A recent spell of good luck has left me walking around happy. Rather like when you get out of bed in the morning and the warmth of your sleep stays with you in a cold kitchen.
First, I won a giveaway. Winning things reminds me that you don’t have to work hard for everything nice.
Kate, at love you big, makes these vintage map notebooks and sells them via her Etsy shop. I won 3. I love them. My intent is to give as Christmas stocking-stuffers. However, I may be unable to resist taking one for myself. I’m a list-maker. Without a notebook list-making becomes a self-flagellating act, a neurological twitch leading to bad driving. Probably higher car insurance payments. With a notebook, list-making is almost as good as meditating. Can be done in public. Thank you, Kate.
Second, Buckeroomama at Mamahood, Among Other Things gave me the Blog de Ouro award. It has no requirements. Again, something nice, no hard work.
You may remember Buckeroomama. Or at least her kids. Zoe. Josh. Any time I need a dose of cute kids they’re always there to help out. Thank you, Buckeroomama.
Third, many of you made very supportive comments on this week’s Saturday post. Out of the generosity of your hearts, it appears. I feel I am a lucky person. My suspicion is that feeling lucky isn’t too far from grace.
Thank you very much.
