From Tumblers to Travel Mugs

It is a whopping 68 degrees outside today. I’m glad that Autumn is finally here. As wonderful as Spring and Summer are, despite all that humid heat and the plethora of allergens, I prefer the Fall. There is something divinely serene about an Autumn evening, with the falling leaves and the chilly breeze.

It’s just so calm and inspiring to sit outside now. The mosquitoes aren’t eating me alive anymore because it’s getting to cold for them to be outside. My record for mosquitoes on me at a single time this summer was 8. That’s right. 8 little blood suckers on me at one time. You should see my legs. They are all scratched up and covered in welts.

But enough about my torn up legs. It’s hot chocolate season! Which is why I’m writing this post. I love hot chocolate. The only problem is that getting my hands on hot water is not going to be as easy filling up my water bottle while I’m at school.

Also I really want a new mug for my hot cocoa.

She is a proud fur-mommy to two lab/st-bernard littermates, a retriever-mix service dog, and one orange little hobgoblin cat, all of whom have made very audible appearances on the Booked All Night podcast.
