The Walking Dead

I was starting to lose all faith in the second season of "The Walking Dead" but last night I caught up on Sunday night's episode and feel adequately put firmly back in my place as it pulled it out of the bag and managed to present a plot twist that I didn't see coming! In hind sight, I should have seen it, but the deflections were all over the place and this one actually got me good! THANK YOU! Finally! This is what I like to call GOOD TV!

Land of...Jellybeans!?

Why, oh why is it so difficult for me to pick a background for my blog!? Surely it can't be my Libra side, again!?! Convenient excuse if ever I needed one!

The few minutes I have to myself have resulted in my hastily picking a rather bold, bright selection of jellybeans for your viewing pleasure, while I casually go about my morning routing before I finally return, later in the day, to rectify the situation!

My son is about to come out of hibernation after a very long weekend off for Thanksgiving, so I better go put some coffee on and whip up some pancakes!

Fair Trade

Last week I attended an online webinar from KIWI magazine on Fair Trade. For attending the webinar there was a prize drawing for 3 people and I was one of the lucky ones to win! The goodies arrived just yesterday and I was delighted! It came with cinnamon, chocolate chips (dark chocolate), a dark chocolate bar (85% Cacao! Yum!), organic green loose leaf tea (delicious), Red tea with pomegranate and green tea with lemon! There was also an awesome Fair Trade tote bag, which will be fabulous for my grocery shopping!

I have always believed in buying Fair Trade and supporting the workers wherever possible. Sometimes it isn't so easy on a smaller budget but we do what we can!

Webinars can be very informative but they're sometimes even more rewarding! Suffice to say - the chocolate went pretty fast between myself and the kids! :D
