And Now For Something British... Record Cold


And Now For Something British...-
I looked all over Boise (sort of) to find a new tea pot. We drink a lot of iced tea year round. With the holidays coming too, I needed a bigger one. After getting very frustrated I found one online! It's BIG, 75 ounces/9 cups and I found it here-  Englishteastore.com  It arrived today, perfect, well packed, along with a few other goodies- 2 big mugs, with the corporate logo ($2.00 each), some Scottish breakfast tea, and a pack of English cookies. I really like different black teas, so this is a new one. I LOVE the tea pot!!! It's no-drip and has an extra loop (on the left) to carry the heavy pot-






Anya liked Dave's choice of cold beverages :)


Record Cold-
This morning it was 4 degrees, a record low for this date. Thankfully no wind at all. I was dressed in thick socks, a warm sweater and cord slacks at work. Toasty! Other people complained about the cold in very fashionable, thin clothes and warm weather shoes. Really? I guess you can't tell people- dress for the weather. And driving? The road has what I call crap snow- hard packed, icy s**t that's not level, but lumpy bumpy. Lots of fun to drive in to work :) The HIGH today was 14. It's supposed to warm up a bit over the next 3 days, with another 2"- 4" of snow Friday night. Once it hits the upper 30's this will hopefully melt. I'm off on a furlough week all next week, so whatever happens I'm good! Now if I could just scrape the frozen chicken poo off the roosting area. Pretty gross looking, but at least they're laying!!! I have so many fresh eggs, it's great...

Your new teapot is simply beautiful. Makes me wish I were a big tea drinker - but it is coffee for me! Don't wish for warming up - after hitting -19 here, we are warming up and it is a mess. 14 inches of snow melting into slush that refreezes at night - you know how it goes...

We too broke a weather record. I wonder what next winter will be like.

I love that teapot! It is so nice having the extra handle. And Scottish Breakfast tea is my favorite. OMG, you are even colder than we are! I am not ready for that kind of dip in the temps. Hope you all stay warm.

It's warming up a tad, with more snow tomorrow, then in the upper 30's this weekend, a tropical heat wave! I think it may be a colder, snowier winter. But I like a "snow day" now and then :)
