Recent Photos

This is a great cup of green tea.  It does not look green but I read in a book recently that the color depends on when it is picked in the year.

This is Jasmine Dragon Pearls green tea which is hand rolled and on the pricey side.  It was a gift from a friend.

I brewed the tea for my photo shoot for my 2019 Tea Pot Calendar which will come out later this year.

This is the book on my night stand this week.  Of course, Maeve is one of my favorite authors and this book covers several incidents that I am familiar with from other books.  I don't know how she kept all the stories and characters straight.

In this book, the story is told from Clara's point of view which is  new character for me.

I am enjoying it and will be done to swap it out at Welcome to my Kitchen next week.

My bible study material is ready to go.  It is on the Fruit of the Spirit and starts next Wednesday which is Feb 14 Valentine's Day.

I am looking forward to having at least 5 ladies attending as we explore how God works in our lives to grow Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Gentleness, Faithfulness, Goodness, and Self Control.

Are any of you following "This is Us" TV series?  I have watched it from the beginning and on a special Super Bowl episode we find out how Jack died.  He has been dead since the first episode but with flash backs I have come to really love this character.  He is such a good person with the best heart.   There will be a couple more episodes until it goes in hiatus till the fall.  I have convinced several friends to watching it.  I understand the first season is now on Netflicks.

Well sewing projects don't always work out the way you plan them on paper.  I did a sample of the pattern I posted here but it did not go as planned so I made some adjustments.

I now have made several sets of these and I am happy with them.  The fleece is tricky to get consistent stitching in the zigzag but I can live with it.

I am sharing with

  1. I am always revamping sewing projects and changing things and also breaking needles and ripping out thread! Ha! I enjoyed your post and thank you so much for sharing.

  2. I love the author M. Binchy too and I haven't read this book. I'll look for it at my library. I hear a lot of good reports on green tea but I've never really had a taste for it. I should probably try again! Enjoy your weekend!

  3. I've not read Maeve Binchy in ages. That tea looks delish and you sure seem to be busy with loads of projects! Three cheers!

  4. I love Jasmine green tea and got a free cup of the Jasmine Dragon Pearl at David's Tea for my birthday. It's hard to believe that you're working on the 2019 calendars now. Time flies!

  5. Your life is so full and beautiful -- thanks for sharing! I will have to check out This is Us on Netflix...that is pretty much the only way we watch TV these days ... I am too spoiled by now to watch with commercials.

  6. I would like to drink green tea, but I'm yet to find one I like. Perhaps I need to buy a more pricey one. My Mum loved Maeve Binchy's books. Have a lovely week and thank you for stopping by my blog last week.


Thanks for visiting. I love to read your comments.
