Today I'm actually honoring my grandmother (as many of you know, my grandparents raised me from birth). My grandmother drank coffee in the morning and she's the one who got me drinking it. When I didn't like the taste of milk, she began adding a small amount of coffee to my milk. Now I drink both. At the same time.
But that was breakfast, and regardless what my grandmother was doing, at four in the afternoon she always stopped and had a cup of tea. She was, after all, British. Very British.
She also had a snack with her tea each day. Sometimes it was something sweet, sometimes it was something savory. Somehow, it didn't seem to spoil her appetite, or her figure, since she never weighed over 100 lbs the entire time I knew her.
So today, I heated up my oven (and my kitchen), and made some oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. You can tell they are homemade, or the chips would be more evenly distributed.
So now it's your turn. What are you celebrating today? It should deal in some way with a drink, a cup, mug, or even an empty water bottle. Will it be art? Some tidbit you found during an internet search? Fabric? Scrapbooking? Or were you out and about sometime since we last got together? It's all fair game. Just link below using your direct post, then visit other T Stands for Tuesday participants while they visit you.
And can you believe this is the final Tuesday in June? Where has this year gone?
