All night long last night, the winds blew strongly and some drafts were felt... and it was chilly. Lots of covers on the beds... and a nice warm rice bag (See the post on how to make rice bags here), made things quite cozy while we were in bed. It was so nice to linger in those nice warm covers. :)
This morning; however, when it was time to leave the bed... the little heater and a cup of hot tea sure sounded good. :)
My tea cup, (or mug cup! :) is one of a pair that was given to me by a friend from church. I have had these for several years and I sure enjoy using them. They are beautiful, a nice reminder of my friend and I really like the cups.
As I have said before, tea tastes so much better in a pretty china cup.... or mug. :) If I have to, I will use a plastic cup, but that is so rare that it almost never happens. Even when we have gone camping I have taken a china tea cup with me.... and endured the teasing. :) I did enjoy my tea... or hot cocoa, in it though. I have even taken a more masculine version of a china, stoneware or ceramic mug for my husband and he has enjoyed it.
I would not take these cups camping or stashed in my purse, as these are special and I do not want to break them. I have found cute tea cups at garage sales that are not special to me and though they are pretty, I won't be too upset if they get broken, so those are the ones I take to such functions. My husband likes a big heavy cup and doesn't mind the thick rim of the cup, but I prefer a smaller rim... a thinner cup... not so thin and delicate that I am afraid to drink from it, but thin enough to feel comfortable drinking from it.
The first thing I do in the morning is to have time with the Lord as I read my Bible.... and I do enjoy having a cup of tea as I read sometimes. Other times, I have the tea after I am ready for the day.... regardless, there is usually tea somewhere in my day. As the days get cooler, the hot cups of tea are even more appealing. After a few days of rain and gloomy skies, the sun is out so brightly this morning and I am enjoying my second cup of tea now. I hope you have a wonderful day and that your day includes time with God... and maybe even a cup of tea. :) Thank you for visiting my blog today.
