Oh, LIFE. After you’ve lobbed so many my way over the years, one would think I’d be ready for your wicked curveballs…the kind that immediately halt any plans I had in place and force me into something less desirable. Yes, I should have known better than to test the slab of rock-hard ice on the trail. With that one tentative footstep, my week went from (insert long to-do list here) to spending a few days flat on my back on an ice pack, ironically similar to my position after my fall. I’ve been frustrated and irritated and immobile. But, dear Life, these are the moments when your little gifts mean so much more than they usually do. I can roll my eyes at this unexpected period of time on the D.L., even giggle when I picture myself falling- feet in the air, booty bouncing on the frozen trail, crooked-eared dog wondering why I’m on the ground. You handed me some forced downtime, Life. It’s been a good time to pause and be grateful for you.

I made lemon-basil sorbet (stay tuned). Then I turned it into a cocktail. Brilliant!
