I didn't take any pictures because I am shy.
But. I made a purchase. My first purchase at the new store in Lloyd, Florida, and what did I get?
That's right. Bacon.
Okay. It's not GOURMET bacon.
But it wasn't made in China either. So it'll do.
Jessie and some of her girl friends might come over for a sleepover tonight after a wedding in Monticello and I was thinking they might need some bacon with breakfast in the morning. So...there you go. I'm ready.
Papa Jay has everything you can imagine. Medicines for tummy and head-aches, beautiful deli meats all ready to slice, a few fresh fruits and vegetables, lots of canned goods. Bread, milk, eggs, BACON. Soaps, detergents, paper goods, socks, undershirts, hats. Some tools. Beer. And lots of it. I hear that's the most popular item so far which does not really surprise me. He told me, "If you want something you don't see, just let me know. I'll get it in."
Ran into my neighbors who were walking up there as I was walking back. They agree with me that this could be a very sweet thing for Lloyd. The church next door has activities going on today too so things in Lloyd are busy on this fine spring day.
Did not see the snake in the hen house this morning but as you can imagine, I examined things closely before I stuck my hand anywhere to gather eggs. I should clean the place out but my burn is looking pretty funky and I'm not sure I want to get chicken poop bacteria all up in that right now. Same with garden soil although I may cave and just wrap bandaids all over it and put gloves on.
In other news I have entered a contest. I'm thinking I might win because my heart is pure.
You can enter too, if you want to but seriously, I'm probably going to be selected.
And then all of my dreams will have come true. Mostly.
Well, that's about all the excitement my heart can handle today although I am definitely thinking about doing something to decrease the baby spider population on my porch. It's getting slightly out of hand and that porch is right off my bedroom. I saw a picture somewhere on the internet about a spider invasion and damn if it didn't look sort of like what I have going on which gave me pause. I mean- should I be freaked out?
One entirely hatched batch and one hatching batch. There are more. See how unimpressive it looks? Well, check this out. (WARNING: DO NOT CLICK IF YOU HAVE ARACHNOPHOBIA! I'M SERIOUS. JUST DON'T!)
That's just one small bit of the little cloud of darkness you saw above, the shot taken with my real camera with a lens that magnifies and shit.
Sort of fascinating. Sort of horrifying.
Not unlike much of life.
