Don't get me wrong...I can drink tea no matter where it comes from on the way to my cup. I just happen to like all of the things to go with it too. My Mom and I had matching china tea cups that we would have tea together while talking on the phone. She was in MI and I was here in CO. She passed away in Dec. I sure do miss her and our little tea party times!

Sorry to hear about your loss. Maybe you can keep the tradition going with another family member or a friend! It sounds like a wonderful thing to do together. I may try it with my mom. We both love tea, and although we aren't very far (about 2 hours) I haven't been able to get up there with the weather. We could do it over skype too.

I knew what you meant, Chopper.
Sometimes it's nice to have a little ritual when you doing something you enjoy.

I had to smuggle in the new tea pot set I bought. Shrek hasn't noticed it, yet.
Well, Princess, are you going to share what kind of Tea pot set did you get, or are you going to wait until Shrek finds it before you tell us? Description, please; picture if possible.

I'm not sure, it's only about two feet away from him on the shelf. He has to turn his head a little, I can see it just fine from across the room.

Not much snow here. Lots of wind, and it is 16 degrees below zero right now. Burrr...!

Nice to hear of another tea drinker. I just love tea pots, tea sets, tea-for-one-sets...[/QUOTE]

I've been collecting them since I was 2...they are all over the place.

I'll get a picture tonight, getting ready for work right now.

My MIL left me her (& her Mother's) silver tea set. I'll be giving it to my Step-Daughter in a few years, when I get tired of dusiting it.

Andy, I think I hate you
We got a little taste of storm in the night, call it an appetizer. The main course is due to start about 6pm here. They are predicting 10-16 inches of snow for us but since they always exaggerate we will probably only get 7 or 8 inches

We have everything we need to weather the storm and I took two days off work so I don't have to drive in it. But I am trying to decide what I want to cook. If the electricity goes out we will want some foods that don't need heating. I'm kind of stuck for ideas. All I can think of at the moment is sandwiches. I have a ton of jumbo eggs that I could do something with. Maybe this is a good time to get the family to eat some raw produce!

Thankyou for a heartfelt responce. Please do this with your mom when you can't be together. It feels good to pass this on. My mother's death was life changing, but so were all of the special things we did together. Enjoy your mom and a good cup of tea. Give her my love!
