Its been a long week. Thank goodness it is Friday.
So, then its time for a beloved tea. Ever have one of those days, when its time to just pull out one of the favorites? This is one.
This is wonderful. I say that every time but I don’t seem to be losing any enthusiasm for it.
Yum. Ok, Friday, lets do this.

Backlogged from this morning.
I swear, if one more person calls me today about various things, I’m going to just start an advice column to put it all in one place.
Its been that kinda day.

I could not stay asleep, which is annoying, as today is the one day I get to sleep in.
Lots to do in the next few days, compounded by the fact that it is Camp Nanowrimo! Yes, Nanowrimo is now three times a year, and I always do it. I’ll maybe use this morning time to start off the new book!


Wait what!? NaNo is three times a year now!? When did that happen???!? :O When is it then every year? And is the prize the same?


Three times! April, June and November! April and June are “camp” though, with moveable wordcount goals, or you can write non fiction.


Wow, didn’t know that! Interesting!

Alright, sipdown!
I’m gonna miss you, Fig Pudding. You were indeed full of figgy goodness. Maybe I’ll see you again in the winter!
Sipdown! Ha, take that holiday stash.

I am feeling slightly guilty over a) the amount of tea I have currently and b) the amount of fall and winter teas I have. So I’m going to make a solid effort to drink them down.
Still delicious, even though it makes me feel like there should be pumpkins instead of 80 degree weather.

Its going to be close to 90 degrees today. Booo! Its March, that’s absurd! In all ways absurd!
Ugh, I hate summer (especially when its supposed to be spring). I’ve never done well in the heat, I burn like paper, and its too hot for tea! Aaaah!
So a “warm weather” blend, which is to say a tea that I feel is more appropriate for warm weather than cold weather, which is fruitier blends, and florals.
Today things call for strawberry, cream and roses. Yum.


I totally feel you on the weather…it’s been absolutely miserable here. Totally like summer already :(

drank Heaven's Trash by Butiki Teas

Ooof. Work this morning was a bit of a disaster. We had a fill, who ran too long, didn’t even get to the subject, and was generally a mess.
Ugh. At least I’m done.
How am I drinking this down so fast? How are all my Butiki blends all vanishing like that? Argh!
This was a lovely blend to have tried, I liked it a bunch. I’m sad I’ll not have anymore!

drank Capri by Harney & Sons

If you have heard a rhythmic thumping noise, thats me banging my head into my desk. Friends, its been a day.
Boyfriend has the flu, and is still trying to train for a pentathalon (banished to bed), parents are on vacation, so house and businesses need to be tended to, brother calls with relationship questions, best friend has broken up with her live in boyfriend and is now looking for another place to live and battle over custody of the cat, three coworkers are out, and scrambling to finish a large project has slain me. I am dead. RIP Rosehips.
When not melodramatically proclaiming my own death, I am rummaging through the hugeness of my tea cupboard for a soothing tea. Thats what this one is, nice, rich and creamy, soothing. Bingo. I need all the soothing I can get!


Hang in there! And drink lots of tea in the meantime :)

Boyfriend is ill tonight. So I tucked him in, and went home to my own tea. I feel fine, but to help fend off the germs, I decided that this tea would be just the thing.
I’m going to miss it now, its all gone.


I haven’t heard of this tea before…is it even carried anymore?


Maybe not, it was a limited edition blend.

drank Rose Royal by Lupicia

Today has been long, and its only one. I still have tons to do, lots of running about and panic. But I’m taking a moment, to drink this pot of tea. Give me some energy to carry on!

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.
