I had this this morning, and that feels like a very long time ago.
Early today one of my coworkers in my tiny office went into a seizure, out of the blue. It was terrifying, and my boss called for an ambulance and I got her out of her chair and onto the floor, and tried to keep her from failing into the furniture. She may not have been breathing for a minute.
The ambulance came and got her, and she was awake and talking by the time the paramedics arrived and got her out, but I’m still feeling pretty shaken. And, as we are not family, we wont hear anything unless her husband calls us.
We’ve never had anything like this before, either as an office or in my own personal life, so I’m a bit shaken.
Boyfriend came and brought me tea, something pepperminty, when I called to tell him. The heat helped.
I really hope she’s ok.


Wow. Tea is absolutely necessary after an adventure like that. Hope all is now well.


That’s really scary. I’m so glad she woke up quickly. Hang in there!

A life lesson, a presented by Rosehips-
Dont try to write your word count, listen to music, cook rice, and drink tea all at once. You will burn the rice, and be very cross.
However the tea will be delicious.


ooo, I have an electric rice cooker and I do not regret buying it :)


Agreed, I was always too cool for a rice cooker, but now that we have one I LOVE IT SO MUCH

Someday, when I have my life all figured out, I will not need to wake up early. That will be the day I know I’ve made it.
Sitting here, bleery, and ready to fall back into the embrace of my bed, but that wont do. Lots to do today, work, writing, and working out all needs to be done.
Very gingery this morning. Good. Thats just the way I like it.

drank Organic Spicy Ginger by Tazo

Got a cup to fuel both the work at the job and the writing of the novel on break today. Not the really good tea place, the “pick a bagged tea out of a bucket and dump hot water on it” kind of place. Horrors. I remember when that would have been satisfactory, though. What a difference a year makes!
Well, this is not quite as spicy as I expected it to be, which is a bit of a letdown. Still, the ginger is the first flavor, so thats a good thing. Worth trying, anyway, even if I wont bring it home to stay.

Day two of Camp Nanowrimo. Its going to be a long day, and somewhat difficult to get all the things I need to do done, but I can do it.
Starting today off right, with this tea.
This conjures up an image of a soft pink blanket, gently settled around my shoulders. This is a soft rosy cloud, and very good. Light, and dreamy. A good tea. It will be good this spring.


you can dooo eeeeeet!

Tea! Ooof, its suddenly bitterly cold around here. I’m glad I’ve got a few more days of cold weather, for the full potency of of a hot cup of tea.
Ahh, tea. Is there anything better?

Nanowrimo friends, does anyone do Camp Nanowrimo? I am doing it this year, as I did it last year, and today is the first day.
The rules are the same, a wordcount every day, but instead of a set 50k, you can move it around. (I am still doing 50k), and you could write something other than a novel, but I want to write novels, so thats why I am doing.
Its always an occation to drink tea, so I decided to start off with a cup of a failsafe good tea. Extra honey flavor today, which is the best of luck. May it signal a sweet time writing!

Ooh, I didn’t know there was a thing happening this month, but I could use a motivator to finish some short stories, so I shall happily join you!


I highly recommend it! Nanowrimo is an excelent motivator to get things done.

drank Vanilla by Lupicia

Nope, not very vanilla. I can see the chunks of vanilla in the loose leaf. Curses.
It was raining earlier, and I expected to come home in the rain, and sit in front of my fireplace, reading and drinking tea. It stopped raining though! Drat. Oh well, perhaps I will still do the plan.

Raining today! So I slogged out to get a cup of tea at my lunch break.
I really should just get some of this for home, as I get it out often enough. Glug glug.
Its a really fresh and juicy tea. Good stuff.

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.
