Tea plea

I’m easily sidetracked.  I finished the number of repeats required of the body lace charts in my shawl and decided I wanted a few more to make it bigger.  I can’t do one thing at once, so while I was contemplating how many more repeats I wanted, I was scrolling through facebook and saw one of those simple “about me” type of things.  Easy enough!  More distractions!

…but seriously, in regards to the last question thing:  if you have a black tea you’d recommend, please let me know.  I had the PERFECT cup of black tea when I was in Austria — some sweet old lady made it for me while I was visiting her home.  She said nobody else would ever drink tea with her because she liked it so dark.  The tea came out darker than coffee.  It was black, crazy strong, and so, so dry.  I loved it.  She just called it Russian tea and I’ve been on the search for something like it ever since, scouring all of the tea places around (especially the Ukrainian one over in Springfield, MA) but no luck so far.

3 places I have lived:

*I just wanted to throw out there that it’s app-a-latch-en, not app-a-lay-shun.  That’s very important.  I’ve always thought that Sharyn McCrumb (an author local to my region) explained it best.  I saw the sign below when I was in Northern Ireland last year and I had to grab a photo since it was so relevant.20232665_864192924219_7061932475770452448_o.jpg
