Jan 27 (27/365) Tea Time

Normally on Tuesday night I teach/demonstrate a layout or technique for my online scrapbooking group. I rush home, get through dinner and dishes then quick upstairs to get the layout ready to go and get prepared for class time. Tuesdays are pretty rushed for me so my son, Mark asked if he could come over and make dinner for us and bring a new game to play with Skyler. How sweet is that!? Well, Skylers mom called at the last second wanting to take Skyler so he missed out on the fun, but I enjoyed dinner with Mark and getting to visit with him. I didn't play the game lol I'm just not into that anime role playing stuff. I don't understand it and Mark gets annoyed with all the questions! LOL (See Skylers blog to find out what he did tonight :)

I've not been feeling well at all the last two days. While I was making a cup of hot mint tea I thought this would make a great photo for today! I tried to catch the hot steam rising from the cup, but I didn't do a very good job at it. I think it would have worked better with the white wall (or better yet, something dark) as the background instead of the sink. I'm not sure, I'll have to try it again.

This was the second photo I took. Again I was trying to catch the steam and thought perhaps the counter top would show the steam better. Nope.

This is such a yummy and aromatic tea! I get it from my favorite little coffee shop. Jerry, the owner, knows me pretty well and recommended it and he was so right. (sip) mmmmm Now to find the Tylenol.....

That looks like exactly what I needed today. We have no power and the kids can't go outside...they are driving me nuts.

I hope you start to feel better very soon hunny! and yummy on the mint tea!! What about using a darker colored background to catch the steam? maybe brown or even black? I have no idea but just throwing that out there... and maybe what about taking the picture from the bottom looking up kwim?

I love anything mint! I always drink peppermint tea to settle my tummy. I tried a darker background and couldn't get the steam either. I'll have to keep trying till I get it.
