Life Is Good

It's important to recognize and remember the good things in life, so I've decided to make a point of jotting down my weekly blessings.

So what made me smile this past week?

  • A positive health report from Depoe Bay, Oregon!
  • Fresh, inexpensive flowers from Trader Joe's.
  • Getting carded!
  • Catching up with my girl friends over dinner and drinks.
  • A perfectly ripe avocado.
  • An amazing steak. Thank you, Julia Child!
  • Record-breaking temp (69 degrees!) on January 30th.
  • Wearing shorts in January!


  1. Can you believe that you're wearing shorts right now??? This is the craziest weather ever!! The steak sounds yummy and I would love to be carded!! All of it sounds good!

  2. You got carded?? I'm just a little jealous ;-)
    Hope you're having a good week.

    All things to be thankful for - especially #1. :-)

  4. Staci - I still can't get over it! It was lovely again today and yesterday. Unfortunately, we're supposed to get rain & snow (and wind) this weekend. Oh, well. It had to happen. :)

    The steak was super easy and delicious. I'll post the recipe next time I make it (gotta include photos, ya know?).

    The kid at Trader Joe's was pretty cute. I think he was kind of flirting when he carded me. It was probably shocking when he saw that I was 50. ;)

    JoAnn - Well, I had my hair in a ponytail and under a ball cap. Easy in this town to be mistaken for a college student. :)

    Kay - Yes, I was so very happy to hear that my stepdad's surgery (pacemaker) went well. Sigh.

  5. The weather has been uncanny hasn't it? I typically stay in for lunch but went out for coffee with a friend yesterday and was hot sitting in the sun (outside). It was glorious.

    And yes, I loved the sunset picture you posted last week. ;)

  6. Trish - All good things must come to an end. We got walloped by a huge snow storm Saturday morning. I'm going to post pictures later this afternoon.

  7. Well then I should have let you borrow the shirt I was wearing yesterday. Was a "Life is Good" shirt with a girl making snow angels: http://2ols.com/item_7866_456165988-Life-Is-Good-Women-Snow-Angel-Long-Sleeve-Shirt.htm Ha!! ;)

    LOVE the header. And the beautiful pup. Stay warm!!

  8. Trish - I love those shirts. I have a couple and my favorite says "Biker Chick" with a bicycle instead of a motorcycle. ;)

    Another gorgeous day in Nebraska. Lots of meltin' and sunshine. Glad you like the header. I'm having such fun with my weekly switch-a-roo. :)
