There’s no denying that some days are so crummy that they just need to be deleted. While I try to live in a manner that embraces the bright side, at times it’s nearly impossible to find. Luckily, I’ve stashed a pile of little things from the last seven days that give a glimmer of a smile during dark times. There is always something to be thankful for.
What made you smile this week?
Today is my brother‘s birthday! I hope he knows how proud I am to be his sister.
My favorite way to start my day: a smoothie made by John.
This is what happens when someone sneezes. She hates it!
Yummy smoked salmon breakfast!
I spotted the first flowers of the year along the trail this week. Yay!
Antler in tree.
Springtime = clean car.
The flavorful fire!
We had spicy tofu lettuce wraps and potstickers for dinner. #srirachaforever
Come on. Come on. Feel it. Feel it.
Charming detail: John can braid.
Do not underestimate the power of flowers.
Piglets. I love the curly tail.
A year ago, I made shrimp tostadas!
Two years ago, I spent some Q. T. in The Wok.
And Cholula‘s ears were growing faster than the rest of her.
Three years ago, I had post-Mexico pneumonia and took zero photos. Blah!
Four years ago, Nancy was here for pond-skimming! De ja vu.
And this was my chilly coffee view this morning. Brrr.
You know. Just the usual bliss.
See what blissful bits I was enjoying last year!

Sometimes it’s hard to see the “blissful” side, but the other side has no bottom. YLD
We all have our crummy days, Amber. Take a deep breath, grab John and Cholula for a snuggle, and know that the crummy will pass and bliss will return once again.
I usually have the theme song for the Facts of Life playing in my head when I have one of those days or weeks . . . Take the good with the bad . . . come on sing it people!!! Happy Bliss Day:)
Every day is crummy AND blissful. How much of each depends how you choose to see it! Love your collage of kid pics. Too cute.
So much to say. 1 – Happy Birthday to your brother, you guys were too cute as kids! 2 – It’s OK Cholula, Dottie is afraid of dishwashers and feet. 3 – How many of those bottles of Cholula did you buy? And 4 – John braiding hair, that’s just awesome!
