I love my cats

I really do. Even when they cannot pass up an opportunity to destroy the jigsaw puzzle I am working on.

After reassembling it - again - I'm gonna sit back and sip a black tea with black cherry. And chill.

So thrifty

Goodwill loves me. I imagine the employees there smiling as I walk in and hand over a large trash bag of donations, and then proceed into the store to shop. I figure if I'm adding to my *stuff*, I should also be contributing to other people's, lol. I tend to go on the senior days, and see a lot of the same faces when I do. Hey, we love our sales!

Recently I bought a mug that the cashier couldn't stop talking about. She said she had seen it and had fallen in love with it. I almost, almost, felt guilty for buying it. So today I am enjoying a black peach brulee tea out of that mug.

When my daughter moved out, I claimed her room as my "play room". I haven't been able to really do with it what I want, because it's become, out of necessity, somewhat of a catch all room. I'm sure that will change soon enough.

I even have a tea maker ready to set up for that room. I'll move some of my mugs to use there. This is one:

Today I'm drinking another sinful tea. A black tea with chocolate rose. Heaven!

And you thought my mug buying days were over

Not even close. But I guess the one I'm featuring today was one I didn't buy, so much as acquired. It was my dad's. He didn't use it as a mug, but a pencil holder. We found it on his desk. And since he was a master mechanic, it makes total sense he'd have such a mug. I'm not using it to hold pencils.

I was out shopping the other day and came across this box of teas that sound kind of decadent. I'll be sharing some with you. Today it's a black tea with blood orange.

Not sure you can tell, but the bottom part of this mug is a tire. So cute! (My dad would have rolled his eyes at that). Rather fitting, as well, because I've been working outside, which includes doing some things in our garage. And, and...I'm gonna be attempting my first auto repair soon. Go me!
