"We have reverse weather in north Texas. Jan and Feb are usually our coldest months where we get winter normally in the 40s and 50s.  It is going to be in the eighties today.  I pulled a painting from my archive to share. Back in 2004-2010 I painted a handful of these, of which two were commissions that were larger.  There is something settling doing a landscape/seascape and tying in a sunrise or sunset.    I am sipping hot tea trying to clear the morning fog out of my head with the pressure of reversed fronts out of the south. Do not believe I will be painting today.  Think it is a curl up and read a book and sit outside around noon in the 80 degrees!

Rooibos Tea

Is this a new word for you?   When it comes to tea it is a person choice for your palette. Rooibos is one of the top for mind clarity and I happen to love the flavor.  I drink it straight, no sugar or cream. 

"Rooibos tea is a type of tea that’s native to South Africa, and it has many health benefits. One such benefit is the ability to increase focus and overall cognitive function. This tea contains antioxidants that will help reduce stress levels in your brain, allowing you to think more clearly than before. In addition to this tea’s mental benefits, it can also help increase your metabolism and reduce inflammation in the body."

We have a South African store near us and I buy it in tea bags, but in bulk. Keeping it in a sealed Tin keeps it fresh!  It truly is a mind clearing thing and it has been a blessing in my life for the past six years.  My mother loves all the 'biscuits' in tins they have.  They are on Facebook.  ANTON's   We feel at home shopping there or eating there. The grand children love the candy in their stockings from Anton's this past Christmas. You should be able to order on line from them HERE. We get all our fresh bread from there with limited ingredients.
