What an unexpected and joyful day yesterday was..filled with surcies and God Winks! My friend K.C. and I planned a picnic on my back deck…but first (like “Goldilocks and the Three Bears”) it was too foggy and dampish, then too “pine strawey”…(literally falling off the trees into our plates) and finally too hot to sit out in the direct sun. So we ate lunch inside and then went on Boo’s garden tour…having the best time.
K.C. made the most delicious chicken salad sandwiches. I added some potato salad, chips, and a creamy slice of pie for dessert…along with some ice cold half and half tea. Perfect picnic!
Before she left K.C. handed me something completely unexpected but yet something I love. It started out as a package in a Christmas bag…she wanted it to be my first Christmas gift…a pre-season introduction gift.
Five different blocks were bubble wrapped…and as I put them together in the correct order..it was a most unique nativity scene. (title photo)
Suddenly the doorbell rang and the mailman handed me a large box…’Who could this be from?‘ I thought to myself. Something was in a large plastic bag and it was blue. Suddenly I, intuitively, knew what it was.
Brooke and I gave Libby and Jackson a blue jacket for their birthdays at the beach and now Libby and Jackson were reciprocating…
What fortuitous timing with the possibility of the first frost arriving this weekend! Bluebirds are calling! I asked Vickie if she could take a quick photo of me in my new blue jacket (to send my “beautiful benefactors”…in the back yard/garden. She did and then showed me some of her hanging plants blooming for the first time unexpectedly…another happy unexpected encounter.
Isn’t life exciting? On any ordinary day something unexpected can take place that is also in your favour…as if the universe has singled you out with a big smile and a wink. When you receive unexpected surcies that you love and hold dear…a warm fuzzy feeling settles inside.
So until tomorrow…Always cherish the unexpected encounters that lift your spirits and make you feel connected with everyone and everything in the universe…a sense of completion engulfs you…You feel a part of the whole…Savor these special surprises!
