Of Love and Chocolate.
I am not one to make New Year's Resolutions. I just try to do my best and don't hold myself to too high a standard. But this year, it seems as though my Resolutions have been made for me, per doctor's orders.
I paid a little visit to my doc the other day to have some "questionable knots" examined. Needless to say, I was very scared. I have held hands with the cancer monster before, creeping right up to the edge. Pre-cancerous cells are something that I have grown accustomed to in certain areas. But this was different. So close to my heart and lungs and hundreds of networking lymph nodes. I was very worried.
Thankfully, my doc says that it is not cancer. Not even close. (Whew!) But it is an annoying little problem. One that could make it difficult to recognize something alarming if it were to show up. So....... I have been ordered to cut my caffeine intake (not that it was very high to begin with) and keep up with a few important supplements. One being evening primrose oil, which makes me burp up the taste of a shrimp dinner.
Which brings me to chocolate. Yes, I know. How? Well, it all started on the trip to the Earth Fair market on the way home to pick up said supplements. The hubby and I mused at all the beautiful, organic (sometimes odd) products. Natural body care. Endless herbal remedies, supplements and aromatherapy oils. And an entire wall of fair trade chocolate.
It took me all of about five seconds to pick out which bar of chocolate I wanted to buy. (Please refrain from informing me that chocolate contains caffeine. I am indeed aware.) But how on earth could I pass up such a pretty package as the one above? A deep brown background with red and gold designs. It is sooooo much prettier in person!
Look at that! Whoever designed this wrapper deserves a reward.
And the chocolate inside? Well, the name says it all. It is, indeed, quite Divine.
*I realize this is a random post. And I do have lots of other stuff to share with you. Like the fact that I got a new laptop for Christmas!! So, I do not have it all figured out quite yet. And I need to transfer my pictures over so I can share some of those with you, too.
AND... if you haven't claimed some loot for yourself, please scroll down and do so now. I'm not gonna wait forever. Go, go, go.
