Tea time…

I got a new mug!!! It was 25% off for May the Fourth. It made me happy. It’s perfect for my tea. I have chamomile in it right now. It says “Rebel” on the other side. I’m a HUGE Carrie Fisher fan, so this makes me happy. It’s just the little things. Photo by me.

Experiments with jello!

I tried to eat solid food for the first time since Wednesday morning. Oops!!!!! This particular experiment failed. I just cannot tolerate them as of yet. It’s going to be a problem down the road.
