It is snowing and it is now seventeen degrees. I had two plans for today and one was cancelled and I cancelled one. My only commitment was to hot cocoa. But then I pondered... I referred to the hot drink made with milk and chocolate as hot cocoa, but what was the more popular term, hot cocoa or hot chocolate? Yes, there are more demanding questions in the world, but this is where my mind wandered on a winter afternoon.
The Swiss Miss folks call it hot cocoa, but do you? This is one of my favorite mugs, with happy memories of sunny days on an Italian vacation. Snowy New York day in the background.
This is the scene from my front steps later in the afternoon. Usually there's a lot more traffic.
But a little -- or a lot -- of snow won't keep me from announcing the winners of the Fifth Blogaversary giveaway. The winner of "Living Well One Line a Day" is Mary and the winner of the "surprise" book, "I Love Being a Mom," is Ida. I'll follow up to get your addresses. Thanks, all, for being part of the blogaversary fun. I'm excited about my sixth year of blogging. It gets better every year.
I have another giveaway on the top right corner of the blog. It's a great one -- two kindles, two iPads and two nooks -- and the book that's sponsoring it is a very enjoyable read. It's a really sweet Amish story and I'll be writing about it later this week.
Thanks so much for stopping to visit. If you're in snow land, too, keep warm and cozy. If you're somewhere warm, please have an iced tea and think of me. Take good care!
