  1. I Heart Trader Joe’s

    October 7, 2009 by myeye

    I HATE to shop — really hate it.  I go to the store before God is awake to avoid women with a dozen kids driving semis down the aisles (without signaling); I pay for a business membership at Sam’s Club so I can make it to the toilet paper mountain without being crushed.  But there is an exception — and that is Trader Joe’s.  We’ve had one location in Albuquerque for a few years, but it was way off my beaten path.  Now, I  have my own Trader Joe’s.  It’s only a couple of miles down the road.

    After work today I rushed home to feed our babies.  I noticed the goat’s milk supply was low.  The first quart of goat’s milk I had purchased at the store at which I buy chicken backs and necks.  It cost $6.39.   But I wanted to get some “handcrafted” frozen burritos, and THE BEST frozen roasted corn which are Trader Joe’s products.  I checked out their goat’s milk when I went in — only $2.99 a quart (now the boyz can eat all they want).  Joe’s flower bouquets are beautiful.  Vicki would still be there taking photos.  They carry local wines — the St. Claire Malvasia is splendid with cheese and pears.  The produce is so fresh that it’s unaware it’s no longer on its branch or vine.  Oh, I so heart Trader Joe’s!

    In other news, daddy Chase is entered at Valencia Valley this weekend.  It is a CWCCA supported show.  The woman who was going to show him for me called yesterday — she has pneumonia.  Gee, she sounded so sick!  So, I was scrambling for someone to show him since I need to be home to feed the babies every five hours.  I learned that Wendy Oelrich will be here for the shows.  She showed him to a Best of Breed and a pull in the Group last year at these shows.  He’s matured so much in this past year (he’ll be two on the 17th) and I hope he does well.  He’ll spend Saturday night with Wendy so I don’t have to run back and forth to Los Lunas.  Cross your fingers that he doesn’t do too many automatic sits — even though they are very straight sits.
