Tea Time Magazine

Yahoo! My March/April issue of Tea Time Magazine arrived in the mail today! I always look forward to receiving each issue, but I was especially anticipating the arrival of this one because I knew in advance it has a lovely article written by a New York online tea friend and an article with beautiful photographs of a fabulous tea party given by a California online tea friend. A bonus I was not expecting, is the cover photo of delicate French Macarons (macaroons). Oh, I have delightful memories of tasting these delicious macarons in London at Laduree, the French cafe in Harrods last March. My photograph of the macarons is not quite up to magazine cover quality, but it is special to me.

Join me for a cup of Harrods English Afternoon Blend as I ease into my favorite recliner and savor this special magazine for the next hour. After all, it is tea time, isn't it?

A Fun Weekend

I left the the home responsibilities on Friday to my DH and spent the weekend visiting the elder daughter and her family. The weekend included some of my favorite activities -- playing with the grandson, shopping, eating at nice restaurants and attending a Broadway Across America show in Cincinnati. Before the matinee performance of Wicked at the Aronoff Center in downtown Cincinnati on Saturday, my daughter and I enjoyed lunch in the Cricket Lounge of the historic Cincinnatian Hotel. The hotel serves a very nice afternoon tea in December but we were disappointed we were unable to work it into our schedule this Christmas season as we had the past two years. To make up for our loss, we decided have lunch there before the play. We both ordered pumpkin soup, a Reuben sandwich and iced tea. Lunch was delicious! The theater is just a short walk from the hotel. The performance was delightful! It was a memorable day. We both concluded we need to schedule more special days together, just the two of us!
