A Winter's Day Tea

                                                                        Peaceful Sunday!

                                                       It is a quiet winter Sunday here and
                                                       I am going to enjoy a new book by
                                                       the fireside today with a cup of tea.
                              And maybe even a piece of
                                     sticky date cake left over from
      New Year's.

               Beautiful creamy white roses.

                                                                      A pot full of tea and I
                                                                      am all set for the afternoon!
                                                After a trip to the library yesterday,
                                                           I have a stack full of books to read.
                                                           One of the pleasures of a winter day
                                                            in January for me is having more time to
                                                            curl up with a good book and escape into
                                                            another world for awhile.

                                                                               Hope you have a relaxing
                                                                               afternoon too!

Delightful and refreshing after the bright colours of Christmas. Nothing is better than a good book by the fireplace to enjoy a peaceful afternoon while the rain is bitting the windows like here today. Helene

So pretty, Carolyn. Winter is a great time to relax, and regroup. I love the time when I don't have any commitments and I can have some "me" time! Happy New Year to you and yours!
