1. It was 59* and teenagers were wearing tank tops, shorts and flip-flops. The next day it was 70* and they were dressed for winter. Now today, it is back in the 50's again. We are on the proverbial weather yo-yo again.
2. I saw someone jogging off in the distance and as she came closer, I saw that it was a "little person". I have never seen a little person jogging, before and I would have thought it was a painful process for them, seeing as how their legs are badly bowed. But she was persevering (if at a snail's pace), and I was proud for her.
3. While stopped at a train crossing, I saw a series of five linked railroad cars with a tractor on top that had a large claw on the end of a long "nose." They were moving slowly, about 20 feet each time and stopping, after which the claw reached into a cargo car and pulled out 8-10 massive railroad ties and dropped them on the side of the tracks like they were "pick-up-sticks." I thought back to when men most likely had to do that by hand, or use horse-drawn carts to transport the heavy railroad ties and I decided this way was much better!
Working as a florist on Valentine's Day in a busy shop can be extremely stressful, even when you only work four hours a day (as I did.) One of the ways in which I amuse myself is reading the cards that people specify for their orders. One I got a kick out of was..."I fooled you because these are not for Valentine's Day, they are because I forgot our seven-month anniversary." I wondered if he had sent another arrangement for the 14th, because he is likely to be in trouble if he didn't....lol. Another one was ordered for her mom by a young girl...."I ordered these for Dad; he taught me how to use the credit card."
Again, I wondered if the mom would be happy at that - or mad because the dad didn't do it himself. We'll never know, will we?
