I've got Mitts!

THE Mitts.
The red ones.
With the white maple leaf on each palm-side.
Olympics 2010 mitts!

I won them in a drawing. I hardly ever win drawings. Gave up on the Lottery. The last time I won the Lottery was several years ago. Won $30. Stopped by a 7-Eleven to claim my prize. I was on my way to pick up a friend to take her to the train station. I owed her $30. Love that serendipity.

So... don't hate me because I'm beautiful. Hate me because I got Mitts!

Spring has sprung with a dollop of Summer added in. Yesterday, Easter Day, was glorious weather-wise. Add in lunch with the local contingent of my family and it was as near perfection as one can get. Flowers are in bloom; tree buds have blossomed. The beauty of the season is everywhere.

When I came home this past Friday, the red message-waiting light was blinking on my caller-id. While I was listening to the messages, there was an electronic crunch and the caller-id options popped up. I tried to get it straight but have ended up with MENSAJE! showing... 'Messages' in a language I don't recognize. And I can't get the red message light to stop blinking. At least the id shows in English when a call is ringing in. I love electronics.

So... the MENSAJE! of the day is... Life is an adventure. Enjoy.
