2903 Tasting Notes
Whew! Hi everyone! I hope everyone is having a great late autumn/early winter/ start of the holidays.
I am running like nuts- in fact I am about to start out on a huge trip! I am entirely freaking out.
I’ll tell you all about it when I get home, but sufficient to say it’s one of the trips I’ve always wanted to take, and I am excited and terrified.
But first, tea.
So Saturday I was felled my a mighty migraine, which had me sleeping and unable to eat all day.
I am much better now, but my sleep has been screwed up. Daylight savings time is probably not helping, either.
This is day two of waking up at least an hour before my alarm, which is not great. I am really, really busy at work (some stress there), and I have a huge trip coming up in two weeks that I need to prepare for.
Help me, cup of tea, you are my only hope.
It’s been a weird week.
Last night, in a completely round about and accidental way I learned that my ex had got married recently.
This is not bad news! We broke up years ago, it was a very sad break up, but it was for the best, and he and I are still friendly. I’ve known about his girlfriend for ages, and I’ve always wanted him to have all he wants in life.
But it’s still an odd sensation. I was with him for the better part of a decade, and there was a long time that I thought that would be our future. I don’t regret anything about our relationship, or our break up, but it’s still something that has knocked me a bit unbalanced.
Oh, adulthood. There are a few weird nuggets in it, arn’t there? And emotions are weird!
But, there is tea. Yum. It’s finally cold enough to really get relaxed when I drink a cup of tea. We are heading into my favorite time of the year.
Its been a crazy few weeks, and yesterday ended in a client yelling at me. Sigh.
Also Daylight Savings Time is annoying me. I used to like the autumn adjustment best, but now I find I cant stay asleep all the time I should be asleep. Bleh.
But this morning it is raining, huge, satisfying rain.
This is an apple cinnamon tea, which is pretty nicely balanced between the apple and the cinnamon. Thats great, as I don’t want the cinnamon to overwhelm.
A nice cup of tea and some rain will do a lot towards making this week ok.
So after the week of hundred degree temperature, it then turned dramatically colder, and it has been raining buckets for the last two days.
I almost could not see on my way home yesterday, and was carrying a flashlight around, in case the power went out.
A perfect time to drink the first cup of Boston of the season.
Ahh, thats the stuff.
