T Is For Tea

Big fan of trains.
Wish they didn't derail so often, seems like once a month I read something... or I'd take them more.
I like tea better anyway.
But let me fill you in on the back-story.
Those of you who know me, might know me to be a coffee nut. Yes, one time, not so long ago, I lived for coffee. Especially Tim Hortons coffee. I couldn't pass the place.
Well I still can't, but that's another story that should be filed as A For Addiction.
A few months ago I got the flu. Not just any flu, but the one that has you laying on the floor believing that is the best spot in the house to lay on. It knocks you off your feet, literally. Everything hurt.
I couldn't stomach coffee. Not for the coffee, but the cream I used. I'd fill right up.
So I had a tea.
It didn't make me feel heavy or filled up. But it did give me the caffeine I so badly needed.
I haven't had a coffee since then. Haven't even looked back.
I was scared too.
When I went without coffee previously I got the worst headaches. But not this time. They still only came with the up and downs of weather. (Another story again... man I have lots to share some day...)
So now I am a certified tea drinker.
I like them all. From Orange Pekoe to Chai, Green to Earl Grey, bring it on!

So tell me folks what do you prefer, coffee or tea?

  1. You don't have head aches now, because that would be a symptom of caffeine withdrawal, which you don't have, because now you're drinking tea. I like both very much. Tea favorites: Jasmine green tea, Pomegranate white tea, (the real Chinese) oolong tea, tropical fruit tea from Mighty Leaf, etc. My fave coffee is Quatamalan San Sebastian (beans) cappuccino from Peet's coffee:) Thanks for coming to my blog earlier!

  2. I prefer coffee, but love a cup of tea when I don't feel well.

    Try Constant Comment, it was my grandmother's favorite...

  3. I love coffee in the morning, and tea in the evening. I use a flavored creamer in my coffee and honey usually in tea. {:-D

  4. Yes. I do have one mocha from Tim Horton's each morning as I go to work. I am not sure my brain will turn on anymore without one (all my SOs fault too!). But I love tea too. I have Red Chai next to me right now. The only tea that I have ever found that I really disliked (discounting things like Lipton's which is tea in name only) was Lapsang Souchong - it tasted, to me, like I was drinking (and breathing) fireplace ash. Bleargh!

  5. Coffee for me! Dark roast and served black. No Starbucks for me!!
    I like tea from time to time... Earl Grey, Formosa Oolong and now I remember Constant Comment that RMW mentioned! Still with nothing added!

  6. I do love my morning coffee, but in the evening, it's all about the tea. Guess I enjoy both.

  7. I drink both, but nowadays more coffee. Here's the funny thing...I never drank a cup of coffee until I was 50. I was 100% tea back then. I'm not exactly sure what made me start drinking coffee. I guess the change was gradual. Sorry about your flu, but glad you're feeling better now.

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…
