Rollercoaster Life: The Good, The Bad, and The Spoonie (04/11/2017)

This entry is part 14 of 14 in the series Periodic Updates

Life, Our Universe, and Pets: To start with – an accidental coffee mishap this morning might make this a bit more scattershot than usual.  If so, I apologize. We keep two Keurigs in the house, as the single cup brewing helped a ton with our widely varying approaches to sleep. Continue Reading →

Some Weeks are Heavier than Others (04/29/16)

This entry is part 11 of 14 in the series Periodic Updates

Life, Our Universe, and Pets: It’s been a long stretch.  Short period of time, but one that has felt unending. I’d mentioned that we’d found a trainer that would be willing to work with us in house, which was a lovely heartening thing. However, when communicating with her we forgot Continue Reading →

Time-Lost Update Post

This entry is part 9 of 14 in the series Periodic Updates

Life, Our Universe, and Pets: So…  been a while.  Completely unintended. 2016 has so far been the year of learning that I need to be a little more careful in how much I do and how often and when.  The body I live in is pretty beaten up, and it Continue Reading →

Chronic Pain, Hot Beverage Alchemy, and a little Parkour….

This entry is part 8 of 14 in the series Periodic Updates

Occasionally our work of tea has unforeseen, hilarious, and somewhat dangerous side effects. The morning we finished the R&D part of creating our goat’s milk cocoas was one of these times. We had finished the testing, with near a quart of tests consumed during the process, and were tossing about Continue Reading →

This entry is part 7 of 14 in the series Periodic Updates

Life, Our Universe, and Pets: The plan was for weekly updates, it really was. Then again, it has been a fairly busy and complicated month. Mister Tea volunteered to work the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta.  I’m not sure how well known this particular Albuquerque event is, but I know that Continue Reading →

Life as a Spoonie (Chronic Pain) (Treasury)

This entry is part 2 of 3 in the series Treasuries

I’ve been thinking a lot about the Spoon Theory and what it is like to live with chronic pain lately. Part of this came out of the realization that while leaving the house is a rare and special thing for me, there’s this wonderful resource called the internet – which Continue Reading →

Periodic Updates (10/03/15)

This entry is part 6 of 14 in the series Periodic Updates

Life, Our Universe, and Pets: Ever had a chunk of time where you feel incredibly busy and yet also like you are not accomplishing enough of anything?  While more time flits by then you are aware of? That’s been the past bit for me.  To a lesser extent I think Continue Reading →

Aspects (Etsy Treasury) (09/26/15)

This entry is part 3 of 3 in the series Treasuries

I do not create treasuries often, which is probably a breach of Etsy etiquette, given how many people have been kind enough to include our items in their collections. It has been suggested that I take the process a bit more seriously than is necessary. However, to feel I’ve put Continue Reading →

Something for the Pain (Organic Rose Green Tea for Pain Relief)

Creating this tea took a lot of time and experimentation. I know many women with fibromyalgia, both personally and through the business.  That particular diagnosis aside, I know even more people who experience chronic pain.  Due to my own issues with nerve pain and damage, it is something I understand Continue Reading →

Achievement Unlocked: Still Standing (Organic Non-Drowsy Pain Tea)

Over the course of the past few years I have interacted with a lot of people who suffer from chronic pain.  For some it is because of fibromyalgia, for some it is because of spinal trauma, for some it is…  any of a number of other conditions.  Sometimes the reason Continue Reading →
