Blessings in the Details

It's so easy to whine and complain when things don't go right.
It's so easy to give thanks when big things do go right.

But what about when things are not awful OR outstanding.  
That's when the blessings are in the details.
I had a day like that today.

I had scheduled Mac lesson at the Apple store in Albany for 8:30 am.  
Boy do I LOVE being in the mall before the stores open, and I especially 
love being at the Apple store before it opens when there are only a few 
of us there for our lesson and it's all quiet and peaceful.

I learned two things that have had me scratching my 
head for quite a while.  SCORE!!

After my lesson, I headed over to Bath & Body Works to get another
 bottle of my favorite hand lotion--Fresh Picked Tangerine.

I was informed that the line of Fresh Picked was on sale for 50% off.
Be still my heart.  SCORE!!

Of course I had to make a stop at Starbucks on the way out.  
My birthday was just a short while ago, so I had a birthday 
perk on my card.  Any drink free.

My usual drink of choice at Starbucks is caramel iced coffee.  
1) because I like it and 
2) because it's probably the cheapest thing on their menu.

But I splurged.
Salted Caramel Mocha--and the largest size they had.  SCORE!!

Driving through the parking lot, I saw this license plate.  Haven't seen a funky vanity plate, other than zooming down the highway, in quite a while.  SCORE!!

(I don't know, but the plate "hard times" on a BMW just seems like an oxymoron to me.)

The weather, on the drive home, was spectacular--coolish but with 
blue skies and puffy white clouds.  Another SCORE!!

After being home for a short while, a friend called and asked for a 
ride to the library.  We had a great, unplanned visit.  
It was short but sweet.  SCORE!!

Then I went to watch my grandson play soccer.  SCORE!!

After that I went to a photo meeting and learned something
 new about how to use my camera.  Yup, you got it, SCORE!!

And now I am watching one of my favorite shows, "Elementary". SCORE!!

So yes!!  The blessings are in the details.
