“The Smile Project” is about focusing on the happy things in life and making the effort to record and remember them. By the end of this project, I hope to have a huge list of things that made me smile at some point in life. You can join as well. 🙂
My Bouquet of Smiles for Today:
1) The Winter Wonderland Window:
I was in the mall today and I spotted a unique store which had a Winter Wonderland in a window. The store was called Bach and Beyond (not sure what that is supposed to mean). It had a few houses in the middle and lots of activities. The characters were skiing, skating, lying down in the snow etc . They were actually moving you know. It felt…..nice and weird. “When was Winter that much fun?,” I wondered. But everything really made me smile especially the girl who was lying down in the snow and just moving her arms and legs on the snow in a playful way. I know I can do at least that much if not any Winter sports :D. It would be so nice to live in a small town with everything nearby. For the first time, the idea of Winter felt like so much fun. I have to visit it again sometime. It was the most wonderful thing ever.
2) The Chores:
Since it’s expected to be much colder next week, I decided to get my groceries today so that I won’t have to go out in the cold unless necessary. Also got enough quarters to last me 4 months of laundry lol. January and February are usually very very cold so it’s better to be over-prepared for everything. Just happy to have gotten these things out of that way! 😀
3) The Free Shelf:
My building manager had put out a shelf that she no longer needed. I asked her if she was giving it away and she said yes! So I took it and now my magazines and books have a proper home lol.
4) The Visit to Santa:
I have been to the mall twice in hopes of getting the courage to meet Santa LOL! But every time I go there, I push myself into a store to avoid it. So today I decided to stop being stupid and go see him. I mean he only comes by like once a year, right? Might as well say Hi! lol I met Santa a few years ago for the first time. He was really nice so I decided I would visit him every year but I didn’t :P. The Santa I saw today didn’t ask me any questions so I asked him questions instead. Wish he had seen the child in me but oh well. I am happy to have overcome my reluctance and have crossed off my yearly “visit santa” task on my bucket list. With how hot it is in the mall, I am not sure how he wears so many clothes. I forgot to ask him about that LOL! Make lots of kids happy this year, Santa! See you next year! 🙂
Today was lovely. I took a day off to catch up on my sleep and just relax. I wanted to curl my hair but I didn’t get a chance to. Will do that tomorrow. It is nice to just take life slowly sometimes and just relax. I can’t wait to fall asleep again. I am already yawning. ☃ Here’s my pik of the day.
❄ Thanks a lot for reading. 🙂 ❄
Have an awesome day/night ahead,
Wanna join me?
