It was one of those ho-hum kind of days. I really wasn’t in the mood to do any of the piles of housework I had to do. Nor was I in the mood for a movie or to play on the computer. So I did what I always do: I headed over to Half Price Books.

Construction rerouted me and I ended up at a stoplight not on my normal route. Construction also meant that the light was out of sync. As long as I was bored, I decided to check my geocaching app. What’s nearby?

Lo and behold, on the other side of the light was a geocache! The hint: “look for the blue.”

I ended up behind a doctor’s office near the trash next to the bright blue recycling bin. Hanging on for dear life, was a blue cache filled with trinkets.

The whimsical cache brightened my day. After all, my favorite color was blue and I believe deeply in recycling. I felt lucky to be living in such a wonderful day and age. GPS, geocaches, and books have all brought life to my life. My ho-hum day became my lucky day as my attitude changed. I replaced the cache and proceeded on my errands with a happier outlook on life.

Found near my house.

About scribedscribbles

Like most people, I hate filling out profile pages. Who am I? Well, I’m a wife, teacher, daughter, and friend. I’m also an intellectual, an introvert, a night owl, and a bookworm. I work with struggling readers and overachievers, ages 11 to 15. I take care of students, a cat, two rabbits, friends, and my husband. I enjoy geocaching, reading, volksmarching, gardening, crocheting for charity, lecturing, science fiction, learning, and teaching. My favorite colors are blue, green, and purple. I am judgmental, dyslexic, sweet, overweight, graying, short, generous, loving, supportive, and chronically early to meetings. I’m afraid of snakes, putting my head underwater, heights, depths, and failure.
