Gardening, cooking, crafting and being Nannie

Let's talk about addictions. No, not to drugs, or alcohol or smoking, thank heavens for that. But I do have a few. I don't think any of them are anything to worry about. My first addiction is to tea.

I'm a southern girl so I grew up on Iced Tea year round. If you come to my house for dinner you will have a choice of sweetened or unsweetened (not to worry, if you don't drink tea I'll find something for you). In the past couple years I have started drinking hot tea. I like trying new flavors.

Right now my favorites are English Breakfast tea. That's what I had this morning with blueberry muffins I just made. I used my lemon for the zest to go in the muffins. My other favorites are English Tea Time, a ginger peach tea my grandaughter gave me for Christmas and Chai.

I might get all my different boxes and tins out and take a picture of them all for you.

Right now here are a couple pictures of my morning indulgence.

What a difference a week makes. Last weekend we had snow and ice. This weekend sunny weather and much warmer. I saw a bit of green poking up through the mulch and leaves the other day. Could spring be on it's way?

I took a lot of books to the used bookstore the other day. I had a $47 credit. Cool getting to "buy" new books without spending a penny. I got 3 books by Anne Rice. I read The Witching Hour years ago and loved it. I got Lasher but never could get into it. Picked it up the other day and started reading it but the thing was falling apart so I got another copy of it. I think it was $1.25.

I got another cookbook, too. I have a cookbook collection and like just reading them. I like cookbooks that came with specific products or appliances.

Its gloomy here today. Supposed to snow again. I hope not.

"Snow showers in Georgia" Will the weathermen ever get it right around here?

Chopped salad recipe I made at Christmas. I thought it turned out very pretty and it was good, too.

A new Year.

I need to get here more often. I'm not really sure what is keeping me from writing more.

I got a new Stampington magazine, Artful Blogging. Love to read it and the pictures are great. Reading the magazine always makes me want to do more of my own. They have numerous magazines I love. I can't bear to part with them, either.

One of the others I got was the "Green" magazine. There are so many neat ideas in there. Tomorrow is going to be my day to work on some of my own projects.
