Nichi nichi kore ko jitsu – every day is a good day 

Stress finnaly settled in last week, even more so when I realized I had not done my tasteing for the week. After a weekend of relaxation I will get back into my tastings, but I think I will allow myself some wiggle room to post every two weeks if need be. I have found after my first tasteing I have lost the love to write about these teas this is why I need the ability to review when I feel it is right.
   And by following Aaron Fishers advice of focusing on one action at a time, I can enjoy my tea and then write about it there after. As for this little line I thought It was good to start my work day with Japanese quote to raise the spirit.
    If you have been over to my art blog you may have noticed I posted about a performance piece surrounding Chanoyu. This will happen in the spring, much planning and learning needs to happen before late March early April area (when I hope the Cherry Blossoms are open).  Keep an eye on both blogs as I may post about this event on either depending on the nature of the update. For those of you that have not visited my art blog the link is down below.
  The past little while I have been researching Chanoyu and hope to have enough to post about quite soon. It is getting close 11:30am now I should get ready for work.  Best of luck with your studies~

Tea Picnic- First day of Spring

After much debate Sunday afternoon if I should go to a tea house or not I opted to pack tea ware, water and lunch. Sadly my little thermos was WAY too small for my pot, note for next time: LARGER THERMOS. I think as well next time I will pack a better mat and things to make a Cha Xi (artful arangement of teaware to enhance the experience).
Either way I need to get things ready for cherry blossom viewing next month~ I am thrilled that I get to see it AND have a picnic as well.

Before you miss out an a rare oportunity head out to High Park (Toronto) and make a day of it! I personally will be going there alone or not (hopefully with friends). Enjoy the weather before it get’s too hot to handle!
