Hello and Happy T time to you!! I'm joining Elizabeth in this special Tuesday link up sharing what's in our cups and anything we want to talk about. I want to thank Elizabeth for giving us this place to chat and have T together, so warm and friendly these ladies are. To see what Elizabeth's been up too and the other link ups click on the button at to top right of my blog. This is my second week linking up and had so much fun last week, learned a lot about Tea and cups and more. Feel free to join us.
I still have my mind on drawing/painting mugs, these colors seem to still be my favorite this week. If you click on the image you can read the paint names. These lovely colors all have names that go with tea/coffee or flowers, so they were perfect to work with this week. Now to see what's in my tea cup...
yep it's just Lipton tea again, have been having an extra cup in the afternoons due to a cold that I just got. This is when I drink tea a little more then normal, although what I really like with this sore throat is a Wendy's Frosty, had one 2 nights ago but forgot to take a picture, darn it. The tea does help though and soothes my throat. Another warm drink that sounds good right now is hot cider, uumm.
So what did I do with these paint colors, I decided to paint in my art journal. Just playing and no stress or looking for perfect. These were fun to make, they need a little more work but I'm calling it done for now. Have a feeling there will be more of these coming again, guessing it will be in the same colors as they are keeping me happy right now. Here is a look at them...
I loved these colors as soon as they hit the paper, a messy background and pretty cups. I have a hard time journaling on my art pages, fear of messing up my writing and ruining the page. Hoping to be brave though and eventually getting a poem or something on them. One day there will be saucers with my mugs but for now focusing on one thing at a time. What if a teapot appears one day too!!
This week has been filled with some maybe bad news and real sad news. I found out a relative of mine is going thru a health issue right now, we are needing more tests and waiting to hear what will come of it. I am praying and praying hard for a good result to come back, my heart is breaking already and good news would make my whole year x10. So please if you pray, say one for that person and our family. We need all the prayers we can get.
The sad news is that a dear old family friend of my husband's passed away suddenly. My husband hasn't talked to this friend in years. It was one of those things you say tomorrow, next week or when I have more time. Well, time ran out and he didn't get to thank this man for being like a father to him growing up or to talk sports with again or just sit together. I am holding my hubby a little longer and trying to make his days a little easier, wishing I could turn back time and have a chance to talk to this wonderful man. We always want that one last time don't we.
So today remember if you have been putting off calling or visiting or sending a special gift, please do it today, not tomorrow or next week or when you have time. DO IT TODAY!! Please say a prayer for this family too, Rich got to spend the whole day with them yesterday and was so happy to reconnect with them even at this sad time. Now he gets it and we will be making visits to this family and not loosing touch again. My husband needed that and I'm so happy he has another chance with them.
Ok, enough of the sad news how about some kinda happy news....
