Tea time at Linderhof
is every afternoon at half past three
A time to stop what we're doing, put the kettle on
and brew a pot of tea.
Generally, my Emile Henry is my every day teapot
And I use that (or one of the wee blue and white ones)
for afternoon tea
But the other day, I had a special tea treat and so . . .
|The breakfast room in the afternoon is the "Tea Room"|
I used one of my blue and white pots
along with a Spode blue and white cup and saucer and tea plate.
|I've had a love affair with mysteries since I read my first Agatha Christie|
And when it's just me I tend to read while I take afternoon tea
Mysteries, cozy mysteries
(for I don't like blood and gore -- just a good quiet body in the library found by the heroine much to her dismay!)
|A special bookmark made for me by a special friend.|
Tea treats are not ALWAYS made by me. Sometimes I buy them.
The day before I was in the city and stopped by a bakery,
And I bought a great coconut macaroon.
I'm a fool for coconut macaroons which is why I rarely make them.
This has to be one of the best I've had.
Dolly is always at my feet for tea.
Hoping for a handout.
I'm not as generous as Husband Jim.
She's had kibble and doesn't really need a sweet treat.
A half hour or so, the teapot is empty, there are only crumbs on the plate
And it's time to finish my afternoon chores.
It's Tuesday --
