This has been one of those weeks. You know the kind. (at least I think other people might) The kind where everything you touch has been dropped, spilled, broken, boiled over... Well, that day turned into a week.
You should have seen how thick the burned on part of this spill was. This is a pot of Chicken Tortilla Soup. (by the way, it's delicious and it makes a ton)
I've been purposely looking for the joy throughout the week. It is my One Little Word after all.
The joy in the spill? Found it! I was dreading the clean up. The chiseling. I laid a towel on the cooled burner and poured vinegar on it. I let it soak for about an hour and let the vinegar do its thing. After that, a lot of the mess was wiped up. The part that wasn't, I scraped off with a metal cookie spatula and finished up with my stove top cleaner and a Magic Eraser.
Worked like a dream!
One thing that was great this week was a short snow 'storm'. School was let out for this 2 hour event. I'm from up north and find this kind of funny but was so thankful to see the excitement in the eyes of my children.
The other day I noticed a couple of blooms on my daffodils. Our weather has been so up and down lately, it's crazy. Even the flowers are confused.
Your turn! Have you been looking for joy this week? Do you have a word your focusing on? If you have a post about it, link it up in the comments or just tell me about it! What great way to encourage us all! I'd love to see what you're up to!
