Thanks to Local Green Stores!

When I came home from running my morning errands, I had to work an hour or so (my own set rule, I work from home usually in the evenings) for my 'paying' job and then I treated myself to some Cake and Tea:
We have a green grocery store here in town (Columbus, IN): Double Oak Farm where I get most of our veggies, fruit and eggs and meat and some other good stuff (too much to list) - and since today also pasta! :)
Lori, the owner was the first one to sell my Herbal Blends in a store - in her store. That was basically the beginning of Treehouse Herbs. Well, here's a big Thank You!!! to Lori.
For a while now she's working together with Ashleigh, who owns a bakery: Ashleighs Boulangerie. I'm so glad that both of them sell such good things.
I'm known for loving sweet things. I always have to buy something baked, when I'm at the store... today it was the Coffe Cake (again ;)) It is soooooooo good. I just love it. It's my treat every Wednesday, when I come home from the errands, I brew a cup of tea (today: 'Organic Good Morning Tea') from my store ;)) and Pecan Coffee Cake... no need to say more.

  18. It sounds as if a very *tasty* ritual has evolved. There's almost nothing better than a cup of tea and piece of cake.
