Re: I smiled because...

I spent most of the day in Zurich city with my family and it was beautiful! It wasn't very busy, the weather was lovely and we all had a happy time.

Re: I smiled because...

Went to the 'Fete du sel' down in the valley, and met a couple of friends I had not seen for about 40 years, and like me have just come back to roost. Funny how the area where I was born and bred seems to call back those who have traveled and worked all over the world- and yet get pulled back by their roots - and fit right back in, somehow.

Re: I smiled because...

Today I went to the local markets and bought ingredients for spaghetti bolognese (that has now been cooking for the last 3 hours) and also bought some flowers for the studio. This afternoon I used my platemaker to create a negative for the first time and with a little trial and error just created a fabulously clear and accurate negative that I'm going to use to make a polymer plate tomorrow. I can't wipe the smile from my face
Right now I'm off to finish a bottle of red wine and eat spaghetti bolognese with my husband then we're going to head out for a couple of drinks at our local watering hole.
*happy dance*

Re: I smiled because...

I went and collected my car from the garage in Zug and despite not having the 400k cash with me that would justify staying there , I passed a little toyshop in the country between Zug and Hörgen that had a row of small vintage style pedal cars lined up outside that really made me smile with both nostalgia and intent (A "Rosebud" moment).

Re: I smiled because...

... we celebrated a belated Aidil-fitri with Muslim friends and other Malaysians yesterday and they much appreciated the beef rendang I made. There was a variety of other delicious Malaysian main dishes, desserts and cookies - lip-smacking moments and boisterous company!

Re: I smiled because...

Our little one waved me bye bye this morning and said "tchu" which is her version, I guess, of tschüss. Made me smile.

Re: I smiled because...

I was just thinking of a friend of mine, who, very career orientated, had a friends-with-benefits only relationship with a colleague of hers.
This was about 4 years ago.

They got married a couple of months ago.

Such is life.

there was an old man on the tram this morning - who despite carrying oxygen and finding it difficult to breathe - still went to Bürkliplatz to buy his wife flowers!

Re: I smiled because...

Ohio State University beat Akron OH 42-0 (football) on Saturday.
Today I got an email from my excited teen age son back in the USA telling me that after months of decision making as to which college he wants to attend, he wants to attend OSU and play football there. This was the university I attended back in the day. He expressed he is more focused on his continued excellent grades for his senior year of high school so he can get that scholarship at OSU. My heart is full of smiles

My Mum had oxygen for the last year of her life. She used to carry the cylinder round in her shopping trolley. She went out shopping on the bus three times a week.
