Re: Lets count the things which made you HAPPY today....

Woke up today 40 minutes ago because I got a call saying that a BBQ I was gonna attend was canceled . Then I got a call 30 seconds later inviting me to another BBQ and another call minutes later to go to another later!

After 4 months I finally have a social life in Switzerland!

Then going to the kitchen window and seeing blue skies and the Alps in plain view. You can't really ask for more
Then also learning that a friend just had a major legal problem resolved positively this morning.

~ Despite having slept for over half the day, today is looking to be quite a lovely Saturday!!

Re: Lets count the things which made you HAPPY today....

We are gardening now & I'm so happy my wisteria has filled out. I was worried they had chopped too much of it out.

Now how to save the quince tree??? I think it's going to have to be chopped down. (Will take this to the gardening thread)

Re: Lets count the things which made you HAPPY today....

Hmm...no green glob for me...I guess that is not in fashion anymore.


It is nice to count our blessings....

We bought a new Hamster cage.

I bought a M-electronics GPS for 29,95 chf (no typo).

Sun is out, less or almost no hayfever symptoms.

Aren't we all happy today?

Perched on the sofa with my newborn son happily feeding at my breast whilst I eat a big bowl of ice cream mixed with broken up chocolate bars and saturated in Hershey's chocolate syrup.

Re: Lets count the things which made you HAPPY today....

Just climbed Cornettes de Bise, doing 1400m vertical difference up & down from Miex. Wonderful day, beautiful views to Mont Blanc and whole Haute Savoi and Valais. And relationship with my girlfriend (been there with me) seems getting back to normal
Yes, it was a gorgeous day I must say...

Receiving quality time with my 2 teenage sons - usually an almost impossible feat! (Those with 16 and 19 year old boys understand what I mean)

Sleeping in.
Nowhere to go on a rainy day.
Eating blueberries for the first time in 18 months (thank you new Aldi and your closing time discounts).
Ditto for corn on the cob.
Dreaming of where else we want to travel in the short term future.

Re: Lets count the things which made you HAPPY today....

Nice quiet morning, then drop #1 son to a birthday party - which he really enjoyed, and was just a real birthday party: kids playing together in the yard, then riding a billy cart down the street (it's okay, it's a cul-de-sac!). Not sure what they did between those two, but cake was definitely involved ...

You guys make the 14 I've had with my wife (anniversary middle of last month) seem rather trivial ... but they're not!!

Congratulations - other 40 years! Wow!
