good morning tea


do you see the heart?
sometimes I don't see something until I'm looking through the camera
or looking at it in iPhoto
like this one:


it's a beautiful sunny morning here in the Northwest Washington
it's cold
but it's sunny
I've been re-reading the No.1 Ladies Detective books by Alexander McCall Smith
it warms me up to read about
Botswana
bush tea
good sense
and
warm hearts
... I highly recommend this series for some great winter reading ...

Beautiful sunny morning photos! The heart is very cool. I don't know that I would have noticed had you not pointed it out.
Happy Tea Day!

Morning Kimmie, I love the heart, I am glad that you pointed that out! The book series sounds interesting, will have to look that up. And I love the mug, cheers to you and to your lovely day. Christen

Those hearts are wonderful! And I thank you for pointing them out! I loved the Alexander McCall Smith books and read nearly all of them. I also heard him speak at UCLA many years ago. He was completely delightful -- charming, wry -- he wore a kilt and made us all laugh until we were doubled over!

Yep, I definitely saw the heart. Isn't it fun to see something hidden like that? And I agree that I often don't see things right in front of my eyes until I see them downloaded onto my computer screen.

Kimmie, your sunny photos brightened my day and the rocking (OK, ROLLING) horse would go well with my nearly 450 other rocking horses. Just think, your little guy would never be lonely (grin).

I'm so glad you are not under blizzard warnings. It makes me feel better to know you are safe. Have a glorious Tea Tuesday, and thanks as always for hosting this fun day.

Love the heart and I saw it right away! That's so fun! We are staying warm here in south Texas, although we did get snow in 2004 and they say snow is possible again Thursday. Brrrr! Stay warm. Happy tea day.

I did notice the heart/handle right away....just perfect

I watched Ladies Det on TV last year and was disappointed when the series was not continued

the accents and characters were so endearing...one day I will figure out how to make more time for reading...it is something I miss

thank you for another lovely and sweet T Kimmie!

I see it! Enjoy your tea. The book series sounds like fun. I'll look them up.

Odd Chick said...

This photograph at the top is blue-ribbon awesome!!! Kimmie- i wish I had you for a day with my own new camera to follow around while you took pictures and I could pick your brain!
Regarding our art journal that has begun its travels, would you consider sending your own book to each person and us all round-robin our own books and then each person can decide what to do with them? Several have agreed already that they like this idea. It would require about 7 little art pieces on your part. I'm checking with everyone else on the list. You would send your book out with your art first and then others would send it back to you until it's full. Does that sound good to you?

I am a tea drinker and the follower of you and several of your participants....I'm thinking about joining in, but haven't. Enjoy both, tea drinking and reading the blogs but, what I really have enjoyed is The Ladies No. 1 Detective Agency series. Did you see the few HBO movies that they produced? It was short, only four or five programs but wonderful. A new book is coming out the end of March, I can hardly wait. Tea and a good book, PERFECT!
