Tea on Tuesday: oatmeal and applesauce

tea on tuesdayGood day to you all, I hope that Tea on Tuesday finds you well, happy, and ready for the day! I am saying this as I have been awake since 2:00 am, fighting to stay in bed and trying to get back to sleep. Alas this did not happen, and I finally got up at 4:00 and started the day….

Tea today is with the Earl, very strong as you can imagine I am fading a bit about now…

I thought some oatmeal would pick me up. So I used a recipe of Kimmie’s where she suggested to put applesauce in the bowl and cook it. WELL…..hmmmm

To my embarrasment I made a grand mess in the microwave because I forgot that the oatmeal expanded. I now have a perfectly wonderful smelling glue-paste in the microwave, that I am sure will take some time to remove…..

So I decided to take some photos, and put my tea on the mantle which is decorated for the season.

Please join Kimmie and the rest of the tea group for a cup of words, quotes, lovely pictures, tea related info and great friends….

I am now going to go clean up my mess, and perhaps take a walk…. or snuggle with Butch and read my book…

Enjoy, Christen

PS: Kimmie wrote that it was apple juice, not apple sauce, UH DUH!!!! Must try that instead!

Tea on Tuesday, Harvest

harvest timeTea today is actually coffee, just sipping away, happy as a camper in still in my jammies! Actually I don’t think that I would be happy camping as it was usually cold, and there was always a rock under my back.

Anyways, the weather is cool and rainy and I am starting to decorate for fall. Last year I got on a “rusty gadget” theme and I am ready to start displaying my treasures. I found all of these old kitchen gadgets, here are two different graters; then there is my fake antique lantern, and this fun little chair made from real horseshoes!

My Autumn Harvest class is starting today at Joggles, and today it is all about the Pumpkins, next week the Cluckleheads (seen resting in the chair).

Hope that all is well with you, and please join Kimmie and the rest of the tea time group for a cuppa!

Enjoy, Christen
