Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

My brother-in-law will be deep frying a turkey tomorrow...and making some mean wings. Unhealthy I know, but it's only once a year. I'm not a meat eater at the moment, but that may change. I am not a vegetarian. But for right now I've been avoiding meat (well mainly animals that once had hooves or feet--I still devour fish and other seafood). But upon smelling the turkey with fixings, that may change. Plus he really does make some tasty wings. Tomorrow may find me back on the carnivore side of the food pyramid.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Smile....Someone May Need It

The old adage about smiling making someones day--there is one out there and I know if I try to quote it, it won't come out right--is true.

I was having a lousy day. I woke up on the wrong side of the bed. Didn't get enough sleep and woke up with a headache to top it all off. Needless to say, my morning didn't start off too well. Nothing happened at work--it was just another day (actually the part of the day that I do enjoy). But all day long I just didn't feel right. Have you ever had one of those days when your mood is left of center, but you can't pinpoint why? This was the day I was having.

After work, I stopped off at a grocery store and while I was searching a shelf for something needed, I heard a voice say "how you doing"? Without taking my eyes off the shelf (lest I lose my place and forget what brand/item I was looking for) I politely but not genuinely replied "fine, and you". The person replied "Can't complain...and why should I...just take the day as it comes and it will all be okay". I turned and look at this person, who was smiling while continuing the conversation. A nice genuine smile. Maybe they had to greet each customer as required by the job, but the smile was genuine. And for some reason, the smile made my day.

I would not be able to pick this person out of a crowd now. But their smile was contagious. After that minute interaction, I was alright. The headache gone and I felt like smiling for the rest of the day. Still smiling now as I write this post.

Have a good night everyone.

Where Are My Blog Links

Been extremely busy lately, but I stopped by my much neglected blog today so that I visit the blogs I usually follow and the links were missing. I hope that this is a glitch just for today, otherwise I'm screwed. I remember some of the www's that I follow, but not all of them. I don't ever really remember the site that I used to include these links.

Argh...and just when I thought I had some time to relax and catch up....
