I don't know. I guess I just can't say "No" to fun, nummy things. Hmm, it shows in the waistline too ): Today was my weekly trek to Ashland to see the chiropractor and Ashland has one of the last remaining "Market of Choice" stores. Ours, here, closed down last year, which totally bummed me out. They have the coolest food stuffs. Scary when food is so exciting. Me and Jas just went nuts in the store today. We were like swivle head dolls. Spent $180 on , what the "big guy" would term, not real food. You know, not dinner foods or anything, but baking and snacky foods! Is there really anything else? I got my Scharffen Berger Chocolate bars (for my own stash), the Dagoba chocolate drops to make the new "Chewy Chocolate chip cookie" ( I learned about these from a cool foodie blog called Mixed Salad Annie), Scharffen Berger baking chocolate (I can't wait to try this!) and I just had to get the Lillie Belle Farms Spicy Pecan Toffee! Oh, and forgot to mention the fresh Baklava! So good with the Dutch Bros Americano! Mmm, to die for! There were alot of other things too. Like soft cream cheese that took 2nd place in some cheese contest (I am such a sucker!), great bagels from Little Shop of Bagels, fresh breads and more.. Then on to Harry & David's for great apricots, peaches and white nectarines (so good with fresh blueberries). They are the best and go fast in my house.
And, as always, the last stop at Barney's aka Barnes & Noble. I picked up the book "The Mercy of Thin Air" by Ronlyn Domingue, sounds real good, and couldn't pass up the fun sounding read "Body Mover's" by Stephanie Bond. I finished "Case Histories" by Kate Atkinson, the first of a new mystery series featuring P.I. Jackson Brodie. I really liked it. Reminded me of the PBS Mystery Series. Am now on the 2nd of a new series by Shirley Tallman. The first was called Murder on Nob Hill and the 2nd is called The Russian Hill Murders. Both featuring Sarah Woolson as the heroine, 1880's woman attorney who solves crimes. They are fun reads. So many books, so little time!! ):
I also saw a very cool bumper sticker that read "Be Peace". What a wonderful saying!!
