Enjoying My Tea

Right now I'm sitting here enjoying the quiet and my tea. Mmmm...a nice cup of Rooibus tea. Yummy! I've forever debated whether I like coffee or tea best and I think I've decided finally. The answer is definitely tea. There's something in a nice cup of hot tea that is just soothing to the soul. Does anyone else feel this way? And wine...that's soul-soothing too. I'm not saying I don't like my cup of joe, but soul-soothing it's not. Tasty, warm, and comfortable it is, but soothing is reserved for tea and wine.

I tasted a new wine today. It's Menage a Trois California Rose Table Wine v.2005. Now, most people who know about my wine taste know that I don't do sweet wines. However, I bought this for a recipe and of course had to try some. And honestly, I was pleasantly suprised. It's definitely sweet and fruity, very up front about it's taste...not bashful in the laste. Grapefruit...full of yummy grapefruit. That was the impression it left me with. I could imagine sipping this on a hot summer day, perhaps mixed with crushed ice and an orange slice. It was actually very nice. Too bad it's not a nice summer day. It's a crummy winter day and it's currently 25 degrees outside. Brrrr!

I start work in 11 days and it's lit a fire under my butt to get this place in order. I've actually made decent progress today. I've folded three loads of laundry. I've packed away "paperback swap" books into a bin to be stored until they've found a new home to be loved. I've gone through several stacks of paper and am working my way through several years worth of paper mess that either needs to be shredded or filed (I'm not exaggerating when I say several years). We have boxes of papers that have moved with us to several different locations. No more! The buck stops here!

Oh...the dryer just buzzed. I've also been washing diapers. Score for me for being productive today. We also went to Prompt Care and got Boo drops for his eyes. Yes, Boo has pink eye again. I don't understand it. We're very anti-social. We never go on out. This isn't really on just is. So anyways, I have no clue how he got this. Poor little guy. He woke up from nap today with his eye crusted shut.

The other thing that I must brag about is that I've been much more disciplined in getting Boo to nap throughout the day. It just took me being a little more proactive and really watching for those "I'm tired" signs. He goes out like a light though with a bit of side nursing in bed. Then I'm able to do what I need to do or dork around on the internet a bit. I'm afraid I indulge in the internet a bit too much. I tend to "window shop" on the internet. Does anyone else do this?

Well, I think I'm going to do some more of my dorking around in order to reward myself for a job well done!


  1. Have you tried Palmagranit wine? It's a sweet wine I'll actually drink with a bit of bitter sweet chocolate, it's a nice healthy desert. And because i don't drink it all in one night I don't feel guilty spending 10 bucks on it.

  2. I've heard that if you put breast-milk into a baby's eye it will cure pink eye!! I've never tried it but I figure it might be worth a shot.
