Morning thrifting went very well, with the aquisition of a stripy shirt, some black flats, and a maroon colored scarf, along with a silver candle holder. No good tea cups, though. Oh well.
I’m working on my wordcount. Its not bad. I’ve got about 500 more to do today to meet my target, and then I should have time to work out, before heading off to the family BBQ. I do love a cookout. Everything is so tasty!
Alright, 500 words. Lets do this! Come on Paris, lets go.

Wow! Where does one go to get literary encouragement pom-poms? I have a major writing deadline in a month and MILES to write before I get there!

For my fellow tea drinkers in the U.S. Happy 4th of July! I’m going to hunt down the best thrift store sales in the area, do my writing, and then go to visit my family and have the annual bbq.
And no work! Thats always a good thing.
Hopefully I shall have several cups of tea as well.

Sounds lovely! You’ll have to report on your thrifty finds!

drank Vanilla Comoro by Harney & Sons

Oh its been a long day. Many, many jobs to do, a lot to take care of, including work for two separate jobs, taking care of a friends canaries, ducks and cat, and then more work. And my work count.
I’m ready to relax. Vanilla Comoro is my go to relaxation tea, and its doing its job, a beautiful vanilla cloud.
At least, here in the states, tomorrow is a holiday, so I can get a lot of rest in.

I had a very long day myself, and can’t wait to rest tomorrow! And I agree that vanilla teas are the best kinds to unwind with. I’ve been meaning to try this H & S blend for a long time now, and I think this tasting note just inspired me to go for it!

Do it! It was so much better than expected :-)

Rosehips

One of my favs!

Its gonna be a long day!
I’ve got my morning shift, and then I have to go and tend to the morning session of animal care. I’m pet sitting two ducks, a parakeet, fifteen canaries and a cat.
The ducks are jerks.
Then I’ve got my Nanowrimo writing, and some work for one of my bosses, and working out, and then my evening class, and then collapse. Whew.
An easy tea is required.
This is also proof that you should give teas a chance. I love ginger, but am kinda meh on peach. If this hadnt been a gift from my boyfriend, I might never have had it, and yet I really, really like it now.

LOL how could the ducks be jerks? I guess I’m biased though because I grew up across the street from what I called “the duck pond” and I’ve always like ducks a lot.

Ducks and geese are certainly jerks in the wild, even when you’re trying to feed them. Biters! Lol.

mj

Haha I used to feed the ducks all the time and they never bit me. They were “wild” in that they did not belong to anyone but they did live in the middle of my neighborhood. Though, they were not pleased when I stole some ducklings and brought them home to live in my pool, understandably so (don’t judge too harshly, I was about 6 years old)

My mom used to tell about an “attack goose” that was highly protective of the young’uns in her family. Delivery men beware!

Taking a break from my writing, and drinking this before I need to go off to work.
This smells fantastic every time I open the tin. Its a delightful wiff of fruit. Perfect for a mid writing, pre working break.

KiwiDelight

I need to try cold-brewing this…

gmathis

Hope the writing is going well.

Rosehips

It is going well, thank you gmathis!

Today I am having this with a lighter steep and some milk, and its much more drinkable this way. Hooray, a way to drink a tea!
Its gonna be a busy day. Its my first day of pet sitting for a friend. I did this last year, taking care of the canaries, the ducks, the parakeet and the cat.
Busy!

drank Sakurambo by Lupicia

Wow. This was a sample from Lupicia. Huh.
This is savory. So, so savory. You really can taste rosemary in it, and the peppercorn too! How unusual.
I dont know if I’d want it in my cupboard forever, but its a fun experience now.

I really am almost out of nearly all my loose blacks. I’ve got to fix that.
Its gonna be a very busy day. Its the first day of Camp Nanowrimo, so I’m getting started on that. And I have an extra shift of work this evening. So it would be good to get right to the writing, and get as much done as I can.
I’m sticking with an unfussy, tasty tea to serve as my first pot of writer juice for this project.
Onward! To battle!

gmathis

Writer juice :) Love it.

I did not sleep well last night. No surprises, as it was 90 degrees in my house when I went to sleep, and it never really cooled down. And its going to be over 100 today.
Plus I’m a little sad. So I’ve got a cheerful breakfast, of english muffin, yougurt, local honey, and this tea. This pairs so beautiful with honey, its one of my favorite meals or snacks.
I doubt I’ll be drinking much tea today. Yeesh. Wish me luck.

Jennkay

Aw, sorry about your night, but your breakfast sounds delicious!

I am being bolder and trying more “plain” blacks. I’m a lover of flavored tea, but I can see that there is great deliciousness hiding about in their unflavored sisters.
So I picked this up. Its bagged, which is not super ideal, but I’ve liked what I’ve had from Steven Smith before, and am willing to put my tastebuds in his hands.
This is pretty good! I’m delighted with how smooth it is, and, while its not exactly sweet, it is light and refreshing and quite good indeed. I’ll enjoy having this, on the days I feel more like a classic cup of tea.

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.
