Filling in week 22…

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 22

  1. My favorite store is not the grocery store but I don’t know what is my favorite or if I have a favorite.


      2. An unanswered prayer I am thankful for is…all my prayers are answered but I               don’t always like the answer. Like when the answer is no or not now.                     


  1. At Halloween, I shut the door and turn off the light. I don’t think Halloween is a good thing.


  1. I believe in the supernatural because there are too many things that cannot be explained with intellect and logic.

Frankly, happy little surprises…

Today is Friday, November 19, 2010


Don’t you just love those unexpected happy moments that pop up every once in a while?  I know I do.  I am not talking about big momentous super splendid type surprises but the little ones that lurk around corners–or in this case on a web site–that jump out and say,”Hah, here I am!”

I had one of those moments the other day.  I was doing some Christmas shopping online and found something I love that I have not seen in the (real) store for some time.  I thought it was discontinued as this particular retailer does discontinue things every season.  Well, while I was browsing the online store I found the item–and on sale!  Let me tell you I dropped my Christmas shopping and put my favorite in my cart  ASAP.

Some of you may think it strange to get so excited about a small thing like bubble bath and body lotion (can you guess where I was shopping?) but when you really really like a fragrance it sort becomes your signature, part of your identity.  The box came today–super quick shipping.  I think the UPS man thought I was going to faint when I saw who the delivery was from.  You may think I am going a bit bonkers over this but truly this is big in my  world–I have been without my identifying  signature fragrance for too long.

I am going to take a nice long bubble bath and put on my lotion and my most comfy jammies.  Then I am going to get my book and a glass of my favorite wine and my cat and curl up in bed.  A perfect night.

Oh, I did remember to do the gift shopping.

Frankly, the friends for whom I was shopping  unknowingly gave me a gift.  If I hadn’t gone to that site to get their gifts I never would have had my happy surprise.  Friends are wonderful!
