Tasks for St. Martin’s Day: Write a Mother Goose-style rhyme or a limerick; the funnier the better. –OR– Take a picture of the book you’re currently reading, next to a glass of wine, or the drink of your choice, with or without a fire in the background.
Tasks for Newtonmas: Take a moment to appreciate gravity and the laws of motion. If there’s snow outside, have a snowball fight with a friend or a member of your family. –OR– Take some time out to enjoy the alchemical goodness of a hot toddy or chocolate or any drink that relies on basic chemistry/alchemy (coffee with cream or sugar / tea with milk or sugar or lemon, etc.). Post a picture of your libations and the recipe if it’s unique and you’re ok with sharing it.
I decided to combine these two into one for a late candlelight breakfast this morning:
The drink is white hot chocolate; a gift from my BFF from our trip to London back in June. Basically, it just calls for the white chocolate powder to be mixed into hot milk ... my mom, however, had the brilliant of very alchemically correct idea of adding a pinch of ground (or instant) coffee.
