Re: I smiled because...

Going skiing at Les Bugnenets again, as conditions are still great. Didier Cuche's homeland, not too far.

Re: I smiled because...

I 'm in home office in expecting to be vaccinated, soon teachers will be. For while, schools can't be open due to high level of deaths and transmitation rates.
That's why I'm so happy and I love to be at home

Re: I smiled because...

I still can't stand goat cheese. I tried again, soooo hard. Some stuff just resists.

I've tried one or two which I didn't like, two which are okay, and three that I love.

I guess it depends on the style.

Probably. But I have a feeling that just like some people dislike cilantro, I got a thing against goat cheese.

Today I smiled because of the open libraries.

How many varieties of coriander are there, and how different are their flavours?

I think I've tried seven or eight varieties of goat cheese, and the flavours vary almost as much as differing cows' milk cheeses.

Our local library's been open for two or three months, iirc ... limited numbers through the door, obviously, and with a mask on. Went last weekend, borrowed Wii U games and board games. Love that they have games as well as books, CDs, & DVDs!

Yesterday the one in ZH was packed. I think it is the only time students can hang out together officially through assignments these days, since all the uni seems online otherwise, mine are. So they at least get together in small groups and study together in libraries. I have to check their DVD racks, good idea, thanks!

So, today I smiled because I opened my laptop and there was another girl with her laptop and we both had the inside of laptop covered with little post-its. Hahahahahaha. I thought I was the only doofus post-it person, instead of using digital post-it apps.

My post-it is for covering the webcam.

Re: I smiled because...

Yesterday... A couple dancing by the Rhine. With no music.

A few days ago... Someone was throwing out a cat tree that looked in fairly good nick. We rebuilt it to fit into our home and the cat likes it. Much nicer than our old one (also a street retrieval) that was getting a bit shabby.

... because the Hobby falcons were back this morning- and flying around and around the massice ancient Austrian pine in the Church grounds - celebrating getting home safely. Means the swallows (their favourite food) will soon be here too. Our barn is ready for them.

My soft waffles made me smile. Fluffy like clouds.

Sorta ... definitely fantasy storyline, often I use D&D character creation rules to "create" major characters.

several groups of deer scratching in the snow in the fields at the back, to get to grass - lovely to see so many of them.
