Whenever I start getting depressed over the future one of the things I think of is breakfast. The big picture does not matter because (some of) the things I love are inexpensive in the extreme. I am about to have a bowl of oatmeal with fresh strawberries and milk. Even the most extravagant accounting of what I spent upon this 'luxury' would peg the price at no more than $1.50. So even though I expect that I'll always have reason to sing "If I Were a Rich Man" I can always have reason to be happy. Cup of tea and my oatmeal.
I'm also working on a nice salad for lunch. I love that the 'spring mix' is so inexpensive at Costco. But I must hurry because I want to be gone from here by noon.
THIS is important!!!
