I Like Thursday #40!

Sorry to be late.  I was gone all day yesterday taking my little 3 year old grand out on her birthday trip with Grandma.  We went to the pool.  She and her brothers are moving 9 hours drive away and I am so sad to say good-bye.

I attended a retreat for work on Tuesday and had a great time.  We were put into random groups and had to photograph ourselves doing weird things such as tap dancing, yoga, on a boat, racing a stranger, etc...  I was nominated to ask a stranger to give me a piggy back ride.  HELLO - EMBARASSING!  I did it though.

Here is me on the back of a woman who served our meals at the retreat.  I don't even know her name.  We are both smiling though.  Doesn't the photo make you feel like we are lifelong friends having a great day?

I challenge you to make a stranger smile this week, but you don't have to ride piggy back!

  3. Well done, you look like you are having a great time. Bit hard for your challenge as we have to wear masks when we go out. Maybe I should draw a smile on the mask??

  4. Sad that your family is moving further away. Lots of things on your todo list, hope it goes well for you. And you were certainly brave than me, great photo, so good on you.

  5. you are so cute and I want your plaid shoes!

  6. You are so adorable! What fun.

  7. Oh no….9 hours away? That’s awful! What a fun challenge you had! You do look like you are best friends.

  9. How are you? Where are you? Hope you and your family are well…..

  10. What a fun picture, sounds like a great retreat.

  11. Oh my goodness -- asking a stranger for a piggy back ride is like the complete OPPOSITE of all the social distancing we've been doing for the past 18 months!! You look like you were having fun. I'm sorry your family is moving away. I know you will all find a way to stay connected and make the effort to see one another in spite of that distance!
