October Photo Challenge: 21. calm

There wasn’t a lot of calm going on in our household today. We are reroofing our pergola so we had 4 adults and 2 children and stuff EVERYWHERE! At the end of the day (and plenty of other times on different days) I need one of these to keep me calm after the daily whirlwind that is my children. I drink chai tea religiously. I don’t think its what I drink that is important to me, but more the ritual of sitting down and having time to sit and think while doing nothing. I am pretty specific about that last part. Its best not to ask me to complete a task while the tea drinking is happening. The response will be politely terse, not calm.
