martini's are a close second!
I wanted to share with you an unusual new tea from the UK that is dazzling my taste buds.
It sounds like it might be hot and spicy but it is extremely well balanced.
The cocoa is the top note and there is no caffeine to keep you awake at night.
I brewed a mug and went to bed early and read a few chapters in my book.
Summer at Tiffany
which I am enjoying as it is a perfect light read to ease into slumber.
In order for me to maintain my sanity I need to go to bed earlier rather than later.
I have always needed lots of sleep.
My greatest luxury is
waking up in the morning refreshed and rested and taking my time getting out of bed
I am very very fortunate that Mr. HB brings me a cup of tea every morning before I get out of bed.
(thank you honey!)
My dear father did that for my Mother every morning too
I often think how hard it must be for her
since he has gone
to have to get up all by herself and brew her own pot of tea...
she has many more important reasons to miss him
it is just that at the start of her day now
everyday since he passed away
is the sad reminder that she is a widow.
Last Friday when we went to the Marina for my birthday sushi dinner
my BFF and I both had a Grey Goose martini
the bartenders there mix a wonderful martini
so good in fact, that we had two!
Mr. HB bought a bottle and I was more than surprised to discover it is made in France of all places!
I had no idea!!
Mr. HB mixed me one on the following Saturday evening which I sipped ever so slowly...
a girl can get into trouble if she isn't careful
do you remember that classic Dorothy Parker quote?
"I like to have a martini,
Two at the very most.
After three I’m under the table,
after four I’m under my host."

Always have some food when imbibing in a martini or they can sneak up on you!
"Men seldom make passes
At girls who wear glasses."

Have some FUN this weekend!
