Re: I smiled because...

I smiled and laughed out loud because I got caught in the pouring rain of today's Summer storm.
I took off my shoes and walked barefoot, while observing people rushing past, and so I smiled with sweet remembrance

Re: I smiled because...

... the cashier at our local supermarket refused to break my 10-franc note even though my coins weren't quite enough to pay for my few purchases. She fished out a tiny envelope of coins and made up the difference with a few and waved me off. Danke sehr, madame!

Re: I smiled because...

I had a meeting with the head librarian of the Chuv in Lausanne, about my future training there. It went very well.

My own project is on its way as it's the place I wanted to go for my formation

Re: I smiled because...

I smiled because I've realised that today I've baked another pie not because someone in my family wants it, or we are waiting for guests. But because I felt like willing the house to be full of pie-baking aroma: ))
why not to invent air-freshenes with the smell of home-made pies?: ))

I turn the TV on to see if there were stuff about BMX (olympics) and it was individual jumping with a beautiful Medal for Switzerland.
