Saturday Six Words and Sunday Shadow Shots! August 29-30, 2015

Some mornings must have hot chocolate!!
I love Mexican Hot Chocolate....
much better than coffee (for me).
But if you must have coffee.....
you could always make a Mexican Mocha!
Just put some Mexican cocoa mix in
your cup before adding the hot coffee.
It will put a bit of zip in your day! 

And here's a bit of sculpture whimsy
to add another type of spice to your day!
It's called the Diver and was created
by Candace Miller who is a local artist
in Dunsmuir, California.
You can see more of her art at this Link.
Meanwhile for even more entertainment
do go to Six Words and Sunday Shadows!
Have a great weekend!


  1. I've not had hot chocolate in years. Used to have it on cold morning often.

    Love the diver and the shadow.

    Have a fabulous day my friend. Big hugs to you and tons of scritches to Miss Lucy. ♥♥♥

  2. Mexican cocoa? Never heard of it, but I definitely want to try it.

  3. Yummy! Yummy! Yummy! Without the coffee please and it's perfect. x


  4. Nice shadow shot, but I must comment instead on your banner photo. I love clouds and that's an outstanding capture!

  5. It looks like she clapping for other divers!

  6. We had a big storm last night and I could use a strong cup of chocolate right now.

  7. Chocolate coffee is combining two of the best things in the world into one cup!

  8. These are so nice, love the second shot.

  9. Does Mexican chocolate taste different than American chocolate?

  10. Just LOVE that shadow - what fun!!!

  11. That is interesting.

  12. Anonymous2:16 AM

    Chili-infused dark chocolate...delicious.

  13. Wonderful shadow of the sculpture!!

  14. chockolate sounds like a good idea. And, such a fine shadow :)

  15. What an interesting piece of sculpture - and shadow. Will have to check out more of her work.

  16. I am a coffee freak. MUST. BE. REAL. COFFEE!!!
    Those clouds in your banner look like flying saucers :)

  17. For my birthday, I tried Mexican chocolate flavored ice-cream. A little too much bite for my taste, at least in a sweet. :-)

    Since the fall, I've been craving hot chocolate. It's a good comfort food, even in warm weather.

  18. I am a tea girl all the way, just like Jean-Luc Picard: Tea. Earl Grey. Hot. Though I don't like his glass cups; it has to be pottery (not china); and NO coloured insides - white, so I can see the strength of the tea. Besides, colours taste funny.


I love comments and will attempt to reply to each one. However, lately I have been getting "Unknown" comments that are linked to some sort of web page. I will never open this sort of comment and will immediately mark as spam. I am not interested in opening something that could be detrimental to my blog security etc. Never have enjoyed hackers! Thanks!
