Tea Stands for Tuesday - 4/4/17

Good Morning friends.  This Tuesday finds me at the river house.  I will be asking Elizabeth to link me up.  Be sure to visit her to see what everyone is doing this week.

I had a big cup of coffee and a cannoli to get ready for the road trip.  

I was quite excited to get to the river.  Once a year they test the draw bridge adjacent to our property.  Our house is behind those trees in the center of the picture (against the left portion of the bridge).  This is our first year at the property so we were all waiting for this event.

If you want to see the bridge in action here's a video.

The bridge was built in 1933.  Back then there was a lot of shipping along this part of the river.  That is no longer the case but the bridge still works.

That's the excitement here.  What is happening at your place?


  1. Enjoy your time at the River House! Here we are hoping the building process will pick up speed.

  2. I am SO sorry, Darla. I seem to be keeping the wrong type of hours and I didn't see your request until just now. How exciting seeing this must be. I really enjoyed the connection between the raising of the bridge and your cup from London. CLEVER and definitely outside the box. Thanks for sharing this unique event AND your London mug with us for T this Tuesday.

  3. Your coffee and cannoli is the perfect start to your road trip and how exciting to see the draw bridge being tested too! Loved seeing the action shots on the video - the bridge works perfectly, you'd never guess it was that old :-). Enjoy you stay at the river house and wishing you a Happy T Day! J :-)

  4. Your cannoli looks scrumptious, Darla! Enjoy the river house time. It looks like a lovely spot.

    What's happening here? Workers just arrived to start retiling and re-plumbing the shower in our master bath. So I'm typing to the beat of hammers and falling tiles - lol.

    Happy T-day! Hugs, Eileen

  5. Well that IS exciting Darla.
    Timing is everything.
    Yummy cannoli is making me hungry.
    Happy T Day to ya oxo
