Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 23rd day of May, 2016.

Happy Victoria Day!

I am using this special birthday day to hold a “Steeped Tea Tasting ParTEA.”

What could be more fun on a semi-dreary sunless raining day than sitting around with good people drinking tea?

I think we shall have fun.

Alvin will be excited for all of the company.

Sometimes he gets a little carried away.

Perhaps today he will be more calm upon their arrivals.

We will have some hot teas, some fruit teas with ginger ale and perhaps an iced tea.

Our fruit teas added with ginger ale make a delightful summer drink.

I have to find a recipe for the iced tea.

For treats:

Sweet dip with our Coconut Lime mix (add to cream cheese and condensed milk and fresh lime zest and juice)

having with strawberries, pineapple and nectarines.

Savoury dip with our Guacamole mix  (add to fresh avocados and fresh lime juice)

having with home baked tortilla chips.


It has been a quiet weekend with all of the rain.

I hope that people are ready to get outside and that everyone invited comes today for a taste of tea.

I wish that all of you lived closer and could come for a visit as well.

But before I hop into a nice hot bath filled with citrus epsom salts- I am sipping on a hot mug of coffee.

I do love both tea and coffee.

Coffee is my morning drink and tea is my evening drink and sometimes in the afternoons.

Well wish me luck on this Monday adventure of tea tasting and chatting with new and old friends.

I wish you all a very happy Monday.

May the sun shine through even the darkest clouds and brighten your day.

Special Hello to: Fellow tea drinkers.

Always, Carol and Alvin
