I smiled because
- I found a new forest + pond area around Winterthur
- and because some girl on the street randomly said "hallo" to me and I said "hallo" back and then her pretty mom, or babysitter, idk, looked at me and smiled..
- and because there was nice weather for at least half a day..
Keep this up, and you’ll be un-endlessly happy in Switzerland! Yes, it’s these small moments. Especially the contact with nature here. Or the interaction with people. You kind of get used to it over the years. I love it each time as well!

Re: I smiled because...

... I might actually have a day when I don't go outside (except on the balcony). Hasn't happened for several years, unlike my wife and children who seem to get a day like this every fortnight, or more frequently.

Because we got a big bag full of organic veggies from a nearby farm.

Re: I smiled because...

I didn't smile this evening as the local cops approached me on a public footpath, asked for my ID and if I was selling drugs!

Happened to a friend as well. She‘s a Swiss Judge, and hardly even drinks alcohol. Only drugs she takes is for asthma. Hopefully this will make you smile again

Despite snow flurries in the morning, by afternoon the crocus were rioting at mid-alp and below the spring flowers were going strong.Name:  crocus-resized.jpg

Re: I smiled because...

After long days with fever and pain in all my body, due to Covid-19, I finally come back to enjoy eating and cooking, it's a sign that I won the battle against the virus!

And these 2 days, I got out the first time to feel the warmth of the sun. Soon, end of all, I'll be vaccinated against Covid-19, a priority for teacher from elementary and high schools.

Oh, that's good news, that you're managing to recover. May you re-gain all you strength, and full sense of smell and taste!

Because there are quite a few book readers around in public transport. Yesterday was "Reading-aloud Day".

After 9 months I swam again under the sun and I could see my shadow on the bottom of the pool.

Looks like your previous efforts on private footpaths have been noted by the plod

Re: I smiled because...

Stopped for mother and young daughter at a pedestrian crossing. Child on a foot down bike. Vehicle was “secured” by mother with one of those very long dog leashes. She did smile back
