Friday the 13th has always been a lucky day for me. Here’s how my last Friday the 13th went:
In the morning, I had the opportunity to tour and meet employees in different areas of my company I don’t usually interact with. Getting to know the amazing people I work with better and see the interesting work they do is always one of the highlights of my work.
One of my colleagues was celebrating her 30th work anniversary, so next stop was cake and refreshments.
It was a beautiful warm September day so I enjoyed a quick walk at lunch, then we treated our writer’s group to an ice cream during a mid-afternoon break. Definitely not your typical day at work!
I came home to a beautiful puppy with lots of tail wags and the aroma of homemade stew wafting through the air in the crock pot.
Friday nights we’re usually whipped, but Clare had a hockey practice in Napanee at 8:30, so we packed up the car and hit the road.
Just as I was thinking how tired I was and was wishing I could have stayed at home, we drove into a packed parking lot.
In a serendipitous twist of fate, Clare’s practice landed on the same night in the same area as a free exhibition game between the Kingston Frontenacs and Ottawa 67s. I caught the last half of the game, which turned out to be a barn burner. The Fronts were down 4-1 in the third, scored two goals within 10 seconds, then with one minute left in the game, pulled their goalie and scored to tie the game 4-4.
I couldn’t have asked for a better day.
This week’s #HappyAct is to channel the good fortunes of the universe, and have a Happy Friday the 13th.
