12 Days of MY Birthday (Day 8)

Dec 14

December 14th — Day 8 of  the 12 Days of MY Birthday… Ooohhh…today I started early. A little after midnight on this 8th day of my 12 days of birthday my friend gave me a fun little present… Day 8    A Teeny Tiny Tea Set Oh! Fun! We had a ‘spot’ of tea! Hehehehe… this was fun. Though the cups were way less than even 1/8th a teaspoon. It was good fun to pretend. It generated some good pictures, hearty laughs and good conversation. It also spawned a bigger idea about making a tea time more regularly! =) Dressing up in fancy hats and shoes…inviting people over… Here, enjoy some of the great photos. A Teenie Tiny Tea Party! Happy day 8 of the 12 days of my birthday… And a teeny tiny thank you for my fanciful...

12 Days of MY Birthday (Day 7)

Dec 13

December 13th — Day 7 of  the 12 Days of MY Birthday… Another day to play my game and relax. Since it is not my turn to do dishes… or cook… I could just read and play my game. And I did just that. I am now well into Westward IV: All Aboard. The mayor of Haverbrook is not entirely convinced I can run his trains properly so he is making me prove it. I took a break from this test of my endurance to post! My dearest friend made some homemade potato salad and surprised me with some new bookmarks! YAY! =) I love bookmarks. I really like the magnet clip kind and the spiral metal ones. She got me two different kinds of magnet clip bookmarks. Day 7    Magnetic Bookmarks AND residual game playing, tea drinking and cookies! As an avid reader I am almost always reading multiple books at once. It is nice to have enough bookmarks to keep my page in each. These little magnetic bookmarks are perfect. But I seem to lose them easier or I give them away…because people comment on them or what not. It is a relief to replenish my arsenal of bookmarks. Happy day 7 of the 12 days of my birthday… Thank you friend for knowing me so well—and knowing what I need. You are the...

12 Days of MY Birthday (Day 3)

Dec 09

December 9th — Day 3 of  the 12 Days of MY Birthday… Today, I decided to enjoy my tea, savor it–the warmth, the flavor, the way it comforts me when I am cold or do not feel well and incidentally, I do not. I have a sinus infection and needed some comforting. Tea, oatmeal, my thick quilt all warming me, comforting me. Happy birthday to me. My friend surprised me today with a new mug in a pretty little keepsake box from Starbucks. Both are red with a white tree and gold birds and I love them! =) Another cup to enjoy my tea in…a box to keep. I love boxes! YAY for friend! Day 3   Birdy Mug with matching keepsake box Happy day 3 of the 12 days of my birthday… Thanks AGAIN friend for celebrating with...

12 Days of MY Birthday (Day 2)

Dec 08

December 8th — Day 2 of  the 12 Days of MY Birthday… Today, I decided I would wake up and eat oatmeal and fresh cut up fruit. This is one of my favorite foods during the colder months…and thus would be my celebration for Day Two. =) That was enough for me…but my friend had other ideas… She surprised me with some holiday tea by Barnes and Noble in honor of day two of my 12 days of birthday! How fun! She wanted to take part in this celebration. YAY! =) I like to share little things that ground us and build relationships. Day 2   Holiday Tea from Barnes and Noble — yummy stuff. It is a nice cold weather tea with cinnamon, almonds, cloves and citrus in a black tea blend. Happy day 2 of the 12 days of my birthday… Thanks friend for celebrating with...
