Pending birthday celebrations necessitated a trip to Wal-Jack this evening. Because I am trying to cut down on any extra-curricular spending, I went with a pretty specific list; it wasn’t written down or anything, but it was set in my head:

  • Kitty litter
  • Yellow cake mix
  • Chocolate frosting
  • Eggs

Before I made it to the Pets section, though, I thought I’d take a gander at the Home & Garden department. Just to see if they had any cool-looking plants. And I found a pot that had daffodils, hyacinths and some tiny purple irises in it.

Oh, and some of these — so I just HAD to have it:

Purple Crocuses

And then Carmelo got in on the act:

Carmelo & Flowers

Mitty, of course, was stuck inside, but trust me: She doesn’t like being outdoors, and she despises other cats. (It was all good.)

For the record, I ended up sticking to my list, except for the plant. Oh, and I did pick up a “confetti” cake and some white icing, for those guests who don’t care for yellow cake with chocolate frosting.
