Day 524: Perfect For A Crazy Hot Day

This was going to be my Joyful Moment:

Not because of the awesome lighting involved in taking this shot, but because that is some homemade strawberry lemonade (well, not the lemonade part--that's from a can).  I thought of the idea and then pureed the strawberries.  And then I added the lovely strawberry garnish.  All my idea.

One that I'm apparently ridiculously proud of.  You'd think I cured cancer, or something...

Anyway, so that was going to be my Joyful Moment for today.  But then I remembered that I was only halfway finished with the laundry today (that's why laundry on a Saturday is never a good idea), so I went back to finish.

In the process, I discovered the other sock to Little M's poor lonely sock that's been sitting in the bottom of the laundry basket for months!!!!!!!!!!!!

Seriously.  I don't know how it happens.  But these wayward socks somehow have a way of finding their way home again, so when one goes missing, I just leave its sad other half in the bottom of the basket so I'll know where to find it when the missing one returns.

Does it reflect poorly on me if laundry is my Joyful Moment?  Maybe.  I don't care.  I'm still super stoked about it!

Wishing you all Joyful Moments in finding something that completes you!

Oh I wish that would happen to me!

Mine was finishing my half-marathon much faster than I was planning on!

We used to do a birthday BBQ bash for Norm. It was right around the time we could order a HUGE bucket of sliced strawberries. We also had a pretty big crowd for that one. I used the frozen lemonade with the strawberries in the blender.... it was also yummy and everyone seemed to like it.

There's something about the strawberry-lemon combination (just like strawberry-rhubarb) that has some special magic to it.

Joyful Moments are never known to reflect poorly. They are simply to be enjoyed without reservation! :-)
