A Sweet Surprise

This morning I am enjoying a cup of Hot Cinnamon Spice tea and boy do I need it... Read on to hear the rest of the story.  My mug is one my daughter Shirley gave me several years ago. It has strawberries on the front of it. I love the size and the shape!!

I'm feeling yucky. Have a UTI and sinusitus. I'm hoping the antibotic will knock out both problems.

On my mind.... my friend, Linda J. at I went to the post office a couple of days ago and had a package. Wasn't expecting anything so I ripped into it right there in the post office. This is what I found.... an absolutely wonderful journal. It's nearly too pretty to write in!! That woman knows me well. I've kept journals almost all my adult life and I sure love this one. There was also four packs of tea, 2 of Hot cinnamon spice and 2 of Pomegranate oolong. I am going to enjoy those big time.

Linda and I go a way back almost to the very beginning of my blogging life. You just ought to hop on over and pay her a visit. She loves tea!! Oh, my does she... the blog title tells the tale. So, thank you, Linda, for my wonderful surprise and for being such an amazing friend.

My quote for today is from the journal that Linda sent me...

To everything there is a season. A time for every purpose under heaven.
Ecclesiastes  3:1  NKJV

  5. Thank you so much for your comment on the Fitz and Floyd ceramics....I came on over to your blog and fell in love with it....keep telling your stories. What a wonderful Sunday gift reading about your cotton and getting a sense of the history....up here in cold Minnesota, I could only tell you about detasseling corn...actually not so different! Keep on writing and I hope you feel better.
