Killing Time or Filling Time

Our car was being fixed today and so we had a lot of time to kill whilst waiting. But that’s such a negative expression, and in fact we had a pretty good day exploring and playing.

Thus, it seems more appropriate to say we filled time. Here are some small things that captured my attention and “made my eyes happy” today.
