The Mad Tea Party is days away isn't it?
Must get the magic into focus...
I have not an idea what I shall do.
But I will whip something up, per my usual insane ways of doing things.
Well, I have a tiny bit of an idea, but do you think I have started yet?
Why, of course not :)
I peek around my studio, looking for bits and bobs of this and that.
A dash of inspiration, a hint of surprise...
Around the studio I go, snooping to and fro.
What do I see, what do I seeeee?
Anything calling me?
Oh yes yes.
I lose my way, so easily.
So easily you see.
But it's tea.
Tea it's all about.
Oh my, oh me.
The thing is, it's been madness of its own kind around here.
Winds like you can't believe.
Uprooting my giant dahlia, cosmos and other things.
(I know, sobs)
Peach tree branches ever so full hit the ground.
No rain, but scary wind.
Live wires sparking in the back of the property at 3 a.m.
Winds whipping like scary scary.
Us up all night making sure our house does not burn down.
Sparks like Disneyland fairy magic fly up into the sky off those electrical wires, I tell ya.
If only it was good and not live wires whipping about.
But all is calm now.
We shall see what this afternoon brings.
As monsoons, in their season, visit every late afternoon.
Bringing thick clouds and scary winds at the end of the day.
And maybe, just maybe, some rain if you are lucky.
For now I snoop around my studio...
I still haven't even had a chance to tidy up the place, if you can believe it.
And, I chopped up that Rouge Vif D' Etampes Pumpkin.
Oh, it was so crazy tender, you could have eaten it raw.
(I did a bit)
I saved some raw pieces actually.
Then I made some pumpkin, chick pea, mint, basmati rice curry.
Oh it was goooood.
And now, now...
The scent wafting about is...
Cloves, cinnamon, butter, brown sugar and pumpkin.
Mister Lovee says it's beyond delicious.
What a scent...
I think it needs to be poured over vanilla ice cream personally.
Must watch that clock...
I never knew how easily distracted and downright rotten I was.
I knew a little, but this is just ridiculous.
I need a manager.
Someone to set me straight.
Well, maybe not ;)
I think and dream and wonder...
What ever shall I conjure up?
I need to crawl up in the cottage loft...
Tea and lunch, plus a good book in hand.
Listening to this...
That should begin to do the trick.
Happy safest 4th of July!!
We are staying home, grilling, doing some needed chores.
And perhaps watching fireworks from the roof.
I love staying home on crazy days like the 4th.
Any nifty plans in your neck of the woods?
Okay, off I go for now.
I have made myself seriously dizzy with all my chatter ;)
