Rain on the prairie. Nonexistent this summer. And so we embraced the remnants of Isaac as he made his way north.
Two glorious days of rain. A soaky rain. Not a 2 inch in 5 minute type of rain but a gentle rain for most of the day!
We went to the Farmer's Market in the rain Saturday morning. How could we not? The rest of the day was spent doing what I call "puttering" -- little odds and ends that never seem to get done plus a nap! (Rainy days are really nap days!)
But every afternoon at half past three, we always stop . . . for a cup of tea.
|A quiet tea for me|
Husband Jim was off on an errand and so I took tea in the breakfast room. And my favorite thing to do when I take tea alone is to read while I sip and munch.
|There's always a pile of books on a breakfast room chair for I love to read if I'm alone for lunch or tea.|
A new book. Perfect English. I adore the English style of decorating and I'm not sure you can really replicate that look. For it's often things that are loved for ages and things collected not only over time but inherited as well. But I do adore books about English decor and it was nice to add this one to my collection.
And the tea?
|I think all blue and white go well together!|
Earl Grey in the afternoon. In the wee Johnson Brothers Indies pot with a matching cup and saucer and wee creamer. The nosh? Pumpkin bread from the Farmer's Market on a Spode Blue Italian plate. I love mixing and matching my blue and white and don't give a thought to grabbing whatever piece I need from whatever pattern to set my table. Especially for me!
|I could almost hear the plants say "aah"!|
I had a corgi on each side. They're shameful beggars! And yes, they did get a snack. Who can say no to a corgi face?
It's Tuesday and I'm joining Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage for Tea Time Tuesday.
Alas, Isaac moved on and Sunday was clear and sunny. Monday was hot once again. Fall will be most welcomed!
