHoo!
