This week we are to photo-journal our daily routine.
Well... my life is crazy... so much crazy that there is no routine other than waking up and going to bed every day, and pretty much goes in between :)
But there are 2 things that I cherish (even if I don't get them *every* single day!) so I will consider them routine. One I talked before about, in one of the early weeks of Focus On Life (those weeks when we really got to know each other :) ): it's reading and you can read (pun intended) about it in Week 3: Time for yourself.
The other is pictured here:
I've always loved drinking tea... after crossing the ocean I stopped for a while, because everywhere I turned I only found black tea and that I cannot drink (makes me sick pretty quickly). A few years back I had the pleasure of finding a gentleman who was selling whole leaf teas. I followed him at all the fairs and markets in the area until he disappeared... then I discovered Teaopia... they had lovely tea sets (the one in the picture above) and amazing teas. Unfortunately the owner sold it to Teavana - and I cannot stand their teas. They are OK, however I do drink tea unsweetened and pretty much instead of water (as in extra-large quantities)... and I believe they use to much base tea and too little of the flavours for my taste.
I have been sad for a little while - until I found yet another Canadian company (Tealish) right in Toronto... now I order from them my teas and I am as happy as one can be.
And that is a little bit of my routine: making myself a nice tea, with something sweet (I have to get into tea sandwiches one of these days) or not... and just relax for a few minutes.
It's amazing what a nice cup and a lovely golden tea can do to one's spirit!
Thank you for joining me for a cup of tea :) For more on what our group's members' routine is - please make sure you visit Ms. Sally, we have gathered there for a chat as usual.
