Teabag Tidbits

Well, I knocked Monday off the week with a bang - bills paid, recipes filed back where they need to be, one tossed out, groceries done, library returns done, some wood work cleaned, laundry done (it dried in 20 degree weather because it was very windy), and a crock pot dinner. 

I had plans to can on Monday.  Ha ha ha ha!  Yeah, didn't happen.  Bill paying hasn't been fun lately, so it was either chamomile tea or a shot of whiskey.  Not to alarm the kids, I drank the tea. 

Short post today. Enjoy your Tuesday.

Hee-hee, I know what you mean about a cup of tea or a shot of whiskey. No kids present in our house so I sipped a generous glass of Bailey's Irish Cream over ice before bed . . . and had the best night's sleep I've had in a long time. All I can say is chamomile tea has never done that for me. ;o)

When I have a bad day, I TRY to remember that this, too, shall pass. I hope things look up.

Mama Pea, thank you for the good laugh, ha ha ha! I do have some Bailey's too. Hm.

Debbie, it's all good. Just a bit tensed while paying bills etc.

With Thanksgiving closing in on us, everyone's running around getting last minute items.
I pray it is a peaceful easy day for everyone, especially those traveling distances to be with loved ones.
Remember the reason for the holiday is not the turkey turning out just right.
It's the time to spend with loved ones. Make it count for good.
God bless.

RB, thanks. You are right about the holidays.
