~Tea Talk~

No matter how long the winter, spring is sure to follow. 

I'm having...Island Mango Peach White Tea from Lipton.  It's very flavorful.

My one I got at Cracker Barrel a few weeks ago. Had breakfast with a friend and we got mugs to savor our tea at home and remind us that friendship is a real treasure.

I'm feeling...So very grateful.  The cabinets are in and the counter top will be measured and in another week or two it will be in place.  The kitchen is coming together and my how wonderful it is.  I am grateful to all who helped with this process from beginning to the middle here...not quite the end.  But the kids and Ron and the contractors from Lowe's have been just grand.

On my the weekend retreat at St. Meinrad Archabbey.  It's that time of year again when women from the church gather there for two days of prayer, instruction and community.  It's how I get ready for spring.  

Sam's personal inspection of the new cabinets. 

  Wishing all a wonderful Thursday!!


Now won't you join me and visit Ruth at Celebrate Friendship is hosting Tea Talk at her house?  Share a cup of tea or a cool refreshing drink with us.


  1. I love your proverb! I'm impatiently awaiting spring here in Chicagoland. :)

    Your mug is really nice; what a great way to treasure a friendship. I can't wait to see your finished kitchen in photos. I still love my new kitchen (we remodeled almost three years ago). Cabinet space is wonderful!

    Blessings to you this Thursday,

  2. Island Mango...I am there! Can't wait to see your kitchen photos when the work is all done! I'm glad your kitty came to Tea Talk...perhaps he could join Sunny with us each week??!
