walking through the forest we found a stone,
carried it home,
and upon arrival,
discovered a price tag on the bottom

the tyranny of my belongings

last week to partner, "I'm feeling tyrannised by our belongings."

a week later, partner, "umm, where did the sofa go?"

witchery, potions and magic

Lovely Frugal Scholar posted a link to a coupon for
"two anti-aging potions".
I was really tickled by this phrase.
Witchery. Hope. Love. Magic.
Sounds like something purchased for the wife of a philandering spouse,
"apply this by the light of the full moon, slaughter a squirrel,
and your spouse will return to your arms."
While in airports I often slather my face in Creme de la Mer (free samples, who buys this stuff?) and warn my husband, so youthful will I be by flight end,
he won't even recognise me.
Potions, how often does one get to use that word?

My definition of happiness is contentment.
Beautiful clothes, a sumptuous meal,
travel, decor; I count all that sort
of thing as pleasure. 
Happiness can be achieved without these pleasures, but
marketing would have us believe otherwise.
