The Weekly Smile

Well this week I had a lot to smile about…. I was on winter break from school!!

I started off the week going to a paint your own pottery place with a friend- a great thing to do on a rainy Monday. I think she did a great job.20170123_143137

Tuesday I had a mini reunion with two childhood friends. We have known each other since first grade, and went through school together right throughΒ high school. We met for coffee and had a great catch up for three hours. We keep up on Facebook, but filled each other in on the details. We reminisced and shared some funny memories and stories.Β adriennemadelinejan2017

Wednesday my husband and I drove down to the New Jersey shore- my very favorite place. It wasn’t too cold, considering it’s January- in the 50’s, but it was windy. We walked along the ocean and then a few miles on the boardwalk. We stopped for lunch and then as we were driving out of town passed a small museum and stopped there. It was a wonderful day and really made me feel like I was on vacation.


I started my days taking a walk, and visited some of my favorite local spots to take some photos. Lots of smiles to look back on and keep me smiling.

  1. Great to have childhood friends and being able to keep in touch!
    Thank you for your kind comment! Am still in awe about the snow, because it was 40 years ago I “lived” in it, and now I take photos I see so much beauty that I missed when young:)


  2. The friends, one who painted the pretty plate and your lifelong school friends brought me smiles. You are lucky to have this, some kids move and lose touch. I am happy for you, Lisa.
    The birds are always special and the red one was different and wondered what kind it is? Too small to be a cardinal . . . πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing!


    • The red bird is a house finch. They are common in our area. I reconnected with many childhood friends through facebook, many of us live close to one another so we try to meet now and then. It is always nice to see them. Thank you for always stopping by and connecting!


  3. This post gave us a big smile on our face, DM. It’s lovely to see your faces, they haven’t change at all, a little bit older, but quite the same as when you were young πŸ™‚ Granny loves the pottery paint. That’s some real artwork your furriend made and the birdies…I still can’t have them..can I…MOL πŸ˜€ Pawkisses for a wonderful Day πŸ™‚ ❀
