Our overnight in Kansas City had such a relaxing beginning. The pool at the Marriott was cool and refreshing, as was our in-room A/C (I was worried it couldn't keep up with the 103-degree heat.) We dined leisurely at one of my favorite KC bistros, got a great night's sleep, then took in Monet's Water Lillies on exhibit at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art this morning. So beautiful and serene.
Note: Not my photo. Cameras weren't allowed.
Unfortunately, the serenity didn't stick, due to our scheduled stop at Kansas City's new Trader Joe's. Can you say CLUSTER CHUCK!??!!
Yes, I know it was a Saturday. And, only the second Saturday since their opening, at that. But, we were rightthere and the Two Buck Chuck beckoned.
I'd been to TJ's before in Boston when my daughter was in school there, but the TJ's in her 'hood didn't have wine, and I couldn't buy groceries since we were in a hotel. So, you see, it had to be done.
Half an hour in line and a 45-minute drive home later, we are stocked with some of TJ's most popular products including one Two Buck Chuck (it's really 3 bucks) of each variety.
Who knows? Maybe we can get some of that serenity back tonight!
