After tea and cakes: Thankful Thursday #6

May 13, 2010

1. I’ve been sick for most of the week, which means lots of nap time and lots of tea.  My lovely roommate showed me this excellent website for tea lovers: steep.it. It’s an internet tea timer that even tells you how long and at what temperature to steep your tea depending on the type (black, green, herbal, oolong, white, etc). You can also set the timer for whatever exact amount of time you’d like. My favourite detail is that the background colour of the website slowly darkens as your tea steeps! Once the time is up, an alarm sounds an there’s a pop-up window telling you your tea is ready, which is extra helpful if you’re looking at something in another window.  This site has made being sick a little more tolerable (and it’s handy if you need a timer for some other purpose).

2. My sister recently got engaged! I’ve only been selectively telling people – which has been so difficult! – to give her a chance to tell people herself. I am honoured that I get to be her maid of honour. My family is pretty tiny, so I’m excited to have a brother-in-law.
