Celebrate the Small Things · Friday Four Fill-in Fun · just thoughts

Groceries and other stuff…

Hilary at Feeling Beachie and her co-host Jennifer Farwell
have come up with four statements with blanks to fill in.


After thinking about it…

  1. March is my personal New Year month.
  2. Watching puppies and kittens play reminds me of being a child.
  3. Would you grocery shop if you didn’t have to?
  4. One word to describe life is complex.

So here it is Friday and time to think about Celebrating the Small Things.

I don’t like grocery shopping, but as I was shopping today I realized I have never been really hungry. Oh, I have been hungry but there has never been a time that I did not have food available to me. There have been times that it was a stretch to pay for groceries, but there has always been enough money. And when the week lasted longer than the food someone would invite me to supper or bring me leftovers from their family meals.  Thinking about this made the shopping if not fun at least less of a chore.

And there you have it.

  1. Hi Patricia. I don’t mind the grocery store. Half of the time the hard part is setting ‘prior menus’ to know what I need. What a concept – right? I do think of those less fortunate. With prices so much higher – how are single parents handling this? That’s my thought. Have a lovely weekend!

    1. Menus? People go to the store with an idea of what they are going to cook? Maybe I should try this. Groceries prices have gotten higher. It must be very difficult to feed a family. .So sorry I missed your comment. I try to be more prompt with replies. Thanks for visiting.

  2. I love your attitude about grocery shopping! It is amazing that when we approach things with gratitude they become so much less of a burden. I don’t like crowded Stovers or long lines at the cash register, but I do enjoy finding goodbyes or new ideas of things to make for meals. Like you, I have never truly starved, even if it has been a struggle at times, And I am so very aware that is not true for everyone. I’m grateful, and I help out others where I can.

    I so agree about watching puppies and kittens play, it’s a guaranteed smile generator every time!

    1. I still need to work on my attitude…I still don’t like shopping for food.and necessities.
      There is something about puppies and kittens playing…and the laughter of small children that gives one a sense of warmth and well-being.

  3. I love the expression on that cat’s face! And I like your thoughts on grocery shopping. When looked at that way, I appreciate it more. 🙂 Have a GREAT weekend!

  4. I don’t like the monthly necessary food shop I have to do at Walmart… we live pretty rural and have to drive 30 minutes to shop. BUT I love the little food shop visits to Schnucks, HyVee, and Dierbergs. Makes me all warm inside! Love to browse the deli, cheese, and bakery sections… 😀

    1. It would be a super bummer if I had to go a ways to get groceries. Little shops are interesting but still I am not much into them either. If I was rich I would have a cook.

      1. You can come over to my house. I love cooking. I’m not saying I’m good at it, I just love chopping and dicing and whacking the cutting board, to get rid of my frustrations. 😀 😀

  5. So funny that you are talking about grocery shopping. I was able to go today after being sick for quite awhile and couldn’t help but think what a blessing it was to shop again! Haha! Let’s hope I maintain that attitude!
