Hi all! Yes, I am on time this week, after missing it and posting on Tuesday last week. Overall, despite being super busy, this was a good week with plenty of smiles.
After a bout of very warm weather, we had a very typical October weekend. It was cool but very sunny. At last I got to see those October Blue Skies I love so much! The color of the sky on a brisk yet sunny October day is a color not seen any other time of the year – I can spend all day just watching it.
There is a field near my house and it seems that every bird of prey in the county stopped by to fly over it this weekend. OK, I saw the eagle near the field, not over it, but several species of hawks were out there, as well as a falcon and, of course, the ever present vultures. The ravens seemed to think they owned the place and there were a few scuffles between them and some of the smaller hawks. At one point a raven sat in a tree above my head and made the cutest cooing noises imaginable. A murder of crows made quick appearances, but seemed to leave the field to the larger birds.
My other big smile was finishing a major music project. You can see my post about it here, or go directly to the video here. It was a fun project, and it is always both exciting and depressing to see a project like this come to an end.
So those are my two biggest smiles for the week, enjoying the seasonable October weather over the weekend and finishing my music project.
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.
