Yes, yes, ’tis moi!

Oh, how I have missed you all and our steepster world!
(I must say, however, that it has been far easier to temporarily not buy more teas without hanging out with all you enablers though. :)

My wifi has been out for 6 weeks or more now . The first three days I was panicking and I was on the phone with my internet provider who then had to push through a ticket to the phone company. Long story. Is it the electricity? Is it the modem/ router? Buy a new over the top expensive one. Same issue. Essentially no signal. But because I don’t buy the telephone company’s wifi service—but my internet provider buzzes my connection through the phone line—the phone company does not care because the land line is fine. Yes, yes, I know no one else on the planet has a landline.

Anyway, the thing is that one needs a sizeable chunk of time to deal with these people —a four hour window or more wait for their phone calls. And then, another day and another four hour window for the phone company to come look see.

Seven phone calls and my health and I ran out of time and out of patience. For now.

For the next few days, I am house and kitty sitting for a friend, so I am hooked up with wifi, anyway. But I am using her computer, hence, a new account. Because passwords, oh hello. (Likely, if and when my wifi at home gets sorted, I’ll be back to my original account.)

Anyway, today I cracked this tea open for the first time and just yay! Vanilla loveliness gliding over the bergamot and frisky black base. The coconut softens all the edges. Beautiful.

This is just the second black tea I am drinking after a long long stretch of green and oolong. Smooth and lovely.

Flavors: Bergamot, Coconut, Vanilla

We JUST got rid of our landline! We had the same number for 24 years but eventually got almost exclusively spam calls.

I never answer it, or at least rarely. Good to have though—especially when the wifi goes out. I am now considering whether I need wifi at home at all. It’s been so lovely to have my days uncluttered by the urgencies of email and social media. I’ve even read books.

I still have a landline… and no cellphone! (Yes, I’m going for a Guinness World Record on that one). My landline is Voice-Over-IP through my cable Internet service, though… which I couldn’t live without. 6 weeks!? I’d be going off the deep end after 6 hours! You have amazing grit…

Haahhahaha, after three days, I was fine. I even read complete books. That said, now that I have access as I kittysit, gritwoman hasn’t been offline for a second.
