Re: I smiled because...

Today my wife ,my daughter and myself renewed our CH Passports in Atlanta. Drove yesterday from Charlotte /NC to Atlanta, had a great dinner in a upscale Chinese Restaurant ( Pecking Duck ) walking distance from the Westin and today went to the Consulate General of Switzerland, Atlanta to have our Passports renewed.

Re: I smiled because...

Spring arrived today - we opened the small window into the barn yesterday- and they arrived this morning - and so many red kites and buzzards are soaring all around. Just waiting for the redstarts now Loads of butterflies in garden too, for first time this Spring.

Re: I smiled because...

I just thank the nature to give me an opportunity to see and feel much rain after a long dry and hot period. I needed to change my personal habits after a hard water crisis in Bsb:
Only one bath per day;
Reducing the wash of linen, clothes and so on.

As a teacher, I'm obligated to make students to be aware the importance of conserving water.
THE PLANET EARTH THANKS.

Re: I smiled because...

Every evening the little lady asks me if I've checked the front door.
Yes I reply!
It is still there!

Really warm to day- and a great friend to share it with and a really good chinwag. Swallows darting in and out of the barn and all sorts of birds of prey soaring above. Won - der -ful

Re: I smiled because...

Just been to the back room to have a big cuddle with our guest of the week- Moustachio and gorgeous red cat (whilst his owners are on hols) - he rolled on his back for the first time since here and purred his little heart out.

And ... looking out of the window (the very wide window sills make an ideal place to look at the cows, horses and other wildlife) - noticed that the redstarts are back - so they are all here now, swallows, housemartins and redstarts- welcome home little ones- so glad you made the massive journey from Africa safely.
