After a traveling ordeal which ended 60 hours later with us getting home (at least I am thankful for that), we are without luggage. ALL that’s important to us is in those suitcases. power cords, medications, three weeks forth of clothing…

anyway, I am home and I am alive, for which I am thankful. But I am cold, starving and exhausted. Can’t go anywhere until we chip away three weeks worth of snow that’s now frozen. Somehow have to make it to work tomorrow on whatever fumes I have left in me. Not in my car, in ME!.

So I made a pot of this. It’s gotta be good if you reach for it after weeks of deprivation, right? :) I sweetened it. Got nothing else I can put inside (unless curdled cream is your fancy) but it is so good. It raises my blood sugar enough that I don’t feel I’m going to pass out from exhaustion anymore.

Now I have to deal with more pressing problems. Happy 2014 everyone!

EDIT: I am not sure this is going to work but this is a shot of pearson this morning. There are THOUSANDS of unclaimed luggage. all the cancelled flights’ luggage being sent back, plus all the passengers who made it somehow, their luggage. there is not enough staff to deal with it all and some aircraft is frozen so the bags cannot be obtained. anyway, for your entertainment… hope it works.

My gosh, what an ordeal! I do hope you get your luggage, because that’s such a stressful experience, and you get hit with a fresh wave of panic every time you remember yet another thing that you don’t have until you find it. Yikes. I’m so glad you like this tea, though. I should try mine very soon.

How awful! I, too, hope that your luggage soon returns to you.

Luggages are a problem obviously, but I am so happy you are home finally. If I was closer, I’d give you a hand (though a small one!) with the shovelling part :-)

Nxtdoor

thanks for the kind words you guys! or gals, more like it.

JustJames

oh no! hope it all sorts out!!

Stephanie

Ooh, sounds rough :/

Nxtdoor

hah. Trudeau’s twitpic could have been mine. And he wasn’t even there. Bah.

Sympathies, travelling and the weather… Memories. It once took us 4 hours to push off the gate in Montreal. First the gate was frozen, then not one but two AC got stuck behind us then we had to deice twice!. Nothing you can really do about it, just pray that everyone is a patient lot. The worst is when your stuck on the tarmac waiting for your gate to clear which could be minutes could be hours, with no way to get fresh catering and trying to keep passengers in the seats so you can move when your given permission. If it gets too cold nothing works, the baggage equipment freezes, the waterlines freeze etc. Altogether not fun. Glad you got home safely. My friends house has once again lost power after being out for more than 72 hours the last time! Hope you had a blast in Romania though.

Please don’t turn into an icicle. <3

(Or would it be a tea-sicle?)

Anna

(Oh NO, that looks so much like another word. I’m just going to be quiet now.)

Nxtdoor

LOL.

@yyz Yes, we were on the tarmac for over an hour after finally being able to land. All the troubles you mentioned, we experienced. Thankfully our house was ok and we were able to get warm and sleep a bit. ANyway, that’s enough of this saga. Thanks again everyone!

Bio

Im a fairly recent follower of the loose leaf tea drinking cult. March 2013 to be exact. Never been much into tea before. Growing up in Romania, tea was something mom made for you when you were sick. As an adult, my hot beverage of choice has been coffee, both flavoured and regular. I’ve recently stumbled upon Teavana and DAVIDs TEA and quickly got addicted to the latter. Then came steepster and all else followed.

Formerly a mathematician and insurance adjuster, I gave up the corporate world and am now a professional chef. I drink wine and sometimes cheat on it with tea.

I prefer flavoured teas. It’s probably the newbie in me. I just don’t get cravings for a straight black tea. If I end up having one, I drop in a slice of lemon and artificial rum flavouring (ugh, what moron admits to this?). A black tea fixed this way reminds me of skating at an outdoor rink as a young one, with a thermos full of tea made just as I described..

Im learning so I drink them all. everything! Am even introducing myself to pu’erh. So far I can do fine with the sheng cause frankly, they don’t taste like pu’erh to me. The shou is another story.

NOTE: The virtual cupboard does NOT contain any of the samples I hold since most of them are one-cup quantity. Home improvements, mortgage, travel, wine and food have budget priority over tea.
