There is Always Something to Smile About

There is Always Something to Smile About.

It was REALLY hard getting up for work on Monday!

In our part of the world, we started Daylight Savings Time and lost an hour of sleep Sunday morning when we had to turn the clocks forward.

Since I didn’t have to wake up at any certain time on Sunday, it was not a problem.

But when the alarm went off at 5 am on Monday, I said, “What the whaaaat?!?!

I skipped my morning treadmill routine and went back to sleep until 6 am.

Still didn’t want to get up…. but I did.

The upside to this crazy ritual is that it now stays light later, and Charlie and I were able to walk outside after work.

When Charlie and I go for a walk, we almost always take the same route, so I make it a point to always try to see something new.

It was on our way back that I spied a smiley face painted on this old tree stump that has obviously been there a while.

This was the first time I saw it.

And I smiled.

There is always something to smile about!

Cheers & Hugs,

  1. We too suffer from the change into daylight saving time. It was once a war time measure to save electricity, but why now? But after a few day we all will enjoy the extra long evenings. Have a great day, Jodi!

  2. This tree stump appears quite similar to the one in my backyard that holds the sad melting remnants of Benjamin’s only Snowman built this year, “Mini”. Due to illness, both his and mine, we could not make use of the last two snowfalls, the best of this seasons and most likely the last. I love the smile on this one and Benjamin will too! “Smile, it is the key that fits the lock of everybody’s heart.” – Anthony D’Angelo. Thank-you x 2!!

    • I’m sorry to hear illness kept you and Benjamin from playing in the snow, but I know you surely comforted and cared for and loved each other inside and brought each other lots of smiles. Love to you both! โค โค


  3. So cute! There is a stump on one of our hiking trails that is low and perfectly heart shaped. We started calling it the Heart Stump park. It’s fun to go there and see if we can find it each time ๐Ÿ™Œ


I love hearing from you - hope you'll drop me a line
