Actually, I think my tea supplier is ISO certified.

I like to write something a little eerie or spooky for Hallowe'en every year. "Haunting" is what I went for this year.

I love being awake after everyone has gone to sleep. My house is peaceful for now.

I'll just sit here quietly reading and sipping ginger ale.

I hope everyone one is doing well.

Happy Weekend!

Don't mind the certification, I just need an Earl Grey tea to get me going this morning!

I have four hours of dance workshops to learn a section of choreography today. Yes, only a section. Eek! Wish me luck, guys! ☕

The coffee is brewing for me.

Good morning. Not sure I'll be learning any more dance routines anytime soon.

Cheers, all. rr

Afternoon, Larry. Having been born with two left feet, just the idea of a four-hour dance workshop makes me woozy.

Hello, Bill. I did so love to dance. Perhaps I could join Cynthia sometime, someday.

Dinner is almost ready here and I just submitted a memoir to this site that I hope will be of interest to some readers here.

Drinking my last cuppa java for the day.

Cheers, all. rr

Anytime, Larry (hugs)! And your memoir is delightful. :)

Bill, I'm feeling woozy after the workshop so that makes two of us!

I could really do with a pot of Earl Grey tea. ☕

My pot of java is still on the stove, brewing. I'll just do a little internet sailing until it's ready.

Cheers, all. rr

Was up half the night with a sinus headache. Coffee is brewing and the cat is chasing its shadow.

Blueberry Jam is the tea of the day.

And if January is the trial month, can I cancel at the end of the trial period? I was not satisfied with 2019 as presented.588-rolleyes

Snow blowing the driveway; four inches this morning. COLD and miserable. (Me. Not the weather. The weather is horrible.) Still need hot black tea with 3 Ricola lozenges and two spoonfuls of honey. Cough, cough, cough, cough. Sneeze! Oops, sorry about that. Don't stand too close! Looks like the high temps this week are in the negative numbers.~How thrilling~

Sounds much like my day/week as well. A forecast 10-15cm of snow has begun to fall and it's supposed to be cold right through the weekend.

Need to keep my caffeine levels moderate after having some insomnia on the weekend so I'll take a lemon ginger herbal tea.

A scattering of sleepy snow forecast for tomorrow. But nothing like with Scott!

Thank goodness the 70 mph gales over the weekend are past us now

I could do with a lemon and ginger tea too, please!

Shovelled a pile last night, then had to deal with the snowbank the plow created in the end of the drive overnight when I got up this morning. A blower is looking more and more appealing all the time, but if I get one, my car will have to park outside year-round (our garage is tiny and barely holds both cars so we park mine outside in the summer to make room for the mower and wheelbarrow) or we'll have to put in a shed.

Caffeinating with David's Breakfast Blend this morning. Nice, flavourful black tea blend.

Rain, sleet, snow and dropping temperatures. The wind chill will be in the negative numbers tomorrow. Thankfully I don't have to be outside.

I'll just settle into a comfy couch here and sip on a ginger ale.

It was a long day but I finally finished cleaning out my parent's attic, sheds, and utility room.

I'm too old to be carrying things down three flights of steps.

Cheers!

I want to spare my children that experience and haven't figured that out yet. I've thrown out most things purchased in my twenties and thirties. I'm less successful with "stuff" from my forties and fifties. Am open to anyone's wise advice on this.

More tea and honey, please. Is there a small piece of lemon cake around?

Gill, you are doing a sterling job! Not easy at all. (hugs)

Stuff just gathers! I'm not a hoarder and pretty good at throwing old things out but all the same, it just seems to grow on its own!

I'm making a lemon and ginger tart tomorrow, if you can wait that long! 🍰

Definitely a morning for coffee, please. ☕

Perhaps I should vacuum my mind of words I have saved. Maybe rent a storage locker.

Gill that is a huge achievment, good for you! It sounds like you could use some time at a spa now, if you enjoy massage etc.

Wordpusher, you've likely heard of the clutter-busting craze going on at the moment, and the whole "does it spark joy" thing. If something doesn't "spark joy" apparantely it is supposed to be gotten rid of. help

The sparking joy thing puzzles me, and my take is rather, if something sparks irritation in me, then it is quite likely time to get rid of it.

I had an aunt who set up a rule, if something new came into the house, something old had to be gotten rid of. She was rather ruthless about it, too, which had my cousins sneaking things in when she wasn't looking. geek

Good morning. It is Negative 3 degrees F here at the moment. That is about negative 19 degrees C. That was a fun little walk with the pup.

I'm waiting for the coffee to brew.

When we moved from a small town to our townhome in a college town I was ruthless with getting rid of things. I was not about to move all of the stuff we had accumulated. I hauled off five Plymouth Voyager mini-van loads of things we both agreed we didn't want. It was surprisingly easy to do.

But I can see how hard it is for people who get attached to things.

Oh well. Cheers. flower

If I got rid of all the stuff I have accumulated and kept only what was necessary for life, I would be adrift in an ocean of shoes! ... oh! and bags .. need bags with shoes angel7

Can I post this, a voice from the south. Thursday evening and the southerly change rolled through. The temperature dropped from around 38 degrees C to about 26 degrees C. Such welcome relief as it has been so hot and humid today. And the heat and humidity of February still in front of us. Hope you all have a good day, and if you can send some snow down our way, please do so.

Coffee, please.

They re-opened Wisconsin this morning,
Or so I've been told,
Apparently -30 degrees isn't so very cold!
It doesn't seem to matter if its F or C
Frigid weather is all together way too much for me!

No matter what, we are keeping the three kayaks, the three bicycles, the two cars, her four dozen collector dolls and my twenty-four chess sets. That pasta maker gift from 1999? Bye, Bye. Oh, and we have to keep the hundred different Charles Wysocki jigsaw puzzles. No matter what we are keeping our treasures!

I'm currently inspired, I think. My writing of late has been a touch wiggly. If in interested in a collaboration give me a shout. In the meantime pour me a cup of coffee...please.
