And even better yet, the chocolate news. Again, according to "Real Simple" we NEED at least 2 doses of chocolate to reap its potential health benefits...health benefits??...hallelujah. A report published in the British Medical Journal found that after several studies, those that consumed chocolate at least twice a week were 37% less likely to develop cardiovascular disease and 29% less likely to suffer a stroke. Oh those Brits....I could just reach out and give them a great big chocolate hug. So pop those chocolate truffles in your mouth and remember, it's for your health's sake.
I kept telling myself all day, get outside and take some pictures of that snow. Mother Nature gave us a good helping, about 7 1/2 inches for us, and I think further north more. I was ready to get dressed and try to start the snowblower when I heard my neighbors shoveling my walks and driveway. I love my neighbors. I did get dressed, but didn't make it outside until late this afternoon. I love the way the snow collects on top of the dried hydrangeas.
And my lovely tulips are still picture worthy, at least for one more day.
So today you have learned a good lesson, drink that coffee and eat those chocolates, all for your health's sake and don't let anyone tell you differently, it's all according to Real Simple.
