Having fun on a rainy day

This Friday morning looked pretty gloomy. Heavy clouds from horizon to horizon; the only way to tell time was by looking at the clock. And yet… it felt like an awesome day.

It helps to have plans for days like this, it really does.  Mine was to go to my favorite essential oil store with a friend who shares an interest in essential oils.  It is our favorite store because the owner is very excited about what she is doing.  Her business has grown since we first visited and is about to do so again.  And, I found the cutest little beaker for mixing blends.  Plus we were on a mission to get a starter set (most of one) for someone just getting started, or, just expanding her horizons in the field.  Choosing the best oils to get started with is really very simple, unless you’ve been using oils for awhile and have favorites that aren’t generally suggested to someone new.  Thing is, the more I learn about essential oils, the more excited I get about using them.  So, got a couple of basic oils and one really cool one and a great little bamboo box to store them in.  This would have capped an average day for me; but wait, there’s more!

Our next stop was M.O.M.  Like a kid in a candy store, only better!!!  ALL the stuff I like in one place.  My Organic Market has so many things to choose from, I have to practice restraint when I go in there cause I can’t think of anything for sale in that store to feel guilty about.  Or worried about.  The people who work there are friendly and helpful.  Conversant on the items for sale.  Comfortable.  What I suspect the old mom and pop stores were like before merchandising and business began holding more sway than people.  I feel like a person when I go in there, not a customer.  And I find what I’m looking for, that’s a plus.  But wait, there’s more!

We went to my son and daughter-in-laws to visit.  Before we left, we got to see everybody and the dogs!  It was a lesson to NOT take mood cues from the weather.  One of the little guys was thoroughly enjoying the rain pouring over the downspout, to him it was like a shower head and the water was not too cold.  The impromptu visit was really too cool to put into words.  Or, I just don’t know the words to accurately describe it.  Like a wish, or a dream come true.  What a great Friday! Rain and all.
