When I make my own tea at home, I put in a cinnamon stick and a cardamon seed, reused with fresh tea for about a week. Mellows the black tea, rounds the flavor, theoretically medicinal. And a reusable coffee filter that works very well, but slows the flow, meaning I have to pour from the kettle more carefully.
Some of our fridge magnets, and equally magnetic poetry.
Finally cooler, rained through the night, merely overcast most of this morning. Soothing, a balm to the eyes, a breaking fever, a much needed bath. It's good to pray for rain when it's already predicted at 70% chance.
Rain on the construction across the street. When the rain registers in photos, now that's rain!
