Happy Friday friends! I hope you are smiling today. It wasn’t all rainbows and unicorns around here this week, but I was able to find plenty to smile about. I just had to remind myself to look on the bright side!
Old Man Winter made a late arrival in Utah this year, but now that he’s here, it appears he plans to stay awhile. I’m not a big fan of the cold and snow, but I have to admit, the icicles are pretty.
I disappointed a lot of people when I failed at the easiest goal on my Summer Bucket List: enjoy a watermelon jalapeño margarita. Well, better late than never! This margarita from Taqueria 27 was like a glassful of summer in the middle of winter.
Of course, you can’t have a margarita without chips and guacamole.
Larry had another shoulder surgery this week. I’ve lost count how many this makes, but I’m pretty sure we’ve financed a wing of the hospital by now. The good news is, it was a success, and Larry should be feeling much better soon.
While we were waiting for the surgery, we entertained ourselves with the pain chart. We live in a world where pain is now measured, at least in part, by whether or not you are able to text. They also reference the inability to eat. If it were me, I would be more specific: you can’t eat your vegetables, or you can’t eat ice cream? There’s a big difference in pain level there!
And finally, my week finished off with a package on the porch–my bright new Walking Cradle shoes.
How about you? What was the bright side of your week?
