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.
Our condo association recently put up a Free Library for unit owners. It was built and painted by two of our unit owners and we had a nice little dedication. It is dedicated to one of our unit owners who passed away this year and loved to read. The Free Library was filled right away and a person can take a book and leave a book. It is for our complex only.
Integrity according to Wikipedia "is a concept of consistency of actions, values, methods, measures, principles, expectations and outcomes. In ethics, integrity is regarded as the honesty and truthfulness or accuracy of one's actions. Integrity can be regarded as the opposite of hypocrisy, in that integrity regards internal consistency as a virtue, and suggests that parties holding apparently conflicting values should account for the discrepancy or alter their beliefs."
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.
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.
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.
