... driving my scooter on a Saturday morning early in town is awesome! No people, nice weather today, fresh hair and no traffic at all! Love it! Shopping done in 10 mins (no people at the kasse too!)

Re: I smiled because...

the sun hopped over the mountain at 8.30 - and days are getting much longer.

And it truly feels like Spring- huge bluew skies, red kites soaring and mewing, and warmest so far.

Re: I smiled because...

The Ticinesi still satisfy their urge for inexpensive Italian Sushi. The Sushi restaurants deliver the food to the border now! Every night. The major of Monteggio (SVP, what else) is highly annoyed. He even calls it smuggling yet it isn't as the portions are not dutiable and all people come to the border to pick up their order.

I love innovation

Sparkly snow, blazing sunshine. And when I look at Bergfex, 8 days of blue skies and 16C !!

Re: I smiled because...

Sunshine, great snow, fab views - empty pistes, no bubbles or cablecars- off we go- starting with a half day to warm up those old legs and metal/plastic knees.

Re: I smiled because...

It is pretty awesome to be able to work again, after the holidays..No matter how magnificent the time off is, one misses the smiles, fantastic job, the communities. Sunny times.

Re: I smiled because...

And even more today - skied on my own and went all over- had forgotten how long the World Cup Piste de L'Ours is, and the Veysonnaz run too- great at the top, but the porridge at bottom was hard work. Still ... loved it and great to know those new knees at 'holding' - and up in a cablecar on my own each time.

Re: I smiled because...

because it is a beautiful day in the Alps - and I am off for my half-day skiing. Half-day is fine for me nowadays - no crowds, great conditions. Yeah.


Later edit- wow, that felt great First time in many years that I had no knee pain at all - thanks to those newish two plastic/metal knees

Re: I smiled because...

I took my husband out for a walk today, which for him is a huge achievement after 3 months in hospital - we can't go far but sat on a bench in the park for a break. He has been using this antique walking stick that has a lovely carved dog head and used belong to my grandfather.
He rested it next to the bench when a Border Terrier that had been exercising ran up to it, grabbed it and ran off with it - it was so funny - although after finally catching it - he didn't want to give it back!! The dog's owner was very embarrassed ...

Re: I smiled because...

... because it is snowing, so this afternoon's skiing should be very different to the thick spring salt of this week. Time to go ...
