Re: I smiled because...

I saw internet footage of a little Dachshund in Belfast who can balance things like Jammy Dodgers and doughnuts on his head whilst wearing a bow tie

Re: I smiled because...

Above me blue sky
Its beauty taunted my rain
Then she moved my storm.

Re: I smiled because...

I had a lovely long walk in the Basel sunshine with my husband yesterday, followed by some dinner. Today I've achieved something by packing away all the summer clothes tidily and getting the autumn / winter things out

Re: I smiled because...

The fall this year is amazing, warm and colorful.

I smiled because I heard students going to school.

I smile every day because I see and hear the children from the Kindergarten on the edge of the park across from my flat, they're delightful

Re: I smiled because...

The bus driver thanked me for giving him way although he was totally entitled to have it anyway, a pedestrian stopped to let me get into a garage although she was totally entitled to walk undisturbed.

That was like in the old days, how nostalgic

Hahahaha, thumbs up! You are a winner in my world.

I smiled because I was at a conference presentation, somebody who isn't used to it. He nailed it better than the old pros. It was magnificent. I am still smiling, his charisma, humor and selflessness was phenomenal!

Re: I smiled because...

Before spinning, my washing machine kind of shakes the laundry within to spread it evenly.

Today it had a darn' good rhythm while doing that. Too bad it was too short to have a little dance.
