See this? After an amazing time of quiet, journaling, prayer, and sweet music, my Good Friday got off to a bang! It turns out it is the birthdays of two gal friends… so when seeking inspiration, I was moved to make these!
Hand-dipped organic black mission figs in dark belgian chocolate dusted with ceylon cinnamon and the other half dusted with cocoa-cayenne. oooooo… can you say that again?! oooooo…. AND… as I said yesterday, I need/want to stop licking my fingers after assembling things in the kitchen…(horrible mindless munching ensures typically) wahoo– NO finger-lickin’ today! I was not even tempted…although my mindlessness almost got the best of me, my conscious choice prevailed. It is true that the giver gets blessed back… and I got to prove to myself I broke another bad habit! I love how cute the little treats turned out... I made two extra for myself to have on Easter Sunday. 🙂 I do hope Karina and Elina enjoy their goodies. Making something, beating a bad habit in the process, and then gifting homespun love…*sigh–there are few natural highs that beat the gift of giving to others.. I am so blessed and happy!
I am so energized from this season of fasting…. I am loving life and loving the joys I am claiming as my own without apology! I did 45 min of yoga, an infrared session…laundry, made my dog food, going to go food shopping and start cooking for this weekend…and have a date night with my husby (hopefully, if he can spare some time from his production deadlines.).
And you know what?! … I just noticed, I am not as queasy from the Nektar juices. They still don’t taste as great as others, but at least I am not nauseous!! LOL
I am still amazed at how I did not dive in and eat my gals’ birthday gifts. Seriously, when I make treats for others I always double the recipe because I end up eating 1/3 of it to “taste test”… I guess my gal pals are my guinea pigs today. At least I can vouch for how cute they look. Right?! ...even NOT eating chocolate release endorphins it seems!
