Up, Up and Away!

Strike up the band! It's Spring Break!

It's a blessed week away from work. And here I am toodling away on a bus to the airport.. .. Here I come Utah! Ready or not.

I got up at 4:00 a.m. The flight is at 8:00. Last night I got packed early enough so I could get some semblance of sleep. But no, I stayed up watching Bones. I got to bed at midnight. Everyone can run on 4 hours of sleep, can't they?

I'm off to see my cuties. Curly and Sweety. Seven marvelous days with my daughter, Nancy Drew,  SWH and the most adorable granddaughters ever. I'm so excited!

Inventory time. Did I remember my pajamas? Did I bring my wallet? Did I bring all my charger cords? What about my shoes, extra sweater, make up and pills?  Thank goodness my iron has automatic off or I'm sure I'd be wondering about the proverbial iron otherwise.

This is my first time writing my blog from my phone. New adventures every day.

My real purpose of writing this morning was to let you know that kindness exists in the most unlikely places.

It wasn't that cold this morning. Maybe 40°. I'm just wearing a sweater. There was only one other person there at the bus stop. We talked a little. Of course the obligatory weather chat ensued. I mentioned where I was going and how it was colder there. I hardly ever bring a coat with me. My daughter has plenty of coats I can use.

I started to say that I hadn't brought a coat to tell him about my daughter's closet. I didn't make it past "I don't have a coat when he quickly asked,  "Would you like to use mine? "

At first I was going to protest when it struck me how kind an offer he made. I then thanked him sincerely and declined.

How amazing. So thoughtful of him. I can tell you that he had made my day even happier than it was before.

I'm so glad to share this with you. I hope it makes your day happier too.

Off I go. .. To family.

Oh shoot! I forgot my charger for my Nook!  Well I can rest in peace now. No more worrying. I figured out what I forgot.


  1. How lovely! What a wonderful gentleman - to offer his coat. You'll have to pay that one forward sometime.
    Have a wonderful time with your grandgirls! and their mommy.

    1. It's definitely a pay forward and I plan to pay it for sure. I'm having a great time here. I'm at the end of day two! Lots of lovely time left.

  2. I hope you have a wonderful time. It is getting a bit warmer here in Utah. :D

    1. Yes thank goodness is warmer. ..I was out here for Christmas and brrrr! I'm making the most of every minute here!


I love comments. They make me smile and feel warm and fuzzy. To show you my appreciation, I try to answer everyone's comment. :)
