Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait Tea and Peace in the Kingdom

Good Morning! The sun is definitely going to be a factor today. It’s already heating up and sunny. And it’s quiet. Well except for those two birds gossiping on the fence. Enjoying a cup of David’s Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait.  Different than my normal but rather nice!

Since one of my tea sellers noted on my IG that I was not giving them enough cupboard time, I am trying to do better.

We here at the Pirate Nation are being extremely tight-lipped about a few things. I am the worst person in the world to have to keep a secret. Just my own though. Lord knows I keep enough of other folks secrets in the vault that has become my brain. But if it’s my own secret I almost have to superglue my lips. However one of them I can now share.

I entered a tea in the World Tea Expo which is in the Fall. I did. That, unfortunately, is all I can say. But I am very excited.

Yesterday was Eye day. It’s a lot different going to the Eye Institute with children than it is going alone. Since I was the patient it was up to Tommy to do child care and bathroom duty. And he cleared those bathrooms for our priceless babies like a Navy Seal Team. The boy thought he could get out without washing his hands. Not going to happen Spidey! Tommy told him to get back and wash his hands and an elderly gentleman looked at him and simply said, “Good Man!”.

The eye is looking good. Still have 11 stitches and they probably won’t come out ever. Now I get to be fitted with the sceleral lens and if that doesn’t allow me to see, we’ll go in and zap the little flap so they can put in the intraocular lens.  I don’t have to go back to my surgeon for 4 months. Now I’ll have a different doctor. It’s like breaking up. Although he said I could call anytime. This is really good news as it was one of the factors in a decision we made. So I won’t have to wear glasses much longer.

This week I’m going to try dying eggs only with tea. I love the natural shades. I’ll let you know how it goes. Last time I messed with food color I had a lock of green hair for a while so I try to avoid those.

For those of you still getting slammed by winter, sending you warm hugs and mugs!

I’m taking my tea and a book to the porch!

xx Patricia

    Good to hear the eye is mending well and good prospects for it on the horizon. Love the collage today. Good for Tommy to catch the hand washer. So many never learn that. Secrets are hard and congrats on even entering the tea expo. That’s a big deal. I’m behind on my reading and hope to catch up soon.
