It’s time to say farewell to Positively Friday. I’ve become bored with it and so, probably, have you.
Since beginning this weekly series of posts on March 4th (originally called “Smiles”), I have become much more aware of the good stuff in my everyday life. In 17 weeks, I have trained myself to be on the lookout for positive occurrences, thereby focussing less on the negatives. Thinking positively is now a habit; it’s natural. Positively Friday has done what I wanted it to do, and has run its course.
Now on to the final Positively Friday:
1) Bill’s birthday dinner was a big success. Before dinner, we enjoyed a bottle of faux champagne-like beverage (non-alcoholic) called Noon to Midnight that I found at Whole Foods. It’s interesting and refreshing, but it takes some getting used to. I would buy it again to bring to or serve at a party, but it’s not a drink I would buy on a regular basis.
2) I made Bill his favorite pasta dish, Linguine and Clam Sauce. I bought two pounds of Littleneck Clams and made a garlicky clammy broth. He LOVED it. He even grabbed the camera to take a picture without being prompted. And he’s already asked me to make it again. Here is the recipe I used…sans chorizo.
3) Out of the three gifts I gave him, he kept the coffee firefighter travel mug, I exchanged the belt, and the hat went back. Not a great result, but better than every Christmas around here when 90% of his gifts from me are returned. At least he was happy with his mug.
4) While returning the belt at Marshall’s, I found this top:
And this t-shirt:
And this ironing board cover.
5) Tori and Bill made dinner last night. We had wild salmon with an Asian rub, brown rice, grilled asparagus and Tori made up her own Asian slaw. Ah….a night off from cooking.
