Blogmas Day 13

Standard

A co-worker gave me this box today. She overheard that I’m a sucker for nice boxes and tins. Twelve little screw-top tea tins in a pull-out drawer – oh my! Looking at the back of the box, I can see that I would never have bought this tea myself. It’s full of additives including dairy and artificial flavours. But I do love the box!

It was a good day at work. In between customers I managed to fill a cart with fabrics to be moved into clearance, which meant the remaining fabrics on that group of tables got sorted and tidied. I didn’t manage to finish the job but I’m back in tomorrow. The plan will be to get the rest of the bolts looking neat and any empty tables will be dismantled for now.

As we approach the end of the year, it’s a good time to weed out older fabrics. I was surprised that I found quite a few with a 2019 date. Once that section is done, I’ll move on to another one.

Ah, it’s so nice to be back home with the fast wifi. It was so slow uploading the photos to WordPress while I was at the cabin.

Mr Fixit and I tested out this new blend of spices. We’ve often made turmeric tea/golden milk before but we were ordering some more food from Om Foods in the Kootenays and thought we’d try this. It doesn’t tell you how much to use for a mug, so I put in a rounded teaspoonful per cup. It was quite nice, a more adventurous mix of spices than we’d usually use, and it’s good as an anti-inflammatory aid.

A pretty fabric bag today and some pretty beads too with my Advent yarn.

I’m open to suggestions as to what to store in the tea box/tins. And if you have any good ideas for knitting or crochet projects with beads that I can use my 24 small balls of yarn for (I’ll have 600 grams by Christmas) feel free to throw some suggestions in the comments.
