Last Saturday I made a special trip to the grocery store to purchase a can of evaporated goat milk. I needed it to make my nutroll.
Of course, I remembered to pick up a few other items while I was there.
The next day, I gathered the necessary ingredients for my baking adventure.
I was all set, except for the goat milk. Typically, when I’m going to use an ingredient the day I come home with it or the next, I leave it on the counter.
No goat milk. I searched all the places where it could be and nothing.
I searched again.
Was I losing my mind? (No need to answer that.) How could I lose a can of goat milk in a span of 24 hours?
The item was on my receipt, and yet I didn’t remember taking it out of a bag once I was home.
After minutes of searching and feeling very frustrated, I headed over to the store’s service desk. Lo and behold, it was an item that had been left in a bag with the cashier and turned in.
The crazy thing was that I even asked the cashier if I had all my bags. Mistakes happen.
I got my goat milk, again, and went home to my baking.
I share this story for several reasons.
First, it’s that time of year when all kinds of goofy things happen. Too much going on, we get distracted, we forget. I think it comes with the season. If you’ve experienced some weird stuff, welcome to my world.
Second, if you ever do leave something at the store, take your receipt and go to the service desk. Although the items had been put away, there was a list in their system of all the items that had been returned to the shelves.
Third, I was grateful to know that I didn’t lose a can of goat milk in my house and that I haven’t quite lost my mind.
I wish you and yours a beautiful Christmas.
