tuesdays for tea : 09.05.12

the daily green dot comAhhh. Tuesday. Somehow it’s just my day to breathe over a cup ‘o tea.

Over the weekend I went with my Mom + Nana to a farmer’s market. There wasn’t much there, but inside another building was a tea shoppe, and I found a lovely Cream Earl Gray. Add a splash of vanilla syrup, and YUM. Sunday I was back on iced coffees since it was so warm and I have a fab new insulated cup from Starbucks ;-).

Mikey is meowing at my feet for his breaky. As it turned out, there is a lady in town who’s life is spent helping sick cats find homes. Our sick cat had a home, so she offered to cover the surgeries Mikey needed to get back in tip top shape. Amazing – we are still in shock, after having made the call to have him put down because we just didn’t have the $2,000 to help a sick, older cat that we’d only had 5 days. Amazing! He seems very happy, is eating, and avoiding Boo…

Mother’s Day was lovely, and in fact took up an entire weekend. We just know how to party around here! I got to spend quality time with each of my kids individually, drink wine ’til all hours with a friend I’d lost touch with, see my Mom + Nana, go for brunch and on Sunday I got to do something I’ve only been dreaming of – sleep 12 hours. Bliss!

My garden is growing! On the weekend we also had our neighbours over for dinner/wine/marshmellow roasting. We chat all the time, and had been talking about getting together since we’d moved in 6 years ago, so it was nice to finally do it. Anywhoo, they told us that this old, dingy area below our sunroom used to be used as a hot house for tomatoes/etc! OHMYGOSH! I hadn’t even thought of it. So, I made Hubby clean out all his tools, and hopefully he’ll re-install some shelving and I’ll get right on a bunch more of them ter-mat-ers.

Well, work has been keeping me busy these days, taking my evenings away from too much blogging, but I do miss writing and most of all looking up old and new blogs to peruse! I’ll get back at’cha all soon.

Peace out,
