Smiling today

The skys might be grey but the day was quite the opposite!
The plumber came first thing this morning, when I was thinking I was going to have to hang around all day waiting, and fixed some things plumbers fix.
I had a lovely positive conversation with a friend who lives in another city, hatching a plan for us both to be in the same place soon?
I enjoyed sitting by the beach, a calm and quiet place for a little contemplation when the sun goes away.

Swinging by the post office I got to collect a little smile package all the way from the UK.
Thanks Jacquie I really needed this reminder this week. Not because anything really bad happened I just had to deal with some difficult people who insist on being negative - which did nothing for my state of mind.

A gorgeous card with a beautiful greeting and a pretty little smile pincushion.
Lots of good stuff happening in my world too, need to make sure I let the good things stay in the foreground.

Now I'm ready for the weekend, well maybe after I finish some sewing?
I'm still knitting the same thing as last time so I guess you don't need to see that again yet.

Hope you have a reason (or two) to smile this weekend.

Warm heater, lots of projects to work on - plenty to smile about here.

those are lovely reasons to smile about.... sometimes other people's negativity can affect us... I had to do a bit of 'shrugging it off" too this week... sigh!!

Cute little pincushion...seriously over negative people, why can't they be miserable on their own time!...

How lovely of Jacquie to send you that sweet cushion.
