Me Time Tea Time

I have been too tired lately, too much going on, planning for several trips, helping my daughters plan for their unborn babies arriving soon, taking care of the toilet overflow flood issues, taking care of pipe leak at the bottom of the hill of our property that our neighbor kept complaining about. We thought it was from our sprinkler system but our sprinkler guy figured it out to be city water property. I called the city water dept. and they have been fixing it. One less worry for me, at least. On top of all these, John hurt his back by tripping on an elec. cord in the clinic. He can function as long as he is standing up but he has a tough time when he gets up from the bed and after sitting for prolonged time so we are both up and down at night.

Yesterday, I was creating something for my twin grandkids to be, my printer went on the blink. I was so upset that I could not complete my project and then I saw an ad from Office depot and saw that printers are not that expensive. So, I asked John to come with me and we bought a 4 in one HP wireless printer. I set it up all by myself and took me a while setting up it up for wireless but it is working perfectly now, finished my project and I am happy.

Anyway, I feel like I need some "Me" time today, at least this morning since tonight, I plan to connect John's laptop to the wireless printer network too.

I gathered everything I love, after all, this is all for me. I love orange, I love bling and I love flowers. So I picked a beaded table topper we bought from the Caribbean. Then I took my Bavarian Tirschenreuth teapot with pretty orange flowers and an Aynsley cup and saucer with a similar pattern and placed those on a tray edged with acorns.
I thought I'd have my tea in front of the computer so I can blog and read at the same time while watching news on TV. I always multitask.

I gathered all my reading materials, it's actually more browsing than reading so I don't need a lot of concentration....home decor catalogs and a table setting book. I even lit a candle for the ambiance and the fragrant smell. Since I installed a new printer (do you see it?) I did a little rearranging. I moved my art nouveau lamp and ink well here and moved John's desk lamp to his computer desk on the other side across from my desk. I keep my kids picture closeby too.

I told you , I multitask, watching news on TV, sipping tea, looking at catalogs and decorating books, searching for stuff on Ebay and blogging while playing Word with my nephew from California on the i phone.

I had Whittard of Chelsea's cranberry and raspberry flavored tea and my favorite snack, almond pecan blueberry nut clusters. Have you ever tried them? They are made by True North and I buy them from Walmart. They are soooo good! But I have to warn you. They are addictive and it's hard to stop eating them once you start.

Ahhh! So relaxing. I wish I could have more days like this.

Thanks for stopping by y'all!
