Five Favorites for This Friday

Hello - Happy Friday and Happy Bastille Day!  I hope this finds everyone doing OK.  It's been a tough week, but if you are reading this, it means you survived it, just like I did.  That counts for a lot.  Right now it's raining here in Philadelphia, but that's good because a) rain for the plants, flowers, trees, etc., and b) it's supposed to chase away the stupidly high heat and humidity, and make it breathable again.

Here are five good things from my past week.  I need to remind myself that there is always at least one thing that is good, no matter how everything else has stacked up.  :-)

1.  Laughing.  I love to laugh, and this week has had some really funny if stupid things that happened that made me laugh until I cried.  Most of them are the kind of things that would be too hard to explain to anyone who wasn't around, but even remembering them now pleases me.

2.  Fake margaritas.  The Tim has recently taken to buying this:


He pours some tequila in a glass with this, and some ice cubes, and voila - fake margaritas!  They are mighty tasty, let me tell you!

3.  This is a nice story - how kind of Chris Martin to bring the guy onto the stage.  (Yes, I know it was dangerous for the guy to be crowd-surfing, yadda yadda yadda, but I'm focusing on the good here.)

4.  Petting dogs.  On my walk to and from work, I often run into people taking their dogs for a walk, and a lot of the time, I get to pet said dogs.  It always makes me happy, and sometimes the dog seems pretty pleased too!  This past week there were more opportunities than usual, so that was a real plus.

5.  Packages in the mail.  This week I got 4 packages in the mail!  It was all stuff I'd ordered, but nonetheless, it's such fun to have something waiting for you when you get home from work.  I love getting mail in general, and getting a package amps it way up.

What things have made you smile or just feel happier this week?  I hope there's at least one.

Have a good weekend - as far as I know, nothing special is happening with us, but sometimes those are the best weekends, right?

Nice things (I'm eyeing the fake margarita!!). And packages in the mail are always fun...probably time for me to order something. Here's to a plan-free weekend - my favorite kind. Have a good one Bridget!

Everyone is posting about margaritas today. That's seals it. I'm picking up some of that lime juice today!

One of my favorite things today is how you saved me from making a trip to the liquor store! I have a bunch of limes to use up and have been making vodka gimlets. I'm now out of vodka, but with the tequila in the back of the cupboard I can make my own half-a**ed version of Tim's fake margaritas. Thanks!

Petting dogs always brightens my day! I think I'm going to have to try that margarita - Dave loves tequila.

I am now pondering "fake" margaritas! Thanks for the tip! :)

Oooh, I'd have one of the fake margaritas in a heartbeat if I weren't on pain meds.

My most favorite thing this week(end) is that my niece is visiting. We're going to have a blast.

It's been a tough week here too.

But .............Giroux! He ALWAYS makes the day better and tonight's REAL margarita didn't hurt either. Be damned the carbs.

Bridget- Dogs and pets in general make the world a nicer place.

I love straight Limeade!

Claudia said...

Lovely list of wonderful things to enjoy in daily life! Hard to beat your list Bridget but I would add the quiet moments that I enjoy with my feet up and a cup of tea.

I never made my own margaritas but that sounds interesting. It's fun to get packages in the mail. Thank you for your visit! Hope you're enjoying your Summer!

You know, you could class it up and call them Faux Margaritas! LOL.

I love limeade. I'd forgotten all about it, too. Thanks for the Happy Reminder!

Seems like you had a pretty good week, of course fake margaritas help!
