All this to say that this evening, I was headed to Honda's house, and the parking was a huge ol' pain, so I ended up parking a million miles away. Okay, that might be an exaggeration. But just a little one.
Anyway, I realized that I was across the street from this natural food market. Now, I have seen this market many times, but I always assumed they just sold vitamins and eye of newt and such. Now, I stared at the market with new eyes and wondered if it might be one of those bulk food goods stores I have heard so much about on the internets.
I was late to Honda's, but whatever, I walked in anyway. And, seriously? It was like I had died and gone to bulk unpackaged food heaven. And not only did they have bulk flour and rice and spices and beans and everything else good, but they also offered bulk laundry soap and dishwashing soap.
How did I completely miss this damn store all this time?! I mean seriously. This store is down the street from Honda's place, and frankly, it's only a 20 minute walk from my place. I was so excited, I wanted to buy up the entire store right there and then. But, I didn't have any bags or containers with me. And well, frankly, I didn't actually need food.
Anyway, now I know. Better late than never, I guess.
P.S. Melinda at Elements In Time has
conned gently persuaded me to give up internet and other technologies for a day. I'm going to try for tomorrow. We'll see how I do.
