The words for today’s Photo A Day – December is Hot beverage. I didn’t think I was going to have a problem with that since I drink plenty of cups of tea each day. Today was no exception but
a tea cup at work didn’t feel worthy, somehow, for the #yarnpadc. Then a golden opportunity opened up. Actually it started very sad, I found out today I didn’t get a job I applied for that I think I would be very good at, so I was quite down and sad and also, I must admit, a bit cynical and bitter. Then I went for lunch with a friend, a friend who, like me, enjoys marzipan. When she suggested we had some hot chocolate and a marzipan pig for dessert, I immediately jumped at the idea.
The hot chocolate thus became my photo of the day, with the little marzipan pigs in the background. There is even a heart in the chocolate! After this lunch, I was still a little sad but not as cynical and bitter as before. See what a hot beverage can do!
Tonight I’ve knit at a concert and the man next to me obliviously quoted Ibsen, but I’ll talk about that some other day, tomorrow morning the alarm clock will go off at 4 am (not for me, thank goodness, but inside my apartment which is bad enough) so I really need to go to bed now.
