blog love at first sight...

yesterday, was a day of reflection for most of us.
i was seeking a simple, peaceful image to display on 
my page of the day.

i paused at this pretty place.

 i took a journey back in her timeline.

her images eased my mind.

 "simple pretty" and real.




brush up on your Finnish and visit lovely

a healthy reminder { week nine } ... time for a new ritual.

an afternoon cup of tea flavonoids
 will be good for me!

(i've been reading about flavonoids*...
...flavonoid antioxidants keep cells healthy.)

i'll sip it black or green, fancy or traditional, plain and simple,
or with a touch of honey.


...on three days a week...

... i'll take little bite of dark chocolate
 at tea time.

the dark chocolate on sale in the grocery store was this week
was Moonstruck,  which is made in Portland, Oregon.
i bought a plain dark bar, and one that holds Chile Variado.
i am totally intrigued with what the chocolatier's are adding to
chocolate lately. the two bars will last two months, if it's not shared.

the new ritual begins today.

{next Monday,  focusing on flavonoids and weighing in.}
