Entry 4: Sweet

We can all use a little something sweet in our lives sometimes.

And candy certainly fits the bill.  Candy canes at Christmas, jelly beans at Easter, candy corn at Halloween, licorice for watching awards shows.  What?  You don't have licorice each and every time you watch the Oscars?  I thought that was required.  Well, try it sometime.  What are your candy-rituals, any?  Anyway, I'm thankful for the momentary pleasure a little sweetness can bring.

Here's a fun twist . . . Gail over at Delightfully Diva-ish is hosting a worldwide candy exchange.  Each participant will be matched with a partner in the opposite hemisphere and you will exchange your favorite home-country candies.  Go here for all the details and to sign up -- but, hurry, you must register by Sunday, 11/8!  I'm in; I think it will be fun.

So tell me your candy ritual, if you have one, and have a sweet Saturday!

I don't really have a candy ritual - except that just before bed I have a Dove Dark Chocolate. It is such a treat and not that high in calories. But I do have a sweet ritual and that is to have a Mocha, x-tra HOT, no whip, from Barnes & Noble. I go there every Tues. and Thurs. w/ my dd who drives from her co-op job back to college and we meet there to catch up. It is a special time for the both of us. And I like to meet a friend there whenever I can - or go on a coffee date w/ my dh sometimes. So that, my friend, is my sweet ritual. Happy Pink Saturday. Thanks for stopping by.

Weza -- I have no idea what "jaffas" are. I don't think we have them here, unless they go by an entirely different name. BUT they sound wonderful!

Tricia -- "x-tra HOT"?! I had no idea you could do that! And I don't think I could take it, either. You must be one hot momma!
