Just Jot January – 2022

Today’s prompt is Chocolate. Thanks, Ritu! My husband used to work for Guittard Chocolate as a maintenance mechanic. That meant he had to fix the different machines they had to melt, mix and package the chocolate. He would come home smelling absolutely scrumptious! That is the job he held when he hurt his back at work moving one of the big machine parts. We didn’t get too many free samples though.

The Bloganuary prompt is to list 5 things I am grateful for.

  1. I am grateful my daughter is recovering well from her surgery.
  2. I am grateful that I got 2 Etsy orders already this year.
  3. I am grateful that my mom got to come and visit us for Christmas because she is now in the hospital.
  4. I am grateful that we all tested negative for Covid.
  5. I am grateful that I can still post on WP without using photos.

Short and sweet.

  1. No free chocolate samples?! That would be so disappointing smelling those delicious smells all day and not be rewarded with extra chocolatey treats.
    Wonderful gratitude list.

    1. Right? When he was working for the coffee company before they closed he was bringing home free coffee and other things all the time. It was sticker shock when we had to purchase coffee again!

  2. I guess if he had got free samples they would have had to be giving away a lot of samples but maybe now and again wouldn't have hurt. Hope our Mum is ok.

    1. True but the threw away a lot of stuff too, or fed it to the pigs. Mom is hanging on but it is not looking good. Thanks for the positive thoughts.

  3. To be grateful about things during tough times is a measure of one's sweet soul


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
