We All Need a Little Smile

Honey Dew Donuts

I did not go for donuts yesterday for Donut Fridays with the family. I didn’t go because someone in the house decided that he was having a bowl of Nutella, fluff and peanuts for breakfast. So, I did not go for donuts yesterday morning. I went this morning to surprise Allison with a coffee and the kids with donuts.

Our local Honey Dew was open for walk ins and so I went in to see what they had and they had these very cute smiley face donuts. I figured that with everything happening in the world right now we need a smile.

I tried to sleep and made it till about 1:30pm. Then I was up. I went to Twitter and took a look to see if things were on track for the Space X Crew Dragon launch that had been rescheduled from earlier this week. It looked like a go so I tried to get back to sleep but ended up staying awake. So, we watched the launch all together in our bed. I held my breath watching because of memories of the Challenger and Columbia. I didn’t want to see anything like that happening on a good day let alone during a global pandemic and civil unrest. Plus, I in no way wanted the kids to see something like that live. So I held my breath until the astronauts made it into the outer atmosphere. I don’t think it had as much impact on the kids since they have seen movies like Star Wars and Guardians of the Galaxy and space travel is almost normal for them. It wasn’t like that for me when I was growing up. The amount of movies and tv shows that I have seen since I was a kid that involve space travel is staggering. So, I can just imagine how many space based shows and movies the kids will see.
