Mid-Week Gems and Sharing About Myself

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all! 
Although I do enjoy a good cup of coffee, I absolutely love tea!  Black tea, herbal tea, whatever, as I drink the caffeinated ones in the morning to early afternoon and the herbal variety later in the day.  For myself, it is comforting!  I love to try new teas, as well, and my friends know this, so sometimes they will give me a box of tea as a gift, or create a package of several different types of tea.  It's funny, because I am pretty open minded in trying new types of tea, but not so much when it comes to food.  I am squeamish about certain foods and therefore am not interested in trying them.  Example:  squid, octopus, eel, etc.  However, I do like fish:  salmon, trout, shrimp, sole, cod, but I cannot eat fish if the eyes are on it.  LOL!  Sorry, it's just something I have always had a difficult time with.  :)  I realize that every person is different, and I guess this is just one of those things.  

I do not have many friends.  Many acquaintances, most definitely, but many friends, no.  However, I look at the quality of the person, so the few friends that I have are kind, loyal and true.  I am the same way in return, and enjoy the time and conversations I have with my friends.  Well, that is enough for this post.  Thank you so much for taking the time to read this.  :)
