5 Things I Want And 5 Things I'm Happy About

I want

- A clothes line outside
- A compost bin
- An outdoor dining table
- An overnight date with my husband
- Less spiders in my basement

I'm Happy About

- Not having anywhere to be today
- A library book on hold for me to pick up today The Penny Pincher's Club by Sarah Strohmeyer (thank you to the Non Consumer Advocate FB group)
- The very loud sound of my bread machine making a loaf of what I hope is tasty orange spice bread
- The mini vacation we took this weekend where we got to swim in a hotel pool,  take the kids to George Washing Carver National Monument, The Precious Moments Chapel,  and for my aunt and uncle who put us up in a pop up rv and took us for a boat ride/swim on the lake
- An easy to please hubby who's happy with a $5 take out pizza or a quick spaghetti dinner

What Money Can't Buy

    This is my Mom on the beach in Galveston, Texas taking a break from her cancer treatments. 

     I wonder if she knows how much I miss her.
