I’m laying in bed in my pjs & my holey red cashmere sweater, with a heating pad wrapped around me. Tony hates this sweater, he says if I ever wear it to his house again, he’ll burn it! He keeps offering to buy me a new one.

I love this sweater! It looks like hell, but its so ridiculously soft, it’s my go to for comfort. It’s my inner child’s version of a blankie. I also have my stuffed bunny here. We just finished off this tea, which is yum yum! Nothing medicinal about it, it tastes so decadently dessert like, perfect for pampering the cranky child within.

I would be content to lay here, bundled & warm, but I’ve drank a lot of tea today & I have to go…

I love my holey lilac cashmere sweater. You can’t get rid of cashmere!

If you can’t wear it around him I recommend using it as a heating pad or hot water bottle cover. Might drive him less crazy but still keep you cozy.

Bio

I’m so excited to have found this community! I’m a self-employed Harpist (acoustic & electric – Originals, Classical, Rock, Jazz, etc) & Singer/Songwriter. My days & nights revolve around teaching at home, playing gigs, gardening,& fixing awesome food to eat. My schedule is different everyday, but I just go with the flow, & I sip a lot of tea!

My love of Tea began with Herbals back in the 70’s. One of my favorites was a licorice blend from House of Hezekiah, an old tea shop in Kansas City. There was also a tea with mint, rose petals, chamomile, etc called Nuclear Casual Tea.
In the 80’s I gave up caffeine, chocolate, alcohol, (& a few illicit substances…), and brewed medicinal blends & tinctures to support 4 pregnancies (all children born at home). In the 90’s my love affair with green teas began when I discovered ‘The Republic of Tea’. Their beautiful teas & packaging inspired my original song, “TeaMind”, from my CD “Zen Breakfast”. If you’d like to hear the song for free, drop by my website.

In general, I drink my teas straight, but occasionally I add a pinch of Stevia & maybe some coconut or almond milk (I’m allergic to dairy, gluten, & various other things & avoid most sweets.)

I’ve explored a variety of teas:
Whites tend to be a little bland…sorry
Oolongs – wonderfully sensual
Roobios – I’m not a fan in general
Puehr – a fairly new direction for me
I’m not a huge fan of flavored teas, but I do make exceptions, & I’ll try just about anything once.

And Black Tea, Oh how I love thee!!
I am on a quest for the most wonderful breakfast cup! I will find you, my Love!
