I forgot the socks.

December 17, 2008


I had some very nice moments* on my birthday – the highlight was a hilarious pair of socks that Kate got me….. that I left at school.  They said “Reduce, Reuse, Regift”.  PERFECT for me!  I’m so sorry I forgot them.

So, you have to look at a thermos again.  I’m in the habit of making a thermos of tea to take to work.  It’s become my habit in the morning to drink several cups of warm beverages to try and make my voice sound normal again, and if they’re all cups of coffee I shake so hard my hands are blurry.  So I have some loose tea that I normally brew up in a French press. (Tea has less caffeine than coffee, right?) Today I figured out that I could use that tea ball that’s been sitting unused in a drawer for years and just stick it in the neck of the thermos to brew. Woo-hoo!  I don’t have to occasionally rinse out wash out that press every morning!

Pretty little winter thermos. You’re my favorite.

* Some less-than-nice moments occured, too.  One of them was forgetting my thermos of tea at home.  *sigh*

    First post! Guess it helps that I’m just now going to bed, eh? I forgot to send you Birthday wishes yesterday, so hopefully you’ll still accept them. Happy Birthday(yesterday), Lauren!

    Ha! I saw those socks when I went shopping for Monique!

    I love your thermoses. It’s sort of like looking at my new purses. We have a similar affinity to thermoses (you) and purses (me).
    Happy between-your-birthdays day!

    Gee, my voice is out of whack too…I was told by a co-worker that this recipe really works so I bought all the ingredients, but I haven’t had the nerve to try it yet. How about you go 1st…


    Your thermos makes me crave snow…have you had any yet?


  5. Deborah Said on:

    We’ve had off and on snow for about a week. It looks like Christmas.


  6. Lauren Said on:

    We are in the middle of a little ice storm, so yes -- but it ain’t pretty snow.

    Please don’t slide off the road tomorrow, on your birthday, Lloyd! An early Happy Birthday! (I beat Brad!)
