Virtual Coffee Tuesday - It's a tad late today...

...but it's fine to have a decaf coffee after lunch... :)


Yes, I had my usual summertime salmon and salad, though I took a pic before I added the lemon mayo specially for Bodhi Chicklet... :)

It's after-lunch coffee today as I was getting a pedicure this morning...
It's a way to keep my feet healthy - a possible problem for diabetics - and it's very relaxing :)
I don't get a nail polish, instead Katherine gives me an extra-long massage on my feet and calves *sigh* 

After a relaxing hour, I was ready for my morning coffee, so I went here...

I hadn't been for a couple of months, and I discovered a nearby shop had gone from a local butchers to an old-fashioned sweet shop...
Now, given my body's aversion to sugar, you'd expect me to go right past... but a sign out front declared 'selected diabetic sweets'...


I couldn't believe it! They look and taste the same as regular jelly sweets - the mini cola bottles are my favourites!! - but you must have self-control, as the invert sugars they're made of are a natural laxative!! So be warned... :)

Well, I'm already talked out, so I'll just sit back and hear all your news of the past week... and do stop by Amy's to enjoy some more coffee chitchat :)

i am pretty sure i read in some scientific magazine that pedicures, coffee, sweet treats and extra long foot massages are the essential daily treatments for any health related issue! =) sounds like you had a wonderful morning and i applaud you for eating salmon midday. we love salmon but i only eat it for dinner!

Oh, dear, what a hoot! Thanks so much for sparing me the mayo! Jellies are one of our favorites here too. Invert sugars are laxative? Thanks for the warning and I could say that might explain a few things...

I have just discovered a most amazing massage therapist. I feel like a different person and already have my next appointment booked.

Pedicures are divine - I had one once. I am a little touchy about someone spending that much time on my feet, though. But the after-feeling is d-i-v-i-n-e. Thanks for coffee (and the lack of mayo)!
