I needed something comforting and yet energizing this morning. Last night was not a good night. I went to go to bed and I heard a lot of scratching in the bedroom ceiling from the attic. And as I got closer, I could also hear baby animal sounds. And then scratching got a lot louder and the mama animal sounded big. Probably a raccoon. In my attic. Right over my bedroom. With babies. YUCK YUCK YUCK YUCK YUCKY!!! So I was a little (read: a lot) creeped out. I slept on the couch. Uncomfortably. We called the wild animal removal service that was recommended (based on my 1am Facebook post) and they can’t come until Monday.
Cheri is not a happy camper.
Cheri also didn’t sleep well last night, and in that last hour before my alarm went off when I was sleeping really restlessly, I was having horrible dreams about baby raccoons and my cats…and baby raccoons in my childhood bedroom closet (never happened, but my childhood bedroom was in my current house in my dream) which was really upsetting.
So I was trying to figure out what tea would be good to have on my way to work this morning, and this is what I chose. I love spearmint. I really like this tea. It’s got the right balance between the two with a nice spearmint and green flavor, followed by that almost metallic tang from the gunpowder.
