Thursday Tea Time - 1st Edition

My good friend Judy from Benmakesten and Homeschool Faith and Family Life has participated in this meme every week for a long time.  I look so forward to Judy's posts about her Tea Time...especially when she posts pictures of here tea cups or other drinking vessels.  For me, it's a way to share a friendly quiet moment with her...even though we live so far away from each other.

The meme is hosted by Ruth at Celebrate Friendship.  Ruth describes it this way:

"This meme is purely for heart's sake. This is an invitation to have few minutes each Thursday for a tea break in front the computer and answer the following questions:
1. I'm having...(Share what kind of tea/coffee/drinks you're having.) You can share a bit about your teacup/mug.
2. I'm feeling....(no need to explain why if you don't want to)     
3. On my mind....(random thoughts)
4. Then leave a line, a verse, or a quotation to encourage the readers (and yourself).
It doesn't have to be long. Just a light talk to make hearts light. You may want to add a photo or two."

So here is my first attempt at this meme.

1.  I'm first cup of coffee this Thursday morning!  I'm enjoying it with 1 packet of Splenda and some half & half.  The mug is one I purchased at Starbucks several years ago.  I bought it because it reminded me of favorite season. 

2.  I'm feeling......a little tired this morning.  I need to get the kids up, but once I do, our morning will begin in FULL FORCE and I'm not sure I'm ready for that yet.  I can hardly wait for Easter break when I can let them sleep a little longer in the morning.

3.  On my mind......lots of things.  Tuition for the 2012-2013 school year is first and foremost.  It's a daunting task that must be addressed very soon.  It's times like these when I miss homeschooling the most.  Since that is not an option, I need to move on and allow myself to embrace traditional school with a new zeal and determination.

4.  My favorite verse has always been John 3:30....."He must increase, but I must decrease"

Here is my mug:

Please stop by Ruth's blog and join in on this fun meme!  I waited way too long.!

So wonderful to have you at Tea Talk while we gather at Ruth's! YAY!
Next week, don't forget to add your link over at her place so the other Tea Ladies can find your entry:)

Praying for peace and provisions in the tuition situation:)

Thanks for your comment on my new blog :) Tuition can be so intimidating - every once in a while when I have a particularly rough day, my DH reminds me that we can always put the kids in Catholic school, but I'm daunted by the cost!

Hey Judy, I tried to add my link at Ruth's but the last post she had was for 3/22 and it was "closed". Perhaps she doesn't do it every week.
