It took me a long time to learn to like hot tea. I like the ceremony of it. But, tea is not for impatient people. There is a process to making a good cup and it shouldn’t be rushed.  However, I am not a patient person. I’m especially not patient in the morning when I… Continue reading Time for Tea

Grandma, on the other hand, had 9 children and 27 grandchildren. Boy,  Aunt Bert liked all the action at my Grandma’s when she’d come visit! Only problem was that they… Continue reading Toucan Play at THAT Game!
