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.

A Simple THANK YOU Would Suffice

 My grandparents and parents always taught me to send Thank You notes/cards to someone who sent or gave me money or a gift/gifts.  I've done this even as an adult.  I may not send as many notes or cards as I did when I was younger, but I call and/or send an e-mail or e-card.

Take My Purse And Everything In It!

 I'm confused as to why I consistently see women who leave their purses wide open in the child seat section of their shopping carts while they are looking on the grocery shelf for an item.  I see it all the time when I go shopping.  I have also seen a woman who had her purse stolen out of her cart - she was screamming at the top of her lungs.

Let Me Tell You About Our Carnival Cruise from Hell

 Back in the late 90's we booked a cruise on the Carnival mid-sized ship - The Tropicale.  It was an older ship but still going strong.  This would be our second cruise - the first cruise was on a beautiful ship called the Royal Majesty and was not a Carnival ship - a slightly larger ship than the Tropicale.

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.
