A Kismet Kind of Week!!!

And Boy oh boy did I ever just have one.... Each thing I did or each thing that happened last week (Monday through yesterday) ...happened for a 'reason' ..one thing lead to another ..just a constant ever flowing little trail of interesting and meaningful happenings ... all feeling like they should have happened. I have had days like that in the past... something happens and it feels somewhat magical...but to have an entire week of it... well, needless to say that each day I was laying in wait for that certain something to happen... made for a VERY interesting week. Just a tidbit of what happened... last week it started off with hearing from people we have not been in touch with for Years and Years ...but not just hearing from them...it was happening within a couple of hours of speaking of them... but not just in memory, mentioning things like WOW, wouldn't it be wonderful to move to Australia.... and then, out of the blue to hear from a dear friend who lives there that we have been out of touch with for years...same with another dear friend from Chicago...we took her doll out of a case held it and looked at it , and the next day we heard from her via her daughter/Facebook ...I mean it has been years since we spoke.... and about 4-5 more of those during the week....
Richard wants to learn guitar...a friend is teaching him...Richard has no guitar of his own, our neighbor from across the street comes over and says they are selling their sons guitar, do we want to buy a guitar...WHAT THE!!! I had items I was getting rid of...odd things that have been packed in drawers for ages... I spoke with another friend on the phone and she just happened to be looking for the exact thing I was getting rid of....I had to go and get new Printer ink...before I headed out the door...our printer went belly up.. They happened to be having a GREAT SALE on Printers at Staples that day but I could not justify putting my old one out to pasture as it was still working...barely!...I swear....it knew it was time!! We felt to hose off the patio the other morning at around 5:30am ... noticed a couple of our hoses on our drip system were off.... Richard thought maybe he should check the Pressure Regulator...sure enough...it was soooo close to blowing up...pressure high enough we could have blown our water softener, dishwasher, pipes in the attic...which has happened lately to many that I know...there are many more things that happened... , who knows, may still be happening even as I type this...
So needless to say I was keeping a watchful eye all last week, did a lot of head shaking and "hmmMmmMmmm'ing" I don't think I have ever had a full week like that...may never again...it was so interesting while happening I can tell you...
Not sure if it was kismet, fate, Premonition based, guardian angel or just dumb luck...whatever it was...it seemed to blow in on the warm wind...swirled around in our lives for a few days and then moved on to another unsuspecting soul who is preparing to be amazed...

Don't ya just love weeks like that...

Back to reality based living... Oh, set up my first ETSY Page today...nothing up yet, hopefully soon...I just finished my Mad Hatter Shadow Box... VERY different for me, but it was lots of fun...will probably put him on ESTY... working on a new Miniature Witch and about to photograph Argus Filch...will post here soon.
And of course Wednesday I am doing nothing more than standing in line to see Harry Potter and eat HUGE Amounts of popcorn and Butterfinger Bits ....I feel the stomach ache already...

Have a Super Sunday Everybody...

Hugs,
Jodi

Wow....what a week. I get the odd one of those but never a whole weeks worth !

Good luck with your etsy shop.....I hearted you :-)

I have put the odd thing on there but ages ago...it is very easy to use.

Oh and Jodi....I asked a question on a wigging glue a couple of days ago...if you have a chance would you mind taking a look...it might be something you are familiar with.

Enjoy the movie :-)

Also I went over and posted two messages on your blog about the Glue...sorry, wish I had seen sooner...

Hugs,
Jodi

Hi Jodi

No probs...I appreciate you helping me out.

Besides, I have my Alice in Wonderland rose tree to finish before I can think of sculpting my aging rock star :-)
