Happy World Chocolate Day!!

Why didn’t someone remind me? I had to learn it randomly from an Instagram post, and I could have been short handed!

As it is, grandbaby gets a piece of chocolate for every successful trip to the potty. The parents do an M&M; but I’ve been introducing her to the finer versions - dark, darker, caramel, orange peel, darkest, cherry... on and on. Today we’ve been eating malted milk balls.

How are you celebrating? And what are your favorites?

Used to get roasted coffee beans covered in dark chocolate, but last time they have me a migraine headache.

I did not know this! It's a good think I chose to have chocolate sauce on my ice cream at lunch today.

Dang! I missed another important holiday. Monday was National Book Lovers Day. How did you celebrate? I went for my pre-op visit for cataract surgery. I also read a little bit of The Last Days in print and Mostly Harmless on audio.

I’m almost done transferring my books from one house to another. I have only two large cases and two small cases left to sort and find space for. Oh, and this shelf of history books too:

I like to think of every day as Chocolate Day and Book Day!

>8 2wonderY: What a pretty photo! I like that shelf with the flowers and the pictures in addition to all those books. It looks very cozy.

Why doesn’t someone keep track of these things? Tuesday was National Caramel Day. Going to go put a shot of caramel syrup in my mug of tea.

Today is National Ice Cream Day in the US. How are you celebrating?

I’m modestly having my third Neapolitan ice cream sandwich.

I knew there must be a good reason I bought two 1L cartons of ice cream today. (besides the heat)

Enjoy yr chocolates and icecream! My downfall would have been National Onion Rings Day, which, had I known, was June 22.

I didn't have ice cream but my husband made his famous chocolate chip cookies!

National Hammock Day (US).
Do you have a hammock?

I do, but I much prefer the porch swing. The grands like the hammock.

I introduced my older granddaughter to Godiva when she was about three. (She's now 30, and her mother is ALMOST ready to forgive me...)

>17 LyndaInOregon: I got in so much trouble when I gave my oldest granddaughter whipped cream at 6 months. First child, and her mama had strict ideas about introducing foods. 😋. It was never an issue after that.
