To Tea or Not to Tea....

I was just reading the Yarn Harlot's blog today. She was talking about having tea time in the afternoons - about how many people she knows couldn't imagine NOT having tea time in the afternoon. I am one of the people that can imagine not having it! I'm not a tea drinker - it just isn't my - well, my "cup of tea"... I do, however, have my version of an afternoon "after school" snack - but mine is "after work", being as how I'm a grown up now after all (well, that is what people tell me I'm supposed to be now)! LOL! I either do cookies and milk - or coffee and a cookie - or today, I'm having chocolate covered pretzels and milk - and later will get a cup of coffee... Sometimes I will grab a few miniature candy bars with some milk. My afternoon snack always seems to involve milk. I love milk! Even when it is cold out, my first thought turns to a big glass of milk and a sugary snack....

So, do you do tea - or not....

Hide and seek

Just being a kid - being able to go out and about without worry .....

My source for knitted pumpkins

Someone emailed me and asked me where I got the pattern for my knitted pumpkins. In case anyone else is interested, I got it off of Go to the directory and click on Food and then the pattern is called "Charming Pumpkins".

Little Changes.....

I was cleaning my powder room last night and trying to decide what to do with all my Santas and Snowmen on the little display shelf in there. I was a bit weary of them - they've been there for a long long time. Then I got the brilliant idea (this was around 1 in the morning) to rearrange them! Such a simple idea - so simple I couldn't figure out why I couldn't have thought of it a long time ago - duh! So I did just that and it made me feel much better about them. I almost think of my collections as being "real" having feelings. To prove this, I was going to put the biggest snowman away in a drawer for awhile, but didn't want to hurt his feelings, so I put him upstairs in my other bathroom - LOL!
