I prepared dinner for tomorrow with ingredients from our garden. Freshly dug potatoes, onions, and carrots were chopped and put in the crockpot with chicken thighs and garlic. I will put the timer on the crockpot tomorrow and we will have a delicious dinner tomorrow night. Our tomatoes are starting and I'm so thankful. Tomatoes and cucumbers are my favorite foods. I splash a little garlic rice wine vinegar in both and it makes for a good side dish or snack.
I met with my financial advisor and started buying an energy mutual fund. I think energy stocks are undervalued right now and I love getting a good deal. I wasn't sure if I wanted more exposure to individual energy stocks since I already own BP, Conoco, and Halliburton. I also bought a couple thousand of Coach. I don't buy their bags because I'm too frugal but I think I got a good deal on the stock. I wish I had more cash right now because I love buying stocks on sale. I am keeping my $10,000 emergency fund in cash but I'm so tempted to buy something else.
Another side note that's important to me: I encourage you to call your Senators who voted not to defund Planned Parenthood. This is not about women's rights. Women should always have the right to say no. It's not okay to use our tax dollars for an organization that is selling fetus body parts.
If you think that you're going to leave me a comment in my blog about changing my mind. Forget it. Never going to happen.
Edited to add: I like that this is a passionate issue. It should be. Obviously I feel strongly about it and I think we should contact our elected officials to remind them how we want them to vote.
