Reasons to smile
I guess not everyone needs to find a reason, but... What made you smile and/or laugh today?
My first LOL of the day was caused by this LOLdog.
I went to the uniform laundry room at work yesterday, to ask if I could try on a size smaller in my trousers. And they fit! The laundry lady asked me if I needed a new shirt, too, so I tried the next size down in that, too. And it fit! Wow. My pants had been slipping down my hips a little for weeks, but last week they got ridiculously slippy. So happy to have confirmation that my body's changing shape/size a little. :iloveyou:
Humming along to the occasional good song at work... it's amazing how much it can lift my mood. ;)b
Overhearing customers' reactions when they can't decide whether flowers are real or not. It's hilarious either way - when they think fake are real, or real are fake. ;D
Sweet! So I was close. I first thought bubble wrap and then I thought bedsheets and THEN I thought I should think of something that actually makes, you know, sense.
Haha, I'm envisioning a bed wrapped in bubble wrap. Could be fun.
In case any of y'all teachers want the bubble sheets:
The gift-quilt is finished!!!
tomorrow all I have to do is get a mailer and put the label on it. And it looks a LOT better now it's bound than just the top did when I started quilting it.
Nature is making me smile.
It's 23.00 now and looking out my livingroom window,
out on my fjord, the sun is sooooo beautiful.
Yellow, red and bright pink!
there is a turtle laying eggs on the beach in front of my house! :)
That's cool! Not nearly as exotic, but a nest of robins hatched right outside my kitchen window this week. That's been making me smile.
one of my (non-vegan) friends just showed up at my door with a bag of homemade vegan chocolate cookies :)>>> amazing.
Someone bought me flowers yesterday. :iloveyou: It wasn't a spontaneous thing... I guess I accidentally dropped a hint ;D... but it was sweet nonetheless. (Tulips, in case you're wondering.)
A successful Caturday shopping trip: I got market sourdough, pink lady apples, carrots, red cabbage... organic jasmine rice, tahini, sunflower oil, persimmons, bananas, kale, spaghetti squash, oh, and a vegan spicy peanut veggie pie for lunch.
Tulips in the garden,
tulips in the park.
But the tulips I saw
were kissing in the dark.
tom is going vegan for a month starting monday...

my love is so cute when he plays his video game. <3 x 100.
it's finally hometime :) Well, technically, sit-in-traffic-for-an-hour time, then gym-time, then hometime. But still, getting to leave work definitely gives me a reason to smile :)
black ginger peach tea, piping hot.
- playing Settlers of Catan with some awesomely funny folks lastnight, and then being able to walk a couple blocks to home under the stars

This little guy makes me smile
- Knowing that I've shinied up my CV, sent off some applications and have more in the pipeline. Progress is good.
- Graduating soon.
- The baked potato I intend to have for dinner.
-My haircut that I got a couple days ago is RAD!
-tonight I'm going to a Bachelorette-themed party (yes, I know, but it's a bunch of homos gathering to laugh at the show's ridiculousness, dress up and eat good food! sounds good to me!)
-it's good to get out of my comfort zone!!
parking space karma totally paid off last night when I had to drive into town. I normally hate it, but I thought positive thoughts, let people pull out in front of me, and a space freed up EXACTLY where I wanted one when I got there. Score.
--finally got the hair cut and the grey covered
--my new student is nice
--lots of old students soldiering on thru July.
