Grocery Trip Thoughts

Tonight I made another trip to the grocery store. It is nice that they are now open later hours so that I can go when I would normally go.

Winco, Covid 19, essential trip, grocery store, shelter in placeThe checkout clerk said that next week they may go back to being open 24 hours.

While driving to the store I was thinking about how I have had my new car for almost seven months and have only driven a little more than 4,000 miles. It will be interesting to see how much I will drive in the first year, definitely not as much as I had thought. I may also work from home more often in the future as long as I am not teaching a classroom course.

Aunt Jemima pancackes, grocery, gone away productsI am wondering how much longer I will see this brand on the shelves.

Aunt Jemima Syrup, food, grocery, bottlesHow long Aunt Jemima products remain on the shelf will be an indicator of how long the supply chain is. I am sure also that in some areas they will be removed from the shelves much sooner and sent elsewhere.

Pancake brands, Aunt Jemima, ButterworthsI am wondering also if the makers of Mrs. Butterworth’s will be changing the shape of their bottle.

Did you know that Jemima is a biblical name? Jemima is a name that makes me think of overcoming hardships and adversity. Do you know who Jemima was in the Bible?

groceries, trunk, shopping tripI brought home another trunk full of groceries, which is not too hard given the size of my trunk. I decided to shop for another two weeks as this will bring me close to the start of working in the office again. However that may change depending on whether restrictions continue to be lifted.
