My toes were really cold this morning! It was our first day of the household temperature dropping below 70 degrees. We have a rule against building the first fire of the year until it hits 65 degrees, and that includes no turning on the furnace. It helps us get acclimated to the new season and get accustomed to using the woodstove again.
This meant I needed a toe-warming tea today. What better than a tea that impersonates hot chocolate? I succumbed to the temptation and wiles of JacquelineM and added (gulp) a squirt of chocolate syrup, a splash of milk, and a wee bit of sugar. Toes and nose are toasty now! Aaaaaah.
And for those of you in really cold climes, we are fully aware that 69 degrees IS toasty to you, we are wimps, and piedmont North Carolina isn’t cold! But we get used to the 100 degree days and have a hard time adjusting to cooler weather! We love sleeping with the windows open and it was 49 degrees last night!
