Today’s a sick day at home for me. It means I’ve got a bed made on the floor of the living room and the birds are taking their little bird naps while I’m unsuccessfully trying to take my own. I’m so jealous of their fine little napping abilities. I’ve never been a good napper! So instead, I’ve just flipped through the channel guide on TV and without much more than half a thought, I tuned into the first Bridget Jones’s Diary movie. Haven’t watched it in years, it’s already more than halfway through, and I’m not really paying much attention to it—but it makes for a more cozy time that way. It’s also been so dreary and gloomy outside (Fall is in full force here and has been for a while now) so it’s a big cozy day in today, out of the weather and under the weather.
I could not be bothered to make lunch today and so I did what you’re definitely not supposed to do and ate some chocolate chip and walnut oatmeal cookies while waiting for my milk to heat up for the hot chocolate I was preparing.
It’s so quick to make and tastes so much better than that stuff in those little flat pouches you can buy from the store. And there are only 4 ingredients, all of which are completely natural! It’s healthy for you, providing energy, calcium, and antioxidants. A million times better than the pouched stuff! I promise, you will never again bother with the other stuff after cozying up to some of this yummy, cozy, warm, chocolatey goodness in a cup.
So please, go ahead and try it! As for myself, i’m going to try and nap again. And I bet that won’t happen. Again.
At any rate, I hope you have a cozy and happy day! And hopefully, chocolatey too.
