Re: I smiled because...

the sun came out (even for just a little while), and I saw blue skies and mountain tops.

Re: I smiled because...

last night I opened the window even though it was freezing and I turned the radio up and let the cold air whip around the room. I smiled because it's winter and I'm not even sad.

Re: I smiled because...

I ate choucroute (sauerkraut?) for supper and my daughter wanted to try.

When she put it in her mouth her face was priceless

Re: I smiled because...

Last week, in the middle of a small UK town shopping centre- I spent hours watching 2 otters playing in the river below the footbridge- just a couple of metres away. So beautiful- spent hours there and saw them on 3 separate days (Market Harborough, River Welland)

BTW anyone from East Leics around?

Re: I smiled because...

Im not sure why this makes me smile every time i watch it, the song, the uniforms or that they are 'carrying' while they are dancing, anyway it has been floating my boat and often puts me in a good mood all day

I used to set a relativel high standard for myself.

Now I couldn't care less, and I smile at simple achievements and ordinary things which should not be taken for granted.

Watched the movie "Gandhi", again and smiled at the good people who came out of the wood work to help him. Couldn't help smiling at Richard Attenborough`s introduction too. The power of 1.

Team USA just won gold in Women's snowboard slope style, and Team GB won its first ever medal on snow with bronze. Nice job, ladies!

I just got off the treadmill sweating to a great biathlon run, I had to watch out so I wouldn't fly off it, it was funny. Moravec did so well, we got a medal, woohoo!!!

Re: I smiled because...

I got a new stick deodorant today.

The instructions read: "Remove cap and push up bottom."

I can barely walk now, but whenever I fart, it makes the room smell nice.
