You know the saying: Be careful what you wish for.
Well, sometimes wishing can lead to good things, too. In yesterday’s Hump Day Potpourri, my eagerly anticipated book (on Kindle) was due to release in 2/2013. I preordered it, expecting to wait quite awhile.
I heard from Patty, at Books, Thoughts, and a Few Adventures that it was already out in hardcover.
Guess what? I opened Sparky (my Kindle) this morning to find it there. Already! Tumbleweeds has a gorgeous cover, and the blurb captivated me when I read it.
How did that happen? Did wishing bring it to me faster? Well, I seriously doubt that, but I’m willing to accept the “gift” of a wish come true.
While thinking about wishes, I’m reminded of guilty pleasures from the past. This morning, I wrote at Chocolate & Mimosas about Another Guilty Pleasure.
Actually, the post includes a couple of them…and poses the question about what “floats your boat” these days.
That expression alone is a blast from the past.
When the days bring heat at ever early hours, we have to grab our pleasures where we can find them. And in my fridge is a large pitcher of iced tea…just waiting.
The big sofa is still angled, but the love seat is now in a different position. Will I ever stop rearranging this space now that I know I can?
What I’m reading now: Gone to Ground, by Brandilyn Collins.
What are you reading? And what do your pleasures look like today?
