Heather Tea

I'm back for Tea Tuesday with the same problem I've had all week.  It has been a nightmare, and I feel I need a real computer guru, but my computer guru Scott is working out of town for a month.  Where are your friends when you need them?  Since my computer is fine, my internet is fine, but my blog refuses to let me post or even look at it, I am out of options and choices.  I promise to be back soon, because this is NOT good.  I've never been away from my blog this long since 2006.

I'm at my friend/neighbor Sally's, pulling these photos off her computer's desktop so we can have virtual tea together today (say that alliteration three time fast).

I simply HAD to have this tea today, since it was sent to me by Annette (Voodoo Vixen) in a Christmas package I got last week.  Using one of my favorite cup and saucer combinations, and remembering how Annette says tea MUST be served in a proper cup and saucer, not a mug, I gladly obliged.  The tea bags are individually packaged and beautifully done.

According to the box, you should drink this tea with a bit of "milk to taste."  In my case, it was half and half, since I have no milk.  It made it extra rich, creamy, and smooth, with no "weird" aftertaste I seem to get with many teas.  This could well become my favorite tea.  In the photo it showed I was just about to add the boiling water, then invite everyone, including Annette, to join me for Tuesday Tea!

I'm so sorry for your blogger woes; I know I've been there. That's one reason I had to switch to Typepad and haven't regretted it even though I pay for it. I hope things can work out for you as you have so much to offer us with your art and words.

Stay well. Love, Marilyn

Well how lovely it all looks, a very British affair indeedy and I bet that tea tasted better because it was out of cup and saucer!!

Have you contacted Blogger to see if they can offer a solution to your problems?

i've been enjoying your tuesday tea posts and love that cup/saucer and milk pitcher.

i'm am sorry to hear about your blogger woes. some people do get help in the blogger forum, so voodoo vixen has a good suggestion. it can't hurt to ask them.

hope your problem is solved soon.

Hi Elizabeth,

That's so weird that it's your computer that won't let you get to your blog. Have you tried a different Internet thingie (like Modzilla Firefox, Internet Explorer)?

Your cup and saucer are very pretty. Sometimes I add milk to my hot tea and really enjoy it.

Happy Tuesday!

So happy to see you here E...you know I would really worry that something was up if you missed T on Tuesday!

I feel badly for you having these ongoing blogger issues...what a royal pain!

Your special tea in your special cup with sunlight streaming in certainly does look inviting!

Take care my friend

so glad to see your post...I was wondering if I should try to telephone you! hope you get this worked out...how frustrating I'm sure. maybe you could have your 'computer guru' call you and try to walk you through some possible fixes?

oh my, can it really be tea day? I have had my head buried in the studio, cleaning and sorting and organizing, finally... Heather tea sounds very intriguing and probably caffeinated... gosh I hope you can get the blog working, blogger gave me fits yesterday with my post... x

Your absence from the blog world has been noticed! Happy to hear you're well, sorry to hear your Blogger saga goes on! It leaves you more time to enjoy your tea, I guess that is the bright side.

I had a problem with blogger for awhile, but all seems okay now. I couldn't post anything, download photos or edit at all. It was very frustrating.

Halle said...

Such a bummer about your blogger issues. Can't imagine what could be the problem.
I'm glad you were at least able to pop in and say hello from Sally's.
