Bliss Bits 5/7/2014.

It’s pouring outside today, with gropple and hail and snow mixed in. I’m actually embracing the chilly weather, when I’d usually be pouting about snow in May. I know these days are numbered, and the precipitation is making my yard happy and green. It’s about balance, something I’ve struggled with lately. It’s ok to have days that feel chilly or unmotivated or sad, because on the flip side, there are days full of warmth and energy and laughter. How wonderful to have the opportunity to experience it all! Take a peek at a few of the things that brought me joy this week.


The happiest plant in my house.




I want! How fun!


Green tips on the trees.


When I read on the porch, Cholula keeps watch over the neighborhood.


John sent me this gorgeous photo from California.


I love my new print! Mountains-birds-sun.


Spring tulips.


A sunset stroll with Cholula.


Every day.


Lazy mornings are the best.


Big blue sky.


I made a delicious Cindo de Mayo cocktail with these ingredients! Stay tuned.


Mi esposo es muy guapo.


I’m fascinated by these tools on the wall of the Foundry Grill.


Mount Timpanogos as seen from Sundance Resort.


My parents have begun their camping season! Happy Dad cleaning trout.


A year ago, John was zip-lining in California!


Two years ago, Betty was getting sparkly at the car wash.

Three years ago, sweet Zamboni turned 9! (Which means she just turned 12- aww!)


And this morning, I spied lots of green things in my wet yard.

You know. Just the usual bliss.

  1. vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv Enjoy your blog so much. Like a drink of cool water in the desert sometimes. Love the pictures and the thoughts. Takes away the stress of life for a few minutes and that is so wonderful. Would love to see more pictures of your outside habitat. Your deck area looks so inviting… Thanks again. Keep them coming….

  2. Love the green buds popping up everywhere! It’s the same here in Chicago; it always seems to happen overnight and catch me off-guard each year!
