It is 49 degrees out there today, and partly sunny. I am SO MUCH ready for spring. I went through my teas, looking for something spring-like. Found this one and made a cup. Very light in color and lilght inflavor, but pleasant for an afternoon cup.

I had a doctor visit over webEX. Like, online. Weird, huh? She believes my sore bottom is Ischial bursitis. That is bursitis of the sit bones. It is probably the result of too much sitting. Her treatment plans includes avoiding sitting, applying ice to the area and taking aspirin.

I work 10 hours a day. Sitting at the computer. When I’m not sorking, I am generally sitting and reading, knitting, spinning, sewing ,etc.

I ordered one of those extendable desk that you can work at standing. It won’t arrive for 10 days.

So, off to lie on the floor with a family sized bag of frozen peas on my bum. Excuse me

While I am very sympathetic to your situation and wish you a speedy recovery, I can’t help but admit this gave me a good chuckle.

Same as Roswell Strange. It must hurt and I feel bad laughing on you, but it’s funny to imagine someone laying with frozen peas on bum.

Tea itself? Nothing I would drink I guess.

I think it is important to find the humor in any situatiuon. The cats seemed fascinated by the peas and took turns trying to knock them off my bum. This is what I have been reduced to. A giant cat toy laying on the floor like a beached whale with a slippery bag of peas on my bum.

More fun than a person should have to stand :) (Sorry, couldn’t resist!) Hope you’re feeling more comfortable soon!

LOL
I think it might be a little bit better already. But the doc said up to two weeks to see improvement so it mightbe all in my head.

I love cats. I love alone time. I love sitting indoors on a cold winter night with a book or my knitting while drinking tea. I don’t have a sense of smell, so many of the more subtle flavors of tea escape me. Two of the things I CAN taste are bitter and sour, so any tea that has even a slightly bitter taste is nasty for me. And what others might perceive as pleasant tartness may be horribly sour for me.

I’m also a writer. I love writing, and a mug of hot tea helps me get through the hours sitting in front of the computer. Although I’m a comparatively new tea drinker, I’m jumping in feet first. Feel free to recommend any teas you think I might enjoy.

100-91 – Wowza! I want to keep this tea in the cupboard all the time.
75-90 – Very nice. It would be good to have this tea on hand from time to time.
60-74 – OK. Wouldn’t keep it in the cupboard, but I would drink it again.
45-59 – If a friend served this I would drink it to be polite, but it’s not really my cuppa.
Lower than 45 – Blech. It was too sour or bitter for my taste. Would not drink it again.
