Each morning I get up and see rain drops in the pond and have to think what is it that May showers will bring? I'm sure all this rain will be good for the earth but because we had such a late Winter it is keeping the farmers out of the fields and from ploughing, this late rain in May is also.
A Mourning Dove has built her nest and settled in straight off our back door on top of the pergola, I get to watch her daily, this morning she looks cold and wet but she is cooing away happily. I haven't been blogging much over the past 2 or so weeks as I let myself get run down and then got a very bad cold that sent me back to bed. I'm thinking I'm on the mend for the second time. Yesterday I had put together "Team Grandma" and walked for the Alzheimer's society "Walk for Memories." Guy and I represented our team as Grandma's Tea Room and went dressed as we do in the tea room. I got recognized for my efforts in finishing the 5 klm in heels, that's effort.
I wore a different hat and Guy had on his black tie and diamond tie pin. That's something you don't see often, I mean tie pins, I don't believe I've seen them at the jewelers in a long time.
Today is another day and I'm starting it off right as Grandma's Tea Room
is open for the season and today I'm having tea
I've refreshed all my wee bottles of tea and made a rather large, fresh batch of
Grandma's Special Blend
A very favorited flavorful fruity green tea
I know ah, cake! so good, this week we celebrated a one year anniversary with our son. One year ago today he had his motorcycle accident, if you all remember? It was such a hard time for me, vapors - anyway we got him a cake, card and gift card to kent. He looked up at me with half a smile and said,
"thanks mom, but there are just some things you don't want to remember"
The plate a special one as mom wrote before she passed away that she wanted me to have this La Petite Rose collection that had been in the family for so long. Each time I take out these little rose plates I think of her.
Hand embroidered napkins, a must and beautiful handwork
I love this cup and saucer it is bright and cheery and restores strength in me when I have a cup of tea out of it. Do you feel different drinking from different tea cups, or does that only happen to me?
The month of May is Stroke Awareness Month and my dad drank from this tea cup one of the times he visited me from Ottawa years ago, he is a survivor of a Stroke, it takes a great deal of the quality of life away. You should know the signs of a stroke, look for them here.
Wishing you the best on this day,
Lord! watch over us as we venture into another season, bless us and
restore our faith. Amen,
Today I'm joining these tea ladies as they have so much to offer, come and see.
