The calm before the storm


We have had a lot of storms this season. Hurricane Ian will be here by the time this posts. This is what it will look like before the storm hits full force. I'm not sure I will have power, as we are right in Ian's path. No matter where Ian hits, the bigger issue is the west coast of Florida will be flooded with Storm surge. Please keep Florida in your prayers.

Step up to Autumn

 Changing the tablecloth and the centerpiece takes these autumn dishes to a new level.

Dipping into Fall

 The first days of fall usually take a dip into cooler weather. But these fountains don't know the difference.

Hello Fall

Even though it is still pretty hot here in Central Florida, fall is definitely in the air.

Panoramic view

 My daughter has been teaching in South Korea for several months. She often sends me pictures and I thought I would share a couple today.

This is Namsan Tower. It is an observation tower where you can view a panorama of Seoul.

Pretty amazing.

Tea party

Whenever I visit a Tea Room, my friends and I usually enjoy tea served in our own individual tea pots.

I thought I would make my guests feel special by brewing their own special pot of tea.

There is an extra place. Will you join me?

Patriot's Day


In the United States, Sept. 11 has become a day that haunts the nation of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. Since the attacks, the day has been called Patriot Day or National Day of Service and Remembrance, and serves as a day to remember those who lost their lives. The day was passed by Congress on Oct. 25, 2001 and was signed into law by then President George. W. Bush. 

 "Now, we have inscribed a new memory alongside those others. It’s a memory of tragedy and shock, of loss and mourning. But not only of loss and mourning. It’s also a memory of bravery and self-sacrifice, and the love that lays down its life for a friend–even a friend whose name it never knew." -- President George W. Bush

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.  John 15:13

Tea in the Garden

For most of the US summer is coming to an end.  Here in the deep south, we still will enjoy sunshine and balmy days. So, I wanted to spend a little time in the garden.  The shrubs have all been trimmed, waiting for a little cold weather to put them to sleep.

My African Violet has been so full of blooms.  I just had to take it out to the garden and enjoy its beauty.

This Old Royal Bone China sugar and creamer were purchased on one of my trips to Chicago.

My daughter brought the Russian Orenburg Lace Scarf on her first trip to Russia.

Tea in the Garden.  It's always a delight to share a little tea party with you.
