End of the Short Long Week

I was on the late shift this week, which I'm glad of, since it was only four days - because when I get off at 6, they are VERY long days.

I made this icon this week, though.

This is my new favorite tea.

I have done nothing else constructive this week - when I work this shift, I never see or hear any news (it's too late in the morning for my usual "Morning Edition," and I get home too late for the Evening News), but I did get in a couple of good workouts, which is good.

Still have not lost any weight.

We've been talking seriously about getting a composter (they sell the barrel ones at Home Depot, they're not horribly expensive). The family up in Washington threw all their organics from the kitchen into the heap, but they have a HUGE yard and garden (not to mention it's WET there).

Caramel, eh? Sounds interesting...

The ironic thing is there is plenty of land at the apartment that COULD be used for it but no desire from those rednecks.

Caramel is good. Usually that's a flavor that tastes so fake but theirs is delicious. They're pretty much my go-to online tea place. I just found another one that's pretty good too

The place you live scares me.

I'll have to check them out.

yeah really the place should scare you

I need to get back to making a list of what is and isn't good (oriental spice and one of the chai teas sucks, too much clove, tastes like medicine)

Yeah, I bought some loose leaf teas from the bulk section at Safeway and so far -- NOT impressed.

I suppose it was a gamble, that.

yeah sometimes they are there too long. Adagio has fandom blends too that are expensive to make a mistake with....

and loose leaf is much toucher with brew times and temps

Yes, that's true.

I've tried a lot of different things; french press, one of those Teavana drips out the bottom (I like that), and my old tea pot; so far all good with the Harney & Sons teas.

I had one of those teavana things too, broke it. Now I have one I got at Macy's. It's a cermaic pot with a wire cage that sits just inside and you pull it out at the 3-5-7 minute mark depending what type of tea you have. works beautifully and more durable in theory than the plastic

That's cool.

I'll see how long this lasts. It's only a month or so old at this point. :)
