Lucky Day

I actually had a 'lucky day'! They don't come along very often so when they happen you have to be ready. Ready for the surprise. Ready for the snippet of joy. When it happens you have to seize it, grab hold of it and relish the moment, try to prolong it, take advantage of it.

Lest you think that I won the lottery I didn't...but I did find money!

As I sat at my computer I looked down and behold...bills were sticking out of the 'money pocket' in my jeans! These were jeans that I hadn't worn in a while, apparently a l-o-n-g while.

Found Money! $15 bucks! Jackpot! I felt like I had won the lottery. Not a big one, but one none the less.

So...what do you do with 'newly found' money? I decided to call my husband and take him out to lunch. Luckily he had the time...

We decided to go to one of our favorite places, The Sampan at 7th East & 21st South. Yum!!! We LOVE the snowball shrimp! Large shrimp in a sweet white sauce with sugared walnuts on top of a bed of broccoli.
And when our lunch was through we opened our fortune cookies....Rick's fortune was: "The stock market may be your ticket to success." Well so far that definately has NOT been the case, but on a lucky day you can always hope.

My fortune cookie topped off the experience: "This week, you have a good head in matters of money." I can tell you I did have a 'good head' in money matters today! I wouldn't mind if more 'lucky' days would come along. It was an awsome day!
