That weekend cold front was a brisk reminder to start preparing for winter ahead. There are cashmere sweaters and thigh-high boots to bring out from hiding in the closet. Kitchens are heating up with soups, meat loaves and homemade breads. Lemonade and icy drinks are being replaced by hot chocolates and Irish coffee. Noses are detecting the scents of pinion wood burning in chimineas and fire pits.
And speaking of noses, it’s definitely time to get the infamous flu shot.
To make the “ouch” a little less painful, Tom Thumb’s Connie Yates is offering a 10% off coupon on groceries up to $200, if you get your shot in one of its pharmacies. Why not get “shot up” at Tom Thumb’s and use your coupon for holiday feasting. Or, better yet, load up on canned food goods and donate them to your favorite food bank. The coupon is good through March 31!
And, no. Connie didn’t pay for this flu reminder.
