Once again, @zord189 from the PowerHouseCreatives community (learn how to join HERE) has come up with a wicked awesomesauce contest idea! The criteria is very simple – “Write about 5 Things that make you smile, giggle, laugh.”
1 – My hubby & kids
These four people will forever be the source of my greatest joy and happiness (albeit while also being the source of my greatest angst and annoyance, in equal measure to how much I annoy them… 😂)
Here we all are in our early years together –
And a more recent shot –
2 – Family Get-togethers
Over the years, our big Cavanaugh clan gatherings have dwindled, but still any time any of us come together (like we did for my mother’s milestone birthday a few years ago), it is guaranteed to make me grin.
3 – Four-legged family members
Sid (short for Obsidian, who also answers to Sir Sidymus, Siddy-kinz, Mr. Drools..the list goes on) has the distinction of being the oldest of our furry family members – he adopted us way back in 2004!
In 2015, Sandy came to live with us…
And as of November 2018, we have another not-so-little guy here (and yes, I’m gonna do a post about him soon)…
How can you look at these little snugglebugs and not smile?
4 – Wandering with my camera
We totally won the tenant’s lottery back in 2012 when hubby found the house we’re currently renting. While we won’t be here much longer (long story, but the time has come to move on, once we can find a place to move to!), I plan to enjoy the hezmana out of it while I can. I mean, how could I not when the yard has gifted me such shots as this…
…as well as one of my all time favorite shots (which even adorns my morning coffee mug)…
5 – My Essential Tremor diagnosis
No, I’m not being sarcastic (well, probably not… maybe… LOL!). Seriously, with all the stressful and negative stuff that comes from having a whole bunch of lovely things going wrong in my body, there are still many things about it that give me a chuckle. Like, how any time I refer to my ET, I hear hubby’s voice (either in my head or in person) intoning, “ET… phone… home….”
And how I can now call myself a Mover & Shaker and no one can argue! If you need proof, check out this video (actual footage 😉) of me this morning…
Happy smiling, everyone! 😊
