It’s my birthday!

Happy birthday to me! Having a wonderful day. The clouds even moved away and aren’t blocking the sun anymore. It’s a SUNNY day in Oregon!

Had a wonderful lunch with a friend and her two children – finished off by a chocolate sundae. Yum!

On the way home, the car died. Completely. At one of the busiest intersections in town. Being new in town I had to pick a tow service out of the phone book, but they were great. Showed up in only 10 minutes, and reasonably priced. Of course in such a small town, there are no mechanics open on Saturdays, so the car was towed to my house and I’ll deal with it on Monday. (Live in Springfield, OR and need a tow? I recommend Jack’s Towing (541) 746-9669.)

One of the downfalls of a small farm/homestead is that while you may live pretty well, there isn’t much cash money laying around. Hope the repair doesn’t cost very much! Or maybe they want a temporary gardener or office help. Bartering is awesome. But in preparation for this adventure, we also became fans of Dave Ramsey and took his Financial Peace University course, so we do have an emergency fund. But how awesome would it be if we didn’t have to tap into that even for a car repair???
