Too fast

We're already half way through the month - it's going by too fast! I have been watching, almost daily, some kind of ghost related show. They are like my secret pleasure, even if I don't necessarily believe. I also bought myself a new witch hat. I totally rock it.

Today I am drinking a spicy cranberry black tea.

My friends all know now that my husband has a new love in his life. I four legged little furry creamsicle colored handful. And he is absolutely smitten.

So today I am drinking a black tea with peach, apple, and cinnamon. I am keeping with the Hallowe'en theme for the month. Peach tea to honor the little furball, in a black cat themed mug to honor the month long festivities.

A little bit Irish

My ancestry on my mom's side is Irish, and I happen to own a lot of t-shirts with Irish themes. I wear them year round, yes, even in October. I also have a fun tea mug that I am using today, drinking a green tea with hints of ginger and pear. Green tea in a green mug. And, of course, I'm wearing an Irish themed t-shirt, too.

See the handle?

But look inside when the tea is gone:

He's a keeper

Hubby had to make a stop at a bathroom while on the road the other day. I guess he didn't feel right using the establishment's bathroom without making a purchase, so he brought me home a very large iced tea. He's a keeper.

So I sit here and sip a very lovely herbal super berry tea, with strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries.

And the other side:

Just breathe

I have spent a great deal of time chauffeuring people back and forth from one appointment to the next. I do it happily, but I'm also glad to have a day to myself, so I can just breathe.

Breathe in deeply the scent of a delicious tea. Today it is a golden peach black tea.

Happy Birthday, Beautiful!

Today is my daughter's birthday. Yes, we will probably do something adventurous today, because that's what she likes to do. But I'm beginning my day with a Sweet Chai of Mine with maple.

Starry, starry night

Is that song stuck in your head now? Then I recommend a starry chai with cherry. I really do.

After a wild weekend, one needs a fitting tea

Another delicious chai. This one is called Wild Chaild, and it's a chai with caramel.

The mug seems totally appropriate for it.

Scary movies

I'm not one for gore. Ever. I like my scary movies scary, not gross. I'm especially partial to old scary movies. The other week I watched a marathon of Boris Karloff Frankenstein movies. Just loved it. Lots of screaming and entertaining characters.

This is my favorite time of year. Today my tea is a spiced apple chai.

Some like it hot

Some like it spicy. If we're talking salsa, I'm a mild kind of gal. If we're talking chai, bring it on.

This is an ultra spice chai.

Chai at night

Nearly all of my chai teas are made with black, or green, or even white tea. Having one I can drink at night doubles my pleasure.

This is a spice dragon red chai, made with rooibos.

Thank you, fall!

Omigosh, the cooler temps have been heaven. I've even been able to start back walking regularly at the park. It's doubly nice, because I much more enjoy a cup of hot tea in the morning on cool days. Sure, I drink it year round, but it feels like cheating when the air conditioner is running. This feels more honest.

Today it is a seven spice chai.

The adventure continues

And you thought surely my chai adventures were over. No, foolish mortal, they have only just begun! <insert maniacal laughter here>. No, really, I bet you heard some kind of maniacal laughter.

Today it is a hazelnut chai.

In a rather fitting mug, huh? Check out the other side:

Thanksgiving Chai

No, I'm not thinking about Thanksgiving yet. Truly, I'm not. I'm fully enjoying and embracing all October has to offer. But this tea is called Thanksgiving chai, and it contain both orange peels and pomegranate pieces.

Who is this, you ask? Johann Sebastian Bach. You're welcome.

Not even done yet

You thought I'd run out of chai varieties, didn't you? Not even close. Today it is one, again, appropriately named, Jack O Lantern. This chai contains something new even to me: melon temple fruit. I couldn't even find information about it. If anyone does, please let me know, will you?

See my favorite Mickey again!

Another pumpkin spice

Today's tea is labeled "pumpkin spice", but has lemon and cinnamon pieces in it, and additionally a melon flavor. Oddly, it works.

Another mug I got from the renfest. And preciously guard!

It's October, and that means...

...tea, of course! LOL! And all the ghost shows and spooky movies all month! Gods, but I love this month!

My chai adventures continue with a chai appropriately named Trick or Treat. It is a green chai with orange, pear, and pineapple.

Another mug I bought while out with my daughter.

Mulled Apple Chai

I can't help but associate fall with apples. It seems fitting that I start my day with a mulled apple chai, with apple and cinnamon pieces.

One of my favorite Disney characters.
