Let's Go Shopping!
Questions from Sunday Brunch.

1. How often do you go grocery shopping?

DH Bob usually does the grocery shopping. We don't have a set schedule. It happens when we run out of something we don't want to be without.

2. What is the last thing you bought for yourself?
Yesterday I ordered two skeins of Lorna's Laces sock yarn in a colorway called "Flame", variegated shades of red.

The resulting socks are going to be for Kimmy, but the pleasure of knitting them will be mine.

3. What do you like shopping for most often?
Like shopping? I dislike shopping and treat it like a chore that needs to be done to keep life running smoothly. Online shopping is one of the greatest things that ever happened for me.

My favorite thing to shop for is sock yarn.

4. Are you an impulse shopper?
Hardly ever.

In the 80's I went out to buy a lawn mower and came home hours later with a Tercel 4 wheel drive station wagon from the Toyota dealership. It's still a family joke that you can't send Marguerite out to buy a lawnmower.

No one can argue about the wisdom of the purchase, however. That little car ran and ran and ran for over a decade. It was a sad day when we drove it to the junkyard. It was still running, but the body was almost completely rusted out and the doors wouldn't stay shut.

5. What is the last item you purchased?
Friday DH Bob and I bought an HP digital scanner. This is our first scanner and we're both looking forward to using it often.

Watch out family! Now I can scan old pictures and post them on Seasons of Violet and Picturetrail.

Any suggestions on neat things to do with our new scanner?
