Life is full of surprises especially if one looks for them. Keeping this week’s theme of surprise in mind; I kept an eye out for some on my “adventures” yesterday. It was a surprise in itself that I even left the house at all. I had planned to stay home and watch the end of the world from the comfort of my couch since I missed the movie with John Cusack but my natural antsy got the best of Nancy so MM and I headed to one of my favorite spots; The Grotto (Big surprise, haha)
There we toured the beautiful upper gardens and I was truly surprised by a lovely pink Camellia blooming. Typically these beautiful shrubs bloom in very early Spring in this climate and it being the first day of Winter, I was taken off guard as surprises tend to do. I suppose this may be a sign of climate change (Another sarcastic surprise with yet another sarcastic haha)
After some uplifting renewal and a penny or two deposited at St. Jude we left for another favorite spot of mine: Starbucks. (More sarcastic surprise) There we sipped Chai Lattes and enjoyed the ambiance. I especially enjoy this place during the holidays. Everyone is more relaxed and people seem happier than normal…and I do so appreciate the Christmas music.
Delightfully another surprise presented itself: A fellow latte lover of the canine kind! I guess humans aren’t the only animals who love to partake in a holiday treat….
….and so it went. I am glad and a bit relieved that except for these small happy surprises the day was quite uneventful. If you want to read about what could have happened yesterday take a peek at my wordy blog, if you don’t already know–I have another…and surprise! I mention John Cusack in it.
