Goodness, how can it be eight already?

Walking back from the shops this afternoon, I noticed I was happy ... for no special reason.

But I could find reasons.

  • It was a beautiful day.
  • There's a forecast of sunny for tomorrrow, so it should be a good market.
  • I found enough stones on Kingscliff Beach to replenish the give-away gratitude rocks, of which I only had six left. (They go like the proverbial hot cakes.)
  • Normally I choose pretty or interesting stones; today I had to take what I could get - and realised all stones are beautiful or interesting or both.
  • WriterHubby's acupuncture treatment this morning stopped the pain in his legs.
  • We've got chicken satay sticks for dinner, followed by cheesecake.
  • I followed some links from people on twitter and heard/read some wonderful poetry online.

 And so on and so on and so on. A good day!

Had client visit for psychic reading.  Lovely man, wonderful reading. I love how people are drawn to me for this purpose. As so often happens, he needed not only a psychic but me specifically - or at least someone with my particular areas of expertise and life experience.

And it saved our bacon financially, enabling me to put into the bank money I MUST have there for a scheduled payment on Monday.


1) A colleague noticed I am losing weight.

2) The Firstborn sent me $100 towards my computer fund.

3) WriterHubby came to the writers' group, was welcomed, and enjoyed it.

LOTS of things to be happy about today.

My Tai Chi class this morning was lovely, as always. It was a smallish class today: two newcomers, and two of us who still feel new and inexperienced – but when we two were asked to demonstrate Ta Chi to the others, as far as we’ve learnt, we got through it beautifully twice over.

I went for a walk.

Oh the joy of NOT having a smoke alarm that goes off interminably whenever you burn the toast or open the oven. (In our last house we had one that did - for 5 years - and couldn't disconnect it as it was attached to the wiring.)

I burnt the toast a little this morning, and - silence! It makes even burning the toast a joy. :-D

I'm very happy to have finished my blog about Thom's workshop.

It's not merely the fact of having completed it, but rather the fact that in the writing of it I got to relive a splendid afternoon that reminded me who I am. That was on Friday – the day before I began the Eight Days, or that afternoon would have qualified for sure. And see, it does anyway, a happy occasion that carries forward, reviving whenever I think of it.

Transmemed from [ profile] ishte 

1. Post about something that made you happy today, even if it's just a small thing.
2. Do this every day for eight days.
3. Tag eight of your friends to do the same.

I'm skipping the tagging. Do it if you like. (As [ profile] ishte  said too.) I am, because I think it's a lovely idea.

So for my first day – seeing Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince with WriterHubby.

I had a client coming for a psychic reading, who cancelled at the last minute because he's got a virus. His wife assured me he'll make another appointment when he's well. Meanwhile I looked at the movie program and said, "Oh, we could go and see Harry Potter". So we did, and we loved it.

In both the books and the movies, I must say I have great affection for the character of Luna – an eccentric psychic who dresses weird; perhaps I identify.  :)
