There are days when I realize that I am seriously warped. I think we are all shaped by where we live and where we grew up, and for me, that’s in the hot section of California. (I mean, its all the hot section, but still).
So I say ridiculous things like “oooh, only going to be 96 degrees today! its cooling down!” and today is such a day of madness.
So, while its still below 80, I’m quickly drinking tea, and dreaming of autumn.

Quick cup before heading back into the fray.
I’ve liked this before, but today its not behaving. I think its because the tea is in the bottom of the pouch, and the fruit stuff has gone up to the top, diluting the brew.
But I hold out hope- it may be better soon!

Despite my new influx of fall teas, I’m still working on sipping down some of my less beloved teas.
That, and its going to be 106 today, so forget fall flavors.
This is one of my bagged teas. In my life, there are some mornings when there is nothing for it but to have a quick bagged tea, and moving on.
This, alas, is not my favorite bagged tea. Its a serviceable floral earl grey, but I’m not in love.
Still, it served its purpose this morning!

It was supposed to be a slower morning, but nooooo.
So a quick cup of tea, and, better yet, a sipdown!
I won’t miss this tea, though it was a perfectly acceptable brew. Nothing wrong with it, but nothing particularly special either. Ah well!
Off you go, Celebration Tea, and a Sipdown for me!

The Celebration sipdown sounds celebratory indeed.

drank Paris by Harney & Sons

Paris and Boston are battling for dominance in my cupboard. Ha! Who will be the victor? Well, me, obviously, with these two delicious teas to drink.
Its going to be 103 today, so my dreams of autumn are gone. And its back to work after a 3 day weekend. And I have a cold. Hurrah.

Hope you feel better! Staying well-hydrated with tea is a great plan of attack along with rest.

I didn’t sleep well last night. Stupid bad dreams, causing problems! Gah!
And even though its an extra day off work today, there is a massive sale going on at Goodwill, so I’m waking up and getting ready as early as if it was a work day.
I love thrift stores. They’re easily my favorite shops, and I look for them wherever I go.
Sure, I strike out every once in a while, but I’ve bought books and ballgowns at thrift stores. My favorite clothing items I own have come from the Goodwill, and my house has got some very eclectic and wonderful things, bought for $1.50.
So I’m excited. The only thing better than a thrift shop is a thrift shop on half price day!

Love our local Goodwill!

Sorry about your bad night but I hope the Goodwill sale will make up for it!

drank Ginger Tea by Harney & Sons

I do not feel quite the thing tonight. My stomach is upset, and I’m out of sorts.
Its been a while since I had this tea, so I’m pleased to dust it off and pour myself a cup of solid ginger. Good ginger, tasty ginger. Make me feel better!

Saturday! And a fun one, too. I’m off t an Anime Convention today, which is always good fun, and I am excited to go.
Significant other has a number of panels, games tournaments, and other such things that he wants to participate in, and I can’t wait to see the art in the vendors halls. I always seem to come back with a new picture.
I need to be fully energized, so thank you, Boston, for helping me out.

I had a phone interview today, with the HR department for the job I informally interviewed for on Tuesday. If they like my answers here I’ll get an in person interview.
So, I thought, as that interview went well, why not start the day the same way, with a freshly brewed pot of this lovely blend?
Maybe Paris tea will be my lucky charm tea for job hunting. I hope so!
Fingers crossed, this sounds like a good position. I like my current job, but I think its time to move on to new challenges!

I am so close to a sipdown, I can taste victory!
But in the meantime I will taste this tea, which is pleasant, but nothing special, and will not be a repeat visitor.

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.
