New stuff

Three things to be happy about:
(1) car naps
(2) counting the days til deadline
(3) a Zen moment

We had two new Walmarts open up in the District yesterday, one of them is near Union Station (which makes it handy to the Metro) and the other one is just a couple miles away from me!

The hours for both are 6:00 am til midnight, so when I woke up this morning at 6:30 I thought to myself, "hmmm, the Walmart is open, why don't I go up there??"

There were 6 parking attendants on duty in the underground parking garage, even at that hour!

An escalator leads to the store on the main level....

The produce section is right at the front as you enter, everything looking bright, cheerful and new!  My stomach started rumbling at the smell of rotisserie chickens...

Although it's not a super humongous store, it has a bit of everything, including a full-scale grocery department.  

I didn't take a lot of pictures, but you might ask what did I need so urgently at 6:30 am???
bagel thins!

two camisoles!

Christmas socks!

I do shop at Walmart, and it's handy to have one so close to where I live.  If you look at the first photo again you'll notice it's built really close to an apartment house, those folks just need to take a one-block walk around the corner to get there!  

At the time I went, it was smack in rush hour traffic and I wasn't even on the main street... the store sits on Georgia Avenue near Missouri Avenue - an intersection that's always always busy at that hour anyway... what can I say except "uh-oh!"

Have a great Thursday, sew forth and sew on til later!


  1. Of course you needed bagels, camisoles and Christmas socks...who wouldn't? And I love "car naps" as long as I'm not the one who's driving AND napping at the same time. Never a good combo.

  2. D.C.traffic is horrible even when it isn't rush hour. I can think one you can get to bby using back streets or walking would be a boon.

  3. Early morning is the best time to go to WalMart - unless there is only one checkout clerk.
