Eye Spy .. Something Soothing

Chocolate tower from here
I know that August has not been kind to Miss Waffler so I can so appreciate this theme, especially after my last week - not pretty! You know it is bad when you are actually looking forward to Monday so here are a few of my soothers.
So when life is getting you down, chocolate is always the answer and if you are still feeling shabby after your selection, that just means that you need to try harder.
I am not a natural sitter-arounder so soothing is something I need to work on. I have been surprised that hand sewing quilts has been really enjoyable (applique only), I thought it would be a real chore.
The cruel irony is the sometime soothing can also be the blood pressure riser to begin with, but I love taking a no where stroll with the kids, or reading a book with them, or enjoying whatever great ideas they have come up with.
Thanks to Aussie Waffler for her great theme for this week and I am hoping that Holly can help us out with next week's theme. You can join in anytime, just add your link after you have posted below so we can all find you and it doesn't matter what day of the week that you do it.

chocolate is always soothing, and the chocolate here tastes so much better then the stuff I could get in Canada.

Actually, I need no chocolate encouragement. Thank goodness you didn't post this last night when it would have taken the merest mention for me to hop, pyjama clad, in the car to go find me a fix...

Ooooooooh, a chocolate tower, yes a piece of super fine chocolate melting slowly on the tongue, rather soothing I have to say. Thanks for including me with Eye Spy for this week and you know what....tomorrow is the beginning of Super September, I can just feel it :) x

Life wouldnt be worth living if I didnt have a regular supply of soothing chocolate. In fact, I think I need some soothing right now.
