|Life is like a box of chocolates.|
Monday, December 17
Well!! :D A crazy day in retrospect though it didn't sound that bad to begin with!! I finished up making the donuts and cupcakes I have made for some friends to give as gifts to their kiddoes... I LOVE making them, I just had a hard time finding the time with my smallest wanting so much attention!! It's really quite hard to sew with sharp pointy needles and a wriggling, cooing little bundle of joy in my arms!! ;D Anyhoo, they got done and I went to town to meet Rex at lunch, ran some errands downtown, stopped at Hobby Lobby to pick up some more fabric and felt and then headed home after dropping off my "baked goods" !! Oh, but did I mention that I did all of this with an ever worsening headache, the lowering sun streaming right into my eyes and a baby girl who screamed at the top of her lungs for most of the trip?! : ( Poor girl. I pulled over and fed her a couple of times and managed to reinsert the pacifier more than once, but eventually the crying got the better of me and my head. By the time I got home I had to go to bed with a migraine. Awesome. Anyway, after a little sleep and some Tylenol I managed to procure from my friend's house, I'm all better now! I DID manage to get in another act of kindness though!! ;D Whilst leaving the parking garage today we noticed that the lady who took our cash was wearing a santa hat and reindeer antlers on her head! We issued a hearty "Ho Ho Ho!" as we rolled up and she chatted happily with us as she found her change. Well I thought that she might appreciate a little kindness, so I took two individually boxed truffles, one cappuccino and one salted caramel and handed them to her... one for her and the other for her cohort across the way!! She was delighted! Made her day I think! :D Later whilst at the craft store I noticed a lady carrying a huge and heavy shadow box picture frame... I offered that she might go ahead of me in the check out line... again, she was very grateful and thanked me again after she got checked out. It really is remarkable how small things can make a person's day brighter just as much as big things. I've said before how I'd love to give out one hundred dollar bills but sometimes just opening a door for someone, letting them go ahead of you in line, complimenting someone on their hair cut or shoes... these things can make a big impact too.
