No to cooking and yes to tea. Tea is in the plans every day if I can work it out.

I'll be working this whole weekend. One of our busiest weekends. It falling on a Friday night does not help any. I figure I'll sleep some of the day away and get ready for a busy night. I think the kids and mom are going to the mother-in-laws a couple of hours away to eat watermelons and watch the fireworks. Wish it were me too...

Some Upton's Formosa Fannings Oolong in my cup this morning. It's different and won't replace my staple blacks (no Oolong will- sorry Victoria) but my recent Oolong samples are making for a very nice change of pace for me.

Happy 4th!

Little Piggy came out to see you all for the 4th of July. Hibiki-an Sencha Premium Shincha in Hagi yunomi with small kyusu. To make up for blabbing so much yesterday, I will rest my case today.

We're cooking out later today but tea will still be part of our day. Cinnamon rolls are in the oven & a big pot of Organic Monk's Blend is steeping.

It is raining here in Indiana. :( Hopefully it will quit by the time our parade starts at 10. Going downtown to watch fireworks from DH's parking deck at work.

Not planning anything today, but tea will fit in somewhere! I smoked 2 chickens Wednesday and will probably make chicken salad & iced tea.

Have a fabulous day all, whever you are.

In honor of the day, we have started out with hot tea--British PGTips. By lunch time there will be iced Luzianne tea! :P

We're grilling out burgers, hot dogs, chicken, and steaks. We've made coleslaw, baked beans, brownies, and peach cobbler. Arriving relatives are expected to bring side dishes.

Happy 4th of July!

Bah! I was gonna do that!

I have work today, but after that I will be heading out to a friend's place for a Cheeseburger in Paradise party. I am packing my tea and my tea gear :) An addict and his/her stash are rarely parted!

I may even attempt a gongfu session while out there - though that may prove VERY tricky.

Happy IT4....or whatever. Except for the fireworks and the cookout I am not much into this holiday. Although I am amused that the orchestra always plays the 1812 Overture which is a Russian song.......

In my cup: I think I will opt for Darjeeling this morning (British colony once, too)
