A Series of Coincidences or Something More?

Yesterday morning it was colder than I thought, but not cold enough to wear a full sweater, so I put on one I never wear that has three-quarter length sleeves. It’s a pretty shade of purple, but I have nothing to wear with it so I haven’t worn it for years and years. Usually I’ll put something like that on, take it off and wear something else. But I didn’t. Which isn’t like me at all.

So when I went to the post office, a UPS truck was parked across several parking spaces and I couldn’t get close. It was about to rain and I had a big box to ship for an item I had bought that wouldn’t work, so I parked by a pet supply shop that’s new but I never go into. I go to a family-run one or Walmart for pet supplies because the big store is too expensive.

After I dropped off the box, I headed back to my car, and the thought popped in my mind that the pet store might have a better pooper scooper than I picked up at Walmart. I didn’t find any, but then I saw collars and when I took the dogs in for their shots last week, I realized Max’s collar was way too tiny. He’d had it since he was a puppy. So despite normally picking up a collar at Walmart, that probably would have been less expensive, I found the least expensive one I could at the pet store and took it to the checkout.

The lady at the checkout counter tells me she loves my sweater. I figured she meant the pretty shade of purple. “The dragonflies,” she said.

They’re rhinestone and I hadn’t even noticed them when I put the sweater on. They’re more subdued. Like I said, it had been years since I’d worn it. “Oh, yes, I love dragonflies,” I said. (And purple!)

The woman was about thirty and she said, “My sister just died a couple of days ago.”

“Oh, I’m so sorry.” The comment was so out of the blue, I was kind of taken aback.

“She loved dragonflies. When my little boy saw a dragonfly yesterday, he said that his aunt was visiting them.”

“Oh.” And then it dawned on me. All the strange coincidences: buying new merchandise that wouldn’t work, deciding to take it back to the store before it poured rain, wearing a sweater I haven’t worn in years and years, being thwarted by the UPS truck so I had to park next to the new pet store I never thought I’d go into. Not finding the item I was thinking about buying there, but remembering another I needed to get, though I normally wouldn’t have bought it there. And then meeting the lady at the checkout counter whose sister had so recently died, who loved dragonflies and her little nephew saying he knew she was sending a message to them that she was with them whenever they saw one .

Rhinestones are actually crystal clear and these are very small.

And here I am with a sweater covered in them. Coincidence? Or was I guided to cheer up the clerk a little, a message to her sister that she was still there for her? The lady said she was telling her son when she got home that a lady wearing a dragonfly sweater came to see her, which would undoubtedly cheer her son too.

Coincidence? Or something more?

Okay, I’ve been bouncing my granddaughter on my knee, trying to write this, now off to feed her breakfast.

You never know when or how you might brighten someone’s day, but what a great way to start a day!

Hope yours is great!

Fairy Houses & the Fae

The fairies were trying to distract me yesterday. Really, they were. But I persisted and finished the edits on Flight of the White Wolf, sent it to my 2nd beta reader, got the word count on Bounty Hunter Gets Her Wolf and planted the boxwood.

Wait, you say, BUT you said you were going to get the proofing done on Exchanging Grooms too.

Did I say that? Okay, didn’t quite make it on that, but I did finish proofing over half of it, will finish it and make changes to the manuscript and send it in again for review by the print company before lunch time.

And, work on my word count for Bounty today. 10,000 words, 70,000 to go. At 2,000 words a day, it’s doable!

It’s pouring out!! Lightning, thundering. It’s the same as in the storms I wrote about in Flight. That’s some of why I wanted to get the plants in the ground yesterday before the rains started later in the day. Today is going to be a rain day. A vampire day….

Have a great day, even if the fairies come out to “play” with you. That’s never a good thing, by the way. Missing keys. Things stop working. Believe me, I know.

See? What did I tell you? One of the fae slipped away.

A Bit of a Fairy Garden

close up of blue and silver wind chimes sunset 001 (640x427)Added some wind chimes with glass baubles and a blue glass bottle for some interest. A sparrow jumped on the wind chimes, scared himself and jumped on the feeder while a house finch watched him. The fairy wind chimes didn’t scare them off.

I couldn’t decide, have everything blend in or be bright and colorful and whimsical? The fairy garden won out. 🙂

A Very Jaguar Christmas was sent back to the editor. And I’m back to working on Golden Fae!

Have a great Sunday!!!

Faery Realms Facebook Party Today

I was busy cleaning for my Christmas guests and all for their next visit, but had to stop because of the facebook party and get ready for that.

Max Sleeping on my Lap While I'm Typing

Max Sleeping on my Lap While I’m Typing

Max crashed, and the bug man is coming. So much to do, so little time. I was proofing The Vampire…In My Dreams teen audiobook yesterday, but when Max was playing, I took a video and the audiobook is playing in the background. 🙂 When I have time, I’ll share it.  I also had to come up with a new title for the 3rd book in the Blood Moon teen vampire series, and a tag line. So I was rereading the book I started for it to get an idea. Don’t like the storyline now, so will come up with a new one. 🙂 So always a million book things going on. Need to reread His Wild Highland Lass over again. Finished edits, but want to make sure I didn’t make any new mistakes with the changes. 🙂 And….I’m behind on my word goals for Phantom Fae. Is it any wonder? I hadn’t expected the audiobook to come back for proofing so quickly.
