Bisquito loves chocolate

Filed under: — Aprille @ 3:13 pm

To be upfront:  I like chocolate, but I don’t love chocolate.  Generally speaking, I’d choose a fruit dessert or something vanilla or caramel over chocolate.  I’ll eat it if it’s around, but I’m not one of those people who needs it every day or even every week.

However, I was still kind of hungry after lunch today, and in the mood for something sweet, so I went down to CVS and picked up some dark Lindt chocolate with orange and almond slivers.  It looked kind of interesting.  I ate about half of it, and it was good.

I had forgotten that today is ice cream day.  Once a year, the directors at work hire an ice cream truck and treat everybody to our choice of frozen delights.  Almost everything had chocolate in it, so I ended up with a chocolate-covered ice cream bar.  What am I going to do, turn down a free treat?  I don’t think so.

I have since come to the conclusion that Bisqui loves chocolate.  He/she has been wiggly ever since I had my snacks this afternoon, and this is not normally an active time for him/her.  It reminds me of when Denny and I had the liquid-center chocolate cake last weekend:  kick city.

Now I know what flavor cupcake he/she will get to dive into on his/her first birthday.  Chocolate makes for better pictures anyway.

Denny and I continue to optimistically plan a long weekend getaway pre-baby…but constraints are emerging. We’re going to have a 6-week childbirth class that meets on Saturdays starting mid-October, and by the time that’s over, I might not feel up to doing anything too exciting, plus I’ll be getting close to that third-trimester time when airlines sometimes get fussy about dames like me flying. I might have to get a seatbelt extender. Weird. Actually probably not, since airplane seatbelts sit pretty low. But anyway…

A current consideration is the northern Arizona area. I’ve never been to the Grand Canyon, and there’s a hotel in Winslow that Denny loves, and Allegiant Air could fly us to Phoenix pretty cheap. It would mean some driving time, but that’s probably okay. Also, there appear to be some coollooking archaeological parks in the area, and I’m a sucker for that kind of thing.

Also, October/November in Arizona sounds better than October/November in Quebec. I still want to hit Montreal/Quebec City, but maybe not just yet.

Any Arizona lovers out there? Linds, I remember you saying something before about the Sedona area; are you familiar with other parts of that general locale?  Scott, can you speak for your new home turf?
