Clouds/Rain ~ Dash/Sami/Jack-Jack ~ Congressman Walden ~ New England Clam Dip ~ Original Weight ~ Bittersweet Chocolate Day


Good  38ยบ raining morning. 

The rain yesterday stopped in the morning and then it continued again in the night. 


It looked like this most of the day, with the sun coming through the clouds for maybe 30 minutes.

 And of course..... Mr. Turkey was curious as to what I was doing....


Sunset..... 







Brian sent me these two photos of Dash....

 Dash and Jack-Jack are characters in a Disney movie, The Incredibles....

Bittersweet Chocolate Day

Today is Bittersweet Chocolate Day! Bittersweet chocolate is a sweetened form of dark chocolate made with cocoa liquor, sugar, cocoa butter, and vanilla. Unlike milk chocolate or white chocolate, it does not contain any milk solids. According to FDA standards, bittersweet chocolate must contain at least 35% chocolate liquor (a non-alcoholic liquid produced from cocoa beans).
Consuming bittersweet chocolate on a daily basis is actually quite good for you. All variations of dark chocolate contain antioxidants that lower blood pressure and help protect your heart. Other heart-healthy foods include green tea and blueberries!
In honor of Bittersweet Chocolate Day, treat yourself to a few pieces of your favorite variety!
  • January 10, 2018 is also Houseplant Appreciation Day
