What gives you an instant smile?
What when you see it makes you feel all warm and fuzzy?
Could be lots of things..
One of my “smiles” are sheep/goats..
I’m not alone, I see sheep pictures, curios, soft toys in all the shops.
Sheep, in person, when you visit them on a farm, may look soft and cuddly, but if their coats are full
and they are out in the pasture, its ah… not so inviting to throw your arms around them for a snuggle.. LOL nor will they necessarily let you.
A Felter, I have tried to clean raw fleece.. what a chore that was. I loved the activity though, the thought that I was doing what pioneer women did, clean, dry, and the prepare the fleece through the different stages to either felt or knit/crochet with. I only made it so far, I stumbled and stalled when i got to the spinning wheel phase. My wheel sits waiting for me to gather the patience to sit and try again. Still when i look over and see my spinning wheel, I smile.. it reminds me of happy moments when I was knee-deep in organic fibers .. the other project that I will leave to others is the dying of the fleece. In the living room I have a showcase full to brimming of all the different colours I could find. My stash is another “smile” in my life.
Smiles come in all shapes and sizes and they originate from a happiness inside. a person who is always pleasant and cheerful, can spread their joy wherever they go.
Just imagine the thrill and happiness this athlete is experiencing. A “smile” he /she will remember for an eternity.
