the healing properties of tea
I love it when Jennifer and Olive come to visit. Since they moved back to California in April, much to the family's sadness, Jennifer and Olive have been able to get back up about once a month to ease our pain.
Not only do I love that Jennifer does the dishes when she's home (and a myriad of other chores we all hate but now have to do in her absence), but I love that after dinner, no matter the evening, almost all in attendance enjoy a cup of tea. I like to wander to Jean's china cabinet and chose a tea-cup from her lovely and eclectic collection. I daresay it's one of those small, profound pleasures that I live for.
Add one (or five) of Jean's pumpkin cookies, and you have one blissed out madame.
Last night, Miss Olive joined in the festivites.
What joy was mine,
