It is one of those lovely days where I plan to stay at home. I brewed a pot of Earl Grey, won't you stop by and have a cup with me.
I am remembering my mother today for some reason. Instead of just having tea in a mug I made a pot they way my mother used to. I am drinking it out of a real china cup and have an urge to play Enya. I always feel she is around then. She has often asked me to play Enya, one of her favorites.
This is a picture of her back in the seventies. Oh how I long to have a cup a tea with her. Alas a cup with my memories will have to do.
My mother taught me to sew when I was a child and it set me on a lifelong exploration with creative things. Thanks Mom. She loved her tea, we would always have some after dinner. I am sure it was due to her Irish roots. By then my dad and brothers had left the table but us girls would have tea with mom and lots of conversation. Those seemed ordinary moments at the time but now they are really precious memories.
Do you feel your life just has just ordinary moments? Now you know that you are making precious memories for someone. Lets salute those special ordinary moments. I'd love to hear some of yours.
