Tea Talk

Ruth's blog has a wonderful meme where one can share a cup of tea and experience quiet times together.

I am having Raspberry Vanilla Caffeine Free Tea.

My mug is the same white with blue and orange flowers.

I'm am feeling a little achy because my arthritis is acting up again.  I also have a slight headache and just took two Tylenol PM's.  The tea is really soothing my aches and pains.  I am wondering why we have such a cool day today in Maryland for May 5th.  I am also releaved that we had a semi-productive day homeschooling today even though my four year old is going through a tough stage right now.  I think he is a perfectionist.  If the smallest thing is not right to him - he lets you know.  We get into some interesting conversations but sometimes it is sooo tiring.  Well, I'm glad he is talking and expressing his feelings.  He had a priviledge taken away from him today because he had a melt down yesterday when we had to leave our co-op.  He knows better even though part of the issue was that he was tired.  He fell asleep on the coach now.  I will have to carry him into bed.  All that talking wore him out too.  I think I will sleep good tonight. 

I'm also hoping that I have enough time tomorrow morning to check my daughter's math.  We are expecting a new novel to come in the mail for her to read.  I wish it would get here.  I may start her on another book my high school daughter read in the past.  I am also excited because my two college sons will be home for the summer soon.  I am so proud of them.

I will leave you with another saying from our 'Attitudes in a Jar.'

"Sharing part of yourself with others is love."


  1. Hello Eileen~ How nice to have your sons home for the summer. These things always warm my heart ~ to see families reunited. I have a little perfectionist I am homeschooling also. She doesn't like to do things that don't come easily. But, she is learning to persevere and be diligent. Thank you for sharing tea talk with us today.

  2. Happy Mother's Day, you busy mom :-) A mom's pride is one pride that is forgivable. I can see you have lovely kids. Your little perfectionist is so adorable. He reminded me of my boy many years ago. Now he's entering university and is writing novels. He was like yours, brilliant in expressing his thoughts and feelings. Maybe that art helped him write good stories now. :-)

    Thank you for sharing tea with us again. Blessings to you and family.
