Tea: Valerian Nights by David’s Tea (YES, I’m a sucker for David’s Tea!). This is a sort of fruity, sort of sweet herbal tea. Valerian is used by people who have difficulty getting to sleep. This one has bits of caramel, apple, and coconut added to it, and it has a delicate flavor reminiscent of fairground caramel apples.

Screen Time:

I have given up watching Sliders, since my two favorite actors had left the show, and the final season was never made, so the series ends on a cliffhanger. Instead, I’m rebooting the Marvel universe, according to this CNET article. I watched Captain America and the first two episodes of Marvel’s Agent Carter this week and look forward to seeing more in the next few days!


The Knit Girllls have a new episode out, as do Ninja Chickens (hosted by ninjachickens and The dunkelgrün group (hosted by dunkelgrun.

Must Love Yarn, which features jrbirdkid and KellySpins, reached their hundredth episode in the last couple of weeks, which is a HUGE milestone! Congratulations ladies!!! If you’re ever in the Burlington area in Vermont, their shop is worth a stop, a restop, and maybe one last visit before you leave!

Have a great week, everybody!
