I am so utterly delighted that both of my children like to drink tea. This warms the inner workings of my Anglophilic heart like nobody's business! Granted, I shall have to wait to introduce them to the glories of black tea until I'm willing to let them consume caffeine, but Red Raspberry leaf tea will do for now (besides, it's quite healthy and actually reminds me of black tea).
I recently unpacked a set of dishes I had as a child, and decided that it was time for Rosa to have her own tea mug -- Little Man has my childhood Postman Pat mug, so it seemed appropriate for Rosa to have my Mrs. Tiggywinkle mug! It's the perfect size for her chubby little fingers.
Life is speeding by -- not busy, really (I'm trying to avoid using the word "busy" these days, because it's so overused in our culture), but very full. The roses on our back porch finally bloomed, much to my delight. I couldn't believe the profusion of roses a few weeks ago! They've all bloomed out now, but for a few weeks our locale seemed covered in them.
Also, Little Man's type A tendencies are becoming increasingly apparent. Just take a gander at this very symmetrical creation:
During a recent visit to Barnes and Noble, he sat at the Duplo table and made a square house -- the entire first layer of bricks was one color, and the second layer was another color. As a child, I was a bit psychotic about matching, symmetrical Lego colors, so it's interesting to see that Little Man is the same way!
I have more to share -- a few projects and such -- but between a visit from my family (hurray!) and my general lack of motivation to upload pictures, that will have to wait for another time. It seems strange to be saying goodbye to May already. I wonder what June will have in store?
