My taxes are finished!
My son Drew’s taxes are also finished!
My son Leif & I will finish his taxes tomorrow, & then we’ll do everyone’s FAFSA.
And then we’ll sign up for Health Care. All by Friday.

This was the tea I drank all afternoon, this was the one that saw me through.
I don’t have much to say about it. It is a lovely Dian Hong, & although the needles aren’t as Golden as the name would imply, it is still delicious, sweet, lightly malty, & thick in feel.
And now I’m going to bed. Hopefully the raccoon won’t be back at 5am again!

Yeah on taxes and tea. I don’t mean to be a downer but good luck signing up for healthcare by Friday – it took me months. They say it is fixed, so hope so for your benefit.

Woohoo!
Also, right… taxes….
(We don’t usually get ours done until April, or later?)

well….I’m not sure the healthcare will be happening anytime soon, not because of the website, but because apparently I am once again one of those people who falls into the cracks.
My income isn’t low enough for medicaid, but it’s not high enough to qualify for any of the subsidies (thank you state of Missouri for ruining it for people like me), so I’m excluded. The up side is I don’t have to pay a fine. For now, I’m not gonna worry about it.

A musician friend of mine skipped the website & used a local broker, who got her signed up for a plan, & I may set an appointment to meet with that person to see what they say. I was trying to set it up for myself & my 2 college attending sons. Maybe if I just do it for me only, and let them each do their own.
On the other hand, I haven’t been to a doctor in years, & have no plans to go to one anytime in the future. It is doubtful that I would ever even make the deductable, so I consider it all a waste of money anyway…money I could spend on tea! :)
Maybe Tony & I should move to Toronto…

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!
