1858 Tasting Notes
Today is the anniversary of something rather hard in my life. I’m feeling quite sad about it still, and I’m all alone this weekend, friends and family being pretty far flung.
So its a be-nice-to-myself day. I started off with a pot of this glorious tea creation, went to get my hair cut, and ran a bunch of fun errands, buying holiday body products and about a million books. I went to every used book shop in the city, and Barns and Nobel too.
I just cooked myself a nice dinner, with a nice glass of wine. After dinner teas will start soon, and then a Skype date with my best friend.
Its actually been pretty nice today.
Tea of the morning, and I underleafed it. Drat!
Its been a crazy morning. The finishing up the application/background check stuff for my new position is proving extra tricky in one respect, which will eat up my lunch break today, which is annoying, as I have other things that need to be done urgently. Grrr.
And I’ve just learned that the current job is moving, which we the staff were not informed about, until the Realtor just showed up.
Argh! This might force my hand into giving notice, though I really don’t want to do that before I get the official go ahead from the new job.
Done so far today – first shift of work, workout, grocery shopping, and 600 words on the novel. I’m trying to get the writing in before I have to go to second shift of work, and, if I’m diligent, I probably can.
I love a cup of tea while I’m writing. It helps me focus.
This is a very gentle cup, which is the perfect chaser from the bold tea I drank first thing this morning.
Its also a sipdown, which is great, as I’ve got a lot of winter/holiday teas coming in soon.
Today a calming, comfortable cup.
I’m so busy! I’ve got a bunch of documents to submit to do for the new job (which I’m going through a background check for), I’ve got my current job’s duties, and then I have some work trainings to take tonight for my part time job. That can be done online, which is lovely, as I can drink a cup of tea while I do it, but still.
Sheesh. Plus Nanowrimo!
I can’t wait till things get less busy.
Tea of the morning!
I’ve got such a lot to do.
In addition to being in the middle of Nanowrimo (and on track, thank you very much), I’m also running around finishing up paperwork for my new job, and still doing all the duties of the current job. Sheesh.
So I wake up in need of power! And power I shall have, in the form of this most autumnal of my teas. Yum!
Sunday! And what a lovely Sunday.
I went to yoga (the one low point- a substitute instructor, who was nowhere near as good as our usual ones.), then ran a bunch of errands. I’m a weird one who loves going grocery shopping, and I made an appearance at Target as well.
I’m halfway through Nanowrimo! On track and ready to go! I’m really pleased.
This was a perfect tea for the day- so soft and warm and lovely. I love Glitter and Gold. I only ever get it in the fall and winter, as it just seems like the right sort of flavor for it.
