Hot Chocolate Morning

Thursdays are not running days, and frankly, I look forward to them with all my lazy heart. Running is a huge part of my life, but it is sort of like washing my hair: necessary but not necessarily fun. There are many mornings when I look for any excuse to stay home, and many days I actually find that excuse. Today, however, needing no excuse because it is not a running day, here I set, still in my robe and socks, poking about on the computer and making the first hot chocolate of the season. All with no guilt! Isn't that awesome? I collect hot chocolate, so today it is Cadbury's Drinking Chocolate, from the British section of my local supermarket, and in honor of all things British, especially my pal Dawn, who I'm thinking of today. I have no idea if actual British people even like Cadbury's or if it is considered a tourist export for us poor Anglophiles. Regardless, I like it. It is a nice round-tasting hot chocolate and it doesn't get bitter if you add more mix to your milk. There is just enough of a perfect Autumn chill in the air today to make the creamy warmth taste just right, all while sending a chocolately glow to my chilly fingers and toes and making me feel cozy and cheerful.

May you have a Hot Chocolate Morning soon and enjoy the change of the seasons!


  1. Ooh. You're making me really want some hot chocolate.

  2. I woke up this morning, with Hot Chocolate on the brain. My thought was... "I should wake up before the kids every day this winter and make a cup of hot coco for myself. Then that led to... I should let the kids have hot coco for breakfast in the winter. Then my mind went to my sisters lecture on Sugar, and it wasn't any fun anymore. LOL!! Sorry, for the long comment, but you know me. :-)

  3. Mmmmm! I'm so happy for hot chocolate weather again. I think I'll make some... like right now!:)

  4. yes yes. I think the same cold snap was felt across the country. although I confess that I drink hot cocoa straight through summer (since in does cool down here). But it feels great to drink it when the weather is perfect for it.

    I've never tried Cadbury's. You should post a listing of all your chocolate drinks. That would be a great entry for that chocolate blog idea... : )

  5. I feel the same way about all my workouts. I like to do it, it's part of my life, but when it comes down to the minute, I'd rather not. ugh. So much effort and showering after and whatnot. The hot chocolate sounds heavenly.
