I am so appreciating all of the love and support, and laughter, that I've received as a result of yesterday's blog post!
Just for the record, Steve's shooting blanks as a result of his motorcycle accident. So, unless there is a miraculous conception, I'm going to be happily stuck with creating in numerous other ways. (Sorry if I got any of your hopes up... it really is my weird sense of humor... and a way to spark some interest in reading my blog. Kind of like the fine print in a contract)
Between laughing out loud at your responses, and watching a comedy that caused me to almost choke on my apple crisp, I'm reminded of this potential roadblock in life:
Taking everything too seriously.
I've been guilty of this over the past several months, and haven't quite felt like my joyful, buoyant self.
I know stress can do that. But it was also a result of feeling like ever decision was monumental, and that in making the incorrect one, I could negatively affect many things down the road for myself and Steve.
Watching "See no Evil, Hear no Evil,' with Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder, was just the reminder I needed to relax!
If you haven't see this movie, I highly recommend it. Pryor plays a blind man, and Wilder a deaf man, both of whom witness a murder... well, one hears what happened while the other one saw pieces of it. It's a bust-your-gut kind of film, where this unlikely duo inevitably outwits those they encounter... including the cops and the trip of murderous thieves.
So today, I'm going to give myself a break. I'm going to take deep breaths, smile more, and look for the humor in the world around me.
In this process, I'm looking for more great comedies to watch over the next few weeks. What are your favorites you can recommend??
One a side note, mocktail #1 came out of last's night's movie experience.
It needs a name, but the ingredients include:
- 2 ounces of filtered apple juice (I used TJs)
- juice from half of one lemon
- 1 ounce Reed's extra ginger beer
To make, place the first two ingredients in a shaker with ice and shake away (gotta love the ritual of making the mocktails as much as the real deal). Then, add in the ginger beer, stir, and pour over fresh ice in a glass of choice.
If you're a guzzler like me, you might want to double this recipe right off of the bat.
