No Job, Plenty Fun: The Budget

Day 11: in which the sun continues to build a case for springtime, and the pennies stay put.

Try as I might, I could not spend money today. A return trip to REI gave me fun but nothing tempting. I started a list of groceries, but really only needed eggs and honey. I won’t last long without honey, but tomorrow morning’s farmers’ market will have to be soon enough. Stanley and DeGame O’Health stole the car to go play handball, trapping me at home with a tall hot Earl Grey tea. A long walk with the dog, more food cooked on the grill, and the day is now done, happily and without any cost.

Which makes me curious, can you put a dollar value on the joy of not spending money?

today – $0.00

$0.00 + $735.15 = $735.15
