Happy Sunday, My Darlings!
So how are you doing this week? Anything super-fun going on with you? :spring5
This week, I AM HAPPY that Mr. Handyman was able to fix the bedside lamp I gave him to work on. I really wasn’t sure it was salvagable—it worked fine, but the base was a mess & the lamp kept falling over. But Mr. Handyman did a stupendous job of repairing it! And I’m so glad because A.) I love this stupid lamp & B.) it’s the lamp I use when I sit in bed to write. :spring11
I AM HAPPY that we’ve had a few very nice days when I could open up the house & let The Kittehs enjoy some fresh air & outdoor noises of the bird & squirrel variety. :spring14
I AM HAPPY that there are some really nice & honest people in the world. I recently spend $161 at a store about an hour from where I live, but after giving the clerk my credit card, the machine ran out of paper to print a receipt. She tried so hard to find another roll, but couldn’t & the store manager wasn’t there so she could ask for help. No problem; I simply wrote a check & she assured me the credit card charge had been cancelled. I figured I’d glance at my credit card statement when it arrived, but didn’t really think much more of it. Well, next think you know, I get a letter from the store. They clearly got my address from my check—& thank goodness they had because it turned out the credit card charge had gone through, after all. By the time they caught it, though, the check had already been cashed & they no longer had my credit card information to credit my account. :spring3
But how nice was it of them to make the effort to contact me & get that straightened out? Frankly, I wouldn’t have been the least surprised if they (or anyone else, if you know what I mean) had let it slide & thought, “If she comes in to complain, we’ll deal with it, but if not, we just made ourselves an extra $160 bucks. Woot!” Instead, they asked me to please contact them & were so nice about making sure my money was refunded. I already can’t wait to go back to that store, hopefully thank the manager in person, & spend more money there. :spring11
Finally—& perhaps most of all—I AM HAPPY that Perkins is once again offering their San Francisco Shrimp Stir Fry. Great googly moogly, is this stuff delicious. :spring2 I discovered it last year around this time (Lent) & am so happy they brought it back! Wish they’d just add it to their year-round menu already; I would certainly order it every time I stopped in.
If you get the chance to try it, let me know what you think, okay?
Your turn: what are you happy about this week that you’re eager to tell us about? :spring22
