The Grocery Store is Now Open
In yesterday's story, Racquel mentioned she needed to stop by the store before going home, This got me motivated to do the grocery store. When I initially showed the store in a story with Terrance and Jordan, I knew it would be dismantled right after the story. At the time I did not have a permanent place for it. With my recent reorganization, a space opened up.
For the moment it will stay the crazy colors. The pink and purple will be painted later. I was able to stock some of the shelves, but more products will be added over time. Signage is still not up, but it's coming.
"Pierre, we won't be here long. I just need to grab a few things. We can't eat out every night." (Nicole)
This is Roy. He is a manager at the store, but Jordan is making all her managers run the store by themselves for the first couple of months. She wants them to understand how to work in every department.
At the moment he is manning the Meat and Seafood counter.
Naisha and Kimaya are out shopping.
There's Racquel and Nichelle.
The goal is to have all handmade fruits and vegetables. Here are mushrooms I made early last year.
I made these Idaho potatoes early last year, too.
The meat and seafood counter will also have mostly handmade items.
I made the fish back with the beach series. Remember when Rod went fishing?
Raw chicken and steak are made from polymer clay. I'm sure I can do a better job at the steaks, now, but chances are I will just use these.
These are some of the household supplies.
This is mostly drinks; juices and soda.
This is the freezer/refrigerator.
On the top shelf are the frozen items.
The middle shelf has the dairy products.
The bottom shelf has ice cream, beer and wine. This refrigerator system is top of the line. It knows which products need freezing and which ones don't.
By the way, Diego did come see Halle last night. It's the morning time and he is still there. Hmmm. Halle has fixed him and egg and ham bagel for breakfast.
Halle can throw down in the kitchen. This item is from Rement. I did not make it.
So I am ecstatic about the grocery store! Now if someone would just say they need to go see the Pediatrician, I would get that room done, too.
