I love Celestial Seasonings, they have quality teas, and their packaging is extra special. I almost hate to throw out the boxes, which are covered with quotes, explanations, and other factoids and useful information. Including the quotes, this one was featured on Vanilla Apple White: "Happiness is the ability to recognize it." by Carolyn Wells.
For several years now, I've developed a habit of visiting the tea area of stores (if they have them) and purchase a box of either a favored blend or a new blend that I'd like to taste. Sometimes the tea is tasty and becomes a favored, and sometimes it isn't exactly what I'd buy again. The Vanilla Apple White Tea is fabulous and will be a favored for some time! It is flavorful, a tad sweet, and is good hot, cold, plain, or with milk.
Now, I also visit the yarn department (again, if it is there). There, I have more restraint and can actually walk away without a skein in hand! I have quite a selection of yarns at home already and have a few projects in mind. There are a few I have started, but have been too scattered to focus on them at the moment. I'm learning that if I am too scattered, and try to work on them, that I can completely ruin the project. In most cases, I can undo what I have done and save the work. But other times, I've truly ruined the project, and then feel badly when I realize that I didn't listen to my self when I was feeling too scattered and frazzled. Sometimes yarn soothes, and sometimes I am too frustrated.
Oooooooooh, tea's brewed!
