WE made it to Friday and the heavens have rewarded us with rain. Glorious, much-needed rain.
The kids are still snuggled in their beds watching Goosebumps on their pads so it’s quiet except for the rain falling.
Yesterday at tea time, we made a pot of the Sugar Plum Fairy Tea. The smell was wonderful with the almonds coming through nicely. It is a light green tea and very smooth with notes of pink peppercorn coming through followed by the wonderful aroma and taste of almond. Charli tried hers with a Clover Blossom Honey Spoon. We did not think that adding sweetness to the tea added anything to it so we drank ours without sweetener and she licked the honey spoon like a lollipop.
I have to say it was really good and I plan to go back this weekend and get the Blue and Pink ones. We got in a game of tennis yesterday before it started to sprinkle, so we went to Wal-Mart. I have to take a xanax just to go in there, but they are the only ones that carry the brand of body gel I like. It gives you a nice glow but it is also waterproof and keeps my skin from coming into contact with chlorine in the pool. We’re a sensitive lot.
While there we saw what I am assuming were teachers buying out every supply in the store. I asked them what were they doing. Apparently some schools are just telling parents to send in $20 and they will provide the supplies. I was outraged! Buying school supplies is a personal thing. If my kid wants all purple supplies, she’s getting all purple supplies. If it makes her excited to pick out her own stuff, then she’s doing that. We look forward to new supplies day, even after all these years of teaching I still love it. So no, good sir, we will not go with the flow. We are making our own choices. This isn’t a facist state just yet!
Have a good one! WE are snuggling up with Mrs. Doubtfire because they have never seen it! Lord I feel old!
