The Weekly Smile for the 2nd of May, 2022 #weeklysmile

Hi All! Last week was pretty good and I had plenty to smile about. My sister and brother in law came out to visit Cape Cod from Ohio. They didn’t stay with me but at a time share. I think they arrived on Sunday and left Friday.

I drove down to my place on Monday evening. I had to work on Tuesday, but my sister and her husband stopped by at around 5. It was the first time they had seen my new house, so that was nice. Besides Tuesday evening, I spent most of the day on Wednesday and Thursday with them. We had three dinners and two lunches out together. We walked around my neighborhood, my favorite woods walk around here, explored Chatham and Hyannis. Being in Hayannis we went to the JFK “museum”. It was OK, but I would suggest buying a very nice coffee table book about his life since all it was was photos and text… We also drove out to Falmouth to see the Nobska lighthouse. It was the first time I had ever been there. I wrote more details on my coffee share,but here is a photo (phone photo).

It was a nice visit. I don’t have family come out this direction often so…

That was my smile for the week, having my sister visit me on Cape Cod.

What made you smile?

****

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 weekly post as I used to – Sorry, I do not have time.

      There is something about lighthouses that I really like. I prefer the tall, thin ones, but this is still beautiful in its way.
      The visit from my sister was great. I am sure you enjoyed the visit from your daughter and seeing your grandchildren :) I’ll be by in a few minutes.

    Great you could spend some time with your sister! It seems the older sibs get, the more effort they put into it when being able to be together with family – the close up of the Wisteria is my smile this week – I love their shape and color, and the way they hang from their branches:)

      It was great to see my sister. I’m not able to spend as much time with my family as I might like, so take every opportunity that I can get :)
      I’ll be by in a little bit.

    Sounds like a very great visit with many meals to chat and enjoy company
    And your phone photo of the lighthouse has a great centering and up view
    Very nice

      It does seem that visits often revolve around meals, and this was no different, which was one reason I pointed it out. And, yes, good food, good company and good conversation.
      I took a couple of close ups of the light, and then did a short walk to take in the view. When I turned back, it was the perfect view…
      Thanks

        My mother and I were just chatting and she noted how she doesn’t like dining out anymore (we do really either – too many bad industrial oils being used and things like that) ur she said she went on Sunday after church because it was all about the fellowship! Yes – the fellowship and so I see why you told us about those meals together
        And liked your point about getting a coffee table book for the jfk experience

          Eating out is not the most healthy way to go, but there is something about it…. There were no artifacts at the JFK museum, just photos, text and video clips. It wasn’t bad, just not what I was expecting.

    Awww, man, that’s a great smile! I don’t have family come this way often either, am working on getting my sister to come north for a visit. Having family see your new place, and to get to explore together and share what you love about Cape Cod is pretty wonderful.

      Yes, visitors do make a good excuse to go a little farther, or check out those places reserved for, “that’s so close, I need to…”
