Lowe's, the gym!

I spent from 1955-1967 living in western North Carolina. We lived in Winston-Salem but spent weekends and many Summer days in Blowing Rock. Between the two is a little town that had a great home town hardware store. And we stopped there on the way or on the way home depending on what we needed. It was called Lowes. The Seattle Lowes is not too far from here but farther than Home Depot so I rarely go to Lowes. BUT today I did.

I decided that it would be my 20 minute walk. So I parked at the far end of the parking lot and marched on it. It was GREAT! I went to the left and followed the wall all the way back and then did aisle by aisle by aisle. Through doors and toilets and stuff I didn't care about, I went at a good clip. The aisles are wide, the temperature was perfect, it wasn't crowded.

I hit hardware about halfway through and ran into two Lowes guys who wanted to help so I asked about Sugru and we walked a fair bit to find it. While we were on the hunt, the nice man told me that this Lowes is the largest one in the chain. Cool. By the time I got my Sugru, I was only halfway done with the store but I'd done 20 minutes. So I figured, I'd save the right hand side of the store for another day when the sun was too bright (like today) or it was too hot.

I stopped in a QFC on the way home looking for eggs and chopped up green onions. I keep a baggie of chopped up green onions in the freezer. They are great in my scrambled eggs or on other stuff. QFC didn't have any already chopped BUT they did have something called 'stuffing vegetables' - chopped up onions, celery, parsley, and some other stuff. So I grabbed that and made myself a giant batch of stuffing. Froze most in dinner sized portions and saved some for tonight's dinner. Score!

And cleaned the kitchen and finally wore out Zoey. A good day all around.

Oh! And I remembered to get gas!!
