Because life does ebb and flow, I cried at a stoplight on my way home yesterday. Not only had I enjoyed a rooftop meeting on a perfect late-summer evening with two passionate, League-leader-friends, but when I checked my email, I found a wonderful surprise…
I do enter raffles when they benefit a cause I want to support, and I do aspire to a life stage when I can do more than just pay dues and throw a few extra dollars now and again at Basset Rescue of the Old Dominion. (Virginia = Old Dominion) I had meant to check on some of the auctions for this weekend’s Ramble (think bassets on parade?), but life got in the way. Thank goodness for social media; somehow, I managed to click over and enter a special raffle for some Sir Bentley scenes. The four seasons were represented, and the winter one is based on the Christmas Carol.
No coincidence; I love that story. I can’t wait to see this in person. I can’t wait to take the Knight shopping for a special curio cabinet or something for the blessed treasure.
But wait!! There’s more! We get a custom sculpture too. Basically Bloggless Susan and I have been in conference – it seems the DIVA already has an agent – and we have an idea…
I am beyond excited.
I can wish you a happy Thorsday after all. Gretchen is all about her happy Thorsday, because she’s showing off her birthday loot. I am still so very sad for my friends and relations who have big doggy holes in their hearts, but I am insanely thankful for the generosity that allows for special raffles and awed winners. I am grateful for every rescue everywhere, and all the people who care about pet health, safety and well-being. And I am pleased that I still seem to have that lucky horseshoe or whatever it is that allows me to win more than my fair share of goodies.
So, happy little friday too. Funny thing about these short work weeks… Monday is really extra sunday, Tuesday is fake monday, Wednesday doesn’t feel like the middle of the week because it really isn’t, but Thursday is still little friday.
Do you have any really cool art?
