One of the things I look forward to is my cup of Twinings decaffeinated black tea, with a nice slug of honey. I used to drink another brand (that shall remain nameless), and when I first tasted Twinings, that other kind just tasted like cardboard in comparison! And I wondered, where have you been all my (SCD) life, Twinings??
Even though it's decaf, I still feel like it perks up my morning and offers a little luxury as I start the day. At night it's my comfort drink after a busy and tiring day with my darling kids...
Speaking of which, we had a great time at a bird observatory this week. We got to see and touch wild birds, watch the process of banding them as they make their treck to the south for the winter, and learned about their diet. We saw them get measured, weighed, and tracked for the amount of fat on their bellies. I didn't know that birds have transparentent skin under their feathers...the volunteer would hold the bird by its claws, turn it onto its back, and blow on its feathers so they could see how much belly fat it has.
We saw a Wilson's Warbler, an Orange Crowned Warbler, and a Ring Necked Dove...pretty amazing! The boys loved it and asked for more field trips like that one. Homeschool win!
Well, back to my cup of Twinings decaf with honey...hope you have a great weekend!
