A few hours later, the mailman came by and I was suprised by this sweet card from Alvin! It definitely put a smile on my face and made the cloudy day feel much brighter. Then, soon after I got this card, the sun actually DID come out! It felt like Alvin sent me the sunshine :)
So, I opened up the windows and let the fresh air flow through the house while I worked the rest of the afternoon. My Monday was definitely getting better!
After work, I decided to take Baxter over to the Chantilly "dog park" so that we could both enjoy the sunshine. There is a big creek that runs across one side of the park, and it typically overflows with a big rain storm. It looked like it had overflowed the night before, because there was a bunch of branches, sand, etc. on the banks of the creek. In all the mess, I came across two pieces of driftwood - free home decor! Another fun surprise for my Monday!!!
