I’m Cold, Working, Thirsty…

Posted by on December 16, 2013

I don’t want to drink coffee while working,

I don’t really want cold water while I’m outside – I’m cold enough.

I’ve been putting a cinnamon stick in my Earl Grey, just the right amount of spice for a chi-hater-spice-appreciator.  But like the coffee, I’m not wanting to drink tea while working.

I actually like drinking a mug of just plain hot water. (My mother did this when I was a child but most of the time she put just a touch of cream in it – I’m not there yet.)

So all those wants and needs, and not wants, and I’m  liking the idea of slightly flavored water, and hot for being out in the cold.

Cinnamon water in skinny thermos, turns pink quick, later cupful is a lovely warm tawny color and not to pungent.

I’m going to stick a piece of cinnamon in my skinny thermos and stick it in my vest pocket.

The first sips were great, now to see if leaving it in will be too much….

 

 

Well Dear Reader, I left the whole stick in the little thermos, stuck it in my pocket, and drank from it frequently over the time span of two hours.  It never became too strong, though it was finally very dark in color, and certainly deeper in flavor.  I’m thinkin’ I have a hit on my hands.  Well, a hit with me any way. And I love that I am finally using my little thermos for something constructive.  Now to try a chunk of whole nutmeg…

    I don’t think I would have thought to do this, but it sounds good. I would probably drink tea or hot chocolate.
