Don't you love this illustration? Ernest H. Shepard was a beautiful illustrator. This one reminds me of that lovely tidy mood that hits me about five times a year. LOL. Pooh's legs being used to dry the tea towels. Rabbit so busy with his wash tub. Well, it is the cozy season and time to order our homes in preparation of the holiday season.
We had book club this week. I picked the book and they didn't really like it. Oh well. It was one of those afternoons when I run out of steam after throwing myself into cleaning and shining all morning. It's okay. I am 61 years old and I don't have the stores of energy I once had. All that to say . . . there were flowers around and having ladies over to have snacks is always very nice.
English muffin bread and raisin bread. I think it's time for some Russian tea and a piece of toast. I'm trying to eat things that are easy to digest because it's time for my routine procedure (you know the one that requires cleansing) and it's scheduled for Tuesday. Oh well.
When I had Lynn and her husband here and then our Australian friend, I used little pitchers for their milk when they were having tea. I just dump my chosen creamer into my mug (straight from the refrigerator), but it was kind of fun to be fancy.
Why don't YOU stop in for tea?
I didn't have as much sewing to do for Kelli's upcoming productions because she has many very generous helpers now. I still put it off and put it off and finally prayed that God would give me huge verve to sew. He did! Both Sam and Lizzy play the same role (in two different casts). So I made just one costume for them. Aren't they cute? I had to make the mayor of Whoville's costume, too. And Mrs. Mayor. All done now! YAY!
I may have shown you this before but Timothy has a thing for the shower drain and I think it's so funny how he paws at it, loosens it, and then takes it away (in his mouth!)
It's snowing today and he's cold. I hope we can still drive to our small group tonight. The roads might be bad. I love our small group peeps. They are young and full of love. Listening to them speak fills me with hope.
God be with you, kind reader. I'm not sure who is coming for Halloween, but I'll take photos of the little darlings that DO come.
Have you eaten any Halloween candy yet?
Do you like donuts and apple juice?
What do you have for dinner on Halloween night?
Thank you so much for popping in.
