New addition

The income I make from writing is my mad-money. It's what I used to buy tools and toys. I've had my eye on a garden bench all summer, but it was a little more than I wanted to pay. But today when I went in the hardware store to look a replacement door for the back of the house, I noticed they had the bench on sale.

After I had decided on what door we wanted, I realized that I hadn't measured it. There were two sizes of the same door available. Rather than choose the wrong door, I decided to put off the purchase until I got my ducks in a row.

On the way out, I looked at the bench one more time. After sitting down on it I decided to do the deal, so I whipped out my mad-money and bought that puppy.

A few moments later I was heading home with the bench in the back.

I couldn't decide where it would live, so I placed it by the front walk to show Jilda when she got home from work.

When she arrived, I was sitting on the bench sipping ice water. She smiled as she came up the walk. I think it will be a good addition to our yard.

  2. I agree, and I hope it will be used. I think it will, I don't think you used your mad money for just a play purty!
    Good on you!

  11. The color looks like it might clash with your purple door. It would be nice to see the two together.
