Tea Time

Aren't these sweeties adorable? Did you have tea parties when you were young?
Please join my friend Ruth and others here for Tea Time

I am having...

Ginger peach tea while I wait for Mr. Santos to come home for dinner.  Chicken soup is simmering on the stove.

I am feeling...

Cold.  Thankful.  Contemplative.
On my mind...

Sophia's first Spelling Bee, tomorrow.  I remember my first spelling bee.  I was nine years old.  I lost on the first word.  I don't remember the word, but it started with a CH and I said K.  Oh, how devastated I was.  All my dreams of spelling bee superstardom down the tubes.  I cried all the way home from school. 

I told Sophia, "no matter what, we are getting a treat afterwards, so lets just have fun!"
A quote to share...

You are either a mission field or a missionary.

  1. What a darling picture!! My best wishes to your daughter and her Spelling Bee!! Cathy

  2. May your daughter do well in the Spelling Bee. I hated anything to do with spelling, it caused all sorts of fear and stress - I was (and still am) a poor speller and I think those tests just made it worse.

    Have a lovely weekend. The soup smells nice:)

  3. My children are very good with spelling. I wonder why I had a real hard time with spelling when I was young. I only memorized without understanding how letters were put together :-(

    I've been around your blog, browsing and enjoying the homey feel of it.

    By the way, your children's room is lovely. You don't need a curtain to hide those "neat clutters". It looks lovely as it is.

    I'm glad I can visit you even if I'm here in HK :-)

    Blessings to you Laura.
