Posting on Sutter's behalf due to uploading issues.

Here are the trophies that Sutter's children have won in BMX competitions.

(As an aside. don't the cupboard doors look nicely lined up?)

Re: I smiled because...

"Ok, guys, so I have this really nice Portuguese song, I need you to tell me what it is about.."

"Mais, Madame, we can't..."

"Why?"

"Because it is not Portuguese.."

Doh.

I love teacher's faux pas in the class room.

Respek!

Re: I smiled because...

.... It was such a beautiful day of gentle sweet silliness, tibits of living, and a feeling of becoming.

I received a graceful, thoughtful, unexpected compliment for my work and it lifted my spirits.
Then, while waiting for an appointment, I had the rare opportunity to indulge in my favorite past-time: seeking for vintage watches at the "marché aux puces" in Geneva.
It reminded me of my student years.. special times after class, wandering through the make-shift stands presenting their bits of stories, curling up on one of the benches in the sun with my books, observing people and their living.
I passed by a certain place where I had been really sad, and realized that it no longer hurt.. I had let the feeling go.

Little things, invisible, of no importance, but it felt so good to feel like me again, that it was just worth a day of smiles.

I smiled today because

I left my washing in the communial washing machine today, totally forgot about it , and came back 3 hours later to find that a very kind swiss lady, had not only completed my wash for me, but also dried my clothes and FOLDED them neatly and put them in a pile, so she could continue with her scheduled wash time :-) THANK YOU . See some Swiss people are very kind
