Today was wonderful. Nothing strange happened. It's funny how we complain that we are bored or wish the day would have some extra excitement to it without realizing how extraordinary an ordinary day can be.
If you've read my last few posts you know that the last few days and weeks have been crazy around here. And I will admit that when I awoke this morning I did wonder "What next?".
After my morning coffee I took off for the laundromat. I had washed the laundry the night before so that I could just take off to go dry them. Now while I do miss the convenience of having a working dryer, I have become quite fond of going to the little run down laundromat just a few blocks from my house.
There is a big, fancy, modern one across town that I could go to but this little one is so much closer and is actually cheaper.
It is relaxing to sit there amidst the hum of the machines. The young woman and her husband that run the place are very sweet and friendly. I met another young woman there today who was very nice and we talked the whole time that I was there.
After the laundromat I went home and picked up the girls to take them to Katie's friends house for the night. We were going to run into Walmart for a couple of little things we needed but when we saw the mile long line of traffic waiting to get to Walmarts parking lot, we decided that I would pick up the items before church in the morning.
Believe me, it was not worth trying to get in and out of there. I knew all of that walking would be too much for me today.
So we passed the store and headed off to Katie's friends house. That's when my phone rang and I got a happy surprise. My friend Jackie from Georgia called! We chatted all of the way to Natasha's house where I dropped off the girls and continued to talk on my way to church. I had a bit of work I needed to get done there today.
Jackie just brightened my day. Thank you my friend, that was a great gift!!
I went into church and started to print the bulletins while trying to play "Winter Wonderland" on the piano!
From there I went home, did a few dishes and have been sitting in my chair being lazy all afternoon and evening!
I will walk the dogs soon and then get ready for bed.
As you can clearly see, they are having a lazy day too. This is Ruby my pug and Roxy my mutt laying next to me in my chair.
Thank you God for this extraordinary, ordinary day !!!
