At this present moment, there are so many things I can write about. So many little things I am grateful for. And this is what it's about - what can I be grateful for right now, right at this moment. Here's what happened between yesterday and today:
Lyft. Last night I worked for a few hours. Most of my rides were okay, but I gave one guy a ride and he told me I was his favorite Lyft driver ever. I ended up giving him my card so if he wanted to get in touch with me again he could. It was just a cool ride, easy conversation. You never know who you might meet.
Bowling. Today my nephew, Connor, called me twice and texted me 15 times until I got back in touch with him. He and I and his dad ended up going bowling, which ended up being really fun. Jason actually used me as a Lyft driver too, to take them. Haha! After bowling we went back and watched the end of a disaster movie and ate homemade pizza. Such a fun, unexpected afternoon!
Wine, Coffee and...more coffee. I've been watching my friends' neighbors dogs over the weekend while I'm housesitting their place. And so then, one of the other neighbors asked if I would water their plants over the next few hot days. Michelle brought me back some Green Salmon coffee from Yachats and gave me a bottle of wine. And Cathi, the other neighbor, gave me a $20 Starbucks card. That's what happens when you say yes.
Antman. Yesterday Jason (my brother), Connor and I went out to the Beaverton Cinetopia to see "Ant Man". I had no expectations of this movie and ended up loving it! One of the best movies I've seen lately. And, the awesome thing was Jason had some expired Groupons so we paid under $10 for three of us to see a Saturday afternoon movie.
Brunch. I stopped in at home this afternoon, while working for Lyft, just in time to finish off the last little bits of brunch Kelly (my housemate and landlord) had made for herself and her guests. Perfect timing! And, I was starving anyway.
The Pugs. Ollie and Yogi. Pugs are not my favorite dogs, but these little guys were really good. Even if I fed them a little late, or sometimes they had to stay in the laundry room at their house while I was gone, they were such good dogs. Michelle said this has been the least crazy reunion she has had with them
Connor. Tonight my nephew is over hanging out again. I warned him he was going to have to watch some "Lord of the Rings" extended-version movies, and he said he was okay with that. So I think we're going to have ice cream and watch some movies. It's nice to be housesitting so close, and we get to hang out.
My life keeps expanding and expanding and expanding. I am having so much fun right now! Embracing new experiences and meeting new people. This has become the constant in my life. Blessings upon blessings upon blessings are being heaped on me, and not always in the way I think. This week is sure to be full of more magic and fun. Happy Adventuring!!
