A Cup of Tea by Lilian Westcott Hale for Collier’s Magazine, 1909:
I wish I could spend today drinking tea and reading books about awesome women. Alas!
The last few days have been pretty stressful, so on Saturday I popped in to the fabulous bakery that’s just around the corner from my day job. I saved this scrumptious scone for this morning’s breakfast. Between it, a cup of my fave tea, and a good book…I’m feeling a tad better.
A few weeks ago, when I wasn’t home, The Chef broke my A Room of One’s Own mug. He immediately ordered a replacement, plus this baby. My husband really is the best.
…at Stauf’s-German Village. I had a chai-der (chai latte/cider combination) and an epic blueberry muffin.
On Sunday morning, my fine husband made me some fabulous, tasty tres leches cake hot tea. He’s a keeper.
My grandmother is downsizing. A couple of weeks ago, she gave me some of her Pope Gosser wedding dishes from 1952. I’ve made it a point to incorporate them into daily life, which, given their delicate prettiness, has been easy. The cups and saucers are a wonderful addition to my tea ritual.
