A Blond’s Gas = Grass & Glasses – DoWoo #247/365

I visited Walter in hospital today.  When I was leaving the grounds I noticed there were gardeners digging up 2 large rectangles of grass and tilling the soil for planting.  I had just been thinking and sourcing sod to repair an area of the back yard grass which was damaged over the winter. I considered stopping and asking what they were doing with the grass they were removing….but thought it may be a bit too out there…so kept moving. 

5115848I had just turned onto the main road outside the hospital when the car sputtered. I looked down at the gauges to realize I needed gas!  I immediately turned the car around and headed back. I barely made it to the entry into the hospital grounds when the car ran out of gas.  I coasted in and ended up parked next to the gardeners.

While waiting for the CAA truck – I chatted with the gardener Brian who agreed to share the grass strips he was digging up. AND I just happened to have put a blue tarp in the trunk the day before…a perfect way to fill the entire trunk of the Mustang with grass! 

CAA arrived and had to follow me to the gas station so I could give them the exact change for the gallon of gas they arrived with.  Having gone off course by now, I decided to make a slight change and go somewhere else on the way home.  I asked for and received direction on how to get to a different road.  No sooner had I turned onto this road when Voila – I spotted a Walmart. Walter had just reminded me to stop at the Walmart back home to get drinkable yogurt for Greg’s lunches.  This was right in front of me…so I stopped.

But for some reason I stopped to check anyway. I find the same manufacture has alternate ones specifically for my type of glasses! And they had a pair in the size I needed. 

wB7HLI know…I know…a weird day!   Because of what Walter referred to as my “blond” moment for gas I ended up with grass AND glasses! Both things I had been searching for. 

THIS is a day which truly shows you to embrace the twists and turns…they get you to where you need to be in order to provide you what you have asked for.  I am most grateful and feel blessed.
