Chocolate-Covered Blueberries, Good Hand Lotion, and Tulips

This week's Three Beautiful Things:

1.  Dark chocolate-covered blueberries.  Yes, blueberries are nature's candy, and they don't need the chocolate to be delicious, but wow it is an unexpected and beautiful pairing.  Perhaps a little too addictive to have such a large bag in my kitchen.

2.  My hands have been dry and cracked since the start of the Winter, as they always are this time of year, despite my efforts to keep them moisturized.  I put on some new lotion that I received in my Christmas stocking, and lo!  The cracks went away!  I couldn't believe it.  So thank you thank you Em for giving me this cream!

3.  Bright pink tulips on my dining room table.  It's time to start keeping flowers in the house, to remind me that one day in the not-too-distant future, flowers will appear in the ground again.  It's an important reminder to have when the ground still has three feet of snow on it, with another foot expected today.

  3. Oh Mary...a woman after my own heart. Chocolate covered blueberries...YUM! So New England of you :) Have you tried....
    chocolate covered cranberries from Nantucket? I am so thankful I can only find them there. I inhale these whenever I come home.
