It’s been a long day. I got up early, played a bridal fair all day, & I should probably be in bed, but I’m not because of Cardinals Baseball!
In case you didn’t know, St. Louis is serious about baseball & we love our team! I’ve never actually been to a baseball game, as I don’t care much for crowds unless I’m performing, & the view is always way better from my TV screen. I also don’t watch much TV, but baseball is one exception! We’re currently leading, 6 to 4. Keeping fingers crossed…

My taste buds are gradually starting to function. My main taste is still ‘sweet’, & I’m having this ongoing obsession to eat apple slices sauteed in coconut oil with cinnamon. I’ve been eating them for a few weeks, I just can’t get enough of them! I ate some steamed broccoli & tasted it’s mild bitterness, that was very exciting! I’m thinking I might start the day tomorrow with a creamy frothy Matcha (not flavored).

Everyone in my house is drinking Elderberry like it’s going out of style. In another exciting moment, I can taste the tartness of this tea today! Yay! Things are looking up! Now if we can just win this dam game!

Me too! They were leading 6 – 0, so it’s nerve wracking now. My daughter Jess (who lives a block away & obsessively knows everything there is to know about every cardinal member, team statistics, etc) & I are texting back & forth during the game, our own personal commentary channel.

I missed the game last friday night. I was just too out of it, & they were loosing until the very end, when they suddenly took over! Even though I was in bed, I heard the fireworks go off down by the riverfront around 11pm or so & knew they had miraculouslly won. LOL

I like going to games. Used to see the Royals in KC all the time, and catch the minor league Springfield Cardinals when I lived there. Went to a Traveler’s game down in Little Rock and hoping to see the Naturals here sometime in the near future. Live games are fun. To me, televised games are kind of boring, I like the crowd interaction. Or maybe I just like the peanuts and crackerjacks.

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!
