This & That Including What Ails

To Market, To Market

on November 28, 2015

I don’t have much of a chance to snooze in these days.

No luck in slumbering past 6.45am daily. Sigh! I envy those who can lull in bed till noon or later.

Today was my usual affair at the hospital. Had a great chat with the phlebo lady.

Drats! Veins refused to cooperate with her and now I’ve got 3 big bruises. I feel like such a hero ha ha!

I told her just go for my survival vein. Surely that one will give her 2 vials of bloodπŸ˜‰

Off I then trotted to the supermarket.

I need groceries. Also to check out Christmas goodies. This is the season to see the wide range of cookies, chocolates, candy canes and teddy bears.

Candy canes up a notch with new flavors. Root beer, Sgt Pepper’s, cranberry, grape etc. My nephew loves these.

Gone are the traditional minty flavors as the fruity ones got the interest of the new generation.

Almond Rocca, the traditional treat has reinvented itself with a thin sliced version of Almond Rocca.

Royal Dansk butter cookies has changed its traditional range to include cranberry ginger, grape and cherry cookies in quaint little “holly hobbie” feel like tins.

I saw white cocoa packs for the first time.

Lots to see.

Lots to ooh and aah over.

Lots to buy.

Lots to wonder what the tastes are.

Sadly, eyes see, stomach wants but I only have one tummy and a calorie counter!

Dang it!! I wish I can gobble like a turkey, not get fat.

Still thank goodness I ain’t a turkey during thanksgiving πŸ˜‰πŸ˜„πŸ˜„
