Sunday was a rainy day on the prairie. We've not seen many rainy days this summer. Beginning in June, moisture has been practically non-existent this summer except, perhaps, for a 10 minute downpour. And that only two or three times.
Sunday (and Saturday) rain came. Not a 10 minute thunderstorm but a nice drizzly afternoon of rain.
Alas, not being able to work in the garden, I decided to take a tray to the Master Bedroom and relax with a book.
|The chaise in the master bedroom.|
The chaise -- bought just for such afternoons. A perfect place to stretch out, have a cup of tea and read a book!
|Two pillows -- one is from the original fabric on the chaise. A reminder of what was. But we like the beige velvet much better!|
The tea tray -- with pot and cup and saucer and a compote of cookies and a book, a favorite -- rainy days call for favorite books -- Elizabeth and Her German Garden.
|Cookies on the floor can sometimes be corgi fodder.|
Alas to read, the tea tray goes on the floor. And if there are any cookies . . . . the corgis believe that food on the floor belongs to corgis!
|A simple tray for one!|
A vintage linen napkin covers the tea tray (mother always said that a tray needed a tray cloth) and it's an Asiatic Pheasant type of day -- a wee tea pot, cup and saucer and a cute compete -- just right for three cookies. Alas, not made by me but from Trader Joe's -- lemon hearts! (It was a busy week at Linderhof and tea cooky baking did not get done!)
It is Tuesday -- and Rainy Days and Sundays is being shared with Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage for Tea Time Tuesday!
