Ugh. I had some very intense dreams last night- not exactly nightmares, but certainly more intense than usual, and its left me somewhat edgy all day.
It doesn’t help that its 97 degrees today, and I’m fighting off a cold at the same time! Blargh! Colds are terrible, especially when its hot out.
So an old reliable tea is called for. I wish I had some more now!

It wasn’t a very good weekend, I’m afraid.
Firstly, I didn’t get the job I was interviewing for. I’m disappointed, but not gutted. Everyone else in my life seems to be taking this much harder than I am. (“But you’d be perfect for it!” they wail. Not perfect enough apparently! Thats ok!)
I also royally screwed up something I was supposed to go this weekend. I was supposed to feed a friends ducks, and I completely forgot until he called. Fortunately everyone survived, and he was more worried about me than the ducks, but I’m going to feel terrible about that forever.
Ugh. Maybe this week will be better.
Comforting tea today. Warm and blanket like. A bit silly, as its going to be 95 degrees today, but even so.

Oh, how frustrating. I’m sorry about the job, but am happy you’re mostly taking it in stride. It’s so easy to glorify missed opportunities when in reality, we don’t know how things would have unfolded. Love blanket-teas!

Its the birthday of my little niece! Hurrah, little one! Another amazing year.
I remember drinking this least year on her birthday, and so I thought I’d do it again this year. Maybe a tradition is born?
This is soft, warm, comfortable. A hug in a tea pot. One of my favorite cold weather teas. I expect cinnamon teas to be somehow bolder, but this is just the delicate warmth I really want when I think cinnamon tea.
Yum.

Backlogged from yesterday.
I am normally crazy busy on Thursdays, but yesterday was even worse. I had an extra shift in the middle of it, and I was just flattened by the end of the day.
This was, alas, my only cup of tea. This tasty, brisk, and strong. A good get up and go kinda tea.

eep!

I am sleepy this morning, but have a little time to putter about this morning, which will help me wake up.
I remember being very fond of this last year, with its creamy fruitiness. Its still pleasant, but somehow less lush and delicious today. Hmm.
Still, enjoyable!

I had this one today too!

I could not get my act together this morning, and was running a little late. Fortunately this is the day where that could work, but still! Frustrating!
This is a very calming tea. One of my “wrapped in a cozy sweater” teas. A calming influence on my morning!

I have apparently been involved in somnambulism combat, as I woke up today with my knuckles scraped all along one hand. Did I hit the wall? Did I fend off dream warriors? What? Come on, hands, whats up?
And this morning was no great success. I managed to dump my full strainer of this (removed from the pot, after tea had been brewed) onto the kitchen floor/my foot. Ugh.
Lets hope the rest of Monday goes smoothly.

I hope the rest of the day goes better for you too!

drank Boston Blend by Harney & Sons

We had a thunderstorm last night, the sky cracked open and poured out rain. It was wonderful.
Rain is my favorite weather, and thunderstorms are even better. So this morning, even though the clouds have thinned, I wanted a cup of tea that evokes the autumn.
This is the season for Boston, when the air is crisp and the leaves are falling. A perfect tea pairing- autumn and Boston.

Fjellrev

Totally the perfect season for Boston.

Today is much better. I’m calmer, and, while still nervous about the future, but we’re working on our things.
I really wanted this today, and am so glad I had it on hand. I’ll miss it when I’ve finished my tin!

I knew Steepster was the best of people. Thank you for all your kind thoughts yesterday- we’re working on it. I can’t remember ever being this nervous before, but we’re gonna work on it.
Its my busiest day of the week. I’m running from dawn till dusk, and then some. Maybe high paced action will keep my mind sane.
As it it, I need a powerful tea.
Kandy is very strong, almost too strong, if left in the cup too long. But its briskness and power gets me out the door, so thats good!

Good to hear. Hang in there! Keeping busy is probably the best thing you can do for yourself.

I love tea! I confess that I was a hot chocolate lover for most of my life, but recently a switch has gone off in my brain, and suggested that I might just love tea. And I do!
I’m a bit of a novice, but an enthusiastic one, and am happily sipping new varieties all the time.
I love vanilla, fruity, and caramel flavors, and cant wait to try more.
