Six year old Ondine painting eggplants with olive oil put a big smile on my face.

This week's A Prairie Home Companion. I was listening to it while I was out doing the shopping. It was one of their Joke Shows. I have not laughed that hard in a long time. If you can find the rebroadcast online sit back and enjoy!!

I know the feeling exactly. Garrison Keillor has been my absolute favourite. Just thinking of him makes me smile.

Copy this and paste it in your status if you know someone, or have heard of someone who knows someone. If you don't know anyone, or even if you've heard of someone who doesn't know anyone, then do still copy this. It's important to spread the message. Oh and the hearts ♥ ♥ ♥ ...Please, Please I beg of you, don't forget the hearts! ♥ ♥ ♥

LOL!

BTW...ZFranca...I want to be where you are at!! Looks lovely there.

Last December a dear friend lost her two year battle with cancer. She was very beloved in her community. I had the honour of catering her oldest son's wedding just 6 months before she passed away. Last night her son and his wife welcomed a little boy into the world. This child is going to be a real boost to two families who have gone through so much. I am smiling now but will be doing even more when I finally get to hold him!

Friday night we were invited to meet a friend's new puppy. Oh, I was already suffering from puppy lust anyway! It didn't help that when we all sat down, little puppy girl immediately came to me. Most doggies I've known are immediately attracted to the person in the room who does NOT like doggies, and there was one. Instead she jumped right on me and started to play. Oh! We keep telling ourselves, we want at least one pet-free vacation this summer, then we'll start looking.

My new puppy made me smile today. :) He always does. It was actually quite mild out so I could take him out for a walk without him freezing. (he is a 12 week old, 2 lb chihuahua puppy... tiny tiny and gets cold quickly!!!) Anyway, he walked so well on the leash and was such a good boy. Made me happy.

We've got puppy school tonight.... and i imagine i'll do a lot of smiling then too!! :)
