I did have a lot to smile about this week, but it is so hard coming up with something. There are the normal, like kayaking. But that is boring, and my kayaking wasn’t epic ;) I do “all of the small things!” too often, so that is out. OK, I got it: The painter is finally done with my house on Cape Cod! Well, almost… There is still some touch-up. He also found a few rotted places that were beyond him, but luckily I have people in working on my barn, so they are doing that work. I think the painter might have to paint what they do when they are done, so… But, for the most part, the painting is done!
Here is a photo taken at sunset. In the left you can see part of the barn. If you look closely, it looks like barn has black and white trim – the black is the paper they are putting under the new siding the will put up. They also finished the roof and pretty much all of the trim on the barn. (Note – this is not a vacation house – I will eventually live here full time.)
Funny, more of my neighbors are stopping me as i walk the dog to ask about the work I am doing. I think some waited until they saw work being done to become friendly ;) OK, that is bad on my part – I think it is more like they now have an excuse to stop me and talk to me :) So I talked to several neighbors while I was down over the weekend.
That is my smile, a lot of progress on the exterior of my house on Cape Cod.
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).
