Yesterday a friend and I visited a tea shop. It was VERY quiet and the scones were delicious.
Doesn't it look pretty? The truffle was a bit chocolatey and over the top, but I ate it anyway.
Our oldest son called last night and wanted to talk about tea even though he didn't know I'd been out imbibing on tea and treats. He purchased Tetley Tea and he wanted to tell me. He also reminded me of some of the teas I bought when he lived at home. I'd forgotten about some of those tasty drinks! Lynn sent me some PG Tips tea and it is so far my favorite.
So with tea things on my mind, I washed my little doll dishes.
I did it for you, so we could look at some lovely photographs. Now, I must put it all away.
I'm having one of those days when I don't quite know what I want to do. Judging by my appearance in the mirror, I'm really tired. If you are a mother you may remember a few trying times when your children were aimless and downright naughty. My mother always says, "Don't let your children get too tired or too hungry. You'll pay." Well, I have little patience with myself when I'm feeling restless and I forget that maybe I'm tired. Tiredness doesn't have to make sense, does it? If we had adequate sleep during the night and we've exercised regularly, we shouldn't be tired, right? Wrong. Sometimes our sleepiness is not predictable. So I am going to flop on the couch and read some Elizabeth Goudge, thank you!
I never run out of things to show you. I'm glad! I found three new-to-me illustrations that I'd like to share.
This is a lovely pipe smoking bunny by Garth Williams.
One of my very favorite artists: Lisbeth Zwerger.
This illustration is by Rob Hefferan. He also illustrated one of my favorite renditions of The Three Bears.
I hope your summer days hold a bit of rest. If I was your mother and I saw that you looked a little care-worn and limp, I'd say, "YOU are having a nap. I'll make sure it's quiet and when you wake up, there will be tea and treats."
I'm glad you called in today!
