oooooh, chocolate ….

February 12, 2009 § 7 Comments

The  blog I wrote nearly 13 hours ago today? Gone. Blanked. Deep sixed. Finito. Just because I wanted to participate in Blogland and fiddled around with a first grade effort didn’t mean I had anything to actually say or share.  I deleted it. 

And then came chocolate, from HM. And da’ roses.







And now the sun is out (it seems). A lot of the research and writing I had to do is done.  The dishes and laundry are done. I heard from a dear long-distance friend today. My phone is re-charged. My camera is re-charged. Me, too.

The one-pound bar of Bissinger’s in the box is 75% chocolate. (As comparison, a Hershey bar is 11% chocolate. Big diff, there.)  And Lord, you can smell this Bissinger’s right through the box.

Apparently, one square of this before bed makes you sleep better. It has fiber. No caffeine. Good HDLs. More anti-oxidants than blueberries, green tea and broccoli and red wine combined!!!! (not that you’re going to smash some blueberries, tea and broccoli into your red wine and drink it combined – I’m just sayin’, ya’ know, to get the truth about real, excellent chocolate out there.)

Many of us have always known that chocolate makes you LIVE better.
It gives good blog ‘tude, too. 
(Why not pair it with flowers, says HM, and see what happens?!!)

    Well, golly! With that chocolate, “if a little’ll help, a lot’ll be better! Hey, I’ve had days like your yesterday (and often, I might add!) So, I totally “get it!”

    Glad you’re looking forward to tonight and dinner, cards, etc. — with a fellow like that, Valentine’s Day will be easy!

    On another note, I’ve found lots of good blues and browns! Hopefully I can package for mailing this weekend!

    Take care!

    Everyone knows that chocolate is an integral part of anything good that happens in this life. It is a certifiable fact. Enjoy it, the red wine (sans blueberries, green tea, and broccoli–as if!), and the donor, who clearly ‘gets’ it!

    All – Looks as if there’s no such thing as too much chocolate!

    I may live in Texas, but Bissinger’s ships! After Bissinger’s entered my life (how DID that happen?)
    Godiva was consigned to the far pasture. Only Moonstruck out of Seattle is better, IMHO!

    Gorgeous flowers.
    Thanks for the Bissinger’s you guys bestowed upon me. I’m excited to delve into them 🙂

    Glad you guys had a lovely day together. Makes me so happy.
