Tea on Tuesday

Jingle's face reflects what I am feeling at the moment. As of 2:00 pm this afternoon, my summer holiday began. Bliss!

While at Marks & Spencer's gourmet food shop the other day,

I picked up Lemon, Ginseng & Ginger tea ...

to go along with Stem Ginger Shortbread Thins.

Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves - slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future. ~Thich Nat Hahn

Visit Kimmie at Art in Red Wagons for more tea. Have a great day! Friendship blessings, Tammy

Enjoy your time off. Your kitty looks so contented. Nothing like celebrating with a cup of tea (and a yummy cookie.
I wanted to thank you for visiting my blog and helping with the spelling of banquette. It's funny how sometimes a word never looks right.
I replied by e-mail as I always do, but noticed that you are a "no-reply comment" blogger. Didn't know if you knew you could change that.

Yipee, I am so glad we are going to have you around more for the summer. Perfect quote for the day.

Enjoy your summer holiday. Hope you have exciting plans.

You asked about the fires in AZ. There are currently a number of fires in southern and northern AZ. We haven't experienced any smoke here in Mesa. We do have a friend who was very concerned about his summer home in the mountains. He just got a call on Sunday that the house was still standing. The fire fighters had used a bulldozer and back burning about 30 feet from his home. That's pretty close. We are thankful that the fire fighters have been able to save many homes and small towns in the northland.

Hi Tammy,

I know the joy you must be feeling to now be on holiday. I would be content too, like your sweet cat. Hope that you and yours have a wonderful time. It was great to pop in for tea and shortbread.

Hi Tammy.....thanks so very much for stopping by to say hi. We are traveling again and I just wanted to stop here while I had a good internet connection. I, always bring tea and a wonderful little tea pot with a butterfly on it to enjoy my tea while on the road. "It is such a civilized thing to do."" LOL LOL
