T 4 1

Sometimes tea is best enjoyed in solitude before the bustle of the day begins and the lists have been made.


After working long hours yesterday, and anticipating another busy day today, it is a real treat to sit and enjoy a cup of green tea made just for one.

And in case you think I forgot the plastic lids from last week, they simply had to take the back seat to my dear friend Dana's move. After working with her each day, I would come home and deal with many of the items we decided would be stored at my house, while packing all the fabric and other items to be stored at her house. I promise to get back to art next week. In the meantime, have tea for one or tea to share, but visit Kimmie to see what all the Tuesday Tea players are up to this week.

I'm off to mow my yard as soon as the sun is up, then more unpacking and packing to go along with my Tuesday Tea. Don't forget to sign up for my bEARTHday giveaway, if you haven't already.

Today's blog was a real accident. I was trying to find a specific blog and got Country Blessings @ Lakewood instead. Cindy, who lives in KY, is the blog owner. She has a folksy and fun blog, takes great photos, and her posts show she has a great sense of humor. Once again, off the beaten path as far as my art goes, Cindy proves you can find a great blog even when you are initially looking for a different one. So please check out Country Blessings @ Lakewood and you'll be entertained all day.

Lists? oo can you do some for me LOL Wish I was more organised and I'm sure you would say I could be, but I do think it's mainly inbuilt. I'm too lazy to be organised or more that I'd rather be doing things other that the things that 'need' doing, like cleaning and tidying and sorting my craft stuff out completely.

I have been reading a lot about the importance of making lists lately -- and this is something I need to do. I like the way you start your day!

Amen to tea enjoyed in solitude. It's my most calming cup of the day.

There ARE worst vices. :)

I'm lucky - hubby brings me tea in bed while he & the teens get ready to leave for work / school / college. I drink it upstairs listening to them - then go down to chivvy them up: bags, lunch boxes, books, bus pass etc..
Yes we were affected here in the UK by the ash - no flights in & out of the country for days & days!

I love your little tea for one tea set .... that's a good enough reason right there for anyone to decide to take up tea drinking :) Way more cute and special than a Starbucks commuter mug filled with bitter coffee :)

Happy Tuesday! Kimmie
