A Few Things...

Today, a few things are bothering me.

And, a few have made me smile.

My husband's job comes with $25.00 a week on the company gas card.  That makes me smile.  Today, Lance went to use said $25.00 and was able to purchase SIX gallons of gas with this twenty-five bucks.  Six!  When I started driving, gas was 99¢ a gallon.  $25.00 would've filled up my van!!  Now, we get six gallons.  But, at least we didn't have to pay for it lol.
Be comforted in knowing that Starbucks is still more expensive, at five bucks for 20 ounces, instead of the $4.11 per gallon that hubster paid for gas.

Speaking of coffee...we used to get the large container of Folgers at the grocery store for $9.99.  And, even as recent as a few weeks ago, it was $10.99.  Yesterday, we paid fourteen bucks for the same coffee. 
I'm very sad.  We go through a lot of coffee around my house. :)
Might be it's finally time to give in to my hatred of Costco.
I doubt it though :)

Today, a sweet email from an old friend made me smile.  I love the Internet.
And, also because of other sweet old friends and the Internet, I'm able to share with you something else which made me smile.

A friend of mine in Vancouver, Washington shared this rainbow on Facebook.  As you can see, I've stolen it lol.  The rainbow, and my stealing of it, both make me smile.

And, it's a little reminder that, even though we have to pay too much for our everyday stuff, the best things in life are free.

Love and snuggles from me to you, on this chilly California evening. ♥
