Little Things Mean a Lot
For all the years I've been in Mexico, a large area rug has been on my list of things that I wanted in the living room. Voila! One has now been purchased for a minimal price and each time I look at it or walk on it, I'm thrilled all over again. No, it's not particularly little but it was little in price.
Then while in Texas, with the Houston List of things to purchase in hand, I purchased at Tuesday Morning a set of king size sheets for me and queen size sheets for the guest house. They were on special for $24.99!
Half the price of sheets that I priced at Costco in Celaya.
Last night, after Josefina had made my bed earlier in the day with the new sheets, I luxuriated in the silky texture and feel of the sheets. Absolutely lovely and soft to the skin. Sleep last night was extra pleasurable. They are now my most favorite sheets. All the others I have are flannel. With the down filled comforter on last night, I was perfectly comfortable sleeping on non-flannel sheets for the first time in a long time.
Then on that Houston List was a squishy hose. You know, those new type of hoses that fit in a little bitty space but expand when water flows through them. My big hose is so darn heavy because the yard is so big that lugging that thing around is no fun. Enter the squishy hose with a new nozzle. Woo hoo, what fun. I
can hardly wait for Sebastian and Matilda to come over. They will enjoy playing with it while watering the plants...........and themselves, of course. In the meantime, I can go all over the yard now with minimal struggle.
There were several other things on the Houston List. One new set of luxury towels and new washcloths which I found on sale for nearly nothing. One-fifth as expensive as the ones at Costco in Mexico! Surprise.
To round out the list, I purchased a new pair of Merrell sandals for myself. They were pricey, but when I put them on my feet I sighed at how comfortable and well fitting they fit my feet. Add to that that they are blue and a light turquoise, my two favorite colors. I'll be wearing them for years.
I'm feeling like the Queen of the Hill these days with all these things that I returned home with to add to my life.
All little things, but, they sure mean a lot!
