Yesterday was a good day.
It was grey again but there was a light shining around me somehow that made things all fall into place.
I lived a really good day.
It started with a little craftiness. I was going to lunch with my new Gal Pal Susie Riley. She has a thing (like I do !) for the silly Geico commercial with the little pig going wee…wee…wee all the way home.
Cracks me up every time !!!
Well, my sweet hubby David, knowing of Susie’s love for said commercial, suggested that I should make Miss Susie a pinwheel as a fun thing to do that would make her smile.
I loved the idea !
I looked up some instructions (it has been a long while since I made a pinwheel!) and got out some pretty orange paper (Susie seems like an orange to me – bright and full of energy) and created a little giftie for my new friend.
Then I headed out to the hairdresser to get the do redone. I had a great time with Deb, my hairdresser. She is a sweet, really positive person and she have me the best scalp massage…oh, Lordy, it was good…
She has decided she would like to have a little bowl of Rock My World rocks at the salon so she can share the love with her clients.
We are going to make it so.
Here is a self-portrait as I left the salon on my way to meet up with Susie Riley in Concord, NH.
Though it was gloomy and grey outside,
Susie and I had a cozy and bright lunch at the Barley House restaurant.
We laughed and joked with our lovely waitress, Amanda, who was very envious of Susie’s pinwheel but who felt better when I let her choose a Rock My World rock of her own.
Amanda’s rock said “Embrace the Unknown”…and she did !
(Amanda was warned that her photo may end up on my blog and she was fine with that ! She is a photographer herself. Love those Creative Types !)
Susie had bought a brand new point and shoot camera that morning. Guess what ? It was the exact same one I got for my BD in October – a Canon Cybershot !

We had a chatty, giggly lunch, followed by some lovely shopping in cute little stores on Main Street in Concord.
When it started to rain, we headed back to the Barley House for a beer and were joined by Susie’s hubby, Rick, who works close by.
I have to say that Susie and Rick are really good people, and I am really enjoying getting to know them.
I truly love Miss Susie. She is a fun, ballsy, positive, life-lover with a huge heart and a quick, quick smile and a soul-warming laugh. Plus she is frickin’ hilarious !
She, of course, loved her pinwheel gift !
Rick may have been very glad that it was raining out when we left each other so that it couldn’t be stuck out the window to blow in the breeze.
But I know that both of our cars were filled with the sound of happy little piggies
going “weee..weee…whe…wheeeeeee !” all the way home !
I lived a good day.
I am so very grateful for this life and every precious moment of love and connection that I experience.
Life’s is good, Beautiful Ones ! Live it up today, okay ?
Big Love to you !
