I just returned from a long walk on a cold, windy beach. Nothing tells you that you are alive as much as the cutting sea-flavoured wind cutting at your cheeks. (Cheeks on my face, you of the dirty minds).
If you have been following my coffee shares you know that December has been more than busy. Work has been nonstop and stressful. There has been so much going on. So this week I am doing nothing, absolutely nothing.
I began my week off going out with friends. There have been other chats with other friends. And family – we’ve talked about the year, politics, the latest movies, deaths, etc. We have talked about life. I am very quiet, but it is nice to chat with loved ones.
I also did other things, like walks in the woods, walks on the beach, kayaking, walking the dogs, playing with the dogs, etc. (Photo below taken this morning on Mayflower beach in Dennis, MA on Cape Cod.
And then there was a lot of editing (I read my short story book out loud and made a ton of corrections). I wrote a 6000 word story yesterday, which I’ll post later. I did some other small scale writing.
And I’ve relaxed.
So today’s smile is relaxing after a very hard month.
What made you smile this week?
If 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 link-up (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!
Note – the weekly smile runs Wednesday Morning to Wednesday morning. I post in the morning (Eastern US) and put up the link usually between 7 and 8 AM EST. I also try to post on Sunday as a reminder. People can and do join throughout the week.
