tea and a long list





Today, my morning tea is Tazo Ginger Green tea.
I have it perched on a window ledge.
You can see the delphiniums in the background getting ready to explode with color:


The flowers don't have any trouble putting off what they need to do,
they're in a big hurry to get it done and get it done fast.
Only one thing on their list: BLOOM!
But the girls and I only want to curl up with good books.
Here they are reading Harry Potter #2, Harry Potter #4 and Percy Jackson #5.


The things on my list:
... in addition to the usual:
cook, maid, taxi driver, fashion consultant, therapist, diplomat, tutor, personal shopper, etc.


But all of that will have to wait ..... for now, I'll sip my tea and finally read My Father's Dragon upon the insistence of my 8 yr old.

I hope your day is a good one - no matter what is on your list!!!

Dear Kimmie- I hope that you get to all of the things on your list, and that the many hats that you wear compliment your day as much as you do ours! Happy "T", hugs Christen

What a WONDERFUL photo of your girls--I love it--it just looks so inviting. And I love your to-do list--I've yet to try the peeled paint look, but I will, because I think it is the coolest technique.

I'm in awe of your list. I have tried Gaby's peeling paint technique and never gotten the stunning results she gets. I think it takes a bit of practice to know just how much vaseline to put on and where.

Love your cup. Have an awesome Tea Tuesday.

The picture of your girls is priceless! Nothing beats curling up with a good read - no matter what your age. I'm so glad you posted your list - reading through it and clicking on each project made me oooh and ahhhh, as I remembered that beautiful wedding gift and your lighthouse piece. I'm enjoying a cup of English Breakfast as I'm wishing you a fabulous day! Hugs, Terri xoxo

I want to try the peeling paint technique also!! Love the photo of the girls lost in their separate worlds......

Of all your hats, I would think diplomat is the toughest of them all!!!Diplomacy can be a wobbly bridge in momhood and life!!!
