The Weekly Smile for the 19th of April, 2021 #weeklysmile

This last week was a bit strange. Not a lot happened, good or bad. i stayed very busy and just did normal things.

For the most part.

However, I did go get my first vaccine shot. It was quite the adventure, because of driving in the snow (!). Yes, snow in mid April! But I got it done, so half way there. You can read more about the driving adventure (snow, slush, etc.) on my coffee share post.

That was my smile for the week, getting my first vaccine shot.

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).

      Glad you can join, though I may toss you into this week’s group instead of last week’s.

      I received the moderna shot. I had a little soreness in my arm for a couple of days, but not bad. I have heard that it is the second shot that has the most side effects, so am prepared…

        Ah Moderna! Yes it will be interesting to hear if the side effects cumulate on the subsequent shot. We do not have Moderna here at all, so must not have invested in it. Only Pfizer for front line workers and the bare minimum available, and Astro Zeneca for everyone else, although now only for over 60’s since the clotting deaths.

          lol, yes, the snow is often little more than an inconvenience. If there is a huge amount it can shut everything down, but a spring snow always melts pretty fast and so usually not a big deal (except psychologically – it’s spring! No snow!)

      It was in the 70s just a few days before the snow storm, and is back up to 70 tomorrow. Just odd weather… Though not warm enough for ice cream outside here, at least for me!

          Not really. i do think more people will rely on Internet/online services more than before, since we are now used to it. More people will telecommute. Masks in public in the US will not be as unusual as it was (After SARs in Asia, wearing masks in public was not unusual). Beyond that, I’m not sure.

              Possibly, particularly looking at a global scale – the US will bounce back pretty quick, as will most of Western Europe, but a lot of places won’t. However, I hope the US and Western Europe use this little interruption as a time to make positive changes!
