Traveling with Tea
Many years ago I used to look forward to going somewhere special for a cup of tea. A nice hot cup of tea prepared by someone else just seemed to taste better than at home. But ever since the McDonald’s hot coffee court case, drinking tea away from home is usually disappointing with below boiling water and tasteless teabags. For about 15 years, my husband and I have been taking our own tea with us...

Matcha Bowl Obsession
Some of you may remember reading my other blogs about Matcha Magic and Matcha in the Morning. It’s been a year and a half now since my husband and I have been drinking the Japanese green tea Matcha every morning along with our morning vitamins. We actually don’t take very many vitamins, but I do take a blood pressure pill and a few other things like Healthy Life Harvest Aloe Vera, Borage...

We were so delighted to pick up a bushel of fresh peaches along the road on...

Words with Friends and Lovers
As we celebrate our 40th year of marriage and document 40 things we’ve experienced over the years or new things we’ve never done before, I have “number 10″ to tell you about. A couple of months ago while browsing the Apple store, I asked an employee what the most popular iphone app was. He said he thought the Words with Friends scrabble game was one of the top ones. So when...

Reading Together Separately
My husband and I are both readers. That is a quality we both admired in each other when we first met. On our first date, we spent several hours talking about books we had read. We have quite a large library. We used to go on evening outings and spend hours at the local bookstore, each wandering around checking out the latest novels. Books have always been a weak spot in our budget. During our 40 years...
