Raindrops on roses, and whiskers on kittens. . ..

Okay, okay.  My apologies to Julie Andrews!  Couldn’t resist.  🙂  But who wouldn’t smile at some of the things I’d experienced this week?

Like a kitty who insisted on helping with my WIP.

I’m telling you, this turning point isn’t going to work!  (Man, everybody’s a critic. . ..)

Then there’s the totally-new-to-me contraption I discovered when I attended a local RWA chapter meeting.  (Freakin’ awesome!  How did we ever get along without one of these?)

A drinking fountain that fills water bottles!

Or this when I got up for more coffee:

Did I miss breakfast?

But what brought the biggest smile to my face this past week?  I asked Hubby to fix my shoe, and when I woke up the next morning, I discovered this!

Eat your heart out, Cinderella!

Yeah, okay.  So life’s simple things do make me smile when I really pay attention.  Like the smell of coffee.  Or the sound of my husband’s snores when I wake up in the morning.  The friendly gesture of a stranger, or hanging out in the backyard on a warm summer day.  And, of course, a few moments to reflect on it all.

So.  What makes you smile?
