Re: I smiled because...

Talking about bees, I was fumbling with my flowers when I noticed a rather impatient bee, trying to get to them. It was like "you always claim you're allergic to us, so move on, woman".
Which of course I did immediately, after all, she had a point.

Re: I smiled because...

I finally properly trimmed and sanded my homemade dice, and it was easier than I expected.
Now to get the epoxy resin polish ...

She certainly does look miserable. If you scroll down, you'll see her again, next to a similarly miserable looking dude, above the caption "‹ber uns".https://www.switcher.com/%C3%9Cber-uns-c51763141

There, and at "Nachhaltigkeit", https://www.switcher.com/Nachhaltigkeit-c51770085, they tell us about their company policy to do things properly, not to use pesticides, etc. so perhaps those two were feeling abject at the thought of the - truly terrible! - conditions in the rest of the textile industry.

Or maybe she just really is constipated.

Re: I smiled because...

Today I noticed my windows look real bad - covered in pollen.
It's raining now - big time, I can hear it hitting my windows. An other problem elegantly solved.

Re: I smiled because...

I just heard loud noise outside and thought this cat-fight sounded a bit nastier than normal so I decided to brake it up.
And what did I see when I opened the door? Two squirrels, which ran off (after each other though ) when I showed up.

Oh, yeah, and a very flustered cat which obviously didn't know what hit it.

I smiled because I came across this post. What a lovely thing to pause and share the things that make us smile.

Re: I smiled because...

Full moon. And it's so low, just barely above the next houses' roof top.
I don't remember seeing it being so low except when I'm up in the mountains.

Beautiful.
My camera makes crap photos so I won't even try and just enjoy the moment.
