Re: I smiled because...

Well I just found this thread but something came to my mind.
That right before Christmas I smiled because the 7 yrs old boy I babysat for a week because his mother was away, gave me a sticker note, in an envelope that he made, and wrote ''I love you'' , together with 3 hearts!! This was after a week that I took care of him every day and we did Origami and Christmas Cards for his parents and friends. And I told him that I hope we will see each other again and he hugged me! Then he told his father he wants to see me again because I teach him nice things .

Re: I smiled because...

I have the nicest neighbors anyone could ask for. This morning our clothes dryer went out with a bang (and some smoke and drama and awful burning smells). I had to re-wash the clothes that were in the dryer so they didn't smell like they'd been in the garden smoker for a week.

The neighbor gave me her spare key and told me to use her dryer until ours is fixed!

I was just able to purchase a single seat, at a decent price, to Tristan and Isolde, on 1st Feb from helpful salesperson at Zürich Opera. Can't wait to see Nina Stemme in action!

Re: I smiled because...

....am I the only one smiling (last post also mine from a while back...)

The sounds coming from the next room were my daughter, SINGING in her sleep. I know she talks sometimes but now she added a melody

Britain's got talent surely? Anyone can sing ( some better than others admittedly) but singing in your sleep now that's real talent.

Re: I smiled because...

Better sit down - don't hover

I smiled because after all the snow and strong winds- the sun came out today, wind dropped- and it was just so beautiful out there. Our garden looks like the dunes of the desert of Namibia- but all in white and glistening our garden fence is there... somewhere under the tree

Re: I smiled because...

Got a lovely letter from an older friend in the UK (no internet) in which she included 2 photos taken last September. Honestly, I love 'real' letters, and cards, be it birthdays, Christmas, etc- so much nicer than e-mail any day.

When we moved here, I gave most of my potted plants to dear friends- and she had quite a few as she is a keen gardener. I gave her a camelia which had never flowered in the 5 years I had it- despite ericaceous soil and great care- and she took it out of the pot and planted it by her pond. For the first time ever- 5.5 years after I gave it to her, and in it's 10th year+- it was covered with the most delightful pink flowers- and in autumn and not Spring? Wonderful, really made my day
