Steeped a stout mug this morning to celebrate
a) rain—well, sprinkles but it’s a start
b) the sudden and thoughtful appearance of some half-and-half in the fridge; we don’t keep it in hot weather
c) the sudden and thoughtful appearance of an unexpected writing assignment (thanks, God!)
d) oh, and while I’m celebrating, it’s Barton County Fair week, should any of you care to swing by Lamar, Missouri. Art show, agricultural tent (doesn’t smell like tea!) and the parade’s at 2.
Because of the big event, Mom’s hair place closed for the week and I’m on my way to help with an octogenarian hairstyling party.

I don’t do curlers! My “client” (victim?) on the other hand, strongly believes it’s the only way to do hair. We compromised. Blow dryer on the back, those horrible, torturous blue plastic clamp curlers on the front. :)

Bio

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
