Sippin' on Hot Tea...
Sippin' on hot tea and remembering...
I bought the this tea on one of our excursions in Virginia. I love the beautiful silk pyramids with the perfect little leaves. I love the way it smells... and tastes... You know they say smell is one of the strongest associations for memory. Amanda and I enjoyed a few quiet cups during nap time for the Little Men. So having it at home reminds me...
It is not uncommon for the Little Men & Co. to give their Noni other "reminders"... sometimes in the form of nasty colds... Let's just say that I'm being reminded and that the tea is very soothing. It would be a bit MORE enjoyable if my sense of smell were up to par. ;)
As I brought out this cup, I also enjoyed memories of receiving it as a child... I was about ten years old and one of Mom and Dad's friends, Mrs. Emily Redmond, gave each of the five children a beautiful cup and saucer. I wonder if my siblings still have theirs. I am especially happy to still have mine to enjoy this tea... and memories.
I'm trying to squeeze in some knitting time on my Morticia KAL. I think I'm going to love it!
