I always find I'm exhausted this time of year, the sun sets earlier and these shorter days play tricks on my mind, I find myself ready for bed at 8pm. UGH, am I the only one?
i was walking up the grocery aisle the other day and stopped dead in my tracks.
The graphics and colours of these Coke labels just appealed to the artistic part of my brain, I stood staring and hubby asked what was wrong, I pulled out my phone to snap a picture and he rolled his eyes.
"These make me smile" I said
"Get one then honey" he said in an encouraging voice.
"They are $1.99 for that tiny bottle!!" I gasped and then the smile disappeared. That's crazy, I thought, seriously who would pay $2 for that... crazy people, I walked away.
Now it's 3 days later and I'm scrolling through the gallery on my phone I came upon the picture I took, smiled again, even bigger this time, I didn't get suckered into buying a Coke in a fancy bottle :)
I remember hearing the news as I drove into the parking lot at work, I rushed in turned on the tv in the lunchroom and we all watched CNN.
You could feel it to your core, my body and brain went numb as I tried to process this unimaginable tragedy happening before my very eyes. I'm tearing up as I write this...
I will never forget.
This handsome fella isn't mine, Tango is part of my sisters family so technically my four legged furry nephew :)
Roasting the beets intensifies their natural sweetness, do this in the oven or on a hot summer day use the bbq. Recipe is HERE
