We have settled into a routine for our preparation days. We work on cleaning our apartment in the morning, and then try to do something in the afternoon. This afternoon, I attempted to find a bird nesting area south of us, the Venice Rookery. I had seen some signs for it. Unfortunately, we weren't able to find it. It turns out it is further south than I thought. So our lack of success for today will give us something to do later.
So instead of going to see birds, we went to Costco instead. Whenever we drive south, I like to stop for gas at Costco because it is less expensive. And since we are in the area, we always look inside Costco to see what bargains they might have that we can't live without. They always seem to have something.
