Hi! It was a strange week. Well, it was strange in how mundane it was ;) I did go to the dentist, which I am not going to call a smile! Beyond that, I didn’t do a lot or go anywhere. Hmmm.
I did spend a huge amount of time outside over the weekend, particularly on Saturday. Nothing special, but sitting outside, reading outside, eating outside, talking to neighbors outside (having a little neighbor girl follow me around on a few walks, walking the dogs (most walks were without the dogs since it was too hot for them), chasing dogs through the woods behind my house, mowing the lawn, running (yes, in the heat), and just hanging out in general. It reminded me of when I was a kid and pretty much was only inside to sleep all summer. As an adult there is too much happening inside. There is the computer, waiting like a spider in its web, trying to trap me. But I escaped and made it outside!
I also downloaded about 5 months of photos from my camera to my computer. I didn’t take much time to go through the almost 1000 photos, but I did grab this, which I thought it was cute – a hard day at the office for momma osprey only to come home to the crying children:
So that was my smile for the week, being outside all day on Saturday and looking at this photo.
What made you smile?
Come on, I’m sure you smiled at least once last week. Why don’t you share it? I hope you can join in!
Here is list of “rules” and guiding ideas. If you don’t have time to read it right now, just remember that this is an exercise to spread positivity. Don’t smile about the misfortune of others. Don’t smile in a way to excludes others. Make sure a 12 year old can read it.
To join in, write a post to share your smile and then leave a comment on this post with a link to your smile. Or, if you prefer, do a pingback to this post (pingback = have a link from your post to this one) (Note – pingbacks have been very inconsistent – please leave a comment :) ). You can post any time until next Sunday evening (to be simple, I will say midnight GMT, which is 7 PM Sunday for me). Next week I will compile all of the Smiles and do a separate post of them on Monday morning just before the smile. (I will shoot for around 7 AM EST).
