These are random musings of my life journey, the people, animals, places, and events which have woven, and continue to weave, a tapestry that is me. We all know there is no real destination, only the ongoing experiences which blend together, creating the trail. Each step gives a glimpse of what is to come, without allowing me to see the end result. It is exciting. I have a home base that is mine, that gives me a place to rest. This is it. This is where my heart is, no matter where I journey...................

You Just Know It's Gonna Be a Good Day When . . .

I knew it is going to be a good day within the first ten minutes of being awake. I woke without serious congestion and feeling rested. I coughed a few time in the night, but not bad enough to disturb sleep.

I rose, went to the bathroom and brushed my teeth and my hair. Then I slipped on a jacket to take the dogs outside. For some reason I grabbed a jacket that I haven't worn in at least a year, probably two. It's one of those that you keep because you like it, but it doesn't go with anything in your current wardrobe. It is soft and warm, and just felt good for today.

As I walked toward the door with eight little happy feet at my heels, I stuck my hand in the pockets and felt an old receipt folded in half, a bad habit of mine. I stick receipts in the most convenient pocket or pouch in my purse and it stays until I get around to cleaning out whatever area. I pulled it out to throw it away (I'm trying to break the bad habit!), and to my delight, discovered that it wasn't a receipt, but a twenty dollar bill!!

No coughing, only a little congestion, and a little mad money, all in the first few minutes of the day!! I can't wait to see what the rest of the day brings!!


  1. I love finding money!! I always tell myself that I am going to put a $20 bill in my winter coat in the spring or my shorts in the fall so I will find something the following season. But I keep forgetting. Oh well..

    Enjoy your day.

  2. Caroline - Me, too! But I'm never tempted to put $$ in a pocket till later. Nope. Once in the hand, it's mine . . . well, till it becomes someone else's when I spend it!

    BTW, my day continues to rock! I will post more later about it because the current goody is not complete. Stay tuned!! YIPPEEEEEEE!

  3. I'm playing catch up on my blog reading today. Sorry to hear that you were sick, but so happy to hear that you are feeling better and richer today :-)

  4. Good to hear you're feeling better Lynilu - I am happy to hear that and I was wondering, are you spending the rest of the day searching all your pockets. Not a bad idea :-)


  5. Eileen - Healthier and richer . . . how could a day possibly be better? Life is good!

    Robert - LOL! I have to admit it! I went back into the closet later on and checked out those other pockets!! You caught me!!

  6. Ooh, I LOVE it when I find Secret Money!! I hope you went and bought something JUST FOR YOU with it!!
    And SO glad to hear that you're feeling much better!


If you have something to say about it, just stick out your thumb, and I'll slow down so you can hop aboard! But hang on, 'cause I'm movin' on down the road!!! No time to waste!!!
