This morning served as a good reminder to always look outside before deciding what footwear to walk to work in. I’ve gotten in the habit of checking the temperature with my weather app (a balmy -3C today) but totally forgot to check how much snow had fallen… So there I was all ready to head out; I opened the door took one step outside and went “Wait a minute!” (We’ve probably gotten about a foot of new snow in the last 24 hrs.) Turned around and headed right back inside and started looking for my socks; high boots today it is! (I wear Vibram’s Lontra “shoe” when it’s not super cold out, or when I don’t have to plow through high snow drifts.)
Now for the tea! After a weekend filled with cinnamon and cloves (gotta love homemade apple cider!) I wanted something a bit different today so I reached for my small bag of Chocolate Chili Chai. The heat is still really subtle (see my previous note) but enjoyably tingly. I had a hard time finding the chocolate though today… not sure why. Oh well, it gave me a chance to enjoy the black tea base a bit more; to be honest it’s nothing to write home about but still a decent black tea.
