Domesticity

Another look at the bag revealed that it did not have the sort of flat bottom that would make it useful for groceries, so I ended up tossing it.

I did major grocery shopping yesterday, which was annoying because I had a coupon for a free 5 pound bag of flour and the check-out clerk kept insisting that a "store coupon" must be for a specific store and, not, therefore usable at Safeway. It took a while to get a manager and apply the coupon.

The weather was less of an event than predicted. But I still fell into winter domesticity mode.
I did a couple of loads of laundry and baked brownies. Today I went to knitting group, though I only worked on untangling some yarn, not any actual knitting. And I came home and baked lemon-spice tea cakes.

I am on the hook to bake bread for a potluck on Thursday. I also intend to bake pumpkin whoopie pies since that was the winner of a quest for what to do with a cream cheese frosting made with ginger liqueur. And I have plans for carrot bread, too (more of a sweet bread than a real bread).
