Spring in Bloom

March 20, 2013


The light is just wave after wave of goodness here in the studio today. The house is clean. I am deep in the planning stages of meals and feasts for the week ahead of me. Guests are being prepared for. The rocks needn’t cry out today… because we are busy worshiping throughout the day. It may be a cold windy welcome to the first day of Spring outside… but inside it is all a bloom and bursting with color! The oven is warming the kitchen with pans of brownies, rows of blueberry muffins and loaves of banana bread. The smells are amazing.
I am so excited for our guests tonight. They have traveled half a world away and I can’t wait to share a meal with them. It should be interesting… I hope to have wonderful stories to share with you tomorrow.
With all this creating and cooking… I haven’t even eaten today. I have been so busy.

So ,happy first day of Spring to you…

may you have the ability and grace to transition into the new season you have been provided!

    I love all of the beauty here – the Spring flowers, the beautiful, intricate painting, the process of preparing for long awaited guests. There is such great beauty in the details of life, isn’t there?

      How to make a great cup of English tea?
      What is the secret?
      I am American so my tea is strong … how do the English drink their tea?
      These Australians are looking for a type of cup of tea…and I want to impress. 🙂

        T, the funny thing is that even though I’m British, I can’t stand tea! The English drink their tea in so many different ways. My parents have always, always drunk leaf tea so I know how they make theirs. They put 1 slightly rounded teaspoon of tea leaves into the tea pot and fill with hot water. My Mum pours her cup straight away as she likes it very weak, and my Dad pours his after 5 minutes of brewing time.
        In all honesty, every time I make a cup of tea for my husband or for guests, I never know if it’s quite right – some like it strong, some like it weak. Some like it black, some like it milky, but most people just seem happy with how it comes and are grateful for the hospitality, which I am sure will be the case with your Australian visitors too : )
