The Tea Master

 

So…I recently bought a tea master. 🙂 I’d heard good things about them, I’d even seen one or two.  But wasn’t planning to buy one…until I saw they were 75% off. 😉 Anyways, it’s a super cool tea pot. 🙂 (I mean, the tea pours falls out the bottom! How cool is that?!)

I love loose leaf teas so I’m pretty excited about this and will definitely be putting it to good use, especially in the coming fall and winter months…(wow! I can’t believe I just wrote that! Fall and winter?!)

Yup, now I can make myself a tea latte anytime I want. (Yes, this is a good thing…I think 😉 )

Just thinking about tea makes me smile. 🙂

Out of the Box

Yup, it’s friday…and yes, I’m breaking out of my “blog 3 times a week” box. 🙂 (there’s already one scheduled for tomorrow if you just counted how many times I blogged this week 😛 )

But, I’m happy…so I’ll blog (that’s a good enough reason, right? 🙂 ) Besides, sometimes it’s nice break a habit and do something different. Get out of my own “self-imposed” box…

Actually, the real reason I’m writing a quick blog post is to say “thanks”.  I’m celebrating over 1000 hits to my blog page, no I don’t know the usual blog stats and if this is normal or even worth celebrating (and yes, I’m too lazy to research them 😛 ) But whatever, this makes me happy, especially because my blog has only “been public” for a week and a couple days ;-).  Yesterday was my busiest day with 300+ views.  Thanks Anna and Jannice, you gals helped make it possible I’m sure! Just wanted to say thanks for all the support to all you who have been reading and following etc! 😀

Anyways, just wanted to say I’m excited. Look for some new features etc. in the next few weeks!

Here’s a hint at tomorrow’s blog post. I’ll leave it up to your imagination to what it alludes…

Till tomorrow, always…Aims

Between Good Friday and Easter Sunday…

Whew…! It’s nice to take a breath in the middle of a busy long weekend.  Today might be a little more of a “wordy” post…just sayin’. 🙂

It’s gorgeous outside today…a sunglasses and bright smiles kind of day, warm enough to leave my jacket at home.  There are pros and cons about part timing two cities…today for example.  I’m missing out on the first paintball game of the season. 😦  But, one of my favourite coffee shops is in walking distance from where we live here.  I took advantage of the sunshine and took a walk.  I love sitting in the corners of coffee shops and observing etc. especially when I get a seat on a comfy couch, like I did today!  This coffee shop is adorable!  It used to be a house, and the owners transformed it into a little coffee shop.  There are vintage-ish knickknacks, black and white photographs on the walls, a basement, and porch (and free wi-fi! Yay!) It’s a cozy little place and I come here often. 🙂 It’s here that I, I mean my sister, discovered a mango tea latte with a shot of vanilla…wow!

The one sentence that’s been going through my mind over and over this Easter is:

“He bore the wrath, I know the grace”.

Cross in the Berlin Wall.

That pretty much sums up my thoughts on Easter in one sentence.  Words can never describe how thankful I am, and how much it means to me.

Saturdays are for unexpected plans, like today when my friend and I went out for pochos… I’m not one of those people who takes pictures of food (yet!) so I didn’t.  But if you’re ever in the Okanagan Valley make sure you find a Kelly Os and have some; SO yummy…!!!  You kind of have to eat them to believe how incredibly awesome they are (think cheesy fries with a honey mustard dip…and BACON!) 😀

Hope you all had as much sunshine as I did this Easter!
