I found a pretty teapot

So yesterday, Marga and I were talking about Machiko Skye’s upcoming second birthday party.  She said, to be cute and girly about it, we should just host a tea party!  And I couldn’t agree with her more.

While walking around S&R, we were already taking mental notes which baked goods we’re planning to serve on that fateful day.  It actually got me soooo excited that I took out our trusty teapot!

Honestly, in all our years living in the south, I do not ever recall ever ever ever EVER taking out this pretty little thing for some tea.  It wasn’t until my father’s heart problems during the past couple of years did we start to explore the benefits of tea.


Isn’t she so pretty.  I bet Marga will go nuts about this teapot once she sees this.  And because I was in the mood, I cleaned up this lady and started brewing tea.

Yes, I convinced everyone to have tea today.  Hahahaha.  But it was a hot afternoon, so I took that into consideration as well.

And then when the tea was done, I poured them perfectly!

WHAT?!  How did that happen!?

Hahahahaha.  A good friend gave me his milk tea recipe in exchange for silence so this is me not talking about it.  I think this would match that tea party, don’t you?

Pretty little teapot. :)

P.S.:  We were all too lazy to retrieve the camera from the car so I took these photos using the phone.  Excuse the grain! :)

Crossing the bridge

I think this should make a really good goal.  Really.  I have not crossed a bridge of this height before and I think this is a good place to start.

This is the Bridge of the Immortals in Huang Shan, China.  I am quite embarrassed to say that for a person my age, I have not traveled enough.  A few friends of mine are planning to go to China next year; I just might tag along with Dylan.  I wonder how it would feel like to walk this bridge.

Maybe we all need a little more adventure in our lives.
