First of all I have absolutely NO IDEA what kind of fruit this is. I think it's one of the most interesting I have ever seen. I went to a warehouse food store, with a friend and found myself taking picture of the most amazing fruits and vegetables that I had ever seen. Then my friend moved off without telling me and I panicked. I really did. I told myself to just stand still, don't move and she would come back to the last place she had seen me. I was right.
Got to love my readers, they always come through for me: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art25602.asp Thanks Jill!
Anyway, I'm having my first cup of Rooibos herbal tea from World Market. Nothing terribly exciting about the box it came in or the overly large sealed packages for the tea. And, since you can't really see the color of the tea in my cobalt blue mug I decided to go with an entirely different kind of picture.
Sorry, tea buddies, but that's how my mind works.
I am always open to enlightenment as long as it doesn't require me to live in a cave so if you have any information on the above pictured fruit, pass it on. I try to learn something new everyday.
And.............the rooibos tea is wonderful. YUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM
Today I play the waiting game. So, it's a good day to sort paper work until the furniture arrives.
You saw the TO DO list. Quite a few things have been added to it. Some things that I had forgotten to even do, like pick up Zeus's new shoes from a shoe store not anywhere near my usual errands BUT it is near the Red Cross building and I'm due to donate more blood so there are two TO DO's that can get crossed off together. That' for another day though. For today, I need to start sorting in piles the massive amounts of paper that I have stacked around here.
The computer has done nothing for reducing the incoming amount of paper and what I deem necessary to keep.
Yes, I could just toss some piles that are months, ok, years old BUT you know and I know that something of value would be lost. Just the other day, while tackling a pile, of paper, that slid off the stool and on to the floor, I found the original stationary that Zeus bought for me, as a joke, when I would home school the kids, during the summer at Peabody School.
That's the name we gave it, Peabody School. I was the headmistress, Ms Peabody and Zeus, our bus driver, "Jimmy O'Keefe". The kids had workbooks, homework assignments, field trips and everything else I could think of to keep their little brains from falling into vegetable torpor.
I part uneasily, with paper. I have a box with scraps of paper, with handwritten messages from little hands. I have folders with care instructions for appliances that have long been sent to the dump. I used to clean out everything on New Year's Day. Haven't done that for about ten years so you see, I have my work cut out for me.
:)Bea Who may just glue the whole mess of paper together and paint on it.
