Good Bye 2021, Welcome 2022!

Another year is on its way out

Did we have fun,

I can only doubt?

COVID- 19 is still around,

Will it get tired of us humans?

I only hope we can co-operate

By wearing a mask, get fully

vaccinated and take the booster shot.

If we don’t, the virus will continue

to sit tight.

Let this be our New Year’s resolution!

Happy New Year To You All.

My Journal

Two days ago, I went to Costco with my daughter. I did not make a list. I thought I’m only thinking of buying face cream which is twenty dollars cheaper than Shoppers Drug Mart. I do not need a list.

As I walked through the aisles, I saw things I was tempted to buy. I always believed whatever you see if you want it, you should get it. So you will not regret later.

In order to save twenty dollars on a cream, I ended up spending a lot more on buying things that I wasn’t thinking about.

I came to the conclusion, going to Costco was a mistake, especially during the Christmas holidays.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all my blogger friends. Also those who read my post.

My Journal

This morning Nature welcomed me with its favourite white snow. I kind of disliked the thought of going out to buy groceries on a day like this.

But truth be told my fridge was reminding me if I fail to replenish it. I’ll have to face hunger. Being a human who entertains herself with food, this was a choice I could not be happy with.

I wore my big coat, a cap, and winter boots, I was on my way out when I heard a voice, ‘Do not visit the supermarket without a mask, COVID 19 will have a great day infecting yet another unmasked human.’

I went back, got my mask on, and asked. ‘Yo voice is there anything else I’m forgetting?

The reply was, ‘well buy some popcorn while in the store, or else you’d feel sorry.’

Like the poem I read where the mom asked her son, ‘do not forget to buy this, this and this, all right? The boy was repeating the items every few seconds, and I repeated, ‘popcorn I must buy. Let this be the first food item I pick up.’

While the boy forgot the things he must buy, because his mind got occupied with the players on the soccer field. I suddenly noticed hot chillies on the shelf. I tossed them and turned them, then I put them in the cart. The memory of popcorn took a backseat, because those hot chillies took over.

I went from aisle to aisle. Finally I said, ‘we have enough food to last us for a few days.’

Just a few minutes ago ,my daughter said, “we forgot to buy the popcorn!”
