Earl Grey Tea. #tea Time-Me Time

I find it a little bit funny how I seem to choose Earl Grey NEARLY ALWAYS, even thou there are others teas avalable.
Fruit tea is also nice especially berry ones. I have several kinds of Earl Grey Tea. 🫖🍫🍩

I am proud of myself today: did the washing up, some laundry, cleaned the toilet, the bathroom sink and polished the bathroom mirror ( this mirror hasn't been polished in at Least 15 Months ). Now I am sitting on my sofa and drinking tea. This community helped me to do these things today instead of

Missing my parents. #TheMighty #CheerMeOn #checkinonme #liftmeup #tea time

In English this day is called The Good Friday but in Icelandic it is called Föstudagurinn langi ( The Long Friday). I am not sure how the Icelandic name came about, it must be because the events that happened in Jesus's life on this day. When I was a child,here in Iceland, there were many things you weren't, shouldn't or couldn't do on this day. Among those things were: not playing cards or any board games, on TV there was ALWAYS SOME TRAGDIC OPERA, no ice cream shops were open ( we as a nation really love ice cream and eat it around the year )and everything was closed. This sounds weird, right, especially when the main religion is Prostandt not Catholic. Today you can do almost anything as on a regular day except every goverment offices are closed. I took all of ,,these rules" very seriously as a child, was very obinent then. Sometimes when my mom was going to play cards with me, but suddenly rembemered it was The Good Friday, I almost felt some kind of guilt of even being thinking of playing cards! 😆😆😆 My dad would on Easter Sunday put our big chocolate eggs filled with candy on display on the piano stool and we began enjoying them ( each member of the family had their own egg ). My dad died suddenly 31 years ago and my mom died 14 years ago do to illnesses ( she was 81 ). My parents and I had a very good relationship, they both were kind and loving, don't get me wrong there some problems in our household like in everybody's else's. I miss my parents equally in good and bad times, these days it is a bit more then often before, why I am not quite sure of. So many memories, trips, holidays, parties, car rides, conversations and so on. Happy Easter everybody! 🐤🍫🐇😊🏵

Showing off the big mug I bought myself as an early Christmas present from me to me 🥰

It’s 700ml / 25 oz and I find it useful on two accounts. First, it helps stretch each teabag a bit further (I am a huge tea fan) and second, it also means less trips to the kettle. Win-win!

I spoiled myself with one of my favourite teas from Fortnum & Mason—lemon curd green tea. This is me enjoying the last teabag and raising my mug to you my fellow spoonie warriors ❤️

Sending virtual Yuletide spoons,

Physical Health

I tamed my pizza or taco craving with strawberries and herbal tea in a favorite mug. I guess Tierra Drollinger is rubbing off on me because I bought both herbal tea and fruit tea. This decision has helped me make better food decisions because I find the tea filling and it tastes good.

Nanny's Tea

Last year my family and I had a lot of losses due to aging family members. The bright side to this is that before losing my one grandmother, who shared many trips, stories and history with us. I was able to organize a Tea Party for her and her 6 granddaughters. It was a special day and I am so glad I was able to do this with her before she got ill. My nanny also was an avid tea drinker. When ever we needed to talk it was over tea. The last thing her lips tasted before we lost her was tea I had made for her and I. This year I again organized a tea party to remember our grandmother and to share her tea pots that she wanted us all to have. Love always and remember the little things you share over tea. :) #CelebrateLife #tea


An Evening To Remember

Tonight, I realized that the music that I was playing had been played many nights where I was crying my eyes out. The higher tones, mixed with a low tones... Binaeural beats and Isochronic tones.


The soothing sound used to help me to find something to breathe to when I was feeling so #anxious about #Death . I thought about how my mother, father, brother, husband, relatives, etc would all die. I used to cry so hard. I cried for years endlessly, just hyperfocused as soon as my head hit the pillow. Sometimes, I still do. I often get myself so tired now, that I fall asleep before those thoughts can come attack me.

I drink #tea to help me #sleepwell . I do not know what I would do if I did not have tea or have the melatonin, and on really bad nights, Ambien or Klonopin depending on the level of anxiety I'd either take one or the other. (NEVER both at the same time, in case you were wondering.)

I have to think about how #strong I am and how hard I have worked to become the person I am in this life. Things are not easy, they are not easy at all... but that is no excuse for me to not ever keep trying to do the best that I can do, even if I do not feel my best. #MentalHealth is important, just as much as physical health. I have a long ways to go, but I do not think that I will ever be a finished product. I know that #god has a plan for me, and #Jesus loves me endlessly.

As I take a moment tonight and listen to this music.. I cannot help but feel sympathetic towards my past struggles and the girl I know. I am here in the future to support 'her' in the past to let 'her' know that she is not alone and that I am right here, still strong.

Sweet Dreams. #sleepwell

Have you met Lady Grey?

I'm a big fan of Earl Grey (which I generally attribute to Captain Picard), but apparently the Earl's whole family got into the game. Twinings has this Lady Grey tea with a dash of citrus that's really great in the morning.

Lady Grey was probably just made up by Twinings lol. I just wish they made big boxes of it like some of the other varieties! #tea
