Sometimes when I sew, I need a little 'pick-me-up' to keep me going...a diet coke with just a 'touch' of vanilla always hits the spot. I like to get mine from Quick Trip...such a clean and efficient place...if you don't have one in your area, well, I'm sorry. That's just sad.Anyway, back to the snacks....to go with the coke, popcorn is always a good, low cal choice. This bag was recommended to me by two different people during a recent trip to Trader Joe's, so I caved and bought it. I ended up having to hide it from my two year old grand daughter, Jane, she liked it so much!
Speaking of Trader Joe's: this Three Layer Hummus is fantastic with my all time favorite pita chips, Stacy's Simply Naked. I have to hide them from myself, I like them so much! (By the way, this counts as lunch, too.)
Oh, and have you seen these yet? Oh, my! Is it my imagination, or does that M&M guy look like he's eaten a few too many? (Maybe he's drunk on chocolate.....LOL!)
Since we are on the subject of chocolate, get a load of this chocolate dessert that I got to indulge a few nights ago! (I looked like that M&M guy by the time I was finished.)
The cake was for a very special occasion...our tenth Bird Day Party (a play on words...get it?) for the Pink Flamingo Club, an empty nester club that I belong to...
....with these wonderful pink friends. We've been meeting together twice a month for 10 years now. Our eighth member passed away in June. We miss Kathy a lot.
I ran across these pretty little notebooks at Michael's last week, and thought that they sure looked familiar...
then, when I turned them over, I knew why! (See that name in the middle, and the word "Terrain" in the upper left corner?) What do you know!
They are only a buck each, so run, don't walk, to the nearest Michael's to get yours before the word gets out and they disappear. You can add letters, like I did, to personalize them, if you want.
And while we are on the subject of gratitude...see these baseball tickets? My hubby and I decided at the last minute to go to the ball park last week and as we approached the ticket counter a stranger offered me two free tickets. I hesitated just a sec, thinking that they might be in the nose-bleed section. Boy was I wrong! We were blessed with maybe the best seats in the house: almost right behind home plate and only 10 rows up!
Now, I call that a Random Act of Kindness! I'm planning to pass along the kindness, not with Royals Baseball ticket, course....but....something! How about you? Do you do random acts of kindness? I know that Stephanie does, because we've been chatting about it.
I'm linking with Cindy and lots of others for Really Random Thursday. Join us?
