The label is really cool, I believe thats Hebrew, Greek, and maybe even German. The nutrition facts include "energy". I love it and it tastes so much better than the Hershey version especially since they've changed their recipe and it tastes very different and not so good as before.
He also obtained some lovely tea for us and I've enjoyed a cup of pure ceylon. I plan to have one this evening w/my book and knitting.
Off to finish knitting and checking in on some of my yahoo groups. I'll be back later. ;D

Friday 2/8 ~ I worked at the store from 11a-3p but before I got there the day started as a nightmare ~ murphy's law was in operation. I awoke w/a migraine, still had to do my hair, iron my clothes, dh called and said I'd have to go to work early then Sk8Chick came out of her room crying. I was starting to have a meltdown because during all this I was also trying to make myself breakfast but ended up burning the frying pan. Ugh! what a morning but it did finally calm down and get in order. Sk8Chick had done something to her calf muscle and it appeared to be poking out of the leg so we got it propped and iced to await dh's arrival. He rescheduled his appointment so I wouldn't have to go in early to allow me to finish my hair. When he arrived and examined her leg, decided we needed to take her to the doctor. She was already home from work on doctor's order for having a fever so she wasn't looking forward to going to the doctor 2 days in a row. I called in to work letting know I would be late, then I got ready, grabbed my excedrin, sneakers for later and left home. I arrived at work and found out we had a new assistant manager, lots of new stuff for sale and shipment waiting to be processed. Work went smooth enough and after 3hr I got a sandwich so I could take the excedrin migraine ~ it worked quickly and I was very grateful. I left work at 3p and headed to a concert. Yeah! That was t he best part of the day. We did merch for Casting Crown, Leeland and John Waller. I had a blast and can't wait for the next concert on the 29th. I hope to volunteer for that one too but don't know just yet. MercyMe is coming again and its alot of fun working w/them. We arrived home at 1a ~ Sk8Chick was able to work the concert too. The diagnosis was a really bad charlie horse results of low calcium and potassium in the system. Prescription ~ tums and bananas for a week. ;D

My other WIPs are languishing since I've not felt well and not motivated to work on them. I will get those Monkey socks done one day. I need to actually get my SI2M2 socks done, I've picked the pattern, I purchased some yarn but the yarn will not work with the pattern so I've got to get some more. I've found some to order and the seller does priority mail so I should have it next week and get cranking. I really wanted them done by next week so I could be working on the other goodies that go in the package but it didn't work out that way. Hmm...maybe I should change the pattern to match the yarn I have which would 1) save me $$, 2) allow me to get started tomorrow, and 3) keep w/my plan. I will be looking at sock patterns tonight. ;D
