I went to a sewing night last night. I’m excited, I’ve got a few patterns I want to make, and some costumes I want to do, and I’ve just been a bit too lazy to do it, so this is turning into an excellent thing to make me actually get some things done.
I need to go buy fabric!
I got to sleep in a bit this morning, which was glorious. Hooray sleep.
This is a bit less citrus-y than usual, but I don’t mind at all. Its still quite nice.

Ooh, what kinds of things do you sew?

I’m learning, but I’ve sewn a few dresses. I’m working up to historical costuming.

I cant readily remember when I had a quiet weekend. Eeesh. So it means that Monday rolls around and I wonder what the hell happened. Where did my weekend go?
And its too early. Bleh.
I keep hoping its going to be fall, but it stays hot around here. Not a fan.

Weekends are NEVER long enough. I totally feel you.

I live in trepidation. I have not heard if I’m going to have a receptionist in this morning class. And you really, really need one to run the class. I don’t know what I will do without it. Eeep.
So, lots of good tea, to optimize me. I don’t operate correctly without it!
I think that this is starting to get slightly old. Its not as powerful as once it was. But I’ve owned this particular pound of tea for almost a year, so that might be the reason.

About half the time I wake up on Friday convinced it is Saturday. Luckily my alarm disagrees.
Ugh. I wish it was Saturday.
This is very citrus-y this morning, which is very nice. And the black tea is giving a good oomph, which is also good, as I need it. I live two blocks away from the local fair, and so it means its noisy. Ugh.

It was hectic for the morning session of work. One of our clerks is not coming in, the other did not bring what she needed to run the class, so we had to cobble things together, all while I’m trying to get out the door.
Sheesh. People are completely nuts sometimes.
So, my reward is this, and some hot toast with local honey on it. I’ve got a lot of work to do today. Whew. Regular tea will be drunk.

Pre morning class, frantically running around cup of tea. Hurrah.
My boyfriend was wise to give me this. Its great, when you want something tasty, not exceptional, and quick. This will do it!

I did not sleep well. Tossing, turning, strange dreams (not quite nightmares, but unsettling or upsetting, or just flat out strange.)
So now I’m up, and have brewed an entire pot of this.
It gotta have vanilla in it. It just has to! Its so creamy. And the fig adds a lovely earthiness to it, and the lemon keeps it from becoming too dark and heavy. I ate cereal with this, but next time with hot buttered toast. That would be delicious.

Blacklog from last night.
I was watching Marx Brothers movies last night, so needed a cheerful drink.
I love that this turns screaming pink. I find it amusing. It pairs well with a black and white film.

I had to pry myself out of my book to go to work today, and now I’m going to settle back in. (reading Old Man’s War, but John Scalzi). So tea, the beverage of readers everywhere, is needed.
This will do. I’m not going to buy more of this, but its not going to be a problem to drink it down.

The Harney effect. Even when its not a tea that I would buy on my own (this was a sample with a recent order), I still enjoy it, and think it is a good tea.
Not as cinnamon-y as it smells, which is good, as the smell of cinnamon is quite strong indeed.
But I enjoy it. I should have saved it for a cold fall day. That would have been perfect.

The Harney Effect—wouldn’t that be a great book or article title?

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.
