Every day from December 1st until Christmas I'm hanging an ornament in an outside public place as a Random Act of Christmas Cheer.
Today was all about getting stuff done and crossed off my To Do list. First was a trip to the gym for a piyoga class, then five different errands as I made my way back home, Once I made it home there was a pile of paperwork to tackle and multiple phone calls to make. To get ready for my busy day, after breakfast I made myself a lunch to eat on the road, then started piling the things I'd need while I was out on top of my purse so I wouldn't forget them.
I lost track of the time and had to scramble to get out of the house and to the gym on time. I grabbed an armful of things off the island, threw it in the car, and zoomed out of the driveway. Thanks to some great stoplight timing I pulled into a gym parking space right on time, I reached down to grab my yoga mat, but it wasn't there. In my rush I'd left it sitting on the island. (I borrowed a group exercise mat, which made an acceptable substitute.)
Fortunately, I did not forget my bag of ornaments, so on the way out of the parking lot I stopped to hang one on a tree next to a stop sign. I wonder how many people will look over that way when they stop?
