Hello! It has been an odd week. After all of the excitement of the holiday season, after all of the excitement of the snowy owl, after the joy of getting my new ‘fridge (last week’s smile), after all of the great food, the family, the friends, etc., this week was almost a let down. OK, I’ll be fair, it was a return to normal. I had to put in a full week of work, I had to shovel snow, I had a lot of chores to do, etc. Normal.
I wasn’t frowning, but after the last few weeks, what stood out to make me smile?
If all else fails, there are kittens! Kittens are always worth a smile :)
Tiberius is about 7 months old, maybe 8. He is super playful and super cute. This week he has been even more active than usual. He played with anything and everything. Just a constant fur ball of energy. Alexander, who is maybe 17 months old and still a bit playful though says he is now a dignified “cat”, is worn done by the little guy, who then goes and forces Grace to play, plays with both dogs, with the humans and then by himself.
OK, so he did stop on occasion and he has a few places where he likes to lie down, including the huge dog bed on the floor of my make-shift office. The funny thing is that the big dogs will often come in and lie down with him. It doesn’t bother him at all, and he just curls up closer to their warmth. What is strange is that in the past the dogs would avoid the room when there were cats or kittens in here. OK, they might sleep in the bed when Albert was in the room, but if Albert wanted the bed, he had it to himself (most of the time).
I think little Tiberius ha endeared himself to all of the animals in the house, two legged and four legged. He does force himself on you ;) He is also cute.
So that is my smile, having a cute kitten “terrorizing” the house and all of the occupants.
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.
