A Happy Friday

It’s just been such a happy day. I want to write about it.

It all began with breakfast out with my mom.  I’d lost a serious bet to her, so I had to pay up.  My treat at IHOP.  Bacon and eggs always get me going in the right direction!

Next, a couple of errands… she needed to buy a little gift, and I needed to purchase a box of floor tile and a shower part for a job.  Accomplishing those tasks freed us up for a trip to Texico for the grand opening of “Rebecca’s”.   This was a wonderful treat. Not only is her store one of the projects we’ve been working on this year, she’s also married to my cousin… so her beautiful opening on this beautiful day had me smiling all around!

Back to Portales and to my desk to stay after the end-of-the-month-spreadsheet-and-check-writing routine… when I was happily interrupted with a phone call.  A friend calling to tell me that she’d just seen lots of wonderful old jewelry at a garage sale.  I needed a trip to the bank and a trip to the UPS place to ship off a faulty baptistry valve, so I was out the door and on my way.

I found a lovely little treasure of old brooches and ear clips, and I’m happily supplied with pieces for my winter-time hobby I love so… making the jewel boxes.

Back home to get my geraniums into their new pots and ready to face freezing cold nights inside and sunny days out on the porch.

Off on my walk, which included a stop into one of the small projects we have going on – where I was able to help load saws and nail-guns into the trailer, and tell Gary all about my marvelous treasure hunt.

Home again, home again, jiggety-jog.  And I’ve just had a piece of Caramel Apple Upside Down Cake… a gift to me last night from a sweet young chef who delivered it to my barn, warm out of the oven.  (G’s on a diet, so I got my warm piece last night, and his piece tonight!)

I find this kind of day to be the music of life.  It’s a glorious autumn day.  It has been filled with one simple pleasure after the next.  I feel so incredibly blessed to be living this life.

    What a fun day. But, it had to be fun starting it out with your mom (one of my favorite people).

    It was such a beautiful day yesterday, too…my favorite kind of fall day. It is so nice when good things fall into place like they did for you, and even better when you take the time to share them with us. 🙂
