The heat wave continues. One more day before it breaks -- or so the weatherman says. It is so hot that I don't want to do anything. Even when it cools off in the evening I still have no energy.
I told you that Joe and I went to Shop Rite after Bible Study on Wednesday. Here is what we got.
|We needed cat food. That's an every week occurrence. Or at least every two weeks.|
|Country White bread, Joe's favorite. We were out of mustard and bananas. I got some cinnamon raisin English muffins. And the Valentine and snowman cupcake papers were only 50 cents apiece in the clearance section.|
|Joe wanted orange juice and we were completely out of eggs and margarine.|
|I got a large package of chicken thighs and a package of brown sugar and honey sausage. Because it is so hot we wanted something cold. I got my favorite Klondike bars and Joe got the wiser choice of Outshine all fruit mango bars.|
|And we needed fries, lunchmeat and cheese.|
|We needed milk. Nathan's hot dogs were on sale, so I got a package.|
|The strawberries looked good, so I got a box. I got a couple of bags of salad. We have been eating a lot of salad.|
|A pork roast, pork chops and flounder.|
|The mushrooms were two boxes for $4. A sale for sure. I also got carrots, Jazz apples and green beans.|
The past two days I have seen a butterfly outside my front door. I have not seen a butterfly in years. I am never quick enough to get a picture of it. It flits by, lands on the artificial flowers outside of my door, sees they are not real, and moves on. I want to attract butterflies so I decided to get a real plant to put out front. I have tried to have real plants in the past and they always die. Too much light? Not enough light? Too hot with all the concrete and brick? Not enough water? Too much water? I have never figured it out. Joe and I have been talking about it and when we saw hydrangea bushes in Shop Rite on Wednesday we considered them. I said it wouldn't work because they get so big. But finally we decided to at least try it. So today I got one. I think the prettiest one in the store.
I was able to plant it when I got home before the rain. It rained just a few minutes and didn't even cool things down. I think it looks good out front and I hope the butterflies think so too.
It is actually two plants together which is why there are two colors. The white one is starting to turn purple. I think it's so unique. I may end up getting another one since I have another large pot.
I don't have any photo challenge pictures for you today. I am going to have to work on that.
And now it is getting late so I am going to get ready for bed. It has been a long day. Hope you all have a peaceful and restful night.
