Hi all, sorry I’m a day late. It has been insane busy lately and yesterday was nonstop from the time I got up. Anyway, here I am, a day late and possibly a dollar short, but I guess better late than never ;)
We had a stretch of really warm weather last week. It’s seasonably cool now, but we have some more warm weather coming up. Unfortunately I was very busy last week and didn’t get out as much as I would have wished, but I did some, particularly over the weekend, and it was great!
Besides the typical runs, walks and dog walks, including a very long one through the woods with Fiyero, I want to bring a few things forward.
On Saturday our town’s “Community Center” (quotes because there is no physical center yet), had a street clean up. Our Lions Club met at a park just out of town and did a few roads around it. I was a little late, but I walked around the soccer fields and such, collecting trash, though it was pretty clean. After we were finished we stood around and talked. An eagle flew over.
As I was raking leaves, some neighbors came over and chatted. I do see them a bit, but rarely chat for long. I also had a very long chat with different friends and neighbors throughout town on several other occasions. Everyone was out enjoying the weather, and so much more social than usual. On top of that, my wife invited one of her best friends out for dinner, someone I haven’t seen in ages, so that was nice to catch up.
My smile this week was enjoying the warm weather and the seemingly higher level of socialization than usual mostly because of that weather.
What made you smile?
(A reminder – 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). Note – I am no longer compiling the Smiles into a Recap post. I’ll try to get the new smile out between 7 and 8:30 Eastern Time.
