That sounds so nice artiemom artiemom ! I don't know why it's hard to find a robe with long sleeves. I wanted one with long sleeves that hit mid-calf that is mid-weight. Like a heavy cotton or light flannel. I can't find one just like that. But DH got me the Pusheen bathrobe for my birthday and it's pretty great! It's fleece; but not so thick that it's bulky. I have another robe that is very plush but it's too bulky (also mint green; not my color of choice). The cats have always stolen it to curl up for a snooze. :lol: Then I have a lightweight one that's short and really only good if you need something to cover up with while dressing. I take it on vacation for walking between the bathroom and bedroom.Then I have one that zippers up. It's less bulky; but you can't move in it. I feel kind of like a sausage in a purple casing. :paperbag::lol2:

So the quest for the perfect mid-season robe continues! But for now; I have my Pusheen robe. :lovecat: And I just got a really cute cat sign/wall hook for it. I need to decide where to hang it up though. :D

You mix cocoa, sugar, dash of salt, and water in saucepan.
Huh. I never thought of making my own from scratch. Sounds delicious.

It is down to my ankles, the sleeves are long!! I have to roll them up!! This is unheard of since I am 5'8".
That sounds so cozy. I didn't know you were tall like me!

My positive is I got my flavored sugar order from My Spice Sage. I got samples of Demerara sugar, Honey sugar, Maple sugar, Coconut sugar, Lime sugar, Lemon sugar, Chocolate sugar, and Caramel sugar. All the samples are 1oz except the Demerara, they only had 4oz size in that.

artiemom artiemom Your robe sounds so cozy!! The one I'm wearing is cozy as well but about 7 years old.
Cheetah print, hee, hee. When it gets cold like this I wear it when I get up and keep on till I bathe.
When it's really cold I'll wash and dry it, then wear it for the rest of he day, feels so good to put it on
straight from the dryer.
MoochNNoodles MoochNNoodles Your Pusheen robe sounds very warm!

Very chilly and damp here but I'm rugged up, nice and warm. I have some good movies to watch,
Play Misty for Me and the remake of Footloose, which I think is almost as good as the original.

That white chocolate peanut butter sure sounds good. Is that something new? I have never seen it at Walmart.

:hugs:

After no sun for awhile we're supposed to have some today!:sunshine:
Cal passed the hairball and now she's happy. Willamena, the white cat who I thought was a boy,
snuck by me while I was feeding her and came into the house through the slider. She walked right
up to the bag of dry food, ha!! I scooted her out but Cal was on a throw rug right there. she didn't
seem to mind at all, sweet girl. If she was the Vincie girl, there would have been trouble, hissing and
growling, hee, hee. Miss her :rbheart:♥

I'll probably read and maybe watch a movie. Wish I had some of maggiedemi maggiedemi mag's white chocolate peanut butter!

My positive is that I got my flu shot this morning here at assisted living. Also I

mailed my absentee ballot on Saturday and was notified this morning that it was received. That's one more vote for Biden.

I have apple cider from a local orchard. Its SOOO good!!
We have 2 jugs of it too. I don't know what to do with it. Maybe add some spices and warm in the microwave for a drink?

My positive is I bought a couple more sugar samples- Vanilla Sugar and Spiced Vanilla Sugar. They are made with ground Madagascar Vanilla Beans. The spiced one has Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Allspice, Cloves added.

My positive is the sun came out and some of the animals i had been used to seeing in our yard came back today - cardinals, bunnies, a woodpecker and a tuxedo cat from down the block. I guess they were just as happy as me to see the sun again. 🌞

I just drink it cold most of the time but warm is good too. I prefer not to spice it. I just sip as is. Its sooo good but I learned as a kid not to go crazy on it. :lol:

I just pulled apple crisp from the oven too. I haven’t had time during the day; so I made it after everyone went to bed! Now time to snuggle Mooch on the couch before I get myself to bed!

yum! Did you have a piece before you went to bed?
maggiedemi maggiedemi Hoe's the peanut butter with white chocolate?

All day rain today but in a few days we'll have some all day sunny days! can't wait.

I have Granny Smiths with caramel dip, yum. Apples are so filling. I made a sammie
but put off eating it till later as I was very full.Sammie was southern fried chicken breast
on Italian bread, toasted, with mayo, very good.

I am leaving work a little early to vote. Not sure that is a positive since I'll probably be standing in line for hours. I am hoping the pouring rain will keep others home. :crossfingers:
Good luck! :goodluck: We went to early voting last week and it was well worth the wait since we wanted to vote in person. I agree that the rain will probably deter some people.

My positive is DH and I are getting our flu shot today. I know that may not sound like a positive to some people but friends and neighbors told me many of the places they went to for the shot ran out of it so glad we're getting it at my doctor. 👨‍⚕️

Maybe use one of those cinnamon sticks you can buy packs of at the store to stir it up? I'm not sure what other spices you'd add. I'll buy the packets you mix with hot water sometimes and the picture on the boxes always seem to have cinnamon sticks in them.
