It was raining when I went to bed and it just now stopped. More is forecasted and we do really need some rain. And it’s Friday the 13th so it’s a mood setter.

This morning I’m sipping on this lovely new tea I found at Barnes and Noble when I was picking up my copy of The Testaments by Margaret Atwood. This Harney & Sons tea is so delicate and full of ginger and lemon flavor. Great for the tummy and the book, well, we’ve waited a long time for this one!


So I’m all set for the weekend. What will you be doing? Or reading?

Miss Charli Ava is coming over today to try on a dress and see her new bedroom. I’m so excited. I’ve been working hard on this room and it all came together last night. Charli and I are going to buy scrapbook supplies to make her a book of her life. As most of you know, we didn’t get her until she was two, so no baby pictures at all. But never fear, I found someone to send me those and I can’t wait for her to see them. This is on her second birthday. The day we met her.

One of the loves of my life! It’s going to be a fun day! I hope yours is as well. Enjoy your weekend and be kind today. It’s free.

  1. It’s raining here today, too, and yes, it’s very atmospheric! We’ve been indulging in cups of ginger/turmeric tea lately to combat the sudden end to summer (which might return next week!)!

  2. It sounds like a wonderful weekend planned out. Enjoy it very much. It is raining right now here, and I am sitting here trying to catch up on reading blogs that I have gotten so far behind on.

  5. Rain+Reading is the perfect combo! Fortunately since we had our annual Apple Festival here, it was bright and sunny! 🍎

  6. Reading and enjoying a cup of tea while waiting for the rain to stop, just a perfect trio. I hope the sun peaks out so that the clothes can finally be dry.
