Going to the supermarket


It's not that bad very often, but last weekend it happened and I'm not proud of it. I do have explanations, excuses ... the weather, work, stress, brain blockage, lack of motivation and probably pure laziness at times. But explanations and excuses won't feed us and living in a country where supermarkets are closed on Sundays standing in front of an empty fridge was a little frustrating.
How could it come that far?

The only thing I could do was order take-out food which is usually too salty for my taste or distract myself with a little browsing tour.
Can you imagine how I felt when I found the following items reminding me of groceries even more?

Let's start with a nice refreshing drink. Pink lemonade earrings by Katalina Jewelry. Much better than tap water!


How about some fruit next? Pixe's Treasure Chest has these beautiful mouth-watering peach earrings for you! I had a withered apple ...


I think honey would go very well with the peaches, don't you? I happened to stumble upon these copper stick earrings with cute honey-colored glass beads in the shop of Northern Girl Jewelry. Mmmh, honey.


One of the most important things I need is milk. Now I wonder why this cuff by BeadsBeadingBeaded reminded me of milk? Think it could have been the cow?


Great, after this tour I was even more hungry than before and I wondered what would be cooking at my Mom's place ......... ;-)

I love that kind of shopping! Very cute selections - but too hard to decide if I want the lemonade or milk...

Great selections. I really like your idea for the theme. Luckily here grocery stores are open 24/7. Years ago when the kids still lived at home and the grocery store wasn't so convenient Fred used to tell me I could stock a bomb shelter for 6 months I kept the pantry so full.
