Tea Talk--"Power Relaxing"

It's so nice to relax over a cup of tea, and share my thoughts with you!  To join this time with us, please click on the button above to visit Ruth and to learn how to participate!

I'm standard Irish breakfast tea.  It's a strong tea, but caffeine doesn't really bother me and I like the taste of a bold tea in the morning.  I usually drink mine with a little honey and cream.

A photo tea mug!  I'm so happy to be able to show you a photo of my mug.  This is my everyday mug, discovered at a garage sale this summer for 50 cents.  (I love garage sales.)  My kitchen is more navy than this mug's bright cobalt, but blue is blue.  I love its rounded shape, and the flower and butterfly designs.  Notice my pretty little teakettle?  That's also a garage-sale item, which a lady told me once belonged to her grandmother.  The silver kettle looks so pretty sitting on my stove, against a silver and white tin backsplash in the background.

I'm feeling...relieved that this week is almost over.  It has been very hectic, with Jacob almost missing a college class (twice), me making unneeded and unnecessary trips, and both Jacob and Danny waiting until the last minute to begin work on an "essay summary" assignment for their college class.  This little Tea Talk break today is my "power relaxing" time, as I've not had a moment to breathe all week.

On my mind is...several tasks that need to be done by this weekend!  Wrapping a wedding gift and making a card--praise the Lord I finished modifying my dress last night--and more organizing of homeschool science supplies.

Scripture to leave you with...we finished my favorite book--Ephesians--and have just started reading through Philippians.  I pray these verses for you all--and for me--today.

And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more
in real knowledge and all discernment,
so that you may approve the things that are excellent,
in order to be sincere and blameless until the day of Christ;
having been filled with the fruit of righteousness
which comes through Jesus Christ,
to the glory and praise of God.
Philippians 1:9-11 nasb

Back to life,

  1. Hi Christine,

    Greetings from Manila where I'm in 2-hour lay over. It's 5:45AM here. I enjoyed your Tea Talk post especially your photo. Loved your mug and kettle!
    Thank you for sharing that beautiful verse.


  2. Good morning! :) I'm glad you could pop in for a visit! Enjoy your travels, and your family!!


  3. Sooooo good to see you posting PHOTOS again!!! I love this one, and yes, the silver tea pot DOES look lovely in your kitchen :-)

    Nothing like sending kids off to college to give us a "break" from the hustle and bustle of the homeschooling life, hmmmmm?

    Love you,

  4. It's "crazy me" here! I have a couple photos for you, too, just haven't uploaded 'em yet (think Nathan's day).

    Right--I'm calmer now. Tuesday-Thursday usually is the crazy time. The prof really liked Danny's essay, too!
