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

Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 19th day of February, 2014.

It is snowy here in Edmonton…… it decided to snow overnight.

Oh well it is still winter after all …..

I was just thinking about “writing” and all of the different formats we have used over the centuries.

With sticks in the dirt, with rocks on walls, on tablets, using all sorts of tools to carve onto hard surfaces, quills in ink, pencils and ball point pens, keyboards with computers.

Or perhaps using a dye of some sort on the walls of a cave.

So many ways to communicate other than speaking.

Can you imagine being around when we using a tool of some sort to carve onto rock walls etc?

How about the old fashioned quills in ink?

I think they were “romantic.”

No matter what method we have or are using, it is all about communicating.

We want to make certain that we are always heard.

We want to make certain that we are remembered.

Do you communicate well?

Do you write down your thoughts and dreams?

I hope that you  have a great Wednesday.

Time for me to go to work.

Thank you for reading.

Special Hello to: my fellow bloggers ….. you are heard.

Always, Carol and Alvin
