Happy Tea Tuesday!

I am so desparate for photos, that I am digging through my daughter's folders. Yep, I am still working off one of the kids' computers. WHY haven't I moved mine over yet?! Because I have been concentrating on setting up the kitchen and now am unpacking boxes into the butler's pantry. Really, I promise to have decent visuals next week. Scout's honor. Cross my heart.

In the mean time, here's our recently departed Scooter (basset hound) and our darling Lucy at our old house. Funny thing is, as big as Lucy is, she is more "to scale" in this larger house we are in. She definitely has more room to sprawl!

My cough is improving (for those keeping tabs), but now my oldest is home "sick" with sinus drainage. Since this is Tuesday, I must report that I am just about to brew my second pot of black tea (my comfort) and my daughter has just finshed a huge mug of Black Cherry Berry (Celestial Seasonings) with honey. Wish I could cozy up on the couch with her and watch TV, but I have boxes and boxes waiting for me. And when those are emptied, I have to go to our old house and refill them.

I promise, promise, promise, photos soon!

Did you know that 'getter' is a cross between better and good, lol

My 11 year old missed school all of last week with a sinus infection..has them often. I've started her on tea with honey too! I'll need to pick up more flavors for her. Usually I give her decaf earl grey or green tea. Even tried giving some to my 5 year old with a cold. Isn't camomile supposed to be healing? Can't wait to see the house pictures. Are your kids happy about the move too?

Glad to hear you are better. I had a cough for about 2 weeks and it is still hanging on a bit. Seems everyone is moving these days. I guess that was spring does. Happy tea day.

I had a wire haired fox terrier named Scooter who lived to be 15. Good luck with the packing and unpacking. Wishing you and your family health and happines. Tammyr

It was good to see Scooter. And Lucy will be so thrilled with her new digs, I'm sure. (let's hope she doesn't start digging tho...) aaaaggghhh! Keep the tea coming!

Kimmie said...

I think you should have gotten a butler with that pantry :)
I'm glad you're feeling better, but sorry that it's making the rounds too .... It's hard when the kids get sick!

Looking forward to seeing pics when the dust settles!

Cheers! Kimmie

sounds like your cough may be allergy related?

we felt lucky to miss a bit of the pollen here in VA...came home to green and lush everything!

Good luck with the packing/unpacking. It is always a big job to move.
