A promise I am thankful for


The promise to share life leads to other promises.
In 2018, the promise to go together to Alaska was fulfilled.

Traci Smith, author of Faithful Families: Creating Sacred Moments at Home has provided a gift of the November 2018 Gratitude Every Day calendar. I am using it as an opportuity to revisit photos and post them as they speak to gratitude.

Ice cream, anyone?

Find the deal at the bottom of the page.

Today brought my first trip to Sweetie Fry ice cream shop in Cleveland Heights. On a hot and humid day, the peanut butter, coffee with caramel swirl, and French toast provided wonderful refreshment even if they did make for a fairly boring picture.

A variety of traditional and unique flavors fill the menu. Sorbets and sherbets also appear. The heat proved a bit much to order the fries although all reports affirm them as quite fine.

Sweetie Fry recently made it to the semi-finals of The Plain Dealer’s Ice Cream Playoffs. Friends of the owner voted – friends of mine voted.

That brings me to the deal. Should you and I ever be in Cleveland Heights at the same time, let me know. I will get you to Sweetie Fry and allow you the pleasure of buying me some great ice cream.

See you along the Trail.

I is for Imagine

Should you develop a jones for ice cream,
or many other treats
simply stop by the Cantina
where you can find your fill of sweets.

Of course you cannot see any ice cream
in this photo; the corner of the shake machine,
but no ice cream.

That’s why the word is “imagine.”

Negative calories?

I had some Ben and Jerry‘s ice cream last night.

I did not pay close enough attention to what I purchased. Nor did I notice when I served it.

My first taste brought a delightful coffee flavor. I then checked the label: Coffee Heath Bar Crunch.

Reading the label more carefully I realized that the flavor derives from Fair Trade Certified™ coffee extract.

That got me to thinking: such ice cream must have negative calories, right?

If so, or if not – I recommend it highly!

See you along the Trail.
