I was up early this morning as was checking the forum just as TaleSpinner posted today's question.  I looked for something like this but failed miserably.  Good to be in the company of like minds.

Oct 18:  The world is too negative lately; post something positive to make us smile today.

 

Lady Klarg just got back a very positive set of responses on the first round of her Tenure review. Here's hoping things stay positive through the end of the process in May! (She got the letter late yesterday afternoon.)

The sun is shining, and I'm in beautiful countryside.

Both the wife and I are in robust health.

... and I can smell home-made bacon cooking!

Warehouse finally got their new forklift in, and they're happy about that for some reason...

I just decided to take an extra 1/2 day off today, starting right now.  As a result extra painting/sculpting may happen!  WOOT!

Oct 17:  What parts of these forums do you check/read/contribute to daily?

Definitely spend the most time in the randomness threads. Check and read everyday, post most days.

Well, one new thing that's a positive (for me) is...

I have tea and sugar and cream. I started painting Bombshell's Morihalda bust, but I'm calling her MiniMori for now. She is going to have an autumn theme. My Cards Against Humanity recent booster pack arrived and it came with stickers!! Hmm.... 

 

I caught a Blissey in Pokemon Go. Yeah that's right, just a Blissey out in the wild. Heck yeah. 

 

My leftover soup is yummy. Pureed a monster zucchini and an onion with chicken brother, sauteed mushrooms and chicken and mild peppers and carrots and garlic. Mixed those two bits, and more chicken broth. Added more bell pepper. Cooked rice separate, added that. Savory and pepper and thyme added for herbs. It is yummy, even though I forgot to toss in the peas. 

 

edit: should I take pictures of rocks for you guys? Cuz... that makes ME smile at least.

Don't dwell on the negative stuff. It's always there to one degree or another. Don't listen to biased news sources and get off facebook.

 

There is as much wonder and beauty in the world as there ever has been, and there is a great deal of interest in convincing you there isn't. I don't have to post something to make you smile, your life is full to bursting with it. If you look.

I was going to post this in the Acquisition thread...I think I still will. 

Cap'n John & I were off to distant Bee Cave principally to buy Damnit The Cat food for body & soul AND coffee for similar reasons.

While I was at WorldMarket, I spied a Little Critter that I knew was meant to be part of what passes for my life. Keeping in mind The Main Reason for the trip...

He's a puppet...Damnit was not impressed.

Sunsets, pizza and faerie nests. If one of these doesn't get you to crack a smile, I'm not sure what to do.
