Shopping! My town just opened a Wegman's grocery store. It's amazing. The grocery part is kind of ordinary...but then you get to the deli, produce, cafe...wow. I've never seen so many different kinds of cheese in my life. There is even a mushroom bar- with a box of truffles locked up. A steal at $289 a pound! I've never seen a grocery item that actually has to be locked up (except for cigarettes). I also found salsify (a root vegetable similar to parsnips but tastier)- no one grows it in the U.S., and it's a pain in the ass to grow it yourself. It has to be imported from Belgium. I can't believe a store in my area has it! It was expensive, but I bought some...The cafe has an amazing variety of treats. The bakery is good, too. It's so nice to have a really good grocery store nearby.
The weather has been hot and sunny, so I've felt somewhat cheerful this week. There was a terrible thunderstorm last night, though- lots of hail. It gave me a bad headache. :(
