Grocery Bliss

I did a little grocery shopping today.

NO! Don’t go! I’m not going to whine about it like I usually do. Promise!

Okay. Now where was I?

Oh, yes. I did a little grocery shopping today. And by that I mean I ordered my groceries online last night and today I pulled up to the designated spot and two young men graciously loaded my car for me. I didn’t even have to get out, but I did anyway. Mostly to ask if they would come to my house and put the groceries away for me. They said no.

There was no frustration, no angst, no drama. It was a thing of beauty. Now I don’t mind grocery shopping so much.

If only they would come to the house and put everything away for me.

And clean the kitchen.

That would be awesome.

I also stopped on my way to the grocery store to pick up my first CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) box today. I bought a half share so each Thursday I’ll stop at a friend’s house and pick up the fresh, locally grown vegetables, fruit and half a dozen eggs. I won’t know from one week to the next what will be in the box, but that’s cool. I’m just excited to have all kinds of healthy goodness on a regular basis.

Last night I mentioned that I would be picking up our first box today and I can’t remember if it was me or Katie, or maybe the both of us, who said that we hoped it would have rhubarb in it.

Guess what! It had rhubarb AND strawberries!

Strawberries and Rhubarb

Guess who’s making a rhubarb strawberry crisp tonight.

And guess who doesn’t mind grocery shopping anymore.

    When can I come over to get a dish of the rhubarb-strawberry crisp? Or will you deliver it to my house with some ice cream?

      I think we should probably see if it’s even edible first. 🙂
