It feels like it should be Friday. This week, with only two days that have passed, has been far too long.
Our lovely Hank the Dog stopped walking a few days ago, and the vet tells us that he probably has arthritis. We all just want to hug our big fluffy puppy. Big Dog will have some x-rays later in the week to help us understand the problem a bit better.
Needless to say we all needed some cheering up today. We really don’t do bad days around here, so we decided to turn the day around, starting with a big cup of mandarin and lemon tea.
We thought about all the things that make us happy, – and did them!
We planted over a hundred flowers, added a little garden to the children’s playhouse, sent a surprise parcel to my sister, painted, read stories, and made some new friends.
Then the Parcel Force man delivered some lovely things, and he called me “Mrs. Flower” . I know it’s my name, but still, after all this time, it makes me happy to hear it. Most people use my first name, and he usually does, too, which is why it made me extra happy! I love being Mrs. Flower!
The parcels included some fun things for Book Number Three, which will be published in September. I can’t talk about Book Number One or Book Number Two, but Book Number Three, well, I can share a bit about it, which makes me so happy. It’s a very exciting process.
There is always something good, even on what seems like a pretty bad day, we just have to keep finding the light.
