My wallet, where was it. Thinking, thinking......when was the last time I used it. After the felting class at the school I had gone to the drug store to get a couple of things...used my debit card....out to the car and home. That was Wednesday. Last night, choir, and my bag full of books....looked and didn't see it, so I started to panic. Where was it? It had all my cards in it, my driver's licence... Yikes! It was lost, and the search began.
Check the car, both seats. Check the trunk. Nothing! Ok, think.... Did I lay down? Check the couch....pull the cushions....not there. Check it again, just in case I missed it. Not there. Ok, what was I wearing? Check the pockets, even though I had worn the same jacket to choir...pockets, empty.
Oh, the wool containers. Perhaps I had slipped it in there. It's just small, perhaps it got mixed up in the wool. Not there. I go to bed thinking that if I dropped it at the store, or in the parking lot, wouldn't some nice person have found it and let me know.....or maybe I did drop it and a not so nice person picked it up and kept it. No, I told myself. It had to be here!.....
Up this morning, bright and early, well, maybe not so bright. The first thing on my mind right after coffee, was finding the wallet. Search the car again, the couch again, the wool again, the pockets, again, and every shelf and floor space. Finally, I looked again in my choir bag, and there inside my music binder, in the bag where I had already looked twice, was the little wallet. FOUND!!!!!!!!!
The relief was overwhelming. I had it, I didn't lose it, it was here all the time. How did I miss it. How could I be so empty headed. Thank you God! I'm an idiot. I looked here. Oh, I am exhausted. I grabbed that little found item and put it right in my purse, vowing to be more aware of what I was doing. Vowing I will always keep it in my purse. I'm ok, now. What was 'not' lost was now found.
On a less stressful note, I finished the painting I was working on. The friend in the picture liked it, and so I gave it to her. I was not completely satisfied with it. The face gave me great difficulty, and I finally had to stop 'fixing' it, before I ruined it.

It is a beautiful sunny day today. I hope to get outside and do some garden work, if my body will allow it. I have also had two wood ticks on me, so will be checking myself and Sadie for the little ticklers.
Enjoy the spring day.....I will be.....now....after the great search.......
