There are times when life gives you little happy surprises that add more joy than you would expect. Yesterday, we experienced a few of these moments that I thought you'd appreciate.
I went into a store while Johny was waiting in the car. When I returned he told me he just saw a lady and little girl walking what at first looked like a dog, but after thinking about it he was pretty sure it was a goat on a leash. A goat? On a leash? So we drove around a bit, and sure enough, it was a goat on a leash! I know people have goats for their milk, making cheese, and lawn maintenance, I suppose a pet goat is reasonable. And no, there was no Veterinarian office in the area. It was cute and we chuckled at the possibilities.
Then I came across my first blooming daffodils of the season while waiting at a red light in town. I noticed them out of the corner of my eye, and immediately yelped with delight. I snapped this picture right before the light turned green. The daffodils in our yard have sprouted but have no buds yet; it was nice to see the promise of spring!
THEN, while we drove up the mountain toward home, we were discussing the rain/ice/snow predictions for our area. We agreed that we probably wouldn't get anything, though Johny did say since they were saying we would get only rain we'd probably get snow. As we continued to climb, I started little pings on the windshield. We decided it must have been tiny sleet and it was bouncing right off the glass, leaving no wet remains. Shortly after that, we started seeing little white flecks in the headlights. Snow? Shortly after that we noticed a thin white film on the side of the road. Snow! Shortly after that snow was falling!
Little unexpected cheer-filled surprises make for a very good day, don't you agree?
