Monday Afternoon and Simple Pleasures




I made myself a cup of Cinnamon Apple Spice tea and thought to myself, "self doesn't tea just make you feel smarter?"
Somehow it does. Like the English accent. When a person speaks in an english accent to me they just sound smarter doesn't matter what they are saying. Anyway, this particular cup of tea is comforting me in more ways than one. Warming my hands and making me feel as though everything is going to be okay. Do you ever feel that way about a certain food or drink? If so isn't it interesting how food and drink can have that effect on a person?

Simple thoughts like this have been on my brain lately. I have been reading a lot of books (of choice) recently. I am not in school this semester and I am left with the urge to read something, anything, and everything all at once. Some very recent books have been set in a time frame long ago, and so my thoughts have been about what it must have been like to live in the days of the great depression, holocaust, and or even living in this day and age but in a war plagued country.

I take for granted at night that my belly is full, my feet are warm, and that I won't wake in the middle of the night by sounds of bombs going off. Maybe a thought or two has hoped that a tree wouldn't fall on this cozy little cabin in the middle night, but that is a story for another day. Also I don't want to worry my mom if she is reading this so let's move on.

So the simple pleasure of having a cup of tea seemed blog worthy to me today. Thankful for tea, thankful for warmth, thankful for the simple joys in life.

That's good tea. It is how I feel about coffee. I heart it. I swig it. I drink it. I chug it. I swish it. I savor it. Coffee.

I heart coffee also. Still drinking it in the mornings,
BUT in the afternoons I have switched to drinking tea so that I don't wake in the middle of the night as much. Seems to be working. Only one week in and bye bye broken sleep for me.

I agree that drinking tea inherently makes us feel more intelligent than coffee, maybe that's why I'm a coffee drinker...well said, thanks for appreciating the small stuff

YEAH! You are breaking your 12 cup-a-day coffee addiction! I am so proud of you! Tea, tea, tea! Maybe you too would like to join the Tea Party.....or maybe it is your Boston roots...just being silly now. I want to switch to tea. What other kinds do you like besides apple cinnamon? I'm doin' the decaf thing I think I told you and fell like a million bucks and almost don't even want that anymore. LOVE YOU!
