Hi All! Some of you may have noticed that I am not really back from my blogging break. I have still not caught up on my life after being away for a couple of weeks! Work is still backed up. And then there were other things that kept me from it, but some of those busy things are busy with a smile…
My niece and nephew from northern Maine have been visiting us at our Cape Cod house for the last few years, minus 2020 (covid restrictions). Even though we had just returned from Scotland, last week was the week for their visit. I was super busy and could not get any time off work, but did go down there for a few days (I can telework from that house).
It was nice to see them again. They are 13 and 16, but mature for their ages and pleasant company. I didn’t do a whole lot with them, but it was still nice. On my own on Cape Cod, I did a short (1 hour) paddle on the kayak and then spent an hour on the beach after they left to go home. Nice.
After spending 10 days with my side of the family family, it is nice to spend time with my wife’s family :)
So that was my smile, spending some time on Cape Cod with family.
What made you smile?
A reminder – although you can still put up smile posts on your own, I will not be putting up smile posts for the next two weeks.
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.
