A Very Wet Day….

Pouring Tea

Went out with friends last night and caught a movie double-header; Fantastic Four and Batman Begins.

When we came out of the theater, I was feeling very achy in my knees, and my friend, Lady Katana was feeling it in her ankles. We both have old injuries that tend to act up under certain circumstances. We dedeuced that rain was on it’s way, probably for the next day.

Sure enough, wake up this morning and only a few minutes later I start to hear the crash of thunder and then the rain starts. Not a few drops mind you, but an absolute downpour. (Thank god for Robaxacet, the best cure for my achy joints!) Here it is, two hours later and it’s still raining quite hard with only the occasional pause in intensity.

I don’t think I’ll be running many errands outside today, at this rate… I think I’d rather curl up with a nice hot cup of tea — but sometimes it’s hard to choose which kind… perhaps Jasmine & Mint, Peach or even some Blueberry tea. I definitely need something fruity and cheerful to make up for a slightly depressing and achy start to the day.

Speaking of which, are you a coffee or tea drinker? If so, what is your favourite blend, selection or flavour?

That’s all for now,

  1. Some days I like coffee other days I am a tea person.

    But for tea I stick to green tea as it is healthier and it helps relieve you of toxins. And for coffee it’s either cafe au lait or plain. Depends on my mood.

    Hope your achy joints get a bit better.

  2. Thanks; I don’t usually use Robaxacet much, except for days like today, when I find it very worthwhile. Otherwise I pretty well can’t get much done…

    I’m not much of a coffee person myself, although I do have a soft spot for French Vanilla cappuccino from Tim Hortons, but I don’t think that counts. I find I like the smell of coffee more than I like the actual taste.

    I have a few varieties of green teas in my tea cupboard, along with about 25 other varieties of flavoured and herbal teas. I *love* tea. I make my own iced teas in the summer, so that I can continue to enjoy them even when it’s too warm to enjoy hot tea as much.

  3. Mistress Jade,

    I wish I could have been there to run your errands for you, it pains me to hear of your discomfort. Mistress, as I live in Florida I only drink coffee and tea in the winter, I personally enjoy a nice blueberry tea with honey and a slice of lemon, or a fresh cup of coffee with Bailey’s and whip cream….

    My Lord makes fun of me for liking my coffee to taste like ice cream… Mistress it pleases me to find I’m in totally agreement with your views concerning the smell of coffee being more pleasing than the taste, until quite recently I thought coffee tasted like burned water. Thank you Mistress for the chance to express my views.

  4. Hello kittie (Oops, sounds like a Japanese cartoon character!)

    Welcome to my blog, nice to see you visiting here from my “Mistress Jade Training School” group on ALT.com… I was pleased to see your recent participation there too.

    Blueberry tea is one of my herbal favourites, but I also enjoy Irish Breakfast tea and Lady Grey (a milder version of Earl Grey tea).

    A big dollop of Bailey’s in a big mug of hot chocolate along with a few tiny marshmallows is also a rare treat during the depths of the Canadian winters.

    I noticed that you started your own blog — good idea! You should use it as a journal of self-discovery during your quest. I think you will find it a valuable tool and will be able to get valuable insight from others in the blogging community. Of course, it is a good idea to take some of the comments with a grain of salt!

    Thanks again for dropping by,
