I know there are hundreds of thousands of you out there who have been “Snowed In”, without power, and may be in distress much longer than necessary.
Usually I’m good in these situations. It’s temporary and I can manage.
I can find lots of things to do to keep busy. As long as I have power the computer can fill in when boredom strikes.
I always have a full pantry so I cooked, made cookies, finally cleaned up the kitchen then made a cup of tea.
That cup of tea was begging for chocolate, well, actually it was me not the tea. I had a chocolate chip cookie but needed more chocolate. You know how that is when you just crave something on these crazy days?
I used all the chocolate chips in the cookies I just baked so I went to the cabinet and found ONLY 2 dark chocolate Hershey kisses. “That’s it? OMG, how could I forget to buy chocolate candy?” In our house, chocolate candy is a staple like the milk, eggs, and coffee. I can’t believe I ran out.
BUT, when your car is in a snow pile that is physically impossible to dig out in a few hours it hits you like that snowball from behind when you least expect it and realize there is now way out!
The thought of being unable to get to the store was getting to me. Then I remembered the Ghiradelli package my sister sent for the holidays. Oh, thank goodness I found it. There they were, falling out of the box were the little packets of Ghiradelli squares in all their glory.
Sometimes all we need is Chocolate! at times like this.
As soon as I finish shoveling that car out of the snow pile I’m going shopping — for chocolate of course.
Stay safe and warm,
