Not as Planned

I did not expect to hop in my car first thing this morning and drive to Nelson – and spend a good portion of the day there. But sometimes you just have to roll with it.

The issue was more stuff with the car. Something about a ball bearing (or two or three – who knows how many of those things a car has?)

At any rate, while the car was in the shop, I did the weekly grocery shopping and then wandered around town. The lilacs were in full bloom – the odour intoxicating. Soon our own lilacs will flower and I will fill the house with them.

I grabbed a sandwich to go at the Co-op and sat on a sunny bench in the park, watching the swallows flit in and out of their houses. So nice.

And then, on the way home, picked up a few basket stuffers for the planters.

Still managed to get home in time to plant the cherry tomatoes in their huge buckets.

An odd day – not as expected – and you know what? A lovely day. I am feeling the love. I have that sense that all is as it should be and that good things are on the way.

  1. Good things are here. Every day. With all the challenges and adversity – blowing up vehicles and blowing up plans – life is nothing but good because we’re in it. Lovely lilac photos and ours are on the way! Thank you for making today special.
