Good morning, friends. My goodness, how the time has flown by. So happy to have you join me for a cup of tea! Let’s chat. 🙂
If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: or rather, ask you, is time moving more quickly these days? Or is it just me? I could swear it was just Monday, but here we are again, six days later. Whoosh! I wish I could get some of that time back.
If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: birthday’s have ended here until January. Now we look forward to Thanksgiving. This will be the first year in ages that I will not be cooking. It’s too much for me to do, my condition has made itself heard. No more big dinners! We are deciding what to do. Options include: Turkey sandwiches, with cranberry sauce & mashed potatoes – Hot open-faced turkey sandwiches with mashies & gravy – or – going to a restaurant for a buffet. I am leaning toward the restaurant. I won’t have left overs, but I also won’t have to clean up when it’s over!! What would you do?
If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: we had a blast with Shadow this week, and we get to play and walk him tomorrow night, too! He is such a sweetheart and LOVES my husband! We also got to walk Darty on Thursday & Friday. He is such a love. I found him curled up on his sofa (Yes he has his own sofa!), patiently waiting for me to give him tummy rubs. I wish someone would do that for me. lol

If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: it’s been a strange week without Alyssa around. She’s been in Pennsylvania since last Saturday. I really miss her. She’ll be home Tuesday morning. I can’t wait! Speaking of Alyssa…
If you’re into TV shows, like Nancy Drew, Riverdale, Arrow or The Flash, etc, Alyssa has a review blog that needs a little bit of loving from the WP community. If you’d like to follow, here’s the link: Comic Reviews and More by Alyssa
If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: aaaaannnnd, more about Alyssa! She’s roped me into a business venture. So we are now partners in…well…I can’t tell you yet! I know, I’m horrible to tease this way. I promise, I will be making an announcement soon. I’m both extremely excited and extremely terrified. When you have anxiety (and truly, unless you have it, you have no idea how it feels), even the smallest things can be overwhelming. And this is no small thing. So look for an announcement from us, probably some time after Thanksgiving.
If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: tomorrow, we celebrate Veteran’s Day, here in the states. It’s a day we honor the men and women of the military, who have fought or are fighting, to protect our freedoms. I can’t thank them, and their families, enough, for making the sacrifices which keep us safe! So next time you see someone in uniform, consider stopping and saying thank you. ❤
If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: on our Saturday trip to Sunnybank Park, we found a bird we have never seen before. He was hunkered down by a small tree stump. Had he not moved, we never would have noticed him. He’s a Long-billed Curlew. This is a new one for me, and hubby took this picture with my camera. How cool is this bird!

As for the week ahead:
If we were sipping tea, basking in the sun and talking I would tell you: I am looking forward to having Lys back home, and all the fun things that lie ahead for all of us here. I am slowly getting back to my old self (not rushing it), and once I am, there’ll be no stopping me.
If we were sipping tea, basking in the sun and talking I would tell you: it’s off to church I go! It’s Fellowship Day and we have bagel detail! Until next time, be well, and have a blessed week, my friends! ❤
