Taking a few minutes for an afternoon feet-up pondering why Mom, without benefit of Swiffers or microfiber dusters, had a house five times as clean as mine using nothing but old t-shirts and a wring-it-out-by-hand rag mop. (Couldn’t possibly be because she didn’t work 40 hours a week, plus a side gig, and wasn’t tempted to fritter away time online.)

SInce I can’t answer that one to my satisfaction ;) I’ll ponder this tea instead. One good barometer for me is, “Does it steep the same way every time, even with sloppy barbarian treatment?” It does! You smell the pineapple first, but you taste the cherry first, and the lemongrass/green tea combo cleanses your palate between sips.

Same conclusion. Very nice, very springy, and if you promise not to judge my hairy, dusty, baseboards, I’ll make you a cup.

These low maintenance teas are so great to have around!

Ha yep, I spent all morning cleaning, and at a certain point I was just like – close enough!

Mastress Alita

I was supposed to clean… and instead drank tea curled up with the cat and adult coloring books on the couch all day while marathoning old Castle episodes. Oops.

Mastress Alita – do you watch The Rookie? It’s really satisfying my Castle itch, which is quite obviously mostly because of Nathan Fillion. I would love to rewatch Castle someday, though.

Ah the good old days where we ‘frittered away time’ by conversing in person or on the phone. As for cleaning, I read an article once that said interesting, eclectic people have cluttered houses or work desks. I’ll go with that one.

gmathis

Yep, Mom conversed (at times extensively) using both of those techniques. She and Dad came from an era where “Let’s go see ____” was a perfectly acceptable Sunday afternoon MO. Drop in company! On the flipside, look at all the interesting and eclectic people I’ve met while frittering on Steepster!

@Kittena: Not yet though, but I’ve been heavily binging crime shows during the dark-inside-times so I just might!
