Adagio Tea, Take Me Away!

A good cup of tea can soothe any trouble! Fortunately, our Adagio Tea order arrived this afternoon. Read on to see why we needed this!

I'm not really into astrology, but a friend reminded me that Mercury is in retrograde right now. In a nut shell, I think that means that whatever can go wrong will go wrong. That seems to have started for me Friday afternoon. While sitting in the carpool line at school, I noticed that my truck seemed to be idling a bit faster than usual. We didn't think twice about it but went on out of town as we'd planned this weekend. On Sunday afternoon, husband noticed the truck was running a bit hotter than it should, so he phoned his brother who is a mechanic. The instructions we received were to park the truck or risk burning up the engine. OK. There was no chance of driving the truck to dear brother to have him do the repairs, so we had to settle for a dealership. Husband spent all...day...long sitting in a dealership waiting room waiting for the car to be repaired so we could get home. He and I both missed work, and daughter missed school. Fortunately, we got the problem (a worn out thermostat) repaired and got a new rear end brake job for under $500.

We got home about 7:30 or 8 PM last night, and daughter went straight to shower and get herself ready for bed. The alarm system smoke/fire detector is in the hall directly across from her bathroom. Did you know that steam from a shower will set off an alarm? We had a nice visit from the city firemen and police officers last night.

Let's see....what else went wrong? I didn't take any knitting photos. Oh, and the toilet kept clogging Monday morning and I had to keep plunging every time it was flushed. At least it didn't overflow. LOL!

Finally, after a long day at work, we can sit down and delve into the box of Adagio tea that the Fed Ex guy so lovingly placed at our door today. There's a sampler of Pina Colada (of which I'm presently partaking), one of Cherry, and one of Oolong. There are two bigger tins, too--one each of Peppermint and Spearmint. Mmmm mmm. Finally, there is a nice toy in the form of IngenuiTEA. This is the coolest little tea pot I've ever seen! You put in your tea, pour in the water, wait for it to steep, set it on top of your cup and VOILA! I am so loving this thing. Husband thinks he's taking it to work with him....I don't know about that. I guess we'll just have to order another one. Many thanks once again to Amanda who turned me on to Adagio Teas!
