Tea, Coffee, Soda...What Do YOU Drink During the Day?

If you are anything like me, you spend at least part of your day sitting in a chair behind a desk.

Although I do not drink coffee first thing in the morning like most of the world, by two o'clock in the afternoon my body is crying for caffeine.

For me this caffeine fix comes in the form of tea. I feel there is something magical even in the ritual of the brew.

My fave is black tea, although I know plenty that drink green, white, or herbal tea these days.

I love chai, but I seem to favor it in the winter, and I prefer iced tea in the summer.

My jolt of choice used to be Coke, but after realizing it had far too many calories, and was possibly causing me to gain some weight, I dropped soda altogether, and hopped on the tea wagon.

The most consumed drinks worldwide are:

1. Coffee
2. Tea
3. Orange juice (this surprised me)
4. Beer
5. Coca Cola
6. Wine
7. Vodka
8. Energy drinks

Where is water?

I know many sit at a desk for work, to color, to write the next bestseller on the New York Times list, or even pay bills--and I am curious--what do you drink during the day? If you have any tea faves I'd LOVE to know.

Coloring from the Past

I spent many hours coloring when I was a child and I loved every minute of it.

I loved Disney, and Cinderella was a favorite. I think I still have one of the coloring books. I loved the page where the mice made her dress. :)

Another Disney fave was Chip and Dale.

I also liked to color Scooby Do, The Munsters, Casper, and The Flinstones.

Now I loved The Beatles too--but this is one coloring book I can't say I remember. Is it my imagination or is this kinda creepy...

I am glad coloring is making such a comeback. If any of you remember any coloring books from the good old days please tell me!
