Trader Joe’s Green Tea infused Mints

Tuesday, March 24th, 2015

Kollar Grande Trader Joes Tea mints_72

You can get your green tea fix in a 33 ounce tumbler covered with a Kup Kollar Grande called Lavender Hawaii. The cup wrap is designed with fabric I bought in Hawaii on a trip to learn about tea farms.

Or you can get your tea fix with a colorful tin full of Trader Joe’s Green Tea infused Mints. These mints aren’t flavored but infused with matcha green tea grown on single-estate tea farms in Japan.  Green tea extract, pure peppermint oil, cane sugar, and honey are added to the finely milled green tea powder to make these lovely mints.

I love the subtle taste which isn’t overly sweet. The mints don’t leave an aftertaste in your mouth.  I keep my tin next to my computer for a splash of minty antitoxins the first time I sit at my keyboard!


Girl Scouts Cookies – Thin Mints and Do-di-dos with peanut butter

Sunday, March 1st, 2015

There are 3.2 million girls and adults grateful to Juliette “Daisy” Gordon Low, who gathered 18 girls from Savannah, Georgia, on March 12, 1912, for a local Girl Scout meeting. The girls and teens have been learning goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics selling cookies for over 100 years.

Girl Scout cookies are on sale in Colorado Springs, Colorado this week. I keep my mint cookies in the freezer so I don’t eat the whole box at one time!

To find locations in COS or your location, click the link, put your zip code into the search box, and read a list of times and places the cookies will be on sale. Remember they aren’t sold year round!


Exploring Old Town Alexandria, VA

Leaving the Torpedo Factory Art Center in Old Town Alexandria, I walked along the waterfront and discovered Founders Park. The shadows were getting longer and the air cooler.

I bought a hot tea take-out and slipped on my cup wrap. Pulled my gloves out of my coat pockets and slipped them on my hands. My drink and hands stayed warm!

Old Town Alexandria has a trolley that gives free rides to visitors up and down King Street.

I like to walk the cobblestone streets for a closer view of things and a pause now and then. On a side street I saw this dog who stood politely while I shot his photo. His owner told me he would recover from his head injury!

As the sun dropped lower in the sky, I turned back towards the Metro Station. I had had a great day exploring Old Town.

On a crisp autumn day, I rode the Metro from our hotel to Alexandria, VA to explore the area. Arriving at noon, I stopped in the Uptowner Café on King Street to eat lunch.

I chose the Prince Street sandwich with white bread instead of a bagel. The spread was scallion cream cheese. It was filled with smoked turkey and fresh veggies. The iced tea was tasty. I packed my jack o’ lantern cup cozy for the trip because it was October. This excellent lunch was a great way to begin my day of exploration on foot!
