The Joy in Tea Talk

I'm having...Iced peach tea.  IT's gonna be another scorcher today...

My teacup... a simple glass full of ice.

I'm feeling... ready to go, I guess.  Only two more days until the LONG WEEKEND!

On my mind...a long weekend in which I have a long list of things I'd like to get done in the yard and to the house.  And there are fond memories of the weeks past that have caused this need to WORK this weekend.

Lovely Old House in downtown St. Charles, MO
And it's for sale!

Please join Ruth at Tea Talk today.


Today I also join Meri for Share the Joy Thursday.   For I believe we need to find it in my life every day no matter the realities in which we live.  God is Good in so many ways even in times of trial.

Joy is the finished afghan!  And why it took me so long to finish is beyond me!

Thanks be to God!!!



  1. Oh isn't that house just lovely!!! Enjoy the day and your iced tea!!

  2. i cannot help but see the old photograph on your bookshelf, a bride of long ago. beautiful...and touching. as are you dear cathy. here's to the joy of simply things regardless of the trials of life.

  3. Finally finishing an afghan is cause for joy and celebration in my book. Can I join you for some tea?

  4. We are also looking forward to a long weekend. Praise God.

  5. I just love old houses; that one seems really neat. I also have tons of stuff to get done this weekend, and I'm running out of unplanned time! Here's to both of us having productive weekends. :)

  10. Hi Cathy,

    Hope you're well.
