Snow tea day

It is snowing. It started snowing yesterday afternoon, and it's snowing again. It's the kind of snow that produces a slushy mess, so


today I'm going with hot chocolate. It seemed like the right thing for this snowy Tea Tuesday. The flowery mug is a reminder that spring is actually here.

Kimmie has all the links, so please check out what my tea drinking friends are up to today. I suspect some of them have had a bit of snow, too.

Snowing again??? Oh my goodness. Spring really is here, it's just moving north very slowly I guess. Enjoy your hot choc. tea day.

Jill said...

Yes, there is snow here too! Yuk. But what was really bad, was that, as it was falling late afternoon yesterday, it was so beautiful, I HAD to enjoy it even though I was not wanting it!

Looks cozy at your house. No snow here today-- we had it yesterday. A dusting that melted by the afternoon.Today I saw a magnolia tree with HUGE buds full of gorgeous promise.
Spring IS coming!
Cheer up!

Misery loves company Elizabeth, so I had to smile when I read you had snow!! On a brighter note the sun is out and desperately trying to melt into the snow drifts so maybe spring has sprung? Hmmm, I won't be putting a heap of dosh on it!! Enjoy your hot chocolate and I am sending you an email... just so that you know to check!!

Lovely mug for a cup of cocoa! I love hot chocolate and enjoyed some yesterday when it was only 40 degrees here! Luckily today it is over 60. Much nicer!

Oh my! I couldn't do snow. I'm a southern girl now living in a desert country. Although I gotta say, at least the snow does melt away and spring awakens beneath it -- we just had a sand tsunami that choked everything in its path. The cleanup from that is awful. Have a wonderful Wednesday. :) Tammy

Margaret said...

and just when the flowers thought it was safe to come up! love your pretty cup! mx

artangel said...

That hot chocolate looks delicious - and just what you need in the snow! We're actually having some unusually warm weather here - I'll send you some sunshine! x

Donna: said...

Maybe this will be our last snow E... wouldn't that be nice. Then we could just have hot chocolate for no reason at all. :) - Donna

Marilyn Rock said...

Perfect for cocoa! We are under, yet, another winter-storm watch for Thursday into Friday. Computer models will determine the track; if we get it, we're supposed to get double-digit amounts of snow!!! Say it ain't so!!!!!! xxoo

Stephanie Mealor Corder said...

Maybe the last cocoa for the year? Here's wishing you warmer weather without the RAIN we've had all week!
Stephanie
Oh, and that mug is beautiful!

Thought of you when I saw a fierce but wonderful old wooden rocking horse, on Suze Weinberg's blog, in a place where Norman Rockwell lived blog a couple of days ago. Take a peek here.... http://suzeweinberg.typepad.com/suzeblogz/

Marlynn said...

Thank you so much for sending it our way today, however, it is mainly a cold cold rain that is trying to do something but just doesn't know how to do it! LOL Stay warm and well, hugs

Halle said...

Snow! That must be a little odd for you a this time of year. We could get a little late tonight. We still have some patchy areas of snow but mostly just VERY SATURATED ground. Squishy.
Hope all is well with you!

Gaby Bee said...

Greetings Bleubeard and Elizabeth,

Being a big tea drinker, I too love to have a hot chocolate from time to time, especially in the evening.

If I had stopped by earlier I would have know all the wonderful things happening in you life and the visit to California. I had to smile when I saw the picture you took of being stuck in traffic for which so many parts of California is know for.

Wishing you all the best,
Miss Kitty and Egmont
