Another day, another chance to rack up a few more joys before the end of the year!
Frank’s enchiladas! Oh, sweet heavens to Betsy – they are SO good!! And tonight were Frank’s best enchilada’s yet! Now, I must confess, the above is not a picture of his actual enchiladas. I lack the skill and self discipline to 1) take an appetizing food picture and 2) stop myself from diving in so that I can find the camera and snap a picture. Just trust me, his enchiladas are outstanding and I could eat them all day long. And since there are leftovers, I just might…
Godiva. Heaven on earth. Especially when you belong to their club where you get a free truffle once a month. Holy cow. We had a dinner guest this evening who brought a box of chocolates from Godiva. Frank and I tore through that box like we’d never seen chocolate before – it was SO good! It’s like having an adult Disney World in your mouth – so much fun, you can hardly stand it!
Listening to NPR brings me joy. Seriously, it does. I don’t know what it is about NPR’s microphones, but all of the reporters sound the same. A subtle lisp on the “s” sound and a slow, steady, deliberate way of speaking that says, “What I am saying is LIFE changing. Listen carefully. Once you hear about Joe the donkey in Brazil that carries cocoa beans, you will NEVER be the same.” Listening to NPR makes me feel the same way I do when I pick up a leather bound book in a mahogany library – the distinct feeling that I am being enriched and improved. But just to be sure, I try to balance my NPR time with a little bit of conservative talk radio. You can never be too careful! I remember in one day, I heard a report on conservative radio about a study that was done regarding teenagers and how biased and horrible the study was, and then I flipped to NPR and heard a vastly different type of report on the same study. I don’t know who is wrong or who is right – I didn’t care enough to research it – but let’s just say, I listen to both channels with the same level of cynicism. Gotta be fair and balanced and all that jazz.
