Packing for a work road trip, and laughing at some of the contents of my suitcase:  2 wooden yoga blocks, a kettle, a tea cup, and loose white tea.  Oh yes, and tea candles.

Well, why not?

The tea looks and smells amazing.  Almonds, coco nibs, goji berries and licorice.  'Secret Weapon' has an amazing palette that promises to kick-start my immune system.  Which would be handy right about now.  Cream, and light green, with dashes of cornflower blue, gold, red, deep brown, and sunny yellow.

Also packing Loving Frank and Water for Elephants so I can catch up on my book club reading; and downloading some of my favourite podcasts (The Moth, Buddhist Geeks, and New Yorker Short Fiction).

This roadtrip actually couldn't come at a more inconvenient time.  I made the commitment months ago and now things are insanely busy with my project.  I feel like I will be out of office at a critical stage, but the plane tickets are bought and the hotels are booked.  So off I go to Thunder Bay and Kenora, somewhat anxious about leaving things behind.  On the other hand, this could be "just the ticket."

Thanks for your comment.
ps: I have really good luck with echinacea for immune boosting.

If I'm not mistaken, Kaarina's family owns one of the finish bakeries in Thunder Bay. You can always indulge in some nice baked goods there.. If you're lucky they'll have "semlor"..
Enjoy your trip...
