Today was another beautiful day - just a tad cold -10C but:
1. Fortunately, I managed to work out the short row increases that I needed to attach a border to a triangular shawl. I won't tell you how long it took me to do the math. I'm just going to say that when I put it on a graph, it worked, finally!
2. I got a lovely note from a friend of mine on Facebook. I have shared many family stories with B. over the years. She is an amazing role model! I will always remember that for her 75th birthday she did an assisted sky dive. I hope that I'm that lucky when I get there. I'm working on it!
3. Luckily my husband managed to find chicken backs for soup. I love making soup stock; it perfumes the house and puts me in a great mood.
4. I also got a lovely comment from Norma on a previous post. Thank you so much. I must admit I didn't mind at all when the first two went off to university, because I got to clean their rooms! I finally got a chance to throw out all the moldy sandwiches and other crud that had collected during those really difficult high school years. I just couldn't bug them about everything, so I let their rooms go and so did they :)
5. Luckily, I was also able to pick up a copy of the magazine Victoria (Bliss) because my sister had sent me an e-mail saying that there was an article about a woman who owns a sheep farm and spins and dyes her own wool. At first I thought, this is a nice article; but I deal with a lot of people who own fibre farms, then I looked at it from my sister's point of view. I thought wait a minute! This is all about people who are lucky enough to be able to live "the dream." My sister saw a person who had been fortunate enough to escape to a farm, raise gorgeous animals and create fabulous yarn as their full time job! And really by extension, the article was about everyone who has been able to break out of the routine and work at something they love!!!
I'm really glad that my sister sent me the e-mail and that I made the effort to get the magazine and read the article, because, I needed to be reminded that I am very lucky to have the opportunity to work at Infiknit!
Saturday was the end of the first week of my "lucky day" diary and I have to admit, that although I haven't had any money just fall into my hands, I've been in a wonderful frame of mind and I have had energy to get things done, that have been cluttering up my mind, so this is a start. I still have some more "lucky" learning to do, though. I think that I have to do some more de-cluttering to free up even more mental space so I can be open for opportunities, when they present themselves and I have to expand my network, again to create more chances for good fortune to occur!
