Hello my sweeties, how are you doing today???
I do hope that this post finds you all well, and that your Thursday went by beautifully. Mine was very quiet and uneventful, which is a wonderful thing because I would take quiet days of nothing, over days of drama and worries.
I have this amazing cup of tea sitting next to me and I'm waiting for it to cool down slightly, just enough for me to be able to grab a sip without burning off the skin on my lips, or scalding the roof of my mouth.
I remember my greatgrandma, she would have very strong scalding hot tea, and she would sit for hours with this cup in front of her, just taking tiny little sips at a time. With every sip she would say "ooooohhhh that's hot", and she would draw the air between her teeth, making that sound we all do when something burns. LOL
I miss her, so very much.
Speaking of tea, I have to show you this mug that my mother in law got for Jasmine's birthday. She knows how much she loves tea, so this was a great gift for my girl.
I am thinking I may need one for myself. Goodness, it's adorable.
The housework was done, the laundry was finished, and by that I mean that it was all put away until tomorrow when I walk by the laundry basket and find another one or two loads ready to start again. Will it EVER end???
It's been nice and warm here, not too bad this week as the temperatures have dipped down to the 80's, so it's been a good time for watering the yard and watching the birds all come to enjoy the sprinkler.
I do enjoy watching them, they make me laugh, and they make me forget about my worries and stress, which I have to tell you is quite at an high right now.
See I like being in control and I like knowing what is coming, so I'm feeling more and more like a fish out of water.
I try very hard to keep it under control, but there have been a few moments where I felt like I was just going to burst into tears, and I don't like feeling that way at all.
But I'm ok, I'm doing fine and I'll get through it :)
I'm still cooking up recipes from the archives, and we've all been enjoying those.
I'm dreadfully behind on my tv shows because I'm still inhaling Fringe Hahaha
But I have a wonderful show to tell you about tomorrow and I think it's one NOT to miss, so you'll have to keep an eye out for that post in the morning.
Right now I really must get off here and go put my eye drops in, my dry eyes are bothering me so bad lately, it's to the point where I get up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night and it hurts to open my eyes, feels like they are filled with sand. *sigh*
Anyway, the cup of tea is now at what I call the "drinkable" stage, so I'm going to enjoy a big cuppa and a lemon/sugar cane cookie.
