The other day, I wrote that I missed my macro lens terribly but would learn to live without it until the folks at Nikon mailed it back all fixed. I’m sure you’re all getting quite tired of it all.
Well, a friend wrote me that day, telling me that she wasn’t using her macro lens very much and I was welcome to borrow it. I was stunned, but politely declined, thanking her all the same.
And then a co-worker from school e-mailed me the same day, asking if I wanted to borrow her lens over a weekend. I thanked her and told her maybe I would do that but I was fine for now.
And then the first friend wrote back and insisted that she really was not using the lens all that much, and she’d be glad to lend it to me. Then she packed it up and shipped it FedEx.
And it came today!
I think she got tired of hearing me say how much I missed it. I don’t want to embarrass her by revealing her super hero identity, so that will be kept my secret for now. She knows who she is, and I thank you, my friend.
I had some tiny little Queen Anne’s Lace that I’d put in a little blue vase, so I tried out the lens on that this afternoon. The light was low but still, I am happy.
I was happy all day, in fact. There must be something in the air, or perhaps it’s the wonderful weather that we’ve been enjoying. I was even glad while paying all my bills tonight.
And that’s highly unusual.
My husband is laughing at the TV and George is getting upset that I don’t keep tossing Scary Bird. I’ve thrown it at least sixteen times. Enough already! The odd thing is that he’s fetching it when it’s called either Scary Bird or Paraguay Falcon. I guess my husband has been working on him. Either way, it’s been a month now and it’s still his most favorite toy in the world.
Besides frisbees and sticks, that is.
Hope your day is a good one. See you tomorrow, my friends . . .
