We went to Oklahoma City on Friday to have my husbands car checked by the dealer. We also went to our son's home to get the fresh shrimp he brought back from their vacation to the Texas coast.
I got so many comments from you all about my fridge cleaning.
Another photo of the potted zinnias - just because they are pretty and happy.
We ended up just a short distance from a rent house in Midwest City that we lived in from 1983-1986. We drove by and took a photo- the house was not new when we lived there and it is not in a really great neighborhood but it looks almost just like it did 30 years ago and seems to be well maintained.
Our son's wife grew up in this same neighborhood, in a house just 5 blocks from this house. We did not know her or her family then but we all think it is neat we did live close together even though we did not know it at the time.
We also just happened to drive by US Foods. It is a rather new store, kind of like a Sams but without the membership fee. USFoods is a wholesale food company that mainly delivers food to businesses and institutions. Back when I was a cook at a fraternity house, USFoods was my favorite distributor.
Now, USFoods has opened just a few retail stores.
We browsed every aisle and had fun looking at all the kitchen and restaurant equipment. Since it was a spur of the moment visit, I didn't have a plan to buy anything but we did find a few things
The gloves were an especially good deal, about $4 for 100 and are handy when when we do messy things like painting.
I really like balsamic vinegar and have a hard time finding it in our town,
I expect my grandchildren will be happy to snack on the goldfish.
We will go back, when we need to stock up. They put an ad paper in the Oklahoman newspaper every so often so I will watch for sales on things we use.
I forgot to mention about another important part - cleaning the fridge coils and air flow spots.
The little fridge has coils on the back that get dusty and the big fridge gets lots of dust buildup in the bottom. If you need to clean yours, just look it over for dust.
Using the compressor blows the dust all over but it is important to get it out. Once our fridge broke because the dust in the bottom clogged up the motor.
Today-I mowed and edged the front and back yards. We've had plenty of rain so everything is green and growing.
The potted garden is mostly growing
This afternoon, I worked on prettying up a couple of pairs of $1 flip flops with ideas from Pinterest.
That will be my next post - I've rambled on here long enough with way too many topics.
