Something to Smile About

SmileDo you always NEED something to smile about or does a smile come naturally, just happen without a great deal of thought or reason behind it? Perhaps you wake up in the morning and smile even before your feet hit the floor. Ever ask yourself “Why?”

When someone smiles at you, how does it make you feel? Flirtatious? Warm? Do you wonder why that person is smiling? All kinds of thoughts can possibly fleet through your mind often depending on your mood at the time. If a smile is taken for the right intent, it can surely make a cloudy day full of sunshine.

The beauty of a smile: blazes, amazes, teases, pleases, warms, never harms, satisfies, gratifies, an ever burning flame of love, hope, desire! That’s something to smile about!

Awakenings: Awkward Moments

See on Scoop.itAwakenings: America & Beyond

Have you ever found yourself in a totally awkward, meaning AWKWARD!, moment—that moment when ‘you wished you could wish‘ yourself back in time?  Wiggle your nose and vanish to a new location, new place in time? Blink your eyes and the entire event simply disappear in a flash? Such moments happen all the time usually when completely unexpected to some folks, of course, more than others.

Today you get to celebrate all of those moments you once wished at the time the ground would simply open up and swallow them to oblivion. Why? Because…

Today is…National Awkward Moments Day

Sharla Shults‘s insight:
Dare to share? There IS a comment section! What is your most awkward moment?

For me, it has to be when I was still a classroom teacher. It was on a day, of course, when the Assistant Principal entered my room for an unannounced observation. He quietly took a seat and almost fell out of the chair when I calmly instructed the students to take out their ‘workshits!’ OOPS! I meant to say worksheets! AW-w-w-wKWARD!

Pet Pamperings

Today is…

Love Your Pet Day!
pawPrints
My name is Foxie. Do you have a treat for me?
Did you know that most households in the United States have at least
one pet? Approximately 39% of US households own at least one dog and
33% own at least one cat. Pets provide wonderful companionship and can
actually help decrease blood pressure and stress.

A little more to the right pur-r-r-r-r-eaze!

Today is the official day for pampering your pet with a little extra love and affection to show him or her just how much you care. Give your pet a favorite treat (maybe even 2, 3, more…), provide conversation with music in the background, buy your furry friend a new outfit (dogs, yes, cats, um-m-m-m?), groom away the tangled fur with extra attention around the ears, treat the ‘little’ guy or gal like a celebrity!

Thank you for my fur-tastic bed!

So whether you have a cat, dog, hamster, rabbit, bird, reptile, or goldfish, or any combination shower them all with love and affection today! Just curl up next to one (or more if you did not stop with only one) and make this an arf-fully, purr-fectly wonderful day.

How can it get any better than this?
 
Smile! Happy Love Your Pet
Day!

Keep it down, will ya’.

Isn’t it time for my brushing?

Do you put pork on your fork?

This morning Awakenings, catnipoflife‘s sister site, features a post about New Year’s traditions related to meal time, Put Pork on Your Fork. It seems pork is the traditional meat for various reasons, outbidding chicken and turkey, on this first day of the New Year. I really have a problem with the pork-eating business. Sure it tastes good and what better flavor is there anywhere other than bacon? It’s not the taste. Not even the fact it is a fatty, extremely fatty, meat. Then, why? You might ask. It is simply that the little piggies are just so darn cute! See for yourself…
