Friday I had planned to write about my aggravating day last Monday. It was one of those days where everything seemed to go wrong.
It started out with early morning tornadoes and went from there to a mid day electrical outage, half the cable TV channels being out, people not social distancing, etc. etc.
Now a week later, in hind sight, I can't even remember all of the things that went wrong that day. I guess they just amounted to aggravations and I wanted to update you on Trixie that day.
There were of course surprises too. A bag left on my door with chocolates was very sweet. Two phone calls from people just checking on me was also very nice.
On Friday Tessa called me on FaceTime. That's always a wonderful surprise. I feel very blessed and grateful that a seven year old likes to play with her grandmother, that we can laugh and have fun together over the phone.
The biggest surprise wasn't for me, but for my grandchildren. While we were talking my daughter and son-in-law returned home from an errand with four two day old baby ducks. They had previously had four ducks that the fox had picked off one by one.
I don't think I have ever seen Tessa so excited and I was also excited that I got to experience the whole thing with them. It was the next best thing to being there in person, and it reminded me that yes, we are living in scary times, but there are still little everyday surprises in this world.
I am shaking things up this week. My posts will come out on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. I'm such a rebel. (Actually, I forgot to schedule my post for yesterday, but that will be our little secret. )
