Feng shui

It was many years ago when I received a licence plate for my car with the number LJ-V4 44N. This was in 2002. When I saw it, I didn't really like it, but I didn't make any fuss, because it is not so easy to get the number with three equal numbers.This spring my neighbor gave me some feng shui literature when I complained that everything has been going wrong in my life since I have received the new house number. When I flipped through the pages, I was astonished to read that the three 4's bring bad luck (number four is believed to be unlucky number; lots of effort should be put in everything you do and even then you might not be successful). Alright, I am a bit superstitious, so having a chance to change the number at my next registration, I did exactly that. I am not sure that this number will bring me any luck, but I like it much more than the previous one. Looking back at my life, it wasn't really a happy one, since that day when I started to drive with the three fours on my licence plate.

It is amazing what we are able to do when we are despaired. I told you that I was a bit weird! :)

P.s.: The weather will be great next week, so I will be probably somewhere in the mountains, at least at the beginning of the week. Two days I will be there counting the birds. If the fortune wheel doesn't change direction by then, that is.

I have heard that 8 is a lucky number. Enjoy the good weather, Pina!

Enjoy the mountains. I have to bake a pie and make two other dishes tonight for a family picnic tomorrow. I still have not decided what to make. Have a wonderful weekend!
