Yesterday we went out as a family, first time for a long time. The plan was to get a new dress for Sofia and lunch out. It was 2 hrs outing that felt sort of normal weekend life pre-COVID. Except I only realised about the mask after I put some lipsticks, totally pointless.
We went out to Shake Shack burger place for lunch. We first sit on a table ready for dine in, but then as we waited for our order to come, I realised that the guy who’s eating in our diagonal direction was probably 1.5 meters from us, I didn’t feel very safe to take out the mask, so we decided to take out instead.
When we were walking home, it was 12:30pm so it was hot and sunny. We all felt uncomfortable, and for few secs it reminded me of those uncomfortable moments that are part of traveling. Those annoyances get forgotten very quickly by the positive experiences of traveling. But they are part of the travel experience nonetheless.
evening reading time. I am finishing Educated, OMG, I only started to engage at page 200 (out of 335) but I’m so glad that I kept reading. I saved few last pages to finish today to savour it fully awake
Lizzy reading her favorite comic book, for 5 min she was focused, and then she went away to play.
I did a throughout review of our August groceries spending. The final results:
Total: 800 (USD)
- Fresh vegetables: 28%
- Fresh fruits: 21%
- Chicken/Fish/Egg: 11%
- Pantry (flour, cooking ingredients, etc): 14%
- Milk (including non-dairy): 8%
- Frozen (veg, dumplings): 6%
- Snacks: 10%
- Rest: tofu, bread
This is a good representation of our monthly groceries, for two adults, two kids, mainly plant based whole food. I am very glad to see that we spent half in fresh vegetables and fruits. Snacks consumption could be reduced a bit more but I’m not super worried.
Where do we shop? local Costco, vegetable/fruit order, conventional groceries stores, and asian stores.
