I ordered this tea for myself last week and it arrived yesterday.  I love it.

Tea. Earl Grey. Hot.

I will freely admit that I ordered it solely for the tin.  I mean yes, Earl Grey is one of my favorite teas, but DID YOU SEE THE TIN???

It's official Starfleet-issue Earl Grey tea.  How could I not get this.

The brewing instructions are hilarious.

Tea. Earl Grey. Hot.

The tin was the main reason for the purchase, but the tea inside is a nice bonus.  I think it's Adagio Earl Grey Bravo.  A very strong Earl Grey blend with orange rind and blue cornflowers in addition to the regular black tea and bergamot.  It's powerful but yummy.  (Rather like Jean-Luc.)

Tea. Earl Grey. Hot.

And, since it's November 23, 2013 and a very special day in the Doctor Who universe, I have been sipping it all day in my Doctor Who mug.  Even though I don't have cable and won't see the 50th anniversary special today, I stand with my fandom.

Tea. Earl Grey. Hot.

Pardon me, I think my geek is showing...

Emma surprised me with breakfast in bed this morning.  She made me waffles from scratch!

I love my big growing-up girl.

Big girl!

I present a photo:

In the garage.

This picture is significant for two reasons:

Item #1. My car is in my garage. It has been in the garage for the past two weeks, and though we have had frosty nights and snow, I have not had to scrape my windshield once. I love having my car covered.

Item #2. This evening I popped the hood (in the garage!) and successfully figured out how to replace a burned out bulb in my front headlight.

All by myself! Well, with the manual. Still, I rock.
