It’s BLISS BITS Wednesday!
This week has felt happily balanced. Social time and solo time. Chore time and trail time. Home-cooked meals and date nights. As summer sneakily slides into fall, the days feel noticeably shorter and the nights are peppered with the songs of the elk in the backyard. I’m feeling pretty grateful for the BIG things lately- but those big things are really just a lot of little things put together. Take a look.
Spicy wonton chips make a pretty pattern.
John’s meticulously prepped brunches are delicious!
These grew inside in a pot on our hearth because we ran out of room in the garden.
Sometimes BOTH ears are floppy. (Note the tennis ball under my pillow.)
I love how this small pine tree is perfectly framed by the others.
She’s upset that I’m making her sit for a photo.
She prefers to do this to squirrels and chipmunks.
My favorite is the tiny stripey one in the top right corner.
I’ve missed you, Betty. Let’s plan a date for the weekend.
I love uninvited snuzzles.
This looks fake. It isn’t.
En route to a fabulous dinner party.
This crockpot pork posole wasn’t as good as we’d hoped…
…but this spicy BBQ pulled pork sammie with tangy apple slaw was AMAZING.
A sold out show for the Black Crowes!
Have I told you guys about my wine-toting bag (complete with insulation and spigot)?
Our last concert of the season ROCKED.
We like it hot.
John’s making hot sauce with those peppers!
Have you seen these charming journals at World Market?
More baby green peppers, growing on the vine!
Three years ago today, I was shooting skeet in Northern Utah.
Two years ago today, I was making myself dizzy on a child’s toy.
One year ago today, the wedding RSVPs started rolling in.
And this was half an hour ago. Sometimes toast with fresh butter is perfection.
You know. Just the usual bliss.
