Coffee, Tea and Me


Would you believe that I have made the switch from coffee to tea.  I can hardly believe it myself actually.  Coffee has always been my go to in the morning.  Didn't think I could start my day without my hot cup of caffeine.  Then that hot mug of morning gold started losing its pizzazz.  Just didn't taste as good anymore.

So yes, I made the switch to hot tea.  You know what?  I am really enjoying my morning tea.  I am actually quite amazed at the transformation of my morning ritual.    Are you shocked?  If you know me well you probably are.

At Walmart I found this cute little wall hanging sign with the painted clothes pins.  Perfect.  I have several potted herbs that I carry in the motor home and arrange at our front door when we arrive at our various stops.  The clothe pins hold cuttings from my traveling garden and dry my herbs perfectly for my tea.  Black breakfast tea in the morning and herb tea as the day progresses.  Apple mint, lemon balm and chocolate mint are my favorites and I just added a pot of lavender to the garden.

This tea party loving gal can feel a little more legitimate now that she really enjoys tea and has put the percolator away - at least for now.

& Hugs,
Mèmére

Changing Tuesdays



No more Tempt My Tummy Tuesday for a while at least.  The Langlois' are trying to change their eating habits so I am thinking better quit posting all those tempting cookie and candy recipes.  First tip for weight loss - quit scoping out the dreamy recipes online.

So Tempt My Tummy Tuesday will now become Traveling Tuesdays, as in get on the bus and see where we are going.

Left Mesa, AZ this morning a little after 8 AM and landed in Albaqerqe in time for supper.  Zapped some leftovers and then Daisy Grace and I went out and walked around the RV Park.  Our second time to stay here and I took pictures but they haven't come across from my phone to computer yet.

I did find a few from last visit.  Love all the vintage cars and RV's grouped at the front of the park.





We are headed to Kentucky to spend the summer with our 4 grandkids and their parents too of course.

Really looking forward to time with this little charmer.  Tanner Paul is 4 1/2 now and this picture was actually taken late last summer with his best friend, Shyla.


So come on by and see what's happening on Mèmére's Great Adventure Bus (as one of our grandchildren named it).  Will try to keep our travels and adventures updated on Tuesday.  I will let you know if my change on Tuesday makes any change in the waistline.

& Hugs,
Mèmére
