Dear Sil,
Please forgive me, but I really had to have this today. I hope you don’t think I’m drinking it to spite you, as I know you’ve been hoarding that last cup. Drink up, my friend! Drink up & enjoy! Drink up & savor the bold malty sweet wine like awesomeness that this tea has to offer, for the world could end tonight, or there could be a zombie apocalypse, or anything could happen, & it would be a shame for this tea to have gone to waste!
No more hoarding! : D

hahaha i actually thought about drinking it this morning but this “sick” that i have is messing with my tastebuds and i didn’t want to waste it. Instead i’m trying to drink things that i know will cut through the fog of snot and sick taste in my mouth lol :) i’m soo pretty this weekend haha

You & me both. I’ve been sitting around feeling sorry for myself with a terrible kink in my neck that started earlier in the week, & peaked out yesterday. I was reduced to immobility, with only Tony (who was really nice to me all day, rubbed my neck, fixed awesome food, expressed sympathy), TV (Cardinals baseball – thank god they won, followed by back to back Big Bang Theory, then SNL) & tea to console me (I’m grateful my tastebuds & sense of smell aren’t effected). Today is a little better, I was able to leave the house & go out to breakfast. Now I’m back on the couch, alternating between ice packs & the heating pad.
Hopefully we’ll both be better soon!
And yeah, save that last cup, no point wasting it, the world won’t end today, I promise! :)

i’m spending today going through my closet…i managed to lose a bunch of weight over the past year and i’ve gradually been picking up things to replace my bigger clothes…but now i have way too many clothes in the house. and i mean WAY too many. So i’m trying to get organised. Do you think it’s healthy for one person to have uh…30 wearable dresses in their closet? lol

Terri HarpLady

LOL, I’ve also lost 30# in the last year or so. I’ve been gradually working my way back down through the sizes, & I need to start bagging & donating stuff. I wear black for most of my gigs, so I have this entire closet of black stuff: pants, dresses, skirts, blouses, some really nice clothes (including the long beaded gown). They are all too big. I need to quit spending money on tea so I can buy a new wardrobe!

luckily my other half works at banana republic, which is perfect for all my work type clothes – his discount means i never have to try and shop for clothes on sale. i HATE clothes shopping. And since i can’t wear casual clothes at work, i barely need anything more than 2 pairs of jeans haha

Terri HarpLady

Yeah, not much of a shopper myself. I spend a large percentage of my time in pajama type clothes: sweats or yoga pants & t’s. When I actually leave the house & I’m not playing a gig it’s jeans & t’s.

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!
