Tea: A Gateway Drug…

It’s Friday! You made it through another week! Raise a cup for that! I have to say this Harney & Sons Hot Cinnamon Spice Tea is a real winner for me! The smell alone had me smiling. It will definitely be a Fall/Winter staple at my house!

The other day when I was searching through all theΒ tea sites I found this recipe for using Celestial Seasonings Cinnamon Apple Spice Tea with Fireball for a hot toddy. Heck yeah! That idea is getting Β used this football season.

Yesterday to keep my mind occupied I started Fall cleaning. I took the refrigerator apart and cleaned it and labelled all of the bins. Same with the stove only I didn’t label it since we aren’t really that close. Scrubbed every cupboard in the house. Got the slip covers on the sofas, got all clean pillows and bedding, and cleaned all the vents. And you won’t believe this but I already have dinner done for tonight! Yep, I put it in the crock pot last night and this morning Voila! dinner!

Tonight we are going to see the Kingsmen sequel. I loved the first one so much I’ve seen it like 5 times. And I never watch anything more than once. If you have Netflix, you should really watch The Five by Harlan Coben. It was on Sky TV in the UK last year and I think on Canal in France. I watched it more than once. It is just as wonderful as his books. So if you get a chance watch it!

Have a great Friday! Make someone elses day great too. Smile! Be Kind! Do what you can to help just one person today.

    I was lucky enough to get an opportunity to help someone today. Coming home from the barn I found a car stopped in the middle of the road. An elderly man was inside and I got out and asked him if he was alright. Turned out he was well but was driving to the internment of his wife who had passed. He had been overcome with grief and had stopped his car. I spent some minutes with him and ascertained he was well enough and I commiserated with him about the sadness of his situation. He seemed to rally round and we both went on our ways.

    Thank you so much for the belly laugh today. I had to read parts out loud to my daughter who is here on most Saturdays so she could share in our similar philosophies of the stove. It look me awhile to stop laughing so I could read out loud though. I have been informed as to where to find your Haney and Son’s tea here in the States. My daughter is a fan. Having Fibromyalgia, she avoids coffee and sticks with good tea to avoid flair ups. I drink less tea than she but she also informed me on the Fireball. I have a very bright daughter. πŸ™‚ This post tickled me to no end as well as educated me a bit more. πŸ™‚

        My daughter said Barnes and Noble Bookstores has it too. I’ve never stopped looking at the books long enough to notice. I’ll check Amazon too. I’ll get her some for Christmas. She said Fireball is like Goldschlager only cheaper. I’m German. Not much makes me dance on poles. I was raised with beer in a baby bottle. πŸ™‚

          I had no idea they sold it at Barnes and Noble! I’ll have to check it out! Beer in the bottle huh? I remember when my 9 month old was teething so bad and we were on a trip with my parents to Disneyworld. Finally my Dad said, Give him to me and stuck a bottle in his mouth. With a Vodka Tonic in it! He only got like one suck before I went bat shit crazy. But he did stop crying.

            I rubbed brandy on their gums and grandmother (the New England variety) made a cough syrup with bourbon, honey, lemon and it bit of butter to cure my son’s pneumonia. Nothing the doctor prescribed did the trick. We were all such well behaved kids and always slept well. πŸ™‚ Grandmother also put bourbon, water and a little sugar in an eyedropper for colic. It worked. Now a Vodka Tonic? Hmmm. A little won’t hurt but not too much. On the gums is best for numbing. We tried what the doctors say, when that doesn’t help, we go back to the old remedies. They usually do. Right now I’m taking lavender old to help me sleep. Much better results than the medication and no after affects. πŸ™‚ Just how it’s worked for us. My kids are old and guess they survived ok. Son drinks NOTHING, daughter, one on an occasion. Me, I still like a good imported German beer on occasion and a glass of wine with a friend. You probably didn’t want to know all that. :/
