Anything over 80 degrees is warm for me here in Florida. But it depends on the humidity too. That’s why I start my walk before 8 am…before the humidity starts to climb.
I’d rather walk in 50 degree temperatures. In our humid summer months, I’ll be out the door by 7:15 , 7:30. If my entire family didn’t live here I would be out of this state ASAP. But I have to say, the winters are great and when the humidity is lower like it will be tomorrow, then it’s a great place to live and walk and run (so many runners lately… probably haven’t exercised in 10 years)

You know, after this food goes though all the people who have handled it before you bag it…truckers, delivery people, clerks who put it on the shelves, customers who pick it up and put it down and the cashier who scans it and pushes it along to the bagger. one more pair of hands won’t make a difference. Better to let them bag it and then wipe everything down when you get home.
Personally I’d rather touch it as little as possible until I get home and clean it.

Publix supermarkets in FL are installing plexiglass shields around the cashiers.
Not in my local stores yet.
We have baggers who have no protection. They will still help you out to your car but I rarely use them
I use to say sure I need help because I knew the young ones liked to get out of the store when they could. But not on a rainy day. Now not at all
Joann Fabric stores are open but have curbside pickup if you choose. They are deemed an essential business.

Try 7-11 , or Circle K or any gas station that has an inside convenience store. Speedway and WaWa have large convenience stores.

Oh bummer…it’s our only chance of an excursion….yay , the grocery store!
My area is not as dense as some but I keep my eye on the news and so far so good. I could walk to my Publix though. Whew that’s a hike home in this weather now.

Are there any farm stands near you? There are some here that have refrigerators with dairy and eggs. Even some of the drugstores…..Target….Walmart …..can’t rely on Publix I guess.

What a beautiful ending to the day. My uncle was a piper and my daughter had a lone piper going Into and out of the church
on her wedding day. Later we had my son in law’s father’s entire pipe band marching down the street from the reception to Flanagans Pub. The same band played at his wake. The sound is so moving. It’s great to have a sense of community where you live….sadly lacking in many of these isolated suburban neighborhoods in the states.

Hi,
I went to our local Publix here in Florida this Monday and everything but paper products was on the shelves. It was about 10 am. It looked like they just restocked. Plenty of meat, chicken and fish. Very unlike the last time I went. I think it would be difficult to limit fresh meat and chicken and fish because how would they know the size of your family. They maybe should limit milk and eggs and butter though because you can always make a meal out of that. Some cleaning products were limited and there were signs on all the shelves and produce department with a polite reminder to take only what you need and think of others. Nope, it’s just like the hurricane mentality here….deplete all the batteries and flashlights and stock your freezer so you can be ready when the power goes out and you have no generator but you do have pounds of spoiled food.

Yes people are still hoarding because they think the apocalypse is coming. I know people are cleaning more but empty shelves of tissues and TP.?
And Publix is saying there will be no refunds to anyone because of the overbuying. Exchanges are okay. Good for them.

So when we should be staying home ,we have to go out to the store more often to see if they have restocked and then you have no choice but to stock up yourself.

Sigh…FL Mary
