Today I am pairing a lovely Earl Grey tea with some delightful chocolates that my friend Jeni (JeniEats) sent me. She is a wonderful friend.
Yes. I sat on the couch, covered up with a blanket and indulged in eating not one, not two but all three of these lovely little morsels of goodness.
It has been a tough week.
I inherited the aching sinus, dripping nose and headache from my beloved. I tried to not succumb but I failed.
The weather today is gloomy, rainy and gray and it fits my mood.
There is a lot going on in my life and in the lives of those I love. My mom is having hip replacement surgery on Monday. I will be with her in Ohio for an extended period of time . My thoughts have been pretty much consumed with getting ready to go and with being as helpful to her as I can be.
In the past week I have heard of the deaths of 3 people that I cared about. One was my sister’s best friend. It is difficult to accept that I will not be messaging Becky or seeing her pictures on Facebook anymore. I feel so sad for my sister. It makes me realize that each day is a gift indeed.
So today I chose to eat a small delightful box of chocolates by Mademoiselle Miel. Trust me they are delightful. Check out their website and watch the adorable short video below.
There are days when I think that is perfectly acceptable. Today was one of those days.

Oh yes, some days we just need chocolate and those look very good. Wonderful that they showed up just when you needed them! Hope you are feeling better soon. Blessings to you and your mom. I will be sending positive thoughts your way. xo
Thanks so much, Darlene. I will get there. I just can not be sick and go be with my mom and share that with her.
I’m so glad you liked them and that they arrived so quickly. So sorry about all of the loss you experienced this week. Thinking of you all as you prepare for the surgery next week. Love you!
Thanks, Jeni. I loved every honey morsel of them. Honestly I did not even think to save one to share with Chris. I was very selfish. 🙂
Three’s not enough to share with a significant other
I hope you can shake the cold before you head north. I’m sorry about all the loss. That’s hard. And I wish your mom a successful surgery and speedy recovery.
Thanks so much, Dawn. I appreciate the kind words and thoughts. Today I hope to be more with it! Hope springs eternal.
Hoping you are feeling better this morning! Keep me posted on the surgery! Safe travels!
Thanks so much! Headache and still congested but I am going to kick this! Will keep y’all posted on the surgery progress. Thanks!
Feel better! I hate to be under the weather. Sending you love as you tackle your tough week!
Thanks so much. You are the best! I am feeling a bit better today –I just hate to not feel well. Not that anyone loves to be sick but you know what I mean. I have stuff to do!
I know…notebooks to build…cats to pet…chocolate to savor…Just kidding!
Yep, some days we just need to curl up on the couch with chocolate and hot tea. Feel better soon!
Thanks so much! I am getting there. Just don’t want to carry germs to my sweet mama in Ohio, you know?
I am so sorry you’re dealing with all of these issues in one swell swoop of a difficult week. If chocolate helps (and it always does), then eat away without any guilt. Praying for your health, your comfort and your strength (and that of you dear mama). Love you, dear friend! (Notice exclamation mark.)
Oh I will be fine. But I needed to just not feel guilty about eating chocolate and I felt the love from my readers affirming me. Today is going to be a healthier day–I am about to hike to the mailbox. If that doesn’t do me in I will be fine. 🙂
Aw, I’m so sorry that you have so much going on right now. I know you’ll be a blessing to your mom. How sad for your sister to lose her best friend….. I hope you feel better soon.
I didn’t come down with it but felt myself fighting it all week. Hope you’re completely well by now!
I am well now. Thanks so much!
Our thoughts and pravers are with you! As your physician I recommend another chocolate therapy.
Thanks! I appreciate your prescription!
