Happy Monday!

Welcome to Monday!  I know that Monday probably not your favourite day.  But, as I’ve learned, it is all in your attitude.

Every Monday I’m sharing a little story about myself.  You need to know that this is not an easy task for me as an introvert.  Today, I’d like to share a little story about tea.img_7756

I’m a tea drinker.  Black tea, green tea, rooibos tea, early grey, chai, chamomile, I like it all!  I still remember my first introduction to tea.  It was a little tea party held at a neighbour’s house.  I was somewhere around 8 years old.  There was a little table covered with a fancy cloth just for us kids. There was a cute little tea pot wrapped up in a tea cozy.  I took a sip of tea. It was strong.  So very strong.  I couldn’t help grimace at the first sip.  I added some sugar.  Took a sip.  More sugar.  Another sip.  More sugar.  Another sip.  Delicious! img_2516

Now I drink my tea with nothing added and find it equally delicious.  If I’m in the mood for something stronger, chai is my tea of choice.  When I want something good for me, green tea is my preference. A warm comforting  cup to start my day or any time of day is an essential part of my daily routine.  And when I’m writing?  A cup of tea is usually close at hand.

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you’ll stop by again.  Why not enjoy a cup of tea while you’re reading. What’s in your mug this Monday?
