Winter is finally over! The sun is shining, the flowers are starting to bloom—in short, spring has arrived in the Northern Hemisphere.
With a change in season often comes a lift in mood. Today’s topic of discussion is simple yet essential: what has made you smile recently?
Share something with us that has lifted your spirits and turned that frown upside down. There’s no contest or sale to announce in this post; this is all about making each other feel good by sharing the things that make us happy to be alive!
Normally we have to squirrels in the garden:
Two black ones.
These are always using the same way along the fence posts in front of
my “private bureau”.
Last week a red brown one showed up,

Getting my new phone. May not seem a lot to some, but to me it’s a big deal… I spend months looking around, reading specs/reviews to see which one I’d go for for the next couple of years.
Fingers crossed for another health assessment in a week or so. Again a civil servant will decide how disabled I am, and what struggles I face… the assessment itself is with an ex nurse (never specialist in my conditions) but it is a civil servant who makes the actual decision.
I had the biggest smile on my face yesterday as I got to hang out in the yard as my kids and all the neighbor kids played since it was 1) warm enough, 2) not storming, and 3) 0 MPH winds. I was in flip flops, shorts, and a shirt. Twas a marvelous evening. Now we’re back down to the 40s and it’s raining all day. At least I got a reprieve for a few hours! LOL!
Oh…and this had me cracking up. My girls (the ones in the pink) and one of the neighbors came up with a cheer last night called G.A.S. Below is the link if you’re curious about their G.A.S. cheer.
Ah! I just figured it was a preference in the spelling. LOL! Now I feel a bit less intelligent. Thanks for the clarification. I think some opossums are pretty adorable, but not compared to the possum. I was thinking it was a bush baby or something.
