Hi all! Happy New Year! I know, 2020 was not a very good year. In fact, it was awful. But we did see a lot of good smiles, despite it all :) Well, with 2021 just starting, I expect to see even more smiles.
If you have been reading my blog for a while, you might know that I spend a lot of time on Cape Cod. In fact, I have a house down there. Well, I haven’t been since mid-November. That is, until now. I drove down last Monday and spent New Year down there. I returned to New Hampshire Saturday evening.
It was a good visit. It was great to get away, even if it was “going home”. I really didn’t do a lot. I walked in the woods, walked on two beaches, walked the dogs down to the two landings, ran (which goes by one of the beaches), and just did more normal things. That being said, it was very relaxing. I love being by the water. It was a good way to see in the new year, particularly this year.
That was my smile for the week, and the first smile for the year, several days down on Cape Cod just relaxing and living.
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).
