Don't you love those rare days when all the cards fall your way? Today was one of those days for me. I had unexpected good luck for all of the day.
Of course, thus far this year, I've had a lot of bad days, so I was past due. But even so, it's sweet and I'll savor the goodness of the day.
I had four good things happen today. The first that was the little stray ferret we found last night was claimed by her owner, our next door neighbor. We had been out looking at the eclipse when she wandered up to us. I had no clue what she was, and once we got her safely into the garage, I googled a picture of both ferrets and weasels. I also did a crash course on ferret care. She was a cute ferret, but she really belonged with her owner. I had put up nine flyers and the owner saw one of them. I guess that fifteen minutes walking around the neighborhood in the heat and humidity paid off. I love a happy ending.
The second good thing was that a booklet to a DVD set that I valued and had lost a few weeks ago was found today. It was wedged beneath my couch. It is now back where it belongs, in the DVD set box.
I got to go out to dinner tonight unexpectedly, to a German restaurant. I love eating out and that place has fantastic food. Coupled with that was good news from a relative with whom I dined.
The last and best piece of good luck was that a necklace, for which I had been searching for WEEKS, was finally found today. I am one of these persons who hate losing anything. It drives me crazy. So finding it was very gratifying. I had done a great deal of work to find it, including finally cleaning out years worth of junk from dressers and nightstands.
So today was a fantastic day. I've been sitting around with a silly grin since I found that necklace. The day is over now, as the clock just struck midnight. It was probably my best day all year.
Here's hoping you have a fantastic day. But a word of advice. If you hide something, be sure and make yourself a note as to where you've hidden it. You'll save yourself a lot of grief. Unless you wish to have an excuse to clean house.
