health(ier) tea

I've been for a walk today already

and plan to go on another walk after tea

- boxing day -
does that come from the idea of boxing up treats and getting them out of the house?

and this is just the candy

never mind the
cinnamon rolls
egg nog

uff da


happy tea on tuesday
a very healthy thing to do 


I've been off the grid all weekend and hope to get around to everyone

Isn't that the truth--the junk everywhere? I feel like I need to do a cleanse!

I need to take time out from the sugary foods but the grandchildren are coming in tomorrow so I will have cookies with my tea! Blessings! Mary Helen

Hope you had a wonder-full holiday!

I believe boxing day comes from Victorian times when large rich families had servants. The rich would box up christmas gifts they didnt like or want and give them to the servants. it might have been a servant holiday too or am i making that part up?

Yes, lots of sweets but am hoping they will put on a few pounds as I am too thin. LOL.

Maybe a cup of caffeine tea today is in order.

We celebrate Boxing Day in Canada (where I grew up) and Suki is right about it being a servants holiday and gift time for them but the wealthy also sent around boxes of remuneration to their merchants, the grocer, milliner, dressmaker etc. Let's face it can there ever be enough gift-giving, hmmm?
Hope you had a wonderful Christmas at your house and I wish you a very Happy New Year!

Happy Tuesday, Kimmie! I didn't do much baking this year and we already finished up the toffee that my girlfriend gave us. A friend is having her cookie festival next week. Your walk(s) sound great. Since spraining my ankle, I haven't actually taken a walk for pleasure or the health benefits. Weather has been mild lately, I really should get out there and try to pound the pavement. Have a great rest of the week. Tammy

I recognize "uff da"! Are you from Minnesota?

Ha! I boxed up some treats today to take to my back door neighbors, who I affectionately call, "7 Kids and Counting" They never turn down food! Didn't know I was keeping up a tradition (Boxing Day)- I thought I was just being practical. heehee

Love your photo with the candy wrappers prominent. Inspiring collection really too nice to EAT!

Here's to will power in the New Year! Cheers!
