Cats Love Tea Time

Miss Stripey Cat enjoys lounging in the parlor on a very old pillow given by our older sister years ago. That pillow has been slept on, chewed on, sat on, and still is well loved.

Red Rose Tea

June is such a lovely, but hot, month out here. The early morning, however, is perfect, and sitting on the patio is one of my most favorite things in the world. Add tea and a book and the parlor is in heaven.

This week, we've been serving blueberry waffles, turkey bacon, and good, old fashioned Red Rose tea. It takes me back to being a little girl, at my grandmother's with my mother and her sisters, when they drank Red Rose tea and sat at the lace-covered table, gossiping and chatting and having a wonderful time together. It's homey and comforting and surprisingly delicious. Now we are looking for a lace tablecloth for the parlor.
