Organic Cold 911

It’s Tea Tuesday! I’ve had an ear infection for the past few days now. And because the ears, nose and throat are all connected. Once one isn’t feeling well, then it’s only a matter of time before the other parts suffer, too.

And that is what is happening in my body. My nose is a bit stuffy, and my throat is a bit sore, nothing major. I don’t have a fever, and no one around is sick. I’m not worried, and I already have ruled out coronavirus. I’m sure I’ll be better in a matter of days.

This tea is really soothing, it an herbal tea. It is infused with peppermint, juniper, and berries. It’s a really good tea, considering it is medicine. I just have this one hot, and I add some honey to it. Not that it needs to be sweetened, but honey is good to have when you are sick. Although you should never give honey to a baby who is younger than one year old. It is because babies that young can’t swallow properly, so the honey just sticks in their throat, since honey is viscous.

The mug I used today is a mug that my sister gave me as a Christmas present a few years back. I love it so much.

Day 143 of 193

This is Thursday’s item.

I have also came across this bag. I was planning on purchasing a glass penguin figurine for my aunt for Christmas since she loves penguins. Unfortunately, my dad’s side has decided a few weeks ago that we were going to postpone celebrating Christmas. Which I don’t mind, although I do miss spending time with my dad’s side of the family. We have cancelled everything this year. They have restrictions at the retirement that my Grandpa is living at. It is sad, but at least I know everyone is safe.

So, until I can see my aunt, I was planning on just holding on to this for the time being. It’s a really cute bag/

Hot Chocolate Latte

In this Tea Tuesday edition on a Wednesday. Yesterday was a beautiful day, so I ended up spending the day outside reading a good book.

I made myself a hot chocolate latte in my cozy sweater mug. Over the weekend, I officially took out my Christmas/winter mugs and teas. I keep them in my cupboard, but now they are on display, which is always exciting.

It is extra creamy especially as a latte. It also uses real cocoa beans, so it is really decadent. It makes for the perfect treat.

Here is my special cozy sweater mug, that is my favourite winter mug. I bought it last year, as a Christmas present for myself.

Day 141 of 193

This is Tuesday’s item.

This awesome sweater was given to my sister as a Christmas present from our grandparents. It was from Christmas of 2009, because British Columbia, Canada was hosting the 2010 Winter Olympics Games the following year. For those who may not know, is I’m born and raised in Canada, so this was extremely memorable and exciting for me.

I remember I would run home from school to watch some of the games. I also remember begging my mom if I could stay up and watch the closing ceremonies since Avril Lavigne was going to sing a few of her songs. It was really fun to watch it all. It makes me a bit sad that this year’s Olympics were postponed. I feel bad for the athletes who have been training really hard to participate in these games. I hope they can all still play whenever they are rescheduled.

After my sister had outgrew this sweater, she passed it on to me. I got to wear it for a little bit. I got a lot of clothes from my sister. Which explains why I have a ton of clothes.

Although unfortunately, it no longer fits for me anymore. I have started saving and setting aside some clothes for my niece to wear when she is older. I kept this because it is apart of our history and culture. She is almost two, but she will be growing a lot.

Day 136 of 193

This is Thursday’s item.

My Dad had bought these pajama pants for Christmas several years ago. These were really cozy. I liked the colours. But unfortunately now that I have tried these on, they no longer fit me. But that’s okay, someone can enjoy them.

Vanilla Cappuccino

I really enjoy this tea. It’s like the perfect mixture of tea meets coffee, with a taste of vanilla.

It gives me the perfect energy boost to help accomplish things on my to-do list.

The mug I used was a Christmas gift from my boyfriend’s brother. I love this mug. Especially since my mugs were still at my mom’s house. And this was before we started expanding our mug collection.

Day 134 of 193

This is Tuesday’s item.

I am currently going through my pajamas. Because my sister bought me these pajamas for Christmas, I was going to save this for when my niece gets taller. I have kept a few of my clothes for her, that I think she would like. She actually has a pair of these at the moment, but she’ll eventually outgrow those.

I really enjoyed wearing these, I felt like they were really cozy.

Creme of Earl Grey Latte

It’s another edition of Tea Tuesday!

This is a creamy take of the classic Earl Grey. It has hints of vanilla. It is so delicious and creamy.

I really enjoy this tea a latte.

Here is an up close photo of the tea leaves. The tea bag is biodegradable.

This is a mug that I bought my boyfriend for Christmas. I thought it was a cute mug.

Day 119 of 193

This is Monday’s item.

It’s hard to believe that I am entering my 17th week of my decluttering mission. I am very proud of myself, and I am also proud of you who are going through your own decluttering missions.

I would love to hear any of your comments and feedbacks of the changes you have been going through.

As much as I hate to admit this now, but these used to be my favourite pants. My Dad bought me this for Christmas several years ago. Although I grew taller since then, so I no longer fit in these anymore. They were really cozy, but I have other cozier and more neutral coloured pants now.

When I was in high school, pink used to be my favourite colour, but now my favourite colour is yellow.

Day 105 of 193

I hope everyone had a joyous weekend.

105 days down, 88 to go!

I kept this bag in hope that I would be able to see my family come Christmas time, but if I don’t, that’s okay. I rather know that my family is safe then have to worry.

I kept this bag for my Aunt, she loves penguins and I always try to find something penguin-y for her Christmas present. I get her a small gift for hosting the dinner.

If I don’t see her for Christmas, well, I’m sure there will be another time I will see her.
