Do you ever have one of those days that is totally unplanned, totally uneventful and turns into total perfection? Today has been one of those days for me.
To start, I didn’t wake up until almost 9AM, something I rarely do and three hours later than I usually rise.
After a leisurely morning around the house, I headed out around noon. I had waited until noon, as that is when the recycling center opens and I wanted to drop off my trash.
I arrived to drop my trash and no one was in line, again, something rare especially on a Saturday or Sunday.
I got out of the car and was greeted by the sweet lady who always has a smile on her face and kind word for everyone who stops by. As I finished dumping my trash, she smiled and said, as she always does, “have a blessed day angel.” I didn’t realize it at the time, but it was moving that way.
I ran by the store and wrote my monthly column for Georgia Mountain Laurel Magazine. This month I had been struggling with my column. I knew what I wanted to write about, but the words weren’t flowing in my mind yet, it was a struggle.
With tomorrow’s deadline on the horizon, I sat down at my laptop and 20 minutes later almost 1,000 words had flowed from my fingers onto the screen. I did some edits, but somehow the words that I had been wanting to say came. (I hope you all like them, the new GML will be out in early November.)
After submitting my column, I cleaned the inside of my very dirty car and gave it a quick wash.
I then came home and decided to rake and blow the leaves off my drive and then put out some Halloween decorations I had forgotten about.
Now, the day is coming to an end. As I write this I am sitting on my screen deck, enjoying a beautiful Fall day, my girl Lita at my feet. An awesome 70’s Disco playlist on in the background that Alexa chose.
See what I mean….unplanned, uneventful, perfection.
