Wow – thank you all so much for the sweet comments on my Project Food Blog entry #2! You guys sure know how to make a girl feel good. If it wasn’t for all of you, I wouldn’t even be participating in the second round, so thank you, thank you!
This morning started out as a celebration of the arrival of the fall season to Oklahoma. I woke up with a serious craving for pumpkin – so serious in fact that I made a special trip to the grocery store to see if Libby was back in town yet…
We had a joyous reunion, which involved 1 cup almond milk, 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice, 1/2 tsp molasses and ice (recipe stolen from Angela). I couldn’t stop smiling the entire time I was drinking it. Made me feel all warm inside:)
I spent the morning working on some projects, and then wrapped up just in time for lunch. Lunch was a bit hurried as I was rushing to meet for my 1st tutoring appointment of the afternoon. I threw together an easy peanut butter and banana sandwich on that amazing bread I raved about last week. It’s actually a little stale now, but still good for toasting!
Probably would have been best to get some veggies in at lunch, but sometimes ya just gotta go with it:)
We spent a majority of this evening doing something that is overdue, and not fun in any way.
We put our little Mini Cooper up for sale.
I spent some one-on-one time with her at the car wash, getting her all gussied up and ready for a photo shoot. Then the husband and I took her out and snapped some pics – and she is now officially up on Craigslist.
It’s a sad day at the McCoy house. But not as sad as the day we actually sell her will be. We absolutely love our little car. We got her last year on my very first day of teaching. I needed a reliable car with good gas mileage in which to commute, and considering we’d both been eyeing Minis for quite some time it was the perfect solution.
Anyway, I know that it’s just a car – and I know that material possessions are not the most important thing. In fact, I’ve been thinking lately that I don’t want to feel so attached to an object. My goal is to live my life with my hands open to God, recognizing that nothing I have is really mine…it’s all His. So, I’m really praying that I’ll be able to view this as an opportunity to glorify Him by giving up this thing that I feel is so important, but really only holds worldly value.
Now we just have to work on Olive being able to let go.
So, if you live in Oklahoma and are looking for the cutest little, fuel efficient car around you can check out the listing here, or shoot me an email.
Well, I’m off to make some pumpkin overnight oats for tomorrow morning – I have a feeling Libby and I will be seeing a lot of each other in the coming weeks:) Hope ya’ll had a great Monday!
Do you get attached to the car that you drive? Have you ever had to sell a car that you really loved? Would it be hard for you to sell the one you drive now? Please tell me I’m not crazy….
