Okay, why has no one told me of this? Apparently, I have been nary aware that there is such a thing as Coconut M&M's. This combines two of my very favorite food groups. All of this time I have been unawares. How could this be? Tonight, I had to cruise by Target to pick up Liesl's compressed rawhide bones (she got a granola Busy Bone, too, much to her delight.) As I was standing in line, minding my own business, my eyes came to rest on the red clearance sign. You now know that this is how I roll. Beyond that sign I saw Coconut M&M's. This is one of the greatest pairings since Harry Met Sally, or there was Laurel & Hardy, or hot cocoa & marshmallows. I bought a handful of them, but am now a little panicky that I do not have enough now that I have discovered that they are a limited edition. I may have to tap out an email to the Mars company for taunting me like this...
I have put in for my vacation next month and all looks well. I usually take my birthday week off in February, so that I have time to do all of the things that I love. A friend of mine told me a couple of years ago that birthdays are sacred and we really should take the time to enjoy them. I took those words to heart, so I take that time to allow for the sacredness of it and spend time that week having lunch and dinner with friends, taking leisurely naps, and just playing. I truly make that week a celebration. We all really need to celebrate our own lives. We are here for a reason and need to express joy and be blissful that we simply are.
This birthday week seems especially celebratory because I get to play in my house that week. Generally, it is raining here on the Central Coast around then, so it is a good week to stay home and get some things done. I plan on doing some work on the house and basically playing HGTV. I am excited that I will not be inhibited by bedtime schedule or appointments. I can just have as much fun as I want. I have plans to go away on vacation later this year, as well, but I am really looking forward to playing at home in February.
Well, I am off to tuck a spoiled little furgirl in. She has just laid down on her bed (which is actually a large dog bed better suited to a golden retriever.) She has let out her last sigh before she falls asleep. I need to go tuck her blankie around her so she is cozied in.
