ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 12TH, 2015
11 DAYS UNTIL FALL
Sunrise: 7:06 am
Sunset: 7:45 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
September 12th is Chocolate Milkshake Day. So, what are you waiting for? Take out that blender and make yourself a glass of yummy chocolate milkshake. A milkshake is a cold beverage made by blending together milk and ice cream with some sweetening agents and flavorings. The weather may have cooled off. But, our appetite for chocolate, specifically chocolate milkshakes, hasn't cooled off one iota.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt!
Charles Monroe Schulz
The pictures today show my own homemade chocolate milkshake. I don’t make them often, but I did make one in honor of this holiday. My blender is getting quite old but still works. I got it for a wedding gift in September of 1965. That makes it about 50 years old and it’s still working. For this milkshake though, I simply use my tupperware shaker and it worked just fine. Of course I had to put some whipped cream on top !
Today would have also been my Dad’s birthday. May he rest in peace. And one of my nieces and her hubby are celebrating their anniversary today. A great day to celebrate!
I’m supposed to be going to the outlet mall today with DD as she has some back to school shopping to do for our little Xfactor. He started preschool this year. It’s cooler so it’ll be nice to be out and about.
I hope you all have a SUPER Saturday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS

Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!

ADVICE FOR TODAY
As with most fine things, chocolate has its season. There is a simple memory aid that you can use to determine whether it is the correct time to order chocolate dishes: any month whose name contains the letter A, E, I, or U is the proper time for chocolate.
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone dear…
