Good News abounds!
I am again wearing shoes as of today. Thank Gods.
I just finished a novel - Pride and Prejudice Fan Fiction - 'Darcy's Story' - borrowed (not bought) from my sister.
Now, I am about to tuck into the Audio Book version of 'Stumbling on Happiness' by Daniel Gilbert - borrowed (not bought) from the Toronto Public Library. I ordered it a mere 14 months ago when I flipped through a few pages of the book version a client of mine had at camp in July 2009. Ah, but worth the wait, now that it comes to me during my year of not spending! The author is a funny Harvard College Professor of Psychology.
And, for the kicker, I mentioned the want of a mini-fridge for my work (so I can stanch the cash-blood-letting flow on coffees and fizzy waters at my new job) to a coworker who said, 'Oh, I have a bar fridge.' Folks, ask and you shall receive. The universe is providing my friends.
Hey! Only 3 months and 10 days to go for my one year of not buying anything new to be complete.
Also, my wife and I have unanimously decided to postpone going to England as it is in direct competition with the cottage building goal. It definitely feels like the right thing to do this year.
