Leap Year 2020

"I don’t mind leap years. I know why we need them. But 2020 doesn’t strike me so far as a year that deserves an extra day."

Tea Stands for Tuesday - 2/11/2020

It is still Tuesday morning in my part of the world but I may be the last guest to arrive at Elizabeth's tea party.  February means it is Valentines Day soon and spring about to begin.

This is my favorite teacup/mug.  It was a gift from my granddaughter.    I'm going to enjoy using it every morning

Speaking of Valentines, isn't this a cute hat?  I haven't made it but I plan to sometime before next years V Day.  The hat pattern is free on Ravelry until Valentines day.  For anyone interested put "love-hearts-hat" in the pattern search engine there.

I didn't make any Valentines this year but I'll bet some of the other tea party guests and Elizabeth did.  Lets go look!  Click here.

Tea Stands for Tuesday - 2/4/2020

We've been at the house by the river.  Our citrus trees there are putting out lots of fruit.  Many people don't realize that around the end of January/first of February is the best time to pick oranges here in NoCA.

Our own organic oranges

I use a microplane to zest the oranges before I cut them in half and used an old fashioned juicer to make my orange juice.

While I get my drink ready why don't you visit the tea party at Elizabeth's place?

Welcome February

February is one of my favorite months.  The first signs of spring will be along soon.

Are you anxious for spring to arrive?
