The New Camera
So I’m looking forward to figuring all all that it can do and taking more pictures!
In other exciting news (and maybe the reason you’re even reading this…though hopefully not), Libre Tea recently sent me one of their Libre Tea Original tea glass infusers.
First of all, I just want to say I think this thing is absolutely beautiful! And having a tea infuser that you can take with you is such a great idea!
Look at the beautiful detailing!
Since I have never used loose leaf tea, I decided to buy some samples from Adagio Tea since I had a $5 coupon given to me from a friend ( If you want a $5 coupon, just mention it in one of the comments, and I’ll email you a certificate).
I’ve tried about 4 of the teas so far, and have liked all but 1. This morning, I had “Valentines” with breakfast, and it was delicious.
As far as the Libre tea infuser, I’ve enjoyed using it – the mesh filter seems to do a really good job of filtering the tea, only 1 of the teas (this morning’s) had a few of the extremely fine tea leaves escape the filter. I’ve tried it 3 times using the method of pouring the tea directly into the cup with great success, and this morning I tried the method of putting the leaves in the filter, flipping it over to steep, and then flipping it back over – I had a bit of a problem, which I’m thinking was my own fault – I’m guessing I should have let it sit a bit after flipping it back over before I opened the lid. Nothing leaked when I flipped it over for the tea to steep, but when I took the lid off, there was a slight “explosion” of tea, so next time I will be letting it sit – my guess is that there was just too much water in the filter area and I didn’t give it enough time to filter the water back into the cup after turning it right-side-up.
Another benefit is it is glass on the inside, but plastic on the outside, so it never feels too hot to hold.

I love finding ways to save, and this is definitely one of them – if you have any DVDs that you just aren’t watching or don’t like, you can swap them for something you would like! How it works is you list some of your DVDs, and when someone requests it, you ship it to them at your expense. Then you get a credit for shipping it to them and can then request a DVD that you are looking for and it’s shipped to you at their expense. Also you get a free credit when you list your first 10 DVDs, regardless of whether they’ve been requested by another member or not (I haven’t listed that many yet, but it’s a nice little bonus feature).
