Sequestered, Week 184 (CLXXXIV)

It is an early winter thing for sure - the yen to add steamed milk, vanilla, cinnamon sticks, cardamom pods and anise stars to whatever I happen to be drinking. There is something comforting and very uplifting about seeing dear little anise stars floating in a fragrant sea of masala chai or London Fog or whatever. I have a bit of a "thing" about anise.

The experience puts a pleasing spin on a cold, snowy morning when one awakens feeling as though she has been trampled by a herd of elephants. At such times, what she really wants to do is pull the quilt over her head and go back to sleep for a while.

She reckons the world will do without her just fine for an hour or two.
