A Winter's Day Alone
On days like today--monochromatic gray, snowy and cold--the best thing to do is to settle in with a pot of jasmine tea, some German Rapsblute honey for sweetening and a new mystery set in San Francisco. It is nice, too, to think of one's sister, who gave me the beautiful tea pot and the tea posey in it....I saw a period piece in which the heroine's brother brought her a lovely flower which opened in the pot when boiling water was added and brewed a lovely tea. My sister found the set and gave it to me. As for the book-- a freebie from Goodreads and a most interesting one at that. It was with great surprise that I looked up and saw that winter's early darkness had arrived! Time for homemade pea soup for dinner.
