THOUGHT FOR TODAY
All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt.

Any day is a good day to celebrate chocolate here at my house and I found this cute and yummy recipe just in time for Halloween.
Miniature Broom Sticks
Peanut Butter Cups Miniatures
1/4 cup Chocolate Chips
Thin pretzel sticks, about 4 inches long
You will need one peanut butter cup and one pretzel stick for each broomstick desired.
Remove wrappers from desired number of peanut butter cups.
Place chocolate chips in small microwave safe bowl. Microwave 30 seconds; stir. If necessary, microwave at an additional 10 seconds at a time, stirring after each heating, until chips are melted and smooth when stirred.
Dip about 1/2 inch of pretzel end into melted chocolate and then insert into bottom of peanut butter cup. Place
‘broom' on plate or tray until chocolate holding handle is firm.
I love a mixture of salty and sweet and chocolate and pretzels are one of my favorites.
I hope you all have a terrific Tuesday!
57 DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS
It's time to gather holiday music. You may think it’s way too early, but now is the time to make a quick check of holiday music media. Gather up the Christmas CDs or set up a new folder in iTunes for holiday music. Add any new gotta have tunes to the shopping list, or add them to gift lists
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Anything is good if it's made of chocolate.
I have counted at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for 2 years and have now reached 2000 gifts. On my way now to 3000. I'm not stopping, but will continue on counting. There is always, always something to be thankful for.
2168. for chocolate, it’s good to eat and good for you too
2169. for my over ripe bananas that turned into some really good banana bread
2170. for the beautiful mum plant that I found on sale
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
