Tea Time Tuesday

Hello everyone and welcome to my 18th Tea Time Tuesday!

We Canadians just enjoyed a long Victoria Day weekend with wonderfully warm temperatures. We celebrated Queen Victoria's birthday and that of our reigning Queen Elizabeth's although Elizabeth's is actually on April 21st. It is regarded as the first long weekend of the Summer here in Canada and what a lovely weekend it was!

Many were out spending time in their gardens while others spent time at the beach, including ourselves. Still others went camping for the weekend. It was a perfect weekend, weatherwise!
Once Hubby got the yard work finished, we headed for the beach, and how exhilarating to sink my toes into the warm sand once again! I love walking on the beach and I also love to just lie down and watch the clouds drift by; so relaxing! We had our first burger and strawberry milkshake of the season at Shirley's which is a popular snack bar out at Brackley Beach. It was a beautiful weekend!

Now, on to my tea!
Today I am serving tea in this pretty tea pot. I have the matching salt and pepper shakers and the napkin holder as well which I will not share today.

This tea pot could also be used as a coffee pot because it is taller than most tea pots, and since I don't have any blue teacups, I opted to use my blue mugs.This tea pot has no markings of any kind, just a plain white tea pot with pinky-peach, yellow, and blue flowers on it, adorned with a blue ribbon and topped off with a blue cover.
Would you like to try a cheese biscuit with some apricot jam?
It is a perky little tea pot and since there is some yellow on the pot, I decided to share some of my daffodils. Nothing says Springtime better than daffodils and tulips!

There are many ways to enjoy teatime - formal, casual, business, cream teas, Christmas tea, tea served in a mug which I have done today, tea presented in a fine china cup, a picnic tea outdoors in the country, a cozy snuggled-up-beside-the-fireplace tea for two, an elegant tea on the lawn, or an hour of culinary delight in a stylish tea room.

However you choose to do it, try to set aside some casual time to spend with a friend or loved one for no other reason than to relax and enjoy a laugh, rekindle intimacy, help soothe each other's jangled nerves, or just to let your minds wander together among uncharted dreams. {Excerpt from Tea time With God}

"His soul shall dwell at ease." ~ Psalm 25:13
