Fortunately I had a memorable experience writing a Fortunately/Unfortunately book in elementary school so I’m bringing a new chapter to you today:
Unfortunately it was raining all morning and we had wanted to take the 5 minute walk “downtown” to Vasco, Fanore’s coffee shop. Fanore has one coffee shop, one little store, and one pub.
Fortunately it cleared up so we were on our way down the narrow road (this time trekking the opposite way from the beach).
Unfortunately Vasco was closed. For the winter. Oops. I guess it will open later on in March so we’ll have to try again. Poor Isaiah was longing for his first sip of coffee since arriving in Ireland.
Fortunately we stopped in at the little store and chatted it up with the nice worker (owner?). The store is small but well stocked with a decent variety of groceries and necessities. Even a bookshelf of movie rentals.
And Isaiah got his coffee. Oh happy day.
Unfortunately we forgot to turn on the range hood while cooking on the stove so set the smoke detector off. (Why does it seem like we’re always setting off smoke detectors??)
Fortunately we opened a window, flipped on the hood and enjoyed a great non-burned meal. And then watched Braveheart. It was my first time seeing it and yep, I cried like a wee one.
Ups and downs and all – it was a great day.
