This has been a week of celebrations from the minuscule to gigantic. It's amazing when I live my week wondering which event I will be celebrating on Saturday. I am thankful to Ruth for the encouragement of celebration. Also her honesty in her blogs which always cause me to pause and reflect. You can link up HERE.
Truth confessions I love Starbucks. IT is just is a little piece of heaven wrapped in a Non-Fat Chi yet the nearest Starbucks is 20 minutes from my home unless you count Krogers. I have been thinking and thinking and talking and talking to friends about purchasing a Keurig and you would have to know me to realize what a monumental decision this was. I finally purchased one from Kohls after I spent weeks waiting for them to go on sale, collected a coupon from my friend, Kelly, and saved my Kohls cash. The full prices was $124.56 and I paid $77.94. A minuscule celebration.
Thursday I was running errands and I went to get out of my car, and I had locked my doors and realized the store was not open yet. I got back in my car, closed the door and the car alarm went off. I could not unlock my doors, open my windows or do anything. It was a little scary, so I just started my car and thought that might stop it. It didn't so I drove around the parking lot with the alarm blaring finally it went off. I went into the store, came out and started my car - beep beep beep! Ugh what do I do now? Finally a kind older gentleman told me to turn off the car and he'd pull the wire on my battery. When he did that he thought it would reset the alarm but it didn't. He then pulled the fuse for the horn, and I finally could drive home. No horn and my flashers flashing. I wish this blog had sounds and videos kind of like Smellavision on the Cooking Channel. Now it's funny then not so much. Keep celebrating even the minuscule and the gift of a stranger.
