A Shopping We Will Go…

The time has changed and its dark in the morning.  We had our morning coffee and  pills (getting old means lots of pills!).  Paul surveyed the garden as we plan to make a “Roger’s Run” right after lunch on our way to the market.

Paul did a load of “coordination” regarding the Avalon Ball activities.  We reserved the boat rides over and back, sent out notes to everyone reminding them of the plans, updated the spreadsheet, and made calls to the restaurants regarding Friday and Saturday!  We plan months ahead of time!

Time to get cleaned up and head for Roger’s and the market… At Roger’s we got some peppers, corn, strawberries, cucumbers, white and yellow corn, and herbs!  It was a beautiful day up on the hill overlooking the fog which was on it’s way in at 2:30 PM!

Nice day to walk in the garden

We talked to a lady who was trying to decide whether to buy blueberries or not.  We gave her all our knowledge about them! About an hour later, we met here in the market.

The blueberries were looking good!

Around the corner to the market. Not just ANY market but Bristol Farms!  It’s our annual trek to find St. Patricks Day lunch fixins.  We bought fourteen pounds of corned beef including a square cut, round cut, and wugu beef (whatever that is). Sue found a bag of multi-colored potatoes and carrots plus we got the soda bread and Irish butter!

Some of the fixins

We found the pot of gold!

KerryGold Butter… The best!

After getting home from shopping, we had just enough time to put things away and head for Malarkey’s where we met up with Luisa and the Rodecker’s. At our house, three miles away, it was in the 70’s and clear.  We drove the three miles down Seal Beach Blvd and ran into fog and the temperature dropped into the 50’s!

I was NOT a normal sunset today! The fog was pretty think!

This is what we were expecting…

The normal sunset view

We had a great meet and greet with Luisa, Wally and Ghislaine.  Paul and Luisa shared the fish soup and Luisa really liked it.  We also got a swordfish dinner to share but Luisa ended up taking it home!

We then headed for home to watch a movie and some Cheers before crashing!

About Paul

Just an old retired guy trying to finish out my last years on this planet. I lost my best friend and wife in early 2020. I was blessed again by reconnecting with Dr. Mary Côté, a long-time friend. Mary and I got married July 28th, 2021, and are enjoying life together and plan to spend the rest of our lives being a blessing to our friends and family.
