Welcome to the Winter Solstice edition of the weekly smile! And today is even more special since Jupiter and Saturn will be aligning in the sky! I took some photos of Jupiter a few weeks ago and was able to clearly see the 4 Galilean moon (see below). I hope to get some photos tonight as well!
We had a major snow storm on Thursday and some snow yesterday as well. One thing about the snow is that it is very pretty. The entire landscape is covered in a bright white. And the light at this time of year is special – there is a golden glow since the sun is so low in the sky. Shadows are very blue. In fact, I was looking out my window a few minutes ago, and thought how gorgeous it all was!
Yes, that photo is from just a few minutes ago! And yes, I live across the street from a library! Now there is a smile ;)
Despite the issues with driving and the shoveling, the beauty of the snow more than makes up for it :)
My smile this week is the beauty of the new-fallen snow.
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).
