A Perfect Day
Don't you love a perfect day?! We aren't always aware of them for some reason, but yesterday was just such a day. It began, as it usually does, with coffee and quiet time. As John was reading morning devotions, I interrupted him to point out the Eastern spruce, which is just beyond our patio doors. It was sitting there twinkling in the morning sun. I've never noticed it before. For over an hour, we sat there and watched the tiny drops of water sparkle like twinklelights on a Christmas tree. As per usual, this is the best that I could do with the camera. Look close! Do you see them? There's one especially good one to the left.
After breakfast and after I'd visited a number of you, we decided to take my sister's Christmas decorations to her at her workplace. After leaving them off, a trip to Goodwill seemed in order. So many of you have such good luck there...well, at least Mary always does! Anyway, that's what you're seeing next — all my Goodwill treasures — a complete roll of wrapping paper, a candy dish, two boxes of ornaments, a book, and a little sign that says "and to all a goodnight." And all for less than ten dollars! I received three dollars in change.
I remember this well because I forked it over again late in the afternoon when we stopped at Tim Horton's for coffee and a blueberry fritter — make that two as we didn't share.
John took me out for lunch and I had something Mexican that was very good and didn't taste at all like turkey...yay! He had a salad. Honestly, I hate it when he's good on his diet. It just makes me look bad.
Then we shopped for all of his family and finished. Finished! Well, except for two aprons that I've got to get busy sewing.
Bought more fabric, bought more perfume, and avoided buying any magazines. I have all the inspiration I need right here in Blogland!
Edited to Add: About an hour after I had this post "in the can" using Post Options, I realized that something exciting was going on. I was receiving lots and lots of visitors! Most were arriving from The Inspired Room. Why, I wondered. Seems that Melissa has honored A Haven for Vee as her blog of the week. I am so blessed and so humbled because beautiful blogs abound here in Blogland. Talk about a perfect day, yesterday was it!
Soooo...welcome to all who may be visiting this blog for the first time. I do hope that you will comment so that I may visit you, too.
