I'm enjoying a mug of "tea" made from cacao shells (cacao is what chocolate is made from). It has a nice chocolate flavor, and the only fat and calories come from the bit of sugar and dash of milk that I add. Mmmmm! Wish it weren't so pricey, though. I could drink it a couple times a day.

Cat came around a few times this week. I think Cat's a "she," and I think she may be expecting, from the look of her tummy. She dashed into the house the other day when I opened the door---something she's never done before. I was able to pick her up and take her back outside. She may be looking for a "nesting place" to have kittens in, and I'd rather it wasn't in our house!

Gotta run up to the North Shore later for an appointment and to stop at L.L.Bean to look for some new clothing. It's cool today but it's sunny, so it'll be a nice drive. (It's a little over an hour away.)

Thinking about another mug of cacao tea, but I don't want to use it up too fast---I just got it yesterday! It's a 4 oz. tin, and it takes 2-3 tsp for a serving, so it may not last long.
Happy Saturday, to you, too!! Chocolate tea, cats and L.L. Bean - Merry, you are having one heck of an awesome day

My job will be closed for Easter but Wayne and I will go up there in the morning to feed the animals before church.

It will be a great weekend!

I hope you all have a marvelous weekend too!
Hope you enjoyed the evening with your grandson!

I could smell cigarettes all over her, it smelled like she'd been at a party or a bar. Anyway, we let her call her mom, but her mom refused to come pick her up. She started crying again, saying she would just walk home, about 10 miles. Of course I took her home, but it was in a very VERY rough part of town, so I didn't stick around long. Now I'm beat, 'cause it took me a while to get back to sleep.
What kind man you are, Brad! That was so nice of you to do that, for a young girl you didn't even know. God Bless you!

CAH, MerryCarey, Christmasstar, Sugar, Shellie12, Big (((((HUGS)))) to all of you just because xo

Made - You are far too modest. You are a wonderful uncle and a wonderful young man and I am proud to call you my friend xo
It's okay, CM3. I have faith in you and am behind in you! That's the attitude to have.
