This week has definitely had that feeling of groundhogs day. It's been the longest dreariest week ever with so much to do at work I could hardly think or breathe. But here we are it's Friday- the weekend beckons and I remember the amazing things that have happened lately.
Look at this. Not much to the undiscerning eye. But let me tell you - this is my new carpet. Only about 2 or 3 weeks ago I began to notice how threadbare and old my carpet was. Well too bad I thought to myself - it will have to wait. I seriously can't afford new carpet so it will go right down to the bottom of the priority list. No sooner had I thought that than one of my friends called into work with a carpet sample. All the carpet was coming out of a bank - top quality - commercial grade wool - would I care to have it - NO cost!!! Hmm let me think about that . Why that would be a yes you are hearing.
Another friend just happened to know a carpet layer who happily came and last Saturday laid the carpet in the hallway and living rooms. There is also enough in my basement to do the bedrooms as soon as I save for the carpet layer to come back. Im so grateful for my new carpet. It looks so great.
In the same way I had been finding my old camera frustrating. I'm not a great photographer but in anticipation of my new job I'd been vaguely thinking it would be great to have a better camera. And what do you know. An opportunity has arisen for me to upgrade. The new camera is just what I need. Perfect for me. Here's a shot which looks forward to spring that I took on the way to work this morning.
SO even when it's a groundhogs day all week good things can and do happen.
Here's to unexpected good things. Marg
