Is tea a good cleaning agent?

why yes, it is!

unless it has sugar in it. but old timey chinese restaurants used to use a little bit of leftover tea from the ubiquitous pot on the table to wipe it down. i guess it's slightly astringent to help it clean.

i'm sure that's not exactly within the health code, though.

My hardwood looked pretty nice after the tea wash.

If I wake up while it is still morning tomorrow, I'll poke my head out and see what's up outside.

Good morning. I am on my second cup of coffee already. I have two activities (no make that three) planned Change my bed, make a big pan of boxed brownies for the parade tomorrow and then do nothing. We have rain scheduled for today, so it is a good day for baking.

I pitched a fit about when they were going to turn on the heat. Now that we have it, I don't need it. It has been really nice weather everyday. I wish I could join the leaf peepers out there this weekend. Or maybe I don't. I saw the traffic last night of all the cars headed north to NH. I think most of them are still stuck in traffic. Perfect weather up north to go leaf peeping.
