Shopping therapy

It was so nice to wake up and feel like I could go out and do something! So I did. And it's the first time I've driven myself anywhere in two weeks. First stop was to the appliance store to look at red washers and dryers. I think I'm going to give up on the LGs and get something different. I've now had three different places tell me that it is too hard to get parts and support for those. So now I am considering Bosch, GE, Maytag and Whirlpool. Whirlpool and GE both have the steam feature. And GE has that pedestal that you can fill with detergent, fabric softener, and bleach and you are set for six months. But the GE red is an orangy red and not nearly as pretty as the others. The GE also has a connection between the washer and dryer so you don't have to set the dryer. It gets the load info from the washer. All you have to do is move the clothes and push start. Decisions, decisions. I'm going to wait until we get back from Fall Break to actually purchase. Have to wait almost that long for the gas dryer to show up anyway. But it was fun looking at new appliances.

Next was going to Fresh Market. I don't remember the exact last time I was able to go grocery shopping. And I like grocery shopping! I got the ingredients to make Ina's Cream of Wild Mushroom Soup that is the second September recipe for Barefoot Bloggers. Also got some things for easy eating this weekend at the farm. I think I'll do appys for Mike and me to have on the pavillion tomorrow night.

Becky, I'm so happy you were able to get out and enjoy the day. My goodness you certainly deserved it after the transfusion fiasco. ((hugs))

Your reminder of Ina's Cream of Wild Mushroom Soup has me craving it now. I'm sure it will find the way to my table in the coming week or so. Thank you for the inspiration!

Thanks Mary. Thursday was not my most fun day, but I had so much fun looking at appliances Friday!

I finished Ina's mushroom soup this morning and OMG, it is TDF. We're supposed to blog about it this coming Thursday, so stay tuned for pics and review. :-)
