Studio Friday---What's Your Poison?

This week"s challenge: name yer poison, pardner! What's my drink of choice while working in my studio? From the looks of things just about any old poison'll do!

What I take into the studio with me varies by mood and time of day. Early mornings: a big mug of French or Italian roast coffee with a touch of cream. What I drink from is just as important as what I'm drinking. A good, thick ceramic mug with a handle that feels "just right" in my hand. Later in the day I might have-----yikes!-----a can of Coke. Evenings find me drinking tea: usually herbal or decaf. And which tea depends on my mood and the time of year: when it's cold (like right now!) I want something spicy: Market Spice is my fave, decaf Earl Grey comes next. In warmer weather, or if I've just had a meal, I want something lighter: lemongrass, mint, or my favorite herbal blend, Evening in Missoula. Again, what I drink from is just as important. My best cup for tea is the little hand-thrown ceramic mug next to the Numi tea.

At this moment, I'm savoring the aroma of French roast and occasionally wrapping my hands around the mug to enjoy its warmth!

Drink up!

I too need a better stash now that I've seen yours. :)
Here's to wrapping your hands around the mug, too. Perfect for this wintery weather.

I was wrapping my hands around a big Caramel Macchiato. Um, Um, Good. Love your entire stash and I'm going to look into that Evenings in Missoula blend. TFS!
