Share Your Cup #203
I chose to re-purpose an item already in my house. I made these glass markers years ago and sold many of them. They were designed to sit on the stem of a glass and each guest would have their own color. and therefore able to remember which glass was theirs.
These were still in my stash so I decided to add one to the handle of the tea pot each time I made tea. They are pretty and useful. Works for me.
Does anyone else have the problem of remembering the number of time tea leaves have been steeped? How do you handle it? Leave me a comment.
1. What you resist persists and grows stronger.
2. You can only be exactly as you are in the moment.
3. Anything you allow to be exactly as it is completes itself.
The idea for number 3 is: If you are facing something difficult face it head on and let it be. It will run it's course and disappear. Many times we avoid, procrastinate, deflect issues based on our fears which just make them last longer.
A good friend took me out for supper, a trip to an antique mall and DQ for dessert on my actual birthday.
I received several phone calls and emails from family.
I was out for steak dinner last night thanks to a good friend.
Another birthday supper is planned with a friend in about 10 days.
I am truly blessed to have such great friends and family.
Of course, I always share my birthday with Father's Day!
Steeped Tea Morning Glory Dessert Cups have discolored so I don't think I will be baking cupcakes in these. I want to keep them pretty. I think I will use them for jellied or frozen desserts. I can see pudding topped with fresh fruit in them.
I was able to purge a couple of old Pyrex pieces put this one in their place in the cupboard. One in one out is a good rule to live by. One in two out is even better.
I'm serving lunch on Friday so I think I will make a rhubarb crisp for dessert.
