Peppermint tea and a sick day

Our person is unfortunately home ill today. I suggested she be sure to drink lots of nice tea for a sore throat and congestion. Arabella suggested peppermint tea, of which I quite approved, it being one of my favorites.

It just happened that our new tea set arrived just yesterday. We had not yet even had a chance to unpack it.

I carefully did the honor of unpacking the lovely rose tea cups and saucers for the first time.Although, I think I will need a smaller cup since my cup is almost half as big as I am. I am admittedly fond of it, but not even I need that much peppermint tea!
A small thing, but the least we could do to provide a bit of cheer to our person!

Easter Preparations

Greetings Dear Readers!

It is the day before Easter.

The morning started as a rainy, gloom day.
But, there was plenty to do inside...like dyeing "marble" Easter eggs.

Tirion placed each egg in a bag....Added dye to each bag....

And rolled the egg around in the dye.

The finished egg was placed in the holder to dry.

Soon, we had several nice colored eggs.

Then we all donned our Easter finery in preparation for tomorrow.Later in the day, the sun came out.We were able to have an Easter egg hunt. And tomorrow, we will hunt the CHOCOLATE eggs...the best kind of eggs in my opinion!
