As I watched the girls play behind the church after the board meeting, I noticed that the city lights in three directions reflected off the low hanging clouds in a flame red (yellow to red fading into black). On the fourth side it was green and blue similar to the aurora-borealis but without the spectacular dance of the Northern lights.
Soft red glow of city lights
We made a short stop by the grocery store and with the lack of people I noticed the center displays a little bit more. Okay! Maybe it was because I was hungry and the display was all about Traditional Christmas candy. I was so focused on the walking by the temptation that I walked right by the row that I was aiming for. With a little prayer, God gave me the saving grace to be able see the candy and not fall into desperate cravings.
Tackling Tasty Temptations
Then on another end-cap was a display of these tiny (2oz) bare honey containers. Yes, another fetish of mine is cute containers. This cute little guy from the tip of his toes to the top of his Santa cap is only 4.25 inches or 11 centimeters.
Just in case you want him for a stocking stuffer, I got him at Cash Wise in St. Cloud in the organic food section. The tag says, "Distributed by Bare Honey, 1064 Gervais Ave, Maplewood, MN 55109."
I am an eclectic person. I’ve broken the mold for the stereotype of what an accountant is like (as an accountant with a very creative side). I LOVE to challenge what “always has been”. Let’s look at things and think about them. Is there a "better" out there that we have missed because “it’s always been this way”? “Live, Laugh and Love” is one of my mottos. There is so much beauty in life we just need to stop and appreciate it. “Dance like no one is watching!” because the music in your head doesn’t match what’s playing for anyone else. :^)
