Yesterday went by in a blur. We made it through the whole winter without getting sick, but yesterday, March 1st, both EJ and I were sick with swimmy, achy heads, coughs, sneezes, and aches. We felt awful, so we didn’t do much. Hopefully JJ will not get sick. I am more concerned about him because Chemo lowered his resistance to illness.

Today EJ and I work feeling much better. I am still coughing and blowing my nose, but my head isn’t swimmy. We decided to the farm market-ish store and get some bird seed because we were almost out. The birds eat like pigs. There were several types of bird seed to choose from. We bought a 15 lb bag of fruit and nuts and a 40 lb bag of assorted seed. We couldn’t see what sorts of seeds were in the bags and I was a little disappointed that the 40 lb bad had more corn and nuts in it and fewer smaller seeds. I hope our regular birds like it. EJ says birds of one type or another will be drawn to it. I think next time I will get a bag that has more of the smaller seeds in it.

After we bought the seeds, we went to the grocery store. I had planned to get only a few items, but we ended up filling the cart. EJ and I have always grocery shopped together and we have a lot of fun doing it. It always seems more like a date than a chore. We found ourselves in the garden aisle, and we bought seeds and garden gloves even though there is still a lot of snow on the ground. In fact, we got 4-5 more inches of new snow overnight. But in March we begin to dream of spring.

I also got another cilantro plant. The cats chewed on the other one I bought and I am not sure it is going to live. I also bought a parsley plant so we can have fresh parsley for Passover. I am putting these plants in the kitchen window so maybe the cats will leave them alone.

As we were shopping, I got a text from JJ asking us to stop and get Chinese food. Since I had a gift certificate from a dear friend, I called to order meals from the Chinese restaurant and we pick them up on the way home.

When we got home, EJ and I carried the groceries into the house. I put the foods that required refrigeration away and then we stopped and ate our Chinese food. Afterwards I finished putting all the groceries away, then swept and mopped the floors.

It was a fun day.
