Very, very sad day
I'm so upset due to the terror attacks in Oslo and Norway today. It's absolutely unbelievable that something like this can happen, and frankly, it feels rather close to home.
So I'm watching CNN and Norwegian television, and snacking, a lot. And that brings me to Blogging By Mail, a wonderful event organized by Stephanie where bloggers around the world send each other packages. I got mine from sweet Esme at Chocolate & Croissants, who went a little crazy at Trader Joe's! I got all sorts of goodies - brown rice crispy treats, salt water taffy, maple cookies, sun-dried tomatoes, dried cranberries, pineapple chips, caramel popcorn, roasted green chilies, taco mix and a grinder with coffee, chocolate and sugar. Amazing.
And such good timing, because on days like these, you appreciate the good people of the world even more. Thank you Esme, thank you Stephanie.
And thank you, all my friends from all over the world. I'm so happy you exist, and I hope you are safe and sound and will never be touched by horrendous events.
