Random Money Thoughts on a Saturday Evening

My husband cooked the most delicious vodka cream pasta sauce for our lunches last week. This is the third or fourth week in a row where he’s cooked a big batch of hearty, goodness that we can take to work with us.

Last week he made Indian food, which wasn’t nearly as tasty as this week’s pasta dish. He separated the pasta and sauce into separate little glass bowls that fit ever so snugly into our insulated lunch bags.

I ate the pasta twice this week and made a big batch of egg salad for the other two days. I also caved in and bought lunch one day this week, so I could hang out with a coworker. We used to eat together much more frequently and I missed taking a break from the office to chat with her.

I spent over $1000 on a new paint job and a significant power wash on our beach house. A lot of the work required climbing onto very tall ladders and I’m just not a fan of climbing up and down on those things or asking my husband to do it, so I happily paid money to a group of hard working men who think nothing of moving around on those things.

We received a number of quotes before settling on this particular painting company. The color we selected is absolutely gorgeous and the work they did was exceptionally clean. The interior and exterior of our house looks brand new. I forgot how a little paint can brighten up the place and alter the mood of a house and all the people who inhabit it.

On the home front I’m ready for winter to come and can’t wait for some good, old fashioned couch snuggling. I love cooking a warm meal, turning on the TV, lighting a fire, pulling out the covers and and laying on the couch watching a movie with my hubby.

    How fortunate you both are to own a beach front home. It has long been a dream of mine to live somewhere where I can see and smell the ocean.

    hubby,s pasta dish sounds divine, I might have a try at it.
