This-n-That Thursday

Things that made me smile before 7:45 this morning:
  • A 3+ mile walk along the shore with The Baby Bird.
  • An osprey nest with a baby in it.
  • The smell of fresh cut grass and salt air combined.
  • A goldfinch on the wing.
  • An awesome cup of coffee with almond milk.
  • All the blooming hydrangeas along our route.
  • Ditto for the beach roses.
  • Droplets off the trees from last night's rain.
  • The sun on the Long Island Sound.
  • Working up a sweat.
  • Steel cut oatmeal with cinnamon.
  • A beautiful full day stretching ahead.
Life is good. Happy Thursday my friends, what made you smile this morning?

I want to go on the next walk with you...but not the whole 3 miles!

Chesapeake Bay Woman said...

Sounds like a perfect and healthy way to start the day.

Not having to work and commute 100 miles today made me smile this morning. Made me smile last night too.

The vegetables in our garden growing like crazy!

Also, air conditioning, as the heat index today is expected to be 105. Again.

Making love with my lover and best friend of 36 years, a run on the beach, a swim in the Adriatic and the water is warm. Mine was a good day too. Thanks for the reminder to stop and appreciate.

I like all of your things - must try the almond milk. The sound of the quail calling to each other each morning makes me smile. It reminds me that I'm back in my home town.

What impresses me most is that it's the simple things that make you smile. I'm the same way.
