Hi all. It was a strange week. Very wet. But there were pluses. One, of course was yesterday. Yeah, some of you may know of October 31 as Halloween or even Samhain, but I have a different word for it – Birthday. That is right, my birthday is October 31.
I had a pretty mellow day. I did eat out on Saturday to celebrate. I also had some gifts on Sunday. Oh, and there were yummy birthday cookies. But the big thing was the weatehr – it had been a wet, cold week. OK, Thursday was OK and Friday was pretty nice (both days cool), but the rest of the week was very wet and cold. Saturday was awful. And Sunday was mostly sunny and warmish (65 F/18 C). I spent a lot of time outside. Fiyero wanted a very long walk in the woods. OK, a jog, and he jumped in a pond to cool off! I did my long mountain run. And there were more normal walks. I also finished rerecording the music I posted a week or so ago, so that was nice. I talked top friends and family. All of those birthday things :)
So that was my smile for the week, a nice birthday spent the way I like, being outside and being creative with some family and friend time mixed in.
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.
