My smile came last night as DH were catching up on some TV and together time. We were sitting on the couch with Violet curled up between us and her head was on DH's lap. Joie was on the other side of me, chewing on a little scrap of toy (he loves them - right now it is the foot of a plush mouse) allowing me to hold and steady it for him.

It doesn't matter what the dynamics of your family are, this is really quality time.

Just to show how special this is, Joie is a sort of "rescue dog" and had a lot of issues when we got him 7 years ago. It has taken that long and all our love to get him to trust enough to lay beside us let alone hold onto his toy.

The city is about to start doing "rehabilitation" of the water mains on my street, starting today, until the 17th of September. I was afraid that I wasn't going to be able to park my car in our underground garage. I just went outside and talked to some construction guys and the guy who seems to be in charge said that the only thing we would have to deal with is a 4" diameter pipe that we will have to drive across. Phew!

I just read a text from my daughter telling me about their U-pick raspberry picking experience today. I had to SMILE when she wrote what my
2 1/2 Year old granddaughter kept saying to her

"like Nana showed me, the red ones".

Lol! She was here a few weeks ago and we had gone out to my little berry patch and I had shown her which berries to pick.....I'm so proud that she remembered!

Now that is something to smile about. Three of my grandkids were adopted when my daughter died. So they got to celebrate two birthdays.
