There’s nothing like a warm, sunny spring-like day to bring you out of the doldrums after a long, cold, snowy winter. It’s sure to put a smile on your face, a twinkle in your eye, and a spring in your step. How wonderful to put on a hand-knit cardigan as you leave the house and have it be more for the fashion statement than for needed warmth.
After a lovely lunch with friends to celebrate a birthday, I spent the afternoon with my mother. We enjoyed watching the quail in her back yard – who are definitely feeling a bit frisky. Five gentlemen quail all chasing a single female around the yard. It won’t be long before we see those cute little fuzzy chicks.
A trip to the grocery store not only provided me with some highly-coveted “Barely Buzzed” cheese*, but I also got to spend a few minutes relaxing in a massage chair while my mother picked up her prescription at the pharmacy. I entertained myself by reviewing the contents of the shelf across the aisle – personal lubricants, condoms, home pregnancy tests, and believe it or not – an over-the-counter DNA paternity test. Who knew?
I still got home in plenty of time to enjoy a bit of sun on the back deck with some Siljans crisp bread topped with “Barely Buzzed”, and something to get me barely buzzed – a gin and tonic. What could be finer on such a day?
Oh, well, there’s this of course. Yes, I’m a tease.
* ETA: “Barely Buzzed” cheese from Utah’s own Beehive Cheese Co. is an award-winning cheddar that’s rubbed with lavender buds and ground coffee. That’s the edible dark rind you see in the photo.
Ooh, I googled your cheese and it sounds divine. I so love cheese. It’s nice to know that SLC is nice and springy this week, sigh!
I’ve never heard of that cheese; it sounds divine!
What is this thing you speak of, “a warm, sunny spring-like day”?
You finished it! I need to find some of that cheese…it’s so intriguing. It was amazing yesterday…I can’t wait for it to be more normal!
It was absolutely gorgeous out yesterday, wasn’t it!??!? Now I’ve really got spring fever.
You ARE a tease. More pics, more pics!
Mmm… cheese and crackers and a drink. And a massage. And lunch with friends. *bliss*
But the home DNA paternity check?! Whoa.
Over the counter DNA test?? Wow.
Sounds like you had a delicious relaxing day!! Yay!
