Sipdown!
A sip down is always a satisfying thing, even when it’s a favorite tea.
See you again in the autumn, Boston!

I am in zero-in mode. I have been drinking this every morning for the last week.
The reasons for this are twofold- on the one hand I love this, I find it rich and delicious. On the other, I feel very strongly that this tea is best in the autmn and winter, and I want to sip it down before things get warmer.
For me, this is tea is very easy to drink every morning. Nom!

Everybody needs a comfort tea like that!

Why is life so busy? Why am I so tired? Well, maybe those have something to do with each other.
I’m in one of my phases where I am feeling like working towards a sip down, so I’ve been drinking a lot of this. I adore this tea, but it’s a tea best suited to autumn, in my mind, and I know I’ll want some fresh when the autumn comes around again.
It’s still cold enough for me to enjoy it, though, so that makes me happy.

Morning plans- sit with a beautiful tea cup of this, sipping elegantly, and being as relaxed and happy as possible.
It’s my birthday. My celebrations will be small, but they will be happy.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, ROSEHIPS!

Hope you spoil yourself rotten for at least a next week or two.

May your day be full of sprinkles, confetti, ribbons and bows, twinkles and sparkly things, buttercream frosting, and contentment.

After last weekend, which was Not Fun™, I have dedicated this weekend to relaxation and indulgences in pleasures, small and otherwise. I intend to make food that delights me, to give myself permission to work on my hobbies as much as I’d like, and to watch and listen to exactly what I please.
I have, for this occasion, brewed an entire pot of this, and pulled down one of my beautiful teacup with saucer. I intend to sip daintily, nibble on some bread, and do some knitting.
Ah, bliss.

I’m so happy you’re getting some You time! I wish I could send you a little of the snow outside my window … small, lazy flakes … like something you’d see in the background of a Hallmark movie.

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.

gmathis

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.

tea-sipper

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.

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.
