I was born in the wrong era. Don’t get me wrong; I love my DVR because I am not about to miss an episode of Women Behind Bars or Snapped! I just long for a time when things were simpler, there was less chaos, people were nicer, neighbors helped neighbors, that kind of thing. Plus, I like to dabble in all aspects of–and I hesitate to say this–homemaking. Now Better Half is probably rolling his eyes around in his giant head, but I really do like being a wife, mom, and homemaker. There, I said it. I like being a homemaker, and I’m proud of it!
So here’s where the nice and good karma part comes in. A kindhearted, generous friend last weekend gave me the above book: The Prairie Girl’s Guide to Life, written by Jennifer Worick. It is so me. If you too long for the pioneer, prairie way of living this little gem of a book is for you. There are all kinds of fun, crafty items, such as soap-making, braiding rugs, all thrown in with homespun humor. So, get ready, because I feel a craft coming on! Good karma to my dear friend for gifting me with such a cool book (along with yummy leftovers from lunch)!
Now, how I’m going to score karma points today. I’m going into “town,” buy an iced tea through a drive-in window at a fast-food restaurant, and pay for the customer behind me. I tried this last Saturday evening, and I was very, very disappointed when no one ever pulled up behind me in the drive-through…. Kinda anti-climatic, don’t you think?
Niceness and good karma to all!
