tea with my shadow


... or as I usually say, "my little shadow."

my youngest child is usually as close by as any shadow is
in fact, when I was getting ready to photograph my tea today,
(Twinings, "Herbal Revive" or some such "herbalicious, lemony, gingery, yummy" tea)
there she was across the table with her "every single flavor mixed into one big cup" slurpee
much more interesting than tea :)

what is your tea today?
maybe you're having a slurpee too!
if you have a tea post on your blog, just mention it when you leave a comment, and we'll be sure to pop round and say hi!

Gee Kimmie. As hot as our weather has been, it sounds like that slurpee might just be the perfect mid-day drink of choice today. Have a great tea Tuesday. I'm off to shop for groceries before the temps climb above 100. 105 is scheduled for today.

Sounds yummy! I posted my empty hutch!

Gayle said...

Your 'little shadow' is gorgeous and I love the sound of her slurpee ! Enjoy her while she is at home. In the blink of an eye they are off, and you will truly miss these precious times of 'closeness'. Thanks too Kimmie, sincerely, for the wonderful comments you leave for me. xx

My little shadow is 25 now, but he and I used to do so much together, I miss that part about having children who are small. Now I settle for grand dog...xox Corrine
