I had to post the following picture in honor of,”Lost in the Prairies” and it got me thinking in a tangent….
Right now, I’m on a no coffee (and caffeine to be exact) for a year and its not really a big deal (except mornings when making coffee for my husband, or driving by a Starbucks or smelling coffee that someone, at the table next tome, is drinking and thinking….Coooooooffffffeeeeeee), because its for a good reason, but I can’t help but notice how much more I think about coffee, now that I’m not drinking it.
The fun coffee creamers that are out there….noooooooo……
I’m use to starting the mornings with a hot cup of coffee (or two, or three, can’t waste the coffee you know) and changing over to tea, there is a huge difference between drinking coffee and drinking tea.
There’s almost a feeling of a ritual with it that consists more of just pouring hot water and mixing the leaves and it had me thinking of teapots and tea cups and dainty pinky in the air as sipping the tea, though I don’t have a teapot or a tea cup or a dainty pinky in the air, but more of a semi-slurping the tea out of a mug that is more suited for coffee than herbal tea right now.
Its taking a little time getting use to, drinking hot tea, while reading a book, or checking up on messages or reading the mail.
I find my mind thinking…maybe I should make some biscuits now..or scones (there’s a great recipe for scones I posted not to long ago, by the way), but it just doesn’t have the same feel as sitting down with a cup of coffee.
I wonder why?
