Tea Stands for Tuesday 5/12/2020

I look forward to Tuesdays and the tea party Elizabeth hosts every week.  It is one of my happy places.  I will be having a cup of English Breakfast Tea as I join the group.

Here is a pair of socks I just finished knitting for DH.  Hot off the needles as they say.  I'm calling them his Quarantine Socks.  I used some yarn from my stash and the two socks aren't exactly alike.  I'm fine with that though.  Not recycling but certainly using what I have.

I hope everyone is staying in and staying safe.

Tea Stands for Tuesday - 5/5/2020

Good morning friends.  Today is Cinco de Mayo, celebrated by much of the Latin community here in the Bay Area.  Normally we would go out for a Mexican lunch but not this year.  This year we celebrate at home.  You can see my blue Mexican hand blown glass ready for my margarita.

Cinco de Mayo is an annual celebration held on May 5. The date is observed to commemorate the Mexican Army's victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla, on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza. (Wikipedia)

Lets visit our Tea Party Hostess Elizabeth to see what everyone is doing this week.

Happy Birthday Elizabeth!

Good morning to all my Tea Party friends.  I hope you are doing well in these odd times.  

Do to a number of things, I'm unable to join the party or post on my blog on a regular basis.  The Tea Party goes on at Elizabeth's blog though and you shouldn't miss it.  Hop on over and see what people are posting and wish her a Happy Birthday.

Happy Saturday

Are you coloring eggs this year?  We won't be spending time with any little people this year so no egg hunt here.  Coloring and hiding eggs was always part of the fun of Easter when my girls were growing up.

My Name is Lucy Barton (book)

I've been reading a lot during this stay at home period.  I'm fortunate to have an e-reader and a local library that has lots of ebooks I can borrow.

Some time ago,  I read "Olive Kitteridge" and liked it very much. Strout was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for that novel. 

I just finished this one.  I don't know what took me so long to get back to this author.  I like her somewhat contemplative writing style. I already have "Anything Is Possible" on my reader ready to go. Are you familiar with Strout's work?  What book recommendation do you have for me?
