Don't cry over spilled milk or bad notes . . .

Today's Writing Prompt: Olympics

Are you watching the Sochi Olympics? (Many people are boycotting them or just aren't interested.) If not, why not? If yes, what do you think so far? Any favorite sports, stories, athletes?

I'm not a real sports fan but I do enjoy the Olympics.  Sadly, February was a slow month at work for the hubby and he kept interrupting my Olympics-viewing.  He is not a fan.  Don't know why.


I only have one blog post for February 11th and it is about a paper piecing I had just finished making.  http://inmyworld-pam.blogspot.ca/2014/02/paper-piecings-small-suitcases.html



Don't Cry Over Spilled Milk Day

When : Always February 11th

Don't Cry Over Spilled Milk Day is in recognition that everyone spills a little milk now and then. It's a day to be optimistic, think positive, look on the bright side, and to find something good in everything that happens. As the song says: Don't Worry, be Happy!

Today is a day to recognize that s_ _ _ happens. And, when it does, Don't worry, or fret, or cry over it. Rather, take a positive attitude and fix it, or get past it.

We all know the concept of the question: Is the glass half full or half empty? The pessimist sees it as half empty. The optimist sees it as half full. It's all an attitude towards life.

You should participate in "Don't Cry over Spilled Milk Day" with an optimistic attitude and a smile on your face.
