"A Cup of Tea and Crosswords"

I've been making an effort to "boost my brain" via crossword puzzles, Sudoku and Brain Age™ using AJ's Nintendo DS™.

When I saw the title of this paperback book, A Cup of Tea and Crosswords, edited by Will Shortz, I couldn't resist purchasing it.

From the back: "Tea and Crosswords: relaxing and refreshing. Oftentimes it's life's simple gifts that are the most pleasurable: the wisp of steam rising from a freshly brewed cup of tea, or the feeling of satisfaction when you've filled in the final square in the puzzle."

Aaah... now if I could only find time to relax and leisurely sit with a cup of tea to work a crossword.

This week I am up early each day for the painter to arrive at 7:15, driving AJ to and from Camp Invention Day Camp, to soccer practice in the evenings and in my spare time, I'm packing up everything in my office in preparation for the furniture to be removed for the wood floors to be laid.

I just keep reminding myself, there will be an end to the house renovation soon, and it will be wonderful!

How fun! Crossword puzzles with a tea theme are the very best. Good luck with the busy week.

Oops! In my haste, I didn't make this post very clear. Unfortunately the puzzles are not tea themed.

That looks like a fun book, and I like the graphics on the cover, too.

I could always use a little "brina boosting"!

Hi Linda, It's nice to find your blog! The crossword book caught my eye. I'd like to get a few of them to use as hostess gifts for the ladies in my tea club. I will be a regular visitor - anyone that is a friend of TEA is a friend of MINE!
