And I raise my cup to you this morning dearest friend as I stay home today to recover from laryngitis! I had the most magical time with Suzanne on Sunday and tea is a calming elixir indeed, but FRIENDSHIP helps us to bear those circumstances that do happen, and for that, I am grateful. Bisous to you my dear, dear amie, Anita

Aaaaah! A cup! And what a beautiful one. Just took pictures of a cup myself too today to be posting about soon ... soooo weird!!!!
I'm afraid there won't be a wise saying in my post though... No idea where those wisdoms on all of those blogs keep coming from... but I'm always amazed by them and about the truth in them!
Bye,
Marian

Ohh Koralee! As my voice is ZERO, NADA, NUL, ZILCH, this morning I HAVE TO GO IN because we are going on a field trip and my colleague whose class is going with us has a sub for the day so I just can't let loose all those kids on two poor unsuspecting subs! But I am making full use of our French trainee; he is going to have to be the voice for me. THEN TOMORROW IS CONFERENCES! HA! I cannot even issue out a noise from my throat!!! I did however, take lots of tea and I slept more than ever! OH dearest one, thank you for your well wishes and kindness; two healing balms for SURE!!!! I will let you know how conferences go....quite comical I would imagine!

GROSSES BISES, Anita

Becky said...

pollydove said...

A great reminder to be sure! And I love this little teacup and saucer. I only have one (shocking for a collector like you, I know) that was my great grandmother's and I have tried to photograph it, but it just doesn't ever look quite right, sigh ...

Martha said...

Libbie said...

I had THE BEST tea today & i thinj the only thing that could have made it better is if I drank it out aof a fancy dancy cup like that!

I do wonder often what God has protected us from...I guess every burden I haven't had to bear huh? :)

Hope you enjoying a lazy afternoon!
