I am Thankful!

For chocolate. Why, I don't know, but females need chocolate. A running joke in our home is "when all else fails, give the girls chocolate!" That or flowers - we have a huge garden in our front yard and back (both of which have died off or gone into "hibernation" due to the cold *sniffle*), as well as about a dozen plants filling our dining room to the point beyond coziness. However the pink, purple and white blooms of our geraniums, and a plant whose name is unknown to us, and the delicate leaves of parsley are contagiously happy compared to the drab pre-winter weather we are experiencing.

Yes, I am very thankful for chocolate - with nuts - and the intoxicating fragrance and bright pink petaled flowers that grace our dining room.
