Things I LOVE – Home Grocery Delivery

 spud.jpg

I have a confession…I like to buy my groceries in my pajamas while sipping a hot cup of tea generally well after the little one has gone to bed. I do my grocery shopping online and have it delivered right to my door. Well most of it…less in the summer months when the farmer’s market is in full swing.

I’m able to buy fresh organic produce as well as my favourite items from local bakeries and local dairy items. This saves me a lot of time and gas running around the city and a side benefit I’ve noticed is it really reduces impulse purchases as I can see the total and adjust it before I pay. I can also login to my account and add/remove from my order until the cut off. I love that each item I order is clearly marked with how far it has travelled allowing me to easily select local items whenever possible.

I also love that I don’t have to worry about doing a big grocery shop with my little one. We still go to the local grocery store every once in a while but it’s usually for a few items and takes very little time. I was talking with a group of mamma friends about the stress that is grocery shopping with their little ones in tow and I couldn’t remember the last time I’d done it….and I definitely don’t miss it!

A New Year

Is it already half way through Janury? Really? 15 days into the new year? I feel like we’ve been on holiday forever. The Holidays themselves were busy – filled with travel, family, celebrations and lots of yummy food. We played in the snow, decorated, made gifts for family and friends, warmed up by the fire, drank egg nog latte, stayed up too late, watched too much TV, snowshoed in the mountains, went skating, read many books and started more knitting projects.

2008 is shaping up to be an interesting year. Focusing on taking time for me to recharge and find balance in my life. So important when you are living life with a little one and thinking about adding to the family. A big trip is in the works…I will talk more about this when it’s solidified but I am busy filling in passport forms, reading travel books, planning and hopefully very soon booking flights.

Highlights from the past month:

New handmade play kitchen. An amazing gift from Grandma & Grandpa.
