This last week has been an odd week. I had a hair cut after letting it grow out for 6 months. I’ve had that as a smile before, but since I didn’t do before and after photos… We had a face-to-face Lions Club meeting, which was great but… I have really gotten back into my music, which is great, but there is little to show for it (yet). I just did a “it’s the small things” post. How about a nice, long walk in the woods without the dogs?
Typically around this time of year I would be doing major hikes, but I haven’t had a good day for it in a long time – there has to be a combination of the right weather and a big blank on my agenda. But I did get out for a long walk, which I stretched out into the local woods. It wasn’t too special and the colors are not here yet, but it was nice, and perhaps the longest walk I’ve had in New Hampshire since early spring, so it was nice. The weather wasn’t great (it had started to drizzle), but I still enjoyed it.
I enjoy getting out into nature and the autumn is by far my favorite time of year to be out. I haven’t had many real fall adventures yet. Again, looking for the right combination of weather and schedule. But even when the weather doesn’t cooperate, it is still great to breath in the nice fresh air and just walk.
So that is my smile for the week, making the most of mot so nice weather and enjoying nature.
What made you smile?
(Note – There will not be a Smile Recap post next week).
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).
