Life is just a bowl of lemons

I love the pitcher, shaped like an Erlenmeyer flask. Perfect for meyers lemonade.

Why is it
that we always want what we don't have? Or is it just me?

When I had straight hair, I wanted curly hair.

I have curly hair now (thanks to chemo), and I long for straight hair.

When I'm skinny, I want to gain weight.

After I've gained weight, I want to lose it.

When it's cold, I wish it was warm.

When it's warm, as it has been for weeks, I dream of nights by a roaring fire.

Today, I felt a rare emotion: perfect contentment. With my weight, my hair and, best of all, this glorious balmy Southern California weather. Instead of fighting it, I squeezed lemons and sipped lemonade while watching the birds and the bees in the back yard.

Beautiful. Contentment is a great thing and to stop and enjoy the emotion is even better. Your lemonade is absolutely inviting. I'm glad everything is going well. Hope to see you soon. n

I love the pitcher, where did you get that? I want one just like it and can't find one anywhere! Thanks!
