Hi all! This was an odd week with a lot to smile about, but very little that stands out. So, yes, it will be a “it’s the small things that matter” post ;)
Although there was some rain and such, the last week had pretty close to perfect weather. The days were warm, borderline hot, but the nights cool, almost cold. Because of the cool nights, I was able to manipulate the windows and keep the house down right chilly all day.
I spent a huge amount of time outside and was able to get some great runs in, as well as many walks, both with and without dogs. Twice I saw deer as I walked. One of the times I was by a pond and watched a deer on the other side getting a drink.
Thinking of deer, as I was driving early Saturday, just coming out my small town onto a major road, a tiny fawn stepped into the road. I slowed almost to a stop, scaring it. It ran up to where the momma deer was eating, ran in a few circles like it was playing and came close to the road again to watch me drive by. Hope momma deer took the little one far away from the busy road (it was not busy when I drove by!). They were gone 30 minutes later, so I figure she did.
Oh, I got a hair cut. Here is before:
And here is after:
As always, quite the difference.
And, of course, there was more to smile about, but that is enough for one post :)
So that is my smile for the week, the little things, like good weather, comfortable houses, wildlife and haircuts :)
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.
