An Angel on Taco Tuesday

Now not everyone gets to celebrate Taco Tuesday at Rosa's here.  I think a chain of the restaurant. OK Mexican food, forgot to order a margarita with it but a decent price. We usually treat ourselves with this little meal after we mow and edge our yard.  We have an acre so we think we deserve it.  Right?  Gotta treat ourselves every once in a while.   Well maybe all the time at this late date in our lives.  What not?

On the way home, the back way we go thru this neighborhood and what was there?  A garage sale, now most of them are on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays or Sundays. Usually one and a half days of any two of the days.    Eldon said do you want to stop and thought why not.  So he turned around and  back we went.  It turns out the couple had sort of just moved there from a neighboring town we use to live in back in the late 60's.   Turned out, we bought nothing they were just setting up but were selling to those who stopped.   The ladies mother use to work at Cloth World there in Odessa, now the odds are that I had visited with her because I use to make all three of our daughters clothing and mine back in those days.  So as much as I went to Cloth world we had to have crossed paths.   The garage sale lady said her Mom had passed away a few weeks ago at I think 92 and she had lots of her lace left over for when she worked at Cloth World.  She said come into the bedroom and I will show you. Well show me she did have  Tons of it, she said do you have a use for it?   Do I ever I replied and grinning all the while.  I asked are you putting this in the sale, she didn't know but she said pick out six of the spools and you may have them.  I had a discussion about paying for them and she would have no part of that.  So I took the lace and of course going to make her a Fabric book with my faeries and doings. 

The sweet lady was indeed my Angel for the day.  I am so lucky to have Angels visit me always and just goes to show they are around all the time.

Now what do you think?  I tried not to be a pig and made sure to leave what I thought the best laces for her incase she ever got the urge to use them.  
There you go my angel meeting and her sharing with me.   I am blessed I do believe.
Thanks for stopping by and seeing what is going on in my world.
