My Happy Place

It's 10 minutes until 5:00 pm and I'm all snuggled down sitting in my bedroom in my pajamas with an as yet to be opened 2-pounder of Twizzlers, the laptop, my purple water bottle full of ice water, a fresh glass of iced mint tea, my book, a few magazines, and Sammi.  What more could a girl ask for?

If anybody cares, here's how I make the iced mint tea:  2 teaspoons of Lipton Instant Tea, 1 herbal mint tea bag (I use Stash), 1 packet of Truvia (calorie-free sweetner), 2 cups of cold tap water, and lots of ice.  I put everything, including the tea bag, in a 2-cup measuring cup, mix it up well, and then add the ice.  Once it gets nice and cold, transfer as much as you can to your tea glass and refrigerate the rest for refills.  You'll get two large glassfuls.  It's yummy and refreshing.

We stopped at the store earlier and got the things I needed to make Carmelitos.  Don't they sound incredible?  I'm only making a small pan of them because I know they'll be so good I won't be able to leave them alone.  I have a weakness for anything with oatmeal in it.

I hope your weekend is going just the way you want it to.
