Re: I smiled because...

A few crocuses and primroses too in my garden, but more interesting are the new wild orchises ... they are spreading more and more over the garden...

Re: I smiled because...

I smiled because, in this moment I remember when, ten years ago, I worked in a big company for cleaning in GE, and every day, at more and less 7 am, in the cafeteria, I took my marvelous coffee, even if I couldn´t do this. I was so terrible for break off the rules.

Re: I smiled because...

Because today I made students observe videos of Koko the Gorilla and her behavior, communication, sign language, character. Amazing.

And because it is such a gorgeous day.

Re: I smiled because...

I was early to collect son from his work experience so I had time to go for a walk in the Gorges de Vauseyon which was absolutely gorgeous. Beautiful sunshine, spring flowers carpeting the ground under the trees and fantastic views. What's not to smile about.

The man came to replace the thermostat in our fridge.
Now we can eat yoghurt which isn't frozen!

This was the temperature in our freezer compartment pre-repair..

Re: I smiled because...

The very old wall clock I inherited from my parents- and that had not worked ever since we moved it here- was finally adjusted by a friend watchmaker- and is NOW ticking and ringing again- after 5 years silence. Really made my day- and just in time for Spring A very old Neuchâtel clock by a famous clock maker, Jeanjaquet.

Re: I smiled because...

Because I didn't forget to skate, the years of ice skating sweat. And I had a student drilling me with stuff she trained recently..a bit to go to a pirouette but we had so much fun.

Re: I smiled because...

Had to smile while reading an article about the new radars bought by the swiss army : in the mountains, when a cow moves on the slopes, the radar identifies the animal as an enemy object.

Re: I smiled because...

First lot of washing wafting in the sunny breeze in the garden- had to go through remaining snow to get there though.

And the arrival of one of my favourite birds, the black redstart. Spring is definitely on the way. About 20 fieldfares have just arrived too- sunning themselves at the very top of a massive willow tree by the Church.

Are these real cows or facsimile cows? I assume the latter as real cows aren't going to stand still.
