Two strange things happened to me today. First, I was catching up on a blog I like, and the author was talking about how great it is to accidentally come across a picture of someone using her artwork in a a home decor picture. So, I took a look thinking, "Oh, that would be nice....." and wouldn't you know it, next to her art was MY art....my peacock print! Nice.
Then, to add to that, we got home from a "forced" weekend away, as in a long trip back up to my parent's cabin to look for the car keys my husband swore were left there from our last trip the weekend before. Normally a new key made wouldn't be a problem, but to those who drive a Saab, you know otherwise. And wouldn't you know it- the keys weren't there. We returned home to find out to my very superstitious husband's horror that while we were gone, our water fountain stopped working. To the normal person, its no big deal. But to a crazy Italian, its just as bad as walking straight into the curse of the dreaded evil eye. So after a 4 hour trip, he got back in the car to buy another fountain. Immediately.
An hour later, and with a new fountain in tow, my husband was clearly more settled. And no joke, as soon as that thing was plugged in, and the water started bubbling, my son shouted from the entry way, "hey dad, are these your keys? I found them under the pile of shoes". No way.
