Get this -my cell just started ringing. I picked it up off the bed where it was laying next to me. Split second surprise and then my mouth slowly stretched into a smile. Seems I was calling myself. No shit. The caller ID on the phone identified the number as mine. Now what is so damned important that I be calling my self? LOL Wait! Could it have been my alter ego? She could have been on the other end of the line. Guess I should have picked it up, eh?
Funny isn’t it? When life gets challeging, weird stuff starts to happen. Or maybe we’re just tuned in better to possibilities like your phone suddenly calling itself. Out of the blue. Or maybe, it’s just an anything can happen day.
Look what I found on the youtube last night! Talk about favorite movies….
Thankfuls 1-5: Youtube, the person who uploaded Desperado for us to watch free, Quentin and Robert, William Hjortsberg and Alan Parker, Micky Rourke.
Lighter? You say I need some lighter thankfuls? How ’bout these: I’m thankful to have a job that allows me to walk during my 15 minute break(s). Please note: I’ve never taken one of those 2 15 minute breaks allowed for folks in the “9-5″ world in my entire life. Until we moved to the new office.
Our new place is located in an office park with lovely landscaping and trees and a walking path. Quite nice for an urban area. Yo! Didja get that? I’m thinking there’s 2 thankfuls right there. Let’s add a 3rd one and make it a triad of work related thankfuls. Last Wednesday or Thursday I was out walking with a co-worker and as we were winding up our mile+ walk break there came a rustling sound nearby. We looked towards the sound to see a family of geese waddling out from under the pine trees and through the parking lot! One parent goose in the lead followed by a single file of 6 babies of the same size, little light brown bundles of fuzz. And then there was #7. He or she was the very obvious runt of the litter, er gaggle. The other parent protectively brought up the rear. It was so adorable! (I know Lizzi, Christine and Dyanne. No proof no credit lol. Phone is on the way real soon. Promise!)
Hey… how in the world did I get to 9 already?! Mine is not to question. Accept. Move on. Move forward. Which is what the Ten Things of Thankful blog hop has done for 100 weeks. 100 Lizzi. 100 :)
10) I’m thankful for another day. How can I not?
My phone started ringing tonight. It’s never too late for a “wake up” call….even from your self.
