Grace's Great Day

Today was the day - off to replace the computer parts that this graceful gal drowned in tea...

As I drank my coffee I asked the universe to cut me a break. Please, make it my Christmas Wish!!!! As I headed off into the snow and ice I kept myself centered to just get into town, get the parts and go home. As I reached the outskirts of town the wonderful Colorado drivers where up to their usual talents. Several where in the ditch, one went sliding thru the stop light and before me there was two horses running along the ditch looking for a way to get back into their pastures.. I kept focused and went slow and steady.

I reached Walmart - Yes, in the small little town closest to me that is all there is to find computer parts. As I got out of the truck I looked up and who was there but my Computer Geek!! It was like a Holiday Angel had landed. I reached him and grab his arm as if he was a life line... I told him what had happened and he so kindly walked me to the computer center and picked out exactly what I needed. He smiled and wished me a Happy Holidays and I did the same... Today, the universe is going to be kind.

Next, as I passed the men's department I saq what looked like Carharts... I went to see if they had any small sizes but not luck. However, right next to that was lined jeans and you got it - I found some that would fit... Saved $45.00!! YES! As I was turning around from the dressing room they had men's polar fleece lined flannel shirts on sale. SCORE!! Then I managed to snag some long johns and heavy wool socks. See, the universe took pity on this gal.. I even managed to find my favorite brand of under pants - been hunting for them for some time now...

Just when I was ready to check out I saw a lady in the return line with what looked like a pair of the drapes I have been hunting for - I needed two more for my living room. Guess what - she had two in her hands. I waited for the clerk to hit all the right buttons and then I placed them into my cart. Just as I was turning the clerk said "Boy you are luck, we are cancelling that color this week" WOW, I am lucky!! See if I was not such a unlucky gal I would not have had all this things fall into line. I also must say that the other day while working on the computer I noted that a couple of keys where sticking and my mouse sometimes would jet around the screen for no reason - so see - it all happens for a reason.

I only wish I would remember that when the you know what hits the fan. I know in my heart there is always a reason and sometimes it may not be what I want it to be - life is at times pulling my chain but then rewards me... I love my new keyboard - still getting my fingers in the wrong spot and it has buttons on it that I have no idea what they are for but still I love it... The mouse moves like butter... Then there is the new clothes to keep this old body warm and comfy when spending those long hours out in the cold and wind. Just in time soon for baby watch...
Oh, did I mention, with the money I saved on the jeans I treated myself to a air popcorn maker... Yes, it is going to make popping popcorn much easier for me and my hens. Guess what I am making tonight??? Come on, let's not be slow, POPCORN!!!

So here is to Grace's GREAT Day!!!!
