Thank you everyone for your well wishes and love and concern.
It was a long weekend of no fun, but there is very good news. My mother is home, and doing much much better. She had a small procedure in the hospital, and we got way more information about what is going on with her heart. It’s treatable with medication, and things are looking generally up.
She’s annoyed, as she needs to lay low for a few days after the procedure, but she’s home.
It was a rough stay, emotionally, as she was in the same hospital (even the same wing) that my father died in six months ago, so none of us were at our emotional best.
But she’s home. Thats what I really am focused on.

That’s good news! Being home will be good medicine for both of you.

Dustin

That sounds like a really exhausting weekend, but I’m glad to hear it ended with a positive outcome!

ashmanra

So glad she is home!

Martin Bednář

Happy to hear that!

My mom had another cardiac event this weekend, and is going to have some surgery today to see just what is wrong with her heart.
I was looking forward to not spending more time in the hospital, but that doesn’t seem to be in my cards just now.

Roswell Strange

Sorry to hear about your mom – I will keep her in my thoughts.

Evol Ving Ness

I’m sorry to hear this, Rosehips. How scary and worrying! I’ll be thinking of you both and sending good thoughts in your direction.

Kawaii433

:( So sorry to hear this, Rosehips.

Martin Bednář

Sorry to hear that! I hope everything will be alright soon!

Courtney

So sorry to hear! I hope everything will be alright.

gmathis

Oh, darlin’! Praying for you. You’ve had a bumpy, bumpy ride.

Dustin

Oh no! I hope all goes well with surgery!

ashmanra

So sorry you two have to deal with this! Praying for you both tonight.

drank Pumpkin Chai by DAVIDsTEA

My sister gave me this tea for Christmas, and it’s nice to make its acquaintance again!
Not the most pumpkin-y tea in the world, but I actually find the somewhat lighter blend of spices to be very pleasant.

It’s an odd Christmas. My mother and I were supposed to be in NYC with my brother, but for health reasons we had to cancel at the last minute. That means we didn’t do any decorating or anything here at home, as we were not expecting to be here.
So it’s not exactly feeling merry, in my part of the world, so it’s time to drink the holiday teas.
I picked this one up and saved it for December, for obvious reasons. It’s a Wonderful Life is a special movie to me, as I played Mary in a stage production a few years ago, which was a lovely experience.
Happy Holidays, and a Merry Christmas to all who celebrate it!

Evol Ving Ness

Cool! That must have been somewhat transformative, even if temporarily so.

Happy Christmas to you, Rosehips. We have missed you.

CrowKettle

Merry Christmas, Rosehips! It’s a Wonderful Life is a good pick <3

derk

Merry Christmas :)

gmathis

May some “merry” sneak up on you from behind when you’re not looking. Hugs to you!

I’ve had a few cups of this so far, and it is a very delicate lavender tea. This is very good, as sometimes lavender blends can taste of soap, but this one does not.
This one tastes more like currant tea, with a hint of lavender, and I really like that!

drank Feel New by Pukka
2873 tasting notes

So I was involved in a Yarn and Tea Swap. I was paired with a swap partner across the country, and we sent each other some tea and some yarn and a few other holiday treats. I know she got hers (I sent local yarn and local tea), and my package arrived today, which is lovely.
She sent me an entire advent from Pukka, which is lovely! A new tea every day, and as I didn’t get a tea advent this year, this excites me.
The first tea in it was this “Feel New”, which was a very delicate brew. It tasted mostly of the fennel, so it was very herb-y.
I have a few cups to catch up, but I’m excited to have a little treat this month!

Cameron B.

Aww that’s so sweet! I thought about trying Pukka’s advent, but I have too many already heh heh…

gmathis

Remind me … knit or crochet?

Rosehips

I’m a knitter!

drank English Caramel by Pittador Brews
2873 tasting notes

Thank you all so much for your encouragement of my Nanowrimo story! Its a steampunk (but steampunk in the 20’s/30’s- deco punk?) story, and I really enjoyed writing it.
Nanowrimo tells me that this is the 9th year I’ve won the project. I find it a really useful writing tool!
I picked up this tea recently at a local honey festival. It smells devine, but in the way of many caramel teas I have encountered, it tastes rather “thinner” than it smells. I’ll play with the steep time next!

Evol Ving Ness

Nine years! Teafriend, you are a superstar! Well done!

CrowKettle

That’s dedication! Awesome. Also intrigued about “deco punk”.

Roswell Strange

I vote on “Flapper Punk” for what it’s worth ;)

Rosehips

THank you all! And “Flapper Punk” is a cool name!

I love tea! I confess that I was a hot chocolate lover for most of my life, but recently a switch has gone off in my brain, and suggested that I might just love tea. And I do!
I’m a bit of a novice, but an enthusiastic one, and am happily sipping new varieties all the time.
I love vanilla, fruity, and caramel flavors, and cant wait to try more.
