I caught a nasty cold last night and feel rather yucky today. I decided some self-indulgence was in order. I stopped at Wee-Bee Flowers in Hallstead, PA... and the lovely Jill Aldrich allowed me to hand pick what flowers I wanted, and arranged them for me so that all I had to do was put them in a vase when I got home. I did NOT feel like doing this myself. Aren't they just gorgeous? Jill and Penny (her right-hand gal) do absolute magic with any kind of live floral. I'm so glad I went. I almost feel better. At least I am enjoying my view. Stop by Wee-Bee Flowers in the Hallstead Plaza, as well as on facebook... and tell 'em I sent ya ;)
Along with my flowers, I came home and was exhausted, so I made myself a nice hot cup of coffee to enjoy with the truffles I bought from Pure Pennsylvania made by Chocolates by Leopold (located in Montrose, PA). The truffles are "Espresso Truffles" covered in dark or milk chocolate. The little decoration on the top of the truffles are tiny roasted half espresso beans. I bought six of each dark and milk chocolate. So far, I've been able to be satisfied with one of each. Can you say YUM? Pure Pennsylvania is under new ownership by a lovely lady named Becky. She has some very amazing ideas for the business she now owns. She's a very warm, friendly, and energetic woman. Stop by and see her and visit for a moment (also on facebook). Tell her I sent ya ;)
I put my little treasures in a gathering on one of my old wooden kitchen chairs. Almost magazine worthy eh? Maybe I should start a new publication called "Indulgence" and write about all the different ways we can indulge our many senses and feelings. So many things in this life that God created for our enjoyment and pleasure. Flowers, chocolate and coffee are just at the top of my list. :)
So, all in all, I believe I accomplished what I set out to do today as I was running errands and feeling poorly. I managed to purchase a few things that bring me so very much joy and comfort that I desparately needed today.
