We went to Donegal Town today so we could go to the library. As we usually do, we went to the Animals in Need charity shop and to Aldi before going to the library and then getting the bus back home. I brought a regular tote bag and not my backpack, since I planned to just pick up a pouch of coffee and a couple things of cheese in Aldi, and Bill had his backpack (full of library books) in case we found anything at the charity shop. So much for those plans!
The charity shop has an abundance of books. There were full shelves and overflowing boxes in front of the shelves. I bent down to look at what I could see on the bottom shelf with a box blocking some of the books in the corner from view. I found these.
In Aldi, we ended up getting rather more than we expected. We figured we might as well pick up some jars of nut butter while we were there. Then as I went to grab a pouch of coffee, Bill pointed out the jars of chocolate and caramel flavoured instant coffee that they had. I sometimes get a hankering for flavoured coffee, but that isn't usually a thing here, so with a few exceptions, I just wait for it to pass. Given that these were located with the rest of the coffee and the brand name is the same as the Aldi coffee brand, I have some hope that this will be a regular offering in the store. They also had hazelnut, I think, but I skipped that and got a chocolate and a caramel. After we got what we wanted, we found ourselves in the centre section of the store, where the special buys are. These are things that come and go. At the moment, there are items left from Christmas, including the other two coffees--amaretto almond and Irish cream.
