Winter blahs

Tea timeI have a confession to make. I’m over winter. Done. Kaput. Finished. New England winter has been belligerent and very slow in saying ‘bah-bye.’ Don’t get me wrong, I adore cold, crisp, white air winter. Just not THIS long.

My purple tea kettle and fancy tea cup called out. Really, I was procrastinating a writing assignment I’d been dreading for weeks and today it’s due.

Peeled and sliced ginger, a teaspoon each black peppercorns, coriander, fennel, cumin, and several cardamom pods steeped in boiling water. Spice tea heals a host of boogers – boredom!, inflammation, dehydration, lethargy, and mixed with a bit of maple syrup, the soul.

The simple act of boiling water and mindfully measuring out spices not only calmed but invigorated.  Tea is finished






So much so, a photo shoot was born. Creative juices flowed from this steaming cup of energy. Tea is poured

The tea is drunk. The article written. (And pans washed, kitchen scrubbed, office dusted.) Submitted. Waiting for edits from my editor – blah! The cycle continues. Guess it’s time for more tea!

Psssst…….truth is, add ice and this is a refreshing summer drink. It’s not just for winter anymore.




Perfect portions, please
Need breakfast to lose weight? Maybe not!
