I wish my hobby was knitting, because I could make myself something warm to wrap around myself on these chilly mornings. (And yes, I feel silly saying “chilly” when it’s 45 degrees and the rest of the country is around -4000, with windchill.) My hobby/passion is writing, so I am going to make myself a shawl out of rejection notices. Mmmm cozy.
|That’s totally me at Grandma’s house!|
Other than being cold, I’m on a hunt for candy. Since being made aware that I am now allergic to chocolate, I need to find sweet stuff that won’t send me into vertigo. All the good stuff is either chocolate or covered in chocolate. I’ve been searching for caramels. Unfortunately, all the caramels I’ve found so far live in chocolate houses. My Grandma used to have a candy bowl with Brach’s flavored caramel Royals. Seen suggested I ask her where she found them, but as she passed away over 23 years ago, the conversation probably wouldn’t be productive.
The Whole doesn’t have caramels. Target didn’t even have Kraft caramels. None of the 80 grocery stores we’ve stopped at had caramels sans cocoa. So now I’m pondering Amazon, which apparently has an abundance of caramel selections (including Royals which I would find delicious, but eating them would make me miss Grandma). Or I could make my own, but we all know how incredibly lazy I really am.
