Welcome! GREAT news on the blood work...we were so healthy the nurse sent the doctor into the room with 3 pieces of chocolate each! Lol! But this post may be late...for which I apologize in advance...because Saturday morning, while doing prep for dinner Sat. night, I tripped on our cat who was underfoot as usual, and fell off balance into the cooktop...just missing hitting my face on the edge by catching the edge with my wrists...ooohhh such pretty colors have appeared...and twisting my back. So, as all my photos are on my desktop and as Blogger doesn't like iPad...this post will have to be done in small increments for just as long as I can sit in my desk chair...sigh...if it isn't one thing, it's another!
As some of you may know, we are repeat offenders as far as Alaska cruises go...especially because we live near ports and can get some killer last minute deals...the residents of other cruise port cities, like Miami or Los Angeles probably have the same story...so we were up in May for a cruise...and I always look for tea...
I came home with 3 varieties from an Anchorage tea blender and coffee house called The Kobuk that looked good, but actually bought them in Skagway.
The first is called Winter Berry Blend which features black tea, raspberries, peppermint leaf and chocolate and smells and tastes wonderful.
This is their Samovar Tea....which is the Russian tea urn depicted...right in line with Alaska's Russian hertage. The Tea smells and tastes divine! Like a spicy chai black tea, lots of cinnamon, orange and cloves.
The third variety is called Drowsy Bear, and is a combo of chamomile, star anise, rosehips, licorice and orange peel. My husband has an herbal drink like Sleepytime each night, so I thought we'd give this a try, and he has really enjoyed it. So much so, we may order it online.
If folks are coming to Alaska from the Southern states, they often ask...do we really need a jacket? This is the Sawyer Glacier, in Tracy Arm...what do you think???
And that brings me to my Alaska Giveaway.....
A package of Wild Blueberry tea...got this last year, and enjoyed it so much bought more for this giveaway....
As it's Alaska, thought I'd give you a pack of Gold Nuggets...chocolate that is...
A fridge magnet...so you can remember to visit the glaciers before they disappear...as many are shrinking....we have seen the difference in many over the years...
Slipper socks...me in the morning before my cuppa....you too???
And a small, hand painted Matrioshka doll...painted by Russians in Skagway...a traditional nested wooden toy doll. So...there you have it.
