Day 7 of 30 in our 2018 NaNoWriMo & November Poem-A-Day (NovPAD) challenges. And … day after midterms.

Today is National Bittersweet Chocolate with Almonds Day  – did you know that40% of the world’s almonds end up in chocolate? There are many different candies that feature almonds – although the only one I can’t thank of today is “Mounds” Is “turtles” made with almonds …  or is it just pecans?

ForPoetry Potion’sPoem-A-Day Challenge,  Day 7’s prompt is “the owl and the goat”
