Grocery Shopping and A Supper Date

I went grocery shopping this afternoon and stocked my pantry and refrigerator. We went first to the thrift store and dropped off two large trash bags full of Leo’s shoes. I didn’t know he had so many. Some of them were practically new . I hope people who need them can get them for a good price. I would have liked to give them away but I didn’t know anyone who could wear them. After grocery shopping my son invited me to eat supper at Piccadilly’s with him and my daughter in law.She met us there and we had a delicious meal. I had squash casserole with slaw and green beans. Everyone going in and out were wearing masks, of course we removed them at the table. Everyone was seated far apart. So I think we were safe.

Sounds like a good place to eat safely. That was generous of you to share Leo's shoes.

He would have liked for someone to wear them. I didn’t know anyone who could wear them so the thrift store was the next best choice.

Good that you got stocked up with shopping I hope people do get the use of Leo,s shies. A lovely gesture on your part. And nice that you went for a meal. Safe. Look, we can but take precautions. Did the restaurant ask for proof of double jabs or a negative test?

They didn’t ask for anything, just showed us to a table. I wouldn’t have minded if they asked for proof of vaccination.

@RubyHawk At least the possibility of encountering unvaccinated people inside was not on your mind. That's a good thing

@JimBo452020 Actually it was on my mind but everyone wore a mask and we were well separated.

Piccadilly’s sounds like a neat restaurant, we don't have one here. Years ago I had a few pair of shoes I didn't know what to do with so I put them in a bag and left them in an area where I'd seen a homeless guy with a sign. The bag was gone the next day.

You got a lot done, good! Locally, no outbreak from restaurant eating, so don't worry. Good of you to donate. I donate when I can too. Ready for Halloween? Most locally go to malls for Halloween or family's homes for Halloween. Got my Halloween decor out.

@RubyHawk I see. My Halloween decor is only indoor. Our Mayors giving a cautious green light for Halloween. We're 69.9% , herd immunity. Herd immunity is 70%. When herd immunity reached, much to all restrictions lifted, so far. Go trick or treating in family pods, keep wearing masks under costume, try drive through venues like Pearlridge Center Trunk or Treat event in Oahu, Hawaii 2021, Halloween is going to be like. Lots of events locally:

It's nice to be able to get out some more. Do you have a Freecycle group local to you? That's a great way of passing on anything that someone may find useful.

Hopefully people who need the shoes will get them st s low price. I would haven’t liked giving them but I didn’t know anyone who could wear them them. Yes, I enjoyed the outing at Piccadilly. We used to go there occasionally but it had been awhile.
