Take Time For A Valentine Tea

Enjoy many cups of tea and and quiet, peaceful time during this Valentine's Day weekend. I'll be sipping from this beautiful gold and white Royal Albert cup and saucer, a gift from my friend Mary. She purchased it for me a few years ago from a silent auction at a fund-raising afternoon tea we attended.

I am ready for tea and quiet after the damage from 60 mph winds and loss of power we experienced in Kentucky on Wednesday. First the ice storm the last week of January and the high winds this week. Makes you wonder what is coming next!?!

Nine year old AJ and I shopped at WalMart after school yesterday and he picked the "Be Mine Bear" and a bouquet of fresh flowers to give to my 95 year old Aunt Ida for Valentine's Day. We will deliver it this afternoon. She loves visits from the children and will be thrilled to learn he picked it himself.

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!

We had those high winds, over here in Arkansas many limbs came down.
We didn't lose power this time. Stay safe.

AJ is a very sweet young lad. The bear is a perfect gift of love.

Good idea... tea and more tea this weekend. We had high winds yesterday too but not as strong as you did.

And I'll bet tea tastes better in such an elegant teacup. Hope you and yours have a wonderful Valentine's Day! (Please be safe, since you all have had quite a time of it lately!)

What a sweet gift for Aunt Ida! What a sweet boy, too.

We have all been a bit battered this week I think! That's a beautiful cup.

Happy Valentine's Day, Linda. What a beautiful teacup to sip your tea from. And AJ selected just the perfect gift for a dear aunt!
