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.
This Bavarian (made in Germany) teacup trio was a gift from my tea friend Nancy Reppert at Rosemary's Sampler. Nancy and I were roommates on the fabulous Tea in London Tour 2007. Nancy knows I collect teacup trios and sent this beautiful one to me "just because." I love receiving surprise gifts and especially gifts "just because."
Thanks so much, Nancy! I will think of you when I use this special teacup trio.
The BCHS homecoming parade was yesterday afternoon. The theme was "Super Heros." GJ (above) and his helper AJ (below) rode on the firetruck with City Council members throwing candy. The freshman class chose Super Man for their float below.
Sophomore class float Junior class float. The senior class chose Bat Man (below) These girls are showing their support for a fun homecoming week at BCHS! All week the students dressed to a different theme each day. The elementary participated. AJ went off to school on Monday wearing his favorite sports team shirt -- University of Kentucky Wildcat Blue, of course. Tuesday was western day. He was dressed in jeans, a plaid shirt and vest complete with red bandanna. Wednesday was retro day to dress in your favorite era. I tried to convince AJ his brightly colored tie-died shirt would be perfect, but he opted out and wore regular clothes. Yesterday was Super Hero dress-up for the high school and pajama day for the elementary. What has happened to my 4th grader? He did not wear his pjs because he is "too old." But today was hat day -- bring a can of food for the local food bank and wear a hat to school. Alas, he went off with his can of peas and his baseball cap on his head! I guess guys never outgrow their baseball caps!
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
