Rhonda, at the Ambleside Online community, encouraged us to have a tea time day in the week, and many of us did. I drink a lot of tea. I was a coffee drinker in Spain, then went through a period of oblivion, and my lovely mother in law, my husband, and my dear friend Heather, made me a tea crusader!
Tuesday we set the table this lovely. The girls did. They always enjoy decorating, setting the table nicely, and they wanted to use my special china cups I got from Shang, my friend from Taiwan. I need to show you those cups next time. I let them use those chickadee cups instead.
We had some cake left over from their cousin’s birthday. They chose decaf coffee, and I chose mango tea. They played Andante Cantabile, by Tchaikovsky -which I am also listening to now-,and it all was nice if quick. The girls talked about plans for the upcoming week. And life was very good.
And this is why I like blogging. To reflect a bit on our daily life. That Tuesday was a very hard day. My daughter has had a expander for months, and now braces, she had two different incidents, lots of pain, we had spent our life at the dentist, everything was a drama that morning… but still life is good. It is nice to sit, look at your life through the lens and the beautiful and calm pictures, and reminisce about a quick yet special moment in a normal yet special Tuesday.
