I’ve had the worst luck with orders through Amazon lately. Six orders have been lost in the last so many weeks. I’m sure it is the Universe telling me to stop ordering. Of course, these orders were before we began the big No Spend year. However, I’m still waiting on a USB port and a much needed vacuum that was last seen in Kentucky a week ago.
Now, here is the funny thing…I ordered Possum Living, about bare bones living, through the library zip program (they order books from Amazon and have them sent directly to you) and it arrived within two days. I think the message is clear; living light is supported in the cosmic world but consumerism is not.
I’m enjoying the book but can’t give a full review yet.
We have been busy all weekend painting like crazy people. We used up almost all the paint we had left over from the other house. Some paint required mixing, like yellow, we had all sorts of yellow. Light yellow, canary yellow, white paint, mixed yellow…I mixed it to a butter yellow for kitchen and then I mixed it all in the big bucket to do the living room. I had a little blue for one wall in the bathroom, a little butternut squash for the front door. There is more paint for another weekend but here is what we completed this weekend.
As you can see, Molly is exhausted from all the changes.
I’m so happy with the colors. I’m always amazed at what color can do for a room, transforming it completely at times. I’m grateful we kept all the paint from our old house. We can make the house warm and lovely and not spend a thing.
On Memorial Day we had friends over. The first play date for all of us. I cooked up a pot of white rice, made extra salad, cut up some cantaloupe on sale and, after hours in the forest playing and walking, we sat on the porch and had a simple, but delicious feast.
All free and beautiful. Tons of exercise and fresh air, vitamin D, and organic, vegetarian food.
Best day ever, until we ended it with a broken arm and the evening in the Emergency room. We were so blessed to have our friends there to take Sam and lead us to the ER as we didn’t know were it was yet. Everyone acted quickly and we were in the ER with in minutes. The other blessing was a slow day at the ER and so much kindness and support there as well. Little man is now healing and enjoying lots of free Roku TV movies.😄
