I ran errands after working in town, including picking up a few things at Big Lots during their 20% off sale. Ran by the discount grocery, and picked up a bag of Iams cat food and a tube of Jason's natural toothpaste, both for less than 1/2 price, along with a handful of other things. Dry canned jasmine rice. Washed plastic bags to reuse. Composted fruit & vegi trimmings, tea bags and coffee grounds. Tore up TP tubes and added to the compost. Used my Lowe's credit card for a purchase, saving me 5%. Fertilized the hellebores with nettle tea. I helped Joseph plant two pear trees. These are fire blight resistant, which is a major problem here. The varieties are Potomac and Blake's Pride. We hope these will do better than our original pear trees. The season's first Downton Abbey disc arrived via Netflix, and I thoroughly enjoyed the episodes. I'm really going to miss that show.
