|Cup of Joy for the Day|
The crock pot is on with some chicken breasts and rice; the girls are napping, Lizzie is sleeping in our winged back chair we have in the study while I sit here doing some work for Preacher. I was at a good break point so I thought I would brew some tea and write a short line or two.
Today's cup of joy is brought to you by TAZO, a Chi, full leaf black tea. I love this tea!! Not only for the obvious reason: it's black tea (black tea has caffeine) but also because of its very spicy flavor; ...http://www.tazo.com/default.asp?hasFlash=1
This is a neat web site with the teas' ingredients and a little about the history of it...Steeping the tea for at least five minutes is a must and I like to add some cream to smooth the flavor out a little bit. The cup I'm using is from my mothers' collection, Queens China Kenilworth, Staffordshire, England, Est. 1875.
Bella is now an expert at the baby "army crawl". I am beginning to think she may just skip crawling and go straight to walking. She's pulling herself up on the sofa and in the crib...time to lower it I guess. Lizzie and Bella are really starting to be the greatest of playmates...although Bella gets upset very quickly when Lizzie decides that it's Bella's turn to "share". I have the cutest video of Bella playing on this little Lion we got from Aunt Kayla and Uncle Dave last year for Lizzie for Christmas. It's too cute. I said when I first had Bella that my favorite time is when they are new, now I'm saying it's when they start to interact and play with you and giggle. I just love babies I guess.
