It was a pretty uneventful day, by anyone’s standards. Outdoor Guy, Wyokiddo and I took in a few garage sales in the county, spending a grand total of $6 for a bike helmet (Wyokiddo), boot dryer (Outdoor Guy) and U.S. history book and scrapbook paper (me).
Wyokiddo and I spent almost two hours in our small inflatable pool we set up on our patio.
Dinner featured t-bones from a steer raised by my father-in-law, a salad made with produce from our garden and homemade ranch dressing made with herbs also from our garden. We topped it off with root-beer floats for the whole family, followed by another round in the pool.
My life is not glamorous. I shop at garage sales, drive a used SUV and forget to put on deodorant, let alone makeup some days. But I have a husband that respects me and provides for us, a daughter who looks up to me, a family that loves me, money in the bank, food on my plate and a roof over my head.
As the Zach Brown Band would say, I’ve got everything I need and nothing that I don’t.
I am rich beyond words. Maybe we could all do with a little more homegrown in our lives. Just a thought.
