Another tea from Sil. I thought this would be a sipdown, but there is still enough left for one more cup, so I put that last bit in my ‘sipdown’ box, which I started awhile back. Any tea that only has enough left for a cup, or maybe a 16 oz pot, is getting dropped in there. There are only about 5 of them right now, waiting to be picked off one by one, or maybe for my next Sipdown Extravaganza (I haven’t had one of those in awhile).

I met with a bride & groom a little while ago, booking & planning their wedding for next September. They paid their deposit using my Paypal swiper! So now I have a little money in my PlayPal account! I’ll let it sit there for now, & hopefully it will build up by the end of the month for some awesome tea orders! Meanwhile, I’ll keep sipping!

I think we may have decided to tie the knot on sep 19 after all.

sigh…except I won’t be able to come play :(
The wedding I booked today is on sept 20th

Sil

haha well i’ll keep you posted. I’m beginning to think eloping is looking really good..

Terri HarpLady

You could always come get married in St. L!

Sil

i think we’ll likely get hitched here in toronto. Our friend is getting married in July in Cape Breton on a friday which means summer high season wedding 1400 just for our flights. As such, i doubt we’ll be going even if ian is supposed to be a groomsman. He has school exams that week as well. So we’ll likely stick to home base as much as possible but then i’d like to take 2 weeks off to travel – though that might have to wait until ian has school break heh

Terri HarpLady

When does Ian graduate?

Sil

oh god…seems like forever from now. I think? he’s got another year and a bit? if we were to get married in september, he has a week break in October that we could take advantage of for a bit of travelling…maybe stay in the US and do a road trip sort of deal until he graduates and then do a 2 week europe sort of trip as a graduation present for him :)

Terri HarpLady

Cool!!!
I think you guys travel more than anybody I know :)

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!
