[Dec 12] What made me smile today?

Date: Dec 12, 2014


“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’s Conclusion

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,

  1. Aww, what a cool project! One of the things that made me smile today was your thoughtful comment on my blog! 🙂

  2. What made me smile was spending time with someone.

  3. You are too too quick lol I still have to catch up on comments from yesterday haha. Yea, I am not sure what they sold as I didn’t go into the store. I thought it was a gift store guessing from the window coz I have seen Bath and beyond and it’s called the same here too (unless they changed the name recently). I had no idea about the snow angel. That makes it even more fun :). You should go if you wanna see Santa!! Or visit google’s Santa village lol 😀
    You have an awesome weekend too!!

  4. Sounds like you had a fun and relaxing day off! Bach and Beyond (I think) is the same as Bath and Beyond here. They sell nice smelling lotions and soaps, etc. They have very nice things! The little girl laying down in the snow and moving her arms and legs; I think she is suppose to be making a “snow angel.” When you do this and get up, it looks like an angel in the snow. You have more nerve than me if you went to visit Santa! LOL! Enjoy your sleep and have a wonderful and happy weekend!

Leave a few smiles!
