I love making kids smile by making goofy faces at them.

Babe, I am so happy for you! I have someone come in through Dad's Vetran's benefits. It really helps not to worry about the house so I can devote more time to Dad and DH....oh, and DC!!!

Met a company colleague in person today who turned out to be much nicer and more down-to-earth than the impression I got during a Live Meeting session a while back.

The fragrance that the gentle caressing of the delicate young sweet basil leaves stirred up into my nose, made me smile back.

I love the smell of basil. I brought my basil indoors at the first frost warning. Shrederik, my cat, didn't seem impressed. I smelled basil on his breath once, and he doesn't seem to have touched the plant since ;)
