Today's not-so-favorite moments included . . .
. . . starting to make the pibil marinade, and discovering that the bitter oranges I'd bought yield half the juice I thought they would. I'd been planning to run errands this afternoon anyway, so the kids and I took a long detour back to Chicken Itza for more oranges.
. . . tasting a few drops of bitter orange juice. News flash: it's really bitter.
Today's favorite moments included . . .
. . . seeing a live rooster casually wandering the restaurant's parking lot.
. . . buying a few little things for our Yucatecan dinner tomorrow: mango, a red onion, habaneros. It's fun to plan and prepare a special dinner now and then. And I'm letting the solar oven do most of the work this time.
. . . bending, running, lifting, and sitting with minimal pain or fear of re-injury. I know I've touched on this several times lately, but I truly am grateful for every bit of progress with my back. You appreciate your health so much more after you've lost it for a time.
