Tea today is with the Earl, Gray that is, he served up a nice little bit of breakfast blend that I am just finishing up with my apple and almonds.
We have had a busy week, with work and family. My husband presided over a renewal of vows for two of his ex-students on Thursday. The ceremony was held overlooking San Diego bay and it was beautiful. The couple had been married in New York last February, but wished to have a ceremony for their families that lived here in So Cal. It was a very emotional day for my husband, as he wrote the entire ceremony, being a teacher and council to both the bride and groom. After seeing the entire group of respective parents and family members it was not a surprise to me why they have chosen him for that position.
It left us both emotionally depleted though, so we just hung around the house and went for a walk and did a bit of yard cleaning.
We spent most of the summer under a layer of clouds, this was a bit depressing both for the seeds that we planted and our spirits. I have been getting one or two flowers per plant, but it has been fun to watch what may come out of those packets!
Unfortunately the clouds that had kept the temperatures down did not prepare us for the smoldering 90 degree weather that we are having on the coast and over 105 inland where my husband and daughter will be today. I am off for my walk so I can get back home before it is too hot and I don’t pass out! I now carry this handy little pepper spray and whistle, which gives me the confidence that I lost after my scare in the earlier part of the summer.
Happy tea to all, and please take a moment to join Kimmie and the rest of the gang!
