A Day Maker

I’ve had a very busy week running from one end of town to the other helping my daughter, Shantel, get a new state issued photo ID, bank card, college Id card etc., after she lost her wallet, and taking her to the Audiologist for new hearing aids… While trying to fit all this into my regular schedule of keeping up the house, shopping, cooking, volunteer work, visiting my mother, and trying to carve out some time for myself…, I was beginning to feel a little “put upon”… My entire routine was thrown off schedule since we needed to get all these things done before I start working on the next big project of helping Shantel learn her route to and from her classes which will start in a few weeks.

The last straw for me was when we got home from the Audiologist, and Shantel told me she forgot to let the Audiologist know she needs to have a “vent hole” made in her left ear mold that helps reduce excess background noise…The problem is the Audiologist is an hour drive, one way, from our house and this “after thought” will most likely mean we need to make yet another trip back to the Audiologist so they can include the vent hole in the ear mold before the ear mold is sent out for processing.. So now, I’m starting to think “I’m not having fun…, and there is no happy hour at the Audiologist… 🙂

However, just when I was feeling really low as I waited for Shantel to call the Audiologist and find out if we need to come back in or not…my husband, Bill, aka, Bro, came in with the mail and said there was a package for me from one of my BFF’s, aka Frissy, all the way from her New York City!

I was so excited, and as I ripped the package open, I was enveloped in the most wonderful fragrance of lavender, one of my favorite, favorite, things to smell…and just look at what I found in the package:


Isn’t that the most adorable, tiny, little thing you ever saw? And, it’s filled with fresh lavender, now how cute is that? I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! If you look closely you can see the little lavender seeds both in the front (above), and the back (below).


I decided I would make a tiny little hanger out of a paper clip and hang it on the lamp shade in the guest room, that is really my “girl’s room” where I go when Bill/Bro snores too loud. This is also the one room in the house that will never be a man cave, because I purposely did not put a TV in that room.:) I think my little lavender gift fits in perfectly with my cowgirl/western theme, don’t you?


So now, when I’m in that room trying to get some sleep, I can have the wonderful soft scent of lavender to fill my dreams.

If you follow my blog you already know I LOVE getting anything in the mail. I LOVE the anticipation of opening a card or letter and reading a hand written note. But, getting a package like this, is like Christmas, and it made my day.

THANK- YOU Frissy, for being my “Day Maker” this week…:)

Stay tuned!

    Just when you think it cannot get worst!!!! I love it also when a card, note, or a package comes. It makes you feel so special. So happy your day became brighter and you are fortunate to have a wonderful friend think of you and send something you can have to make your girly room smell so good and bring calmness to your sleep and to think it came just at that right time. That should be written into the grateful journal !!!!

    I have a friend who sends me a inspirational card and sometimes a fragrance container too. It always seems to coincide with a time that I can use a pick me up. I actually planted lavender in my butterfly flower box this year and plan to take some and use in my bedroom this winter. I love the lavender scent.
