Amazing Grace...errr Leaves

It was a Monday in the truest sense of the word. I have found that my mondays usually are better if I start the day off with a good oolong or black tea as I am getting ready. I try to get everything ready in my Zarafina tea maker the night before so all I have to do is hit brew. But I had one of my migraines yesterday so about all I did was listen to a book in a dark room. Luckily sound doesn't bother me when I have one of those blasted things or I would go batty with the combo of pain and boredom. So anyways, I started out my day without any tea. Never a good thing on a Monday. I did get some iced tea once I made it to work but it just isn't the same at all. Mondays in the sales department are usually busy and a lot of people really jam on the sales. But I almost always manage to get low numbers. Must be in my head or something. Can you tell that I don't like Mondays? Oh and our internet was down today...grrrr...

It is now 8:30 at night and I am finally home. After work, I had to run to Target to pick up a few things including a prescription. The ambian that my new doc proscribed just doesn't work for me. Oh it puts me to sleep but 2 to 3 hours later I am wide awake and not able to get back to sleep. This has been going on for almost a month. Since she only gave me a 30 day supply with no refills, I picked up a refill of my trazadone. At least I know that I can sleep on it.

The first thing that I did once I unloaded the bags and fed the dogs was hit up my tea supply. Since it is evening, I didn't want a tea with a lot of caffiene. Just something to help me relax and brighten up my day/evening. As I have mentioned before, I review teas for Teaviews and one of the teas that I sampled recently was a Jasmine white tea and it was wonderful. So I set some of what I had left to brewing. The scent of jasmine wafting about my kitchen and I start to relax. Now I sitting in my recliner with my laptop and my tea. Just the scent and taste is enough to make my day better. Now I can laugh at my monday. Isn't it strange how some hot water and some leaves can change a person's whole perspective.

I sure hope that you had a good Monday and a better Tuesday!
