Anybody besides me wondering if we’ll still be in long johns come July? Blustery and chill this morning, giving way to some scraps of cold sun later on—-grabbed this at work because it was handy, and I was freezing. It’s a good steeper when all you have is sloppily microwaved work water. More fruit-vanilla than spice, which is OK by me. I’m going to have to count remaining bags and use them parsimoniously.

Too, too cold for April. Had to bring the houseplants back inside yesterday. Sigh. They were so happy being out this past weekend.

Nicole

Oh, and you get a gold star for using “parsimoniously.” Great word.

Slightly sunburned and hot and itchy here from sitting by the chicken run watching the new chickens scratch. (Yes, I am easily entertained.) I was just lamenting that we are now thrust into the hot sticky weather. we just had a thunderstorm. Come on over my way, both of you, and I will fix a pot of tea!

I spent a few hours gardening, & although its a little cool, it will warm back up soon enough! :)

Bleh… I’m headed home to Saskatchewan at the end of the month. They still have absurdly huge amounts of snow. And we’re in the midst of an ice storm in Ontario. :/ I would like spring to arrive soon…

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
