Nice people deserve credit for being nice. A little goes a long way in today’s world. I would like to think these few people who made me smile the last few days:
The man who shouted “Nice Cat” to me when I was wearing a cat sweatshirt walking down the street.
The cashier who wanted to have a conversation about Halloween with me.
The person who held the door for me at the grocery store.
The person who held the elevator for me.
My doctor who just made me feel good with his professionalism and encouragement.
The person who said they liked our garden on the roof.
To the stationery store owner who gave me my pen for 20 cents cheaper because I accidentally gave him pense instead of cents. He gave me back the 20 pence and said “Don’t worry about it”. Reminder to self: Clean out your change purse!
To the person who said “Thank you” when I held the door for them.
To my swapping and pen-pal friends, you always put a smile on my face.
To my cats who always know I need some love and affection.
The girl who said she liked my dress on the street.
To my mail delivery lady who is just really nice.
To every single person who comments on Brooklyn Farm Girl. You make me smile and laugh hysterically. I want to serve you all tea and pumpkin donuts and tell you how great you are!
A smile, a compliment, a door held open, a thank you, a postcard that just says hi – these all are special to me and can change my mood almost immediately. I’m big on common courtesy so it really does make my day. Can you think of a recent time that a little niceness picked up your spirits?
Now on to the yum…..
I really like tacos and I really like casseroles so when I’m able to put them together it’s like sweet magic recipe worlds combined.
For example there’s my go to Taco Casserole, Slow Cooked Pepper Steak Tacos, Crockpot Chipotle Chicken Tacos, French Fry Casserole, Green Pepper Cheese Casserole, Cauliflower Pizza Casserole. Tacos? Yes, please. Casserole? Goodness, yes, please.
