Picking fresh vegetables out of your garden...or getting them at a farmer's market.
(Our wonderful neighbors just gave us a sackful of peas and onions...stirfry for supper tonight!)
Smoothies made with fresh fruit.
(Especially Michigan strawberries and Western Slope peaches.)
Sleeping in! (Pure luxury)
Homemade pancakes and waffles...to make it extra nice, pure maple syrup on top.
Beef stew or chili, slowly simmering in the crockpot all day.
(And knowing all that's needed for supper is crackers and cheese.)
Watching a Five-Buck-Club movie at the nearest Kerasote theater.
($5 for first-run movies, once you've got the free club card! Go here for yours.)
Swimming at a friend's pool. Or spending the afternoon at one of the town pools.
A vase of flowers on the dining room table, courtesy of your garden. (Or nearby meadow.)
A Really Good Old Movie, enjoyed with homemade popcorn (the dogs begging for snacks), snuggled next to Husband.
A Really Good Book, like The Glass Castle (an amazing frugal memoir), plus a hammock...and a few hours of uninterrupted time. (Best enjoyed after you do something strenuous, like mow the lawn.)
