    Default Things that cheered you up/made you smile....

    Thought it would be fun to share any happy things going on right now.

    Our local fire department is showing up to sing happy birthday (from 6 feet away of course) to any kids who are celebrating and (obviously) can't have a party. They're bringing the big engine with lights and everything! A parent just has to reach out and let them know. And they're doing it for kids of all ages! I love those guys!

    Love this!

    We walk our dog twice a day. Even though I know people live in the houses around me, I'm now actually seeing them outside when we're walking. Everyone is friendly and in good cheer, despite the current situation. I told a friend of mine, it's like I'm walking through a neighborhood from the 60s.

    Those are both great!

    I'll add the people who make eye contact and smile at the grocery store. Everyone is so stressed right now. I can't tell you how good it makes me feel to just exchange a smile with someone.

    Today is my 12th shift in a row. I came to Intercot to read the positive quote of the day to keep me going.

    Do people not normally do this on a daily basis where you live?

    I just found out about this website that has all sorts of nature webcams to watch. It is explore.org. I was watching some elephants and pretending that I was on Kilimanjaro Safaris.

    My dog has found a cardboard box. He gets such joy of tearing around the yard with it in his mouth - he thinks he’s getting away with something. Cracks me up! 😆

    Yes, but I'm not seeing it as much lately. People are stressed and distracted. I'm still seeing it regularly in the small town we live in, but not as much outside it.

    Love that look of pure joy they get!

    DD15 and I did a 5-6 mile hike this morning. First time I've been able to get her out of the house in awhile! It was beautiful and quiet.

    That's ambitious. I love it! It's just too darn hot for me to do much more than a couple of miles right now. And by that, I mean down the sidewalks in my neighborhood.

    I've been seeing posts online where people jokingly claim that it turns out a lack of time ISN'T what was keeping them from getting things done.

    However, I did have the time to put in a ceiling fan today and I'm SO, SO glad. It's been on my to-do list for almost 4 years. I'm seriously happy to get it done and it puts a smile on my face each time I walk into that room.

    It's chilly here still, which helped! Also means no bugs. I let DD15 choose the paths and she asked me when we got home how far we went. I had to look at the map to figure it out. I was kind of surprised! I didn't realize we'd walked quite that far.

    This is making me smile - sort of. We're in the middle of DIY and DH had to take the door off the full bath out to the garage to sand the paint off of it. I swiped a curtain from a closet to hang over the door. Now we can't stop the cats from barging in on us. They look SO smug about it! LOL!

    That's awesome!

    Someone online posted a picture of a Charmin semi truck out for delivery. I'm thinking to myself, "That needs a police escort at this time."

    I just found out we can use our 3D printer to help print mask for the medical community. This makes me SUPER happy right now.

    I think you did win the lottery! I planted some seeds today too. We also have the windows open a little. It's still kinda chilly, but I don't care.

    This is the time of year for plant sales. I’ve just bought a bunch of tomatoes and other plants that I’ll be picking up from a nonprofit in a ‘deliver to your trunk’ on Saturday and I bought all my soil amendments from Home Depot and they delivered right to my driveway. So happy to be able to work in my yard!

    I buy Disney scented candles from Dearly Loved on Etsy. I worked 13 shifts in a row due to nurses calling off. I was exhausted and mentioned on Facebook how I would go home and relax by lighting my monorail resort smell candle. Two days later, a package from Dearly Loved was on my door with a new monorail resort scented candle and a note telling me to relax when I could.

    DH Macgyvered a fire pit with stuff we had in the backyard and we roasted marshmallows and made s'mores.
