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
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

-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.
I complete level 1 of the 30-day shred (all 10 sessions). I am well on my way to being. shredded.
