Things That Made Me Smile This Week

I woke up last Monday thinking it was Sunday. I had a big smile on my face and was really looking forward to a day of no obligations, plenty of loafing, and pancakes. Then I realized it was actually Monday, and that we received an additional two inches of snow overnight, and I was pissed. It was a stressful week and there's still plenty to do, but there were a few things that made me smile, including:

- I met some new people who made me laugh
- I was able to catch up with a good friend over cocktails, cupcakes and tasty canapes
- I walked into a meeting, upon which everyone smiled
- People asked me for my card before I asked them (I take that as a sign they actually want to stay in touch)
- I made great progress on pottery projects
- I ate Indian cuisine twice this week for lunch
- I showed my cocktail prowess and taught a bartender a few slick moves
- I had a pretty good fashion/wardrobe week, and I think I must have lost a pound or two because a skirt that was a bit tight a few weeks ago fit perfectly (stress can be a good thing sometimes!)
- A friend mentioned someone he knew who would love to meet me (nice to know you are thought of positively by strangers!)
- I learned a new trick that Eric thinks is hilarious (and baby laughs are the best!)
- I was able to exchange Monty Python quotes at will and not be publicly shunned for it

The stuff life is made of, my friends. What made you smile this week? I'd love to hear!

Hi Deanna, thanks so much for stopping by my blog and leaving such a nice comment! I'm always looking for hand-made products that are functional and pretty! Loved your list of all those things that went well for you last week - it really is the little things that add up! Ciao, bella!

Kari, that seems to be the conundrum - knitters can't crochet, and vice-versa. I've only met one or two people in my life who can do both successfully. We'll just have to swap goodies!
