Welcome to Friendship Tea, a blog about the daily happenings in the life of Linda, a tea enthusiast, who enjoys travel and trip planning, and is passionate about family, friends, life in Kentucky, and all things TEA.
It is our tradition in the summer (while the princess visits) to get the grandchildren together with G-ma and G-pa for family photos. This year we had outdoor photos made by our daughter's high school friends Elisabeth and Shawn Skeese on their farm. It was an extremely hot and humid Kentucky day, so we were very happy we all didn't look totally melted. The children were very hesitant to put their feet in the water because they could see the little fish swimming around. We didn't get the feet-kicking and splashing pose we were trying for, but this one with their reflections in the water was a definite keeper!
When the world is all at odds And the mind is all at sea Then cease the useless tedium And brew a cup of tea. There is magic in its' fragrance, There is solace in its' taste; And then laden moments vanish Somehow into space. And the world becomes a lovely thing! There's beauty as you'll see; All because you briefly stopped To brew a cup of tea. ~ Source unknown
