Today I had a better day than I would have expected. I did lots of PT, they called and asked if I could come even earlier, I was just finishing up with breakfast... it went better than I hoped.
I had a meeting in the afternoon, I did another tea tasting from a lovely gift of teas a friend gave me from Russia. You can read the tea tasting in full HERE. The part about the tea, I will copy for you right now:
This tea is fascinating in how hints of flavours come out as one breathes the wonderful aroma and really focuses on the tea. Hints of: floral sweetness, slightly bitter lemon, the berry notes of hibiscus, the grassy hint of lemongrass and the scent & flavour of thyme. This reminds me a bit of Greek Mountain tea. Put in a really unique case, with a string with wax seal keeping the tea sealed until it is ready for its first use! It's a very impressive and unique craftmanship!
My Husband loves to tease me while I carefully consider the tea I am tasting to write about it. I breathe the tea in, taste it with measured sips and jot down notes that my Husband, who does not smell things like I do, is a bit incredulous of. But I know my teas and I know what I wrote above is accurate to my experience of it. He likes to say things like the tea 'tastes like tea' (his view of the green tea I had earlier this week) or, today's tea 'is brown water' (ha ha, it's not even brown, it was a golden yellow really) or he goes on about tea and that which excrete (if you know about that sort of tea, you get his joke) ... but really, while I tease him right back about his jokes about tea (as you can see from what I am writing here!), I really find him to be funny and his laughter always makes me happy.
I am reading various books and just finished this one that you can see HERE that was a real cheering up book.
I managed to do the dishes and my Husband and I listened to a delightful part of the Lord of the Rings during dinner and we ended up putting dishes away and washing up afterwards, which was an unexpected delight. I thought while in this moment: this is something I always want to remember, this moment of communion over dishes and Tolkien....
Tomorrow is going to be a busy day so I best try to get to bed. It's late as it is.
God bless you and keep you and save you...
