Ok it dose not really feel like the week is over.
The reservists are on deck for drill this weekend.
Not much to recap this week. Spun my wheals allot attempting to get something done only to hit roadblock after roadblock. Step 1 step 2,3,4, ect.
So I will also be taking this week’s tasks into next week. Joy!
Rich in vitamin C, its slight bitterness and fresh flavor are fascinating. This tea uses premium greentea leaves only.
This is my standard. I have become accustomed to drinking some quality stuff and I don’t mind paying $20 for 100gr of the good stuff, when I can afford it…
This tea includes hulled rice kernels, popped rice, gunpowder leaves, which is very finely grinded soft-top buds(called Matcha), greentea leaves, and stems. Matcha is rich in chlorophyll.
This stuff is ok when you can’t afford Sencha. It will do the trick, and it is not as spendy.
The top bud stems mixed in greentea leaves add natural sweetness.
Do not believe the above propaganda! This is what I have been drinking lately. It is not green. It pours out brown. It tastes brown. Imagine boiling dirt and drinking the juice left over.
Why am I drinking this? Because it is what I have, and it was free.
And I really do appreciate having it over nothing. Plus it gives me something to blog about.
I am not covering Matcha here. Matcha is the platinum standard. It is more spendy than even sencha and I can not even begin to express how I feel about this stuff.
There is a nice blog that talks about it here:
Ok back to the Kuki cha. Kuki cha has had an interesting effect on my tea pallet.
I had some tea “sencha” that I was a bit leery of because it came in little mesh baggy thingies. I had been avoiding it. But yesterday I ran out of Genmai cha at work and this is what I had left. Not much in English on the tea package. It says “Hoshi-No-Ocha Tea Pack” I think that means I want tea or some such nonsense. Guessing by the diagrams on the back of the package I think this stuff is meant to be made for cold tea. I am working in the Pacific North West; I decided to drink it hot.
But the whole point it I am really appreciating this tea, and I think that may be a direct result of the Kuki cha. If it had not been for the Kuki cha I may not have opened up this tea pack for a while. Silly human…
Sitting has been regular, morning and night. I got another cold. Been playing the flute every day accept one day where the cold was so bad every time I tried (non-tried) to blow a note I ended up in a coughing fit.
Ted has a book coming out, that is cool.
Aaron nuked his blog “Gangstazen” I hope he is doing well.
My debit to income ratio has been pretty static. The economy is causing food and fuel prices to rise. This makes budgeting more interesting. Also makes getting a tengai hat that much more far fetched.
Speaking of Tengai hats, here are the current objects of desire (but I don’t feel like I am suffering without them:)
Ok, I know that one seems silly, but I have an Idea about playing in public, and well, it just looks cool to me! On the other hand my wife thinks this is insane/stupid, but then she is 40 and still reads comic books…
Shakuhachi making kit
Stage 1&2 of course!
Now this might actually turn out to be worthwhile.
It might get me to clean up my garage enough to set up a workshop.
These kind of go along with the one before.
And here is today’s horror scope, just for kicks:
You will probably say what's on your mind now, even if you aren't being socially or politically correct. You can surprise others with your position, but don't waste time worrying about what anyone else thinks. As long as you act with kindness and integrity, you're not responsible for how others react. Nevertheless, you can be compassionate without becoming codependent.
Ok, that is a lot more fish wrap than I planed on creating.
Hope you are well and free from suffering.
