Two Things

"You finished two things you love today."
Says husband nonchalantly as I tossed the empty container of Trader Joe's dark chocolate covered almonds into the recycling.

 As it happened, the dark chocolate almonds love started when husband and I had made a road trip-preparation run to Trader Joe's and haggled over preferred snacks for our drive through the night to NC.
The dark chocolate covered almonds were one of my acquisitions.

Be prepared for more Trader Joe's lovin here.
We're falling more and more for the place.
The dark chocolate almonds, oh you have to try them.

The second thing I finished today was the last book of Harry Potter!
I closed the book with so many feelings, none of which I could find the right words for.
A text to Kirra was enough to know that our next coffee date is going to be wonderfully heavy on the side of tales of Harry, Hermoine, the Weasleys, and Dumbledore.
Such a good story.

I felt the closing of such a journey, thousands and thousands of pages and a few months, occasioned the atmosphere of one of our favorite coffee lounges.
It was a good choice, a good ending.

So, two things.
Trader Joe's dark chocolate covered almonds and the Harry Potter series.
I love.
Do you?
Might you?

Oh how I love Trader Joes! They have a great frozen orange chicken, and when I feel like cutting the corners, a great microwavable jasmine rice! Add some broccoli and fresh pineapple and there's a great dinner!! My list of favorite TJ things goes on and on!
