Although the last two days have been cold and wet, spring is here! Over the weekend I spent as much time outside as I could. I raked the yard for a few hours. I went running in just running shorts and a t-shirt, no sweats. I took the dogs for long walks and played with them in the back yard. And on and on. When i was inside I did a lot of spring cleaning type stuff like putting the humidifiers away. And guess what? I saw my first flower of spring, a crocus. Sorry the picture is a little out of focus – I had the phone just a few inches from it – my phone does great panoramas but is awful for closeups.
This was a relatively mild winter. On problem with having a mild winter is those teaser days. You know the type, having short sleeve weather in the middle of February. We actually had some flowers in January. It makes me long for spring. And now it is here.
I know it’s not a super inspirational smile, but it’s a big smile for me. Perhaps next week will be better. But remember, the whole idea is to look around you and see those things that make you smile, to help you appreciate the good things.
f you haven’t seen it, here is a little background to The Weekly Smile as well as some quick guidelines.
So, what made you smile this week? Write about it and post on the linky (or click the little blue frog below). While you’re there, read what everyone else is smiling about! And come back to it later, if last week is any indication new smiles will be added daily!
