Bliss Bits 3/27/2014.

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.


Homemade gnocchi.


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.

  1. 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:)

  2. 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!
