This and That

I live in Greenfield with my husband and cat. I work full time. Frugality and simplicity have been a part of my life long before they became popular and it has made life a lot less stressful. I love volunteering, home improvement/decorating, crafting and gardening.

Donald Driver

 I really appreciate this man.  He's is actually an athlete that kids can look up to and learn from.  He isn't afraid to thank God first before anyone else for the blessings in his life.  In today's world it isn't often that athletes who make a lot of money thank God for what they have been blessed with.  Donald has a wonderful work ethic, does a lot for charities and those less fortunate than he, loves his family, can dance, has one heck of a smile AND appreciates what an organization like the Green Bay Packers has done for him.

Winter Happiness

 I've lived in Wisconsin all of my life.  I've visited other states and have friends and family who have moved to other states only to return to Wisconsin (eventually).  I love our four seasons.  However, of the four seasons, I'm the least fond of winter.  I love the first snowfall and taking brisk walks when it isn't too cold or slippery.  I hate driving on slick roads (because of other people who don't know how to drive on them) and the bitter cold that takes one's breath away.  I do know that there are people who really enjoy what snow offers - skiing, snowboarding, skating, sledding, etc.  I enjoy sledding and skating, too, when time permits.

Politics and Liars -

 Our holidays were somewhat shattered due to workplace politics and liars - people and situations that we all encounter in our lives.  I hate both and pride myself on not getting involved in politics, whenever possible and staying clear of lying.  Bigots, liars, cheaters, backstabbers, phoney balonies, etc. appear to so often get ahead in life faster than the people who are none of these and, unfortunately, there is not much we can do about it except sit back and wait and see what happens.

WHY?

I was attending my company Chistmas party on Friday.  When the news of another mass shooting spread, the mood changed and very few of us were in a festive mood.

Christmas Shopping

 Wow - I've heard that cyber Monday is off to a fantastic start.  Hopefully, this is because people are finding good deals, have the money to pay for these deals, and are purchasing useful items that will make friends and family happy for years to come. ...with a few goodies for themselves, as well.
