like a mule.

the contents of my backpack from sunday's grocery trip:

  • 3 pounds potatoes
  • 1 box Spanish rice
  • 1 bottle soda water
  • 1 bunch asparagus
  • 2 pounds carrots
  • 1 dozen eggs
  • ~ 1 pound of coffee
  • 1 jalapeno
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 tub yogurt
  • 3 pounds grapefruit
  • 2 blocks of cheese
  • 1 sweet onion
  • 2.25 pounds collard greens
  • small bags of garlic granules and caraway seeds
  • 1 jar peanut butter
  • 1 jar salsa
  • 3 heads broccoli
this is possibly the heaviest grocery bag i have ever carried on my back. i did not have my panniers so i stuffed it all into the pockets of the backpack i was carrying at the time. i knew i'd have a lot of stuff, but then potatoes and grapefruits were on sale and so i bought them despite the weight. i know it does not look like a lot, and it's not actually that many items, but the weight was substantial for certain.

luckily, alex and jonathan were at my place when i got home, so that warranted a gin drink. but that's a post for another time.
