make me smile

I'm super busy for the next few days. I'll be back blogging again by the middle of the first week in September. Until then, I have a boon to ask.

Please make me smile.

I'm having trouble doing it on my own just now, but I have faith in you wonderful blog people. If you have a joke, tell it. If you saw a funny (and perhaps yarn related) video, please link to it. Online comics like Cat and Girl; tell me more. What makes you smile? Chances are it will make smile too.

Omigoodness, and this artist. Took a little bit to track him down again.

Or just watch the full flickr slideshow, they are amazing and slightly twisted. :)

A friend of mine from Montreal came to a nearby town last weekend for a mini-vacation with her daughter. I met them there on Sunday, and took them to visit a lavender field (http://bleulavande.ca/). When I dropped them back at the B&B where they were staying, my friend (who's planning another getaway there with her son in a couple of weeks) put something in my hands, saying she was lending it to me to ensure that she'd see me again next month.
When I opened the bag and I saw the gorgeous (and tiny!) Golding spindle - which I knew she had bought as a special treat to herself for her birthday - I was shocked... and really grateful! I wasn't expecting to be given the gift of spending some time with that very special spindle! That was very thoughtful of her.
As a bonus, this has brought me back into spinning, as I hadn't done any since the move. And as I only have this spindle for a limited time, it gives me the incentive I needed to get into the habit of spinning every day... I want to make the most out of that "gift"!
The spindle is sitting by my computer, and is totally bringing a smile to my face! I hope this story will do the same to you.
Have a great day!

Hey pretty lady,

I'm going to call you tomorrow night. I figured there might be a better chance of me getting ahold of you.

Check out this comic that I've been reading. It cracks me up! Hope it makes you smile.
