Hi! I hope you had a good week with plenty tyo smile about. This week my smile is something completely new and different – time at Cape Cod. Wait, I’ve done that before?.. ;) Oh well, perhaps part 2 will be a little different.
Late last week and over the weekend I did a long kayak paddle, taking photos of osprey. One had caught a needlefish that was almost 3 feet long (1 meter). I took a long walk on a beautiful, deserted beach. I took a long walk in the woods. I swam in the ocean. I did a lot of shorter walks. I talked to neighbors. It was good.
A couple of weeks ago I smiled because the painter had finished with my house on Cape Cod. Well, this week the builders finished rehabbing the barn. The put a new roof on, replaced the windows and put on cedar shingle siding. There was more to it than that, including a few small repairs to the house. But it came out looking great, which is one reason the neighbors are all taking to me ;)
I also had my hot water heater replaced. A frown that it broke (it was at least 25 years old), but a smile that I have hot water again. And I tested the stove and it works great, so I can cook.
My smile this week was about doing a lot of fun things on Cape Cod and having several large and small projects on my house come to an end.
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).
