Thought for the day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 17th day of October, 2015.

The sun is coming up and to the south from my office view the sky is almost a variegated peach.

So very soft and pretty.

I just am seeing now that the neighbour building the garage behind me now has his garage door and window in place.

WOW, it is almost done.

The house is so quiet this morning without me Alvin.

I sure miss the little guy.

Last night after work my daughter stopped by to pick him up.

As she was by herself (so her pups had someone at home) we had supper together.

Nothing like a grilled two kind of cheese sandwich and a hearty lentil soup with added peas.

We had a chat and caught up.

After supper the three of us went for a walk.

Once the house was clear I went to work with the exception of my neighbour stopping by to pick up another catalogue I spent until 12:30 last night preparing the house for the Open House today.

Laundry done, floors washed, bathrooms cleaned, table set up with teas, tea cups and such, and some of our jewellery (as one of my friends wants to pick up some earrings), balloons blown up.

There were so many little odds and ends but they are all done.

I always like to just get up and have breakfast and have a shower and be ready.

There will be a trip outside to tie some balloons to the tree and to the porch (already have some up inside the house).

Business cards out …..

Samples ….. catalogues ….. order forms. ┬áCHECK.

DONE.

Well wish me luck …. it will be a great day between the Steeped Tea Open House and going out with my friends this evening.

Alvin will be having fun with his sister and family (there will be children as my son-in-law’s niece and nephew are also coming for a sleepover).

So on this great Saturday I wish you time with family and friends, time to work on your TO DO LIST items, time to relax and to have fun.

Happy Saturday.

Special Hello to: all my fellow tea drinkers ……

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 13th day of September, 2015.

It is a great morning here in Edmonton.

The skies were overcast but are now clearing as the morning progresses.

Today is an exciting day for me as this afternoon I will hold my very first tea party as an consultant for Steeped Tea.

My training party was in August and I have my leader, “C” with me so she did all of the work so today it is all me.

I have read over the training information.

I have read all about all the different kinds of teas.

The guest catalogues/order forms and pens are ready to go.

I have placed samples out and some of the other products that we sell.

My tea pots are ready to be used.

The teas have been chosen by the Hostess.

I have placed on the table some tea plates, tea cups and saucers and glasses.

In case you have not guessed I will “host” the party as far as the venue and dishes go and the hostess will bring over a treat for the guests. ┬áNice and breezy easy for the hostess.

The house is pretty much clean.

Just the last minute sweep/vacuum the floor …. quick dust ….

I am excited and perhaps a little bit nervous.

There is so much information and I just want to do a great job.

Well I am going to enjoy my cup of coffee and get ready.

I am just going to wear a skirt and top so I will be comfortable getting ready now.

The only component I am a bit concerned about is Mr. Alvin ….

He knows a couple of the people so he will definitely be excited.

I did have a chat with him because I know that he will be wanting to visit and see everyone.

Hopefully he will bring it down a notch …. just friendly not FRIENDLY.

Oh, my boy.

Well I had better go.

I have a couple of things to do of course even though there are almost four hours until start time.

Wish me luck.

I know it will be a great tea parTEA.

Have a great Sunday everyone.

I will let you know how it goes.

Special Hello to: my Daughter who helps her Momma so much ….. thank you for the help with my Steeped Tea website.

Always, Carol and Alvin
