ARE YOU A MATERIAL GIRL/BOY?
A friend on Facebook (Misty, one of those former bloggers that we all miss) is trying to figure out what to tell her family she wants for her upcoming birthday. I understand her dilemma. I am not and never have been a "material girl" and was once criticized for not craving diamonds or gold or other items of intrinsic value.
It seems my wishes are always for things like peace, joy and happiness. Now I am attempting honestly to put together a wish list that I could give someone who wanted to give me something.
Audio books on CD
Sketch pads and/or markers
Vintage books (poetry primarily)
House of Stuart Scotch
7 new strong goat collars
Cute hats (for me not the goats).
Auction, garage sale or yard sale booty.
Basically clever items for very little money. The less spent on me the happier I am. Some of my best gifts have come from the dollar store.
Well that list could go on but I'm surprised I came up with these "wants" so quickly. Maybe I am a material girl. What would be on your list? Oops, did I just waste what could have been a good Question Of The Week?
