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.

That is BRILLIANT! XD It made me laugh out loud rather than just smile, but hey, I guess it counts as smiling.

But the last thing that made me smile before that was looking out the window earlier today and noticing how the setting sun was painting all the white houses in brilliant shades of orange and pink (:

Re: I smiled because...

Because at 18.15 tonight, it was still light with the sun shining brightly still on the snow covered trees across the Valley- wonderful to see the days getting longer again



Mélusine- first time in the UK I heard the expression, we had just arrived at friends for dinner... I was quite embarrassed and said I don't eat rabbit

Re: I smiled because...

My daughter has picked her wedding day and it is on the 1st August next year-quite apt to have it on Switzerland's special day especially as she is a Heidi !!

Re: I smiled because...

Despite obtaining a cracked rib during practice, I smiled because the kebab place was still open. I guess it is never too late for some "quality food".

Re: I smiled because...

I smiled because my lovely Swiss neighbour left a Ives Rocher Gift Voucher for me at my door. I sent it off a couple of days ago and received a lunch box and travel mug )

Re: I smiled because...

Could you perhaps re-phrase the first part of your second sentence... please. It sort of sounds all wrong ...

I smiled because so many birds were chriping and keeping company in the garden in the sunshine

Re: I smiled because...

Many many times I find myself smiling after having a really hard time. When fear and depression are gone, and peace is back with me, I understand how powerful is the illusion put on the self by the busy mind. When able to connect again to the spirit, life is good and the smile is back to my face..

Oh please, could you give me the recipe ?

No depression, just testing the grounds on completely unchartered territory, studious and determined, but also feeling reserved and introverted and kind of lonely with this lovely quest.

I smile and laugh every day for the beautiful people I meet, loved ones and for all the discoveries in beautiful subjects.
