Hot cocoa night at Jess & Ron's. Hung out with friends (including Jess's mom Bev), received some gifts, played some games, snacked a little, and... oh yeah, had some hot cocoa. (I tried a little of each batch - regular, low carb, and dairy free... and added a little Kahlua in mine as well.) Lots of fun and laughs. #goodtimes #friends

Happy Thought of the Day #362


This book showed up on my IG feed about a week or so ago, and I will admit - the cover and the name caught my eye. I had been planning on meal planning a little more and have friends doing the keto thing. I am no means going to be doing it full hog - I mainly got the book for the recipes to get some (or all?) ideas on what to make for little ol' me. We'll see how this goes.

Happy Thought of the Day #361


Managed to stay awake enough after work to run a couple errands... and then on the way checked out a small market I always drive by but never had time to stop. Didn't buy anything since it was a little busy and under construction, but I might go back. And then I had a random craving for boba, and found a place relatively near my apartment to get some.

Happy Thought of the Day #356


My brother and sister-in-law got my our mother these treats a while back and couldn't remember where they got them or find them locally anywhere. They had similar treats at a store down the street from my office, but I couldn't remember the flavor, and when I went back, they were all gone. On the way to Fresno for Christmas after work, I made a pit stop at Casa de Fruita to visit the ladies room and decided to check out the shop after... and wouldn't you know it? (I bought two - one for her and one for me.)

Spending a few days in Fresno with the family. Also got some birthday presents. There were cake and ice cream after Thanksgiving dinner for me and my mom's husband, but my brother and his family gave me some gifts - chocolates and beer - but my two favorite parts of the present were my niece's homemade birthday card to me as well as the shirt they gave me. Made me a little emotional I must admit.
