"You see, rainy days are my favorite tea weather. The moment the kettle pipes on the stove, a sense of well-being overtakes me, a delicious feeling of comfort and calm." Tea with Victoria Rose by Susan Wheeler and Paul Kortepeter
My daughter, Victoria-Rose, is very much like the rabbit in the book quoted above. She absolutely adores rainy weather...as long as she doesn't have to go out in it. She agrees with the rabbit (also named Victoria Rose) that "the feeling of being snug indoors is not possible without raw weather outdoors. It's the contrast of warmth and chill, of light and dark, that makes rainy days extraordinary." When you look at a rainy day in this light, you can really enjoy it!
We have been having LOTS of rainy weather here in 'sunny' Florida lately! It has rained so much this week that the garden is soggy and new rain just sits in puddles in the grass for hours before it can be absorbed. Not that I am complaining. Not at all. It gives me an excuse to sit and sip a cup of tea and catch up on reading and other blogger's posts. It also allows me uninterrupted time in my little sewing studio.
|Here I am all ready to enjoy my tea. This is my 'tea station' on the kitchen counter. The canisters hold different teas. The teapot is Gracie Bone China, purchased at Home Goods several years ago.|
|Tea today is Teavana's Sakura Allure, steeped in my trusty infuser for exactly two minutes.|
I hope that you get to enjoy a cup of tea today with someone special...yourself!
