A big event at our house on Thursday's is a visit from the garbage truck. As soon as Smudge hears it coming down the street she races to the front window to make sure it is the garbage truck and not a school bus, then she wants to go outside to get in on the action. On these cold mornings we have to put a hat and coat on before she goes out on the side deck to get a closer look.
Then she come back inside and rushes to the front door to see it stop in front of her house. The garbage men know her now, and always wave. Lately then have even made sure they raise the drum and put the truck through its paces for her.
Finally, I got a picture of Smudge with the little pumpkin we bought for her at the store the other day. She tried to lift all the big pumpkins and couldn't budge any of them, so she was quite excited when she found one she could manage. Somehow it ended up coming home with her.
Smudge Lesson for the Week - It's the little things in life that bring the greatest joy. Look for them all every day. Don't let any of them go by unnoticed.
