smell the roses.

it's monday and that means it's time for another smell the roses link up! this week's task is to show appreciation for your job. yeah...about that. i still don't have a job here in little cheyenne. and since i was busy with birthday festivities last monday and didn't have time to link up, i'm going to do a little substituting and fulfill last week's smell the roses task: make a bucket list. is that cheating? i hope not. i'd like to think of it as being resourceful. {don't be mad jesssica!}
