When Tamara and I were in NY, I had a wee pot of a tisane of lemon verbena after we finished our delicious dinner at Picholine. I’m always on the lookout for HTTDTLD (Herbal Teas That Don’t Taste Like Dirt) because I love tea and I love the process of tea, but I can’t drink caffeine past 11 a.m. on a regular basis. I was so impressed with the verbena! It smells like lemon and mint and is just really delicious. That’s good–because the only other HTTDTLD’s that I like are chamomile (sometimes it’s too bland I think) and rooibos. So I’ve been drinking 2 pots of it a day since I got it in the mail on Thursday.
I also just ordered this book.
Belts don’t weird me out as much as they used to (they do with pants, but I think I could learn to live with them with skirts), but I can never find ones that I like or that fit me properly, so why not sew my own. We’ll see what happens. I’m excited to try.
