A day where life unfolds slowly as I potter about watering the plants, wiping the kitchen counters, tidying up the kitchen and doing some laundry. A pretty ordinary day really but that is how I like it.
Apart from the hum of the washing machine and a snoring cat snoozing on the kitchen chair it's hushed and calm.
The startling sound of a whistling kettle signals that it is time for tea.
I do love a great blend of tea and I have several that I keep on hand.
The everyday pedestrian tea is Ty-phoo decaf tea and I drink copious amounts of this brew.
In my tea cupboard I currently have Murchie's "Golden Jubilee", Harrods "Stronger Tea"
assorted Silk Road teas...my favourite being The Abkhazi blend.
Cookies made a couple of days ago ~ chocolate chip and dried cranberry.
Taste great on the first bite.
No need to have more than one...nibble it slowly and savour the flavour.
I started to read this novel awhile back but then a library hold came available so I put this down.
I am back reading it now and it is a fun read despite the morbid topic.
Australian author Debra Adelaide's novel was nominated for the Orange Prize for Fiction.
I'm almost finished and don't want to put it down.
I love when a book grabs you and holds your interest.
I think with a title like this, I might have an inkling what might happen in the end.
So I bid you fond adieu,
I'm off to read in our Humble Bungalow living room.
I think there will be one Morris chair available as Chester has settled onto a kitchen chair so I predict that Pepper will be on the other Morris chair!
Hope that your week is chock full of good things.
