I did a lot of running around today. It was my day to pay bills, pay rent, and get groceries. It was honestly a wonderful day. I started out by walking down to pay the rent. I took Little Prince with me and made that our morning walk. It was so nice although I did discover an alarming number of spider nests along the way. After I got back I spent some time on the steps with Little Prince until it was his nap time. After he went for a nap, I walked down to my favorite local store, the one I walk to most mornings. I got some amazing deals on meats! I got enough meats for our family of SIX for 2 weeks as well as bread for Little Prince and a couple of veggies and I only spent $80! After that I got a taxi to the other store to get the rest of my groceries. The thing is . . . Everywhere I went I chatted with someone. It was actually lovely. From the taxi drivers to th store workers, I had such nice chats with each of them. It really reinforces the fact that this is the right place for us. I mean the taxi driver went out of his way to show me a walking path that will save me taxi fares and someone else told me about the best places to get good prices on produce! It was so nice!
