With Tea and Sunshine and Salutations of All Sorts
May the Fourth Be With You!
Did you celebrate this Monday? If yes, what did you do? We finally got to see Rise of Skywalker. Porgs are the BEST!!!! Well, next to R2 and BB8 and ewoks.
Cinco de Mayo!
It would have been fun to celebrate this or even just have Mexican food, but Xyra was not up to ordering pick up from Cal Tort. So we had leftover BBQ instead.
Happy Nurses' Day / Happy Skilled Trades Day! / Teacher Appreciation Week
Wednesday was all about sharing the love with the people who are keeping us healthy and moving along.
Thirsty Thursday #29When the sun shines one must enjoy it! That's what we did this today.
We raised glasses of iced tea in honor of our friend Nonna for her birthday. Virtual parties can be fun; not the same, but fun. Happy belated birthday, Nonna!
Lanie and Lea got to gardening.
Kaya and Kirsten were out on the scooter; you know Tatlo tagged along.
So what kind of tea are you two drinking?
It's JusTea Purple Rain tea.
Yeah! It's a great blend and fruity!
JusTea is a Kenya fair Trade tea company. I met them at the Coffee and Tea Festival Philly 2019.
This tea has organic lemon grass, Kenyan purple tea, hibiscus, apple pieces, rosehips, natural passion flower. Lanie is looking forward to composting the bag for the gardens.
The package also shows you want 1 teaspoon tea per cup of boiling water and to let it steep 4 minutes. Here is our teaspoon of tea.
Now we put the cozy on top and set the timer.
Let's see how it turned out.
Smells great. Floral, fruity, relaxing.
Here's another look at the color.
It tastes...mmm...tropical. Full. Fruity. I would like just a touch of honey..
If you like hibiscus teas JusTea Purple Rain is a good one to try.
Friday...Friday was not a good day so we're skipping the report there.
The Next WeekendWe went from shorts and tees back to long pants and sweatshirts.
Even had some flurries. It was windy and wintry.
Perfect weather for working on a blog post and graphics.
Happy Mother's Day!
How did you celebrate? This is a photo from Gramma Enne way out in Nevada.
