A Symphony of Chainsaws

Posted by Katie on Aug 10 2014

We had a HUGE storm on Friday!!!

It knocked our power out for 12 hours, trees were torn out of the ground, some people lost roofs, etc.

We lost our garbage lid, that’s it ;)  BUT don’t worry, I found it later in the day.

Yesterday Jeff and I spent the morning helping my parents, their neighbours and my uncle chainsaw trees and carry them out of their yards.

Gruelling work.

All you could hear was chainsaws. Everyone chopping their trees and cleaning their yards.

It’s quite sad to see such old and large trees crumbled on the ground.

Jeff and I are currently watching Friends (it’s hard to believe this show is 20 years old) and I am contemplating an Iced Chai Latte.

I can’t wait to share that recipe with you!

If you could smell our cottage right now…

You would smell Christmas.

Cinnamon, cloves, anise, peppercorns, orange zest, rooibos…

I am making my own chai tea concentrate as I type this, using coco chai rooibos tea my bestie bought for me ages ago.

Oh mercy it smells good!

The first thing I am making? An iced chai latte!

Recipe to come!
