Saturday Wins!


It's been awhile since I did one of these live posts. I have hooked up some new functionality so I can do them outside of Tumblr. I had quite a few errands to run today, so I didn't expect today to be as fun as it was but occasionally life surprises you.

 Started the day at my favorite deli in downtown Lincoln. They got my order wrong, I wanted a 1/2 sandwich with corned beef AND salami, but what I got was an all salami sandwich. This was fine.. just not what I ordered. The beef barley soup was amazing as always.

 After going to a few bookstores and such I went to get some dog food for Toshiro and saw these to little fellows up for adoption. Not sale, adoption, in case you thought I misspoke. All the cats they have in the store come from a local shelter. I hope they get adopted together.

Next up was looking at X-mas decorations at a hardware store. Some pretty impressive stuff has come out this year.. didn't manage pictures of what I am talking about because of the crowd, but there are these LED sparkling icicles (actual clear acrylic shaped icicles) that are pretty amazing.

Lights aside, the stores have finished their conversion from Halloween to Thanksgiving and X-mas. I spotted these treats which were a favorite of mine when I was growing up. They come in a snowman shape too, but the trees are peppermint flavored which is really nice.

I also spotted this thing in the butter section. This is the first year I have seen something like this. Would you buy a butter turkey for your Thanksgiving feast? I am debating getting it just for the novelty of it.

Lastly, I picked up some persimmons. Most of the Japanese bloggers and twitter folk have been posting persimmon pictures so I thought I would pick some up. I have never tried them so I thought I might try one tonight. Apparently they are very, very good for you.. which is good since around this time last year I got epically ill and I am trying to avoid that.
