Isn't this just a ZETTI tea set? I love it. "D" brought it with her when she came to visit as a house gift for me. IT IS SO ME! Everything fits in that little blue saucer. She had each piece wrapped in tissue and I was clueless at first as to what went in all the little indentations.
I'm having green tea with coconut in it. It's some kind of Thai brand. It's actually very good.
Yesterday was my Mystery Book Club meeting, at the local library. Many people on vacation so we were a rather quiet group. I didn't have anything to recommend, the last two new mystery books I read were disappointing.
The one we read for the group was Hard Tack. I can't remember who wrote it. I know it's her first book. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay to much sailing information for me. I don't plan to sail, go on a sail boat or act on one in a movie. It was also a "locked door" mystery which frankly is quite a challenge, these days to pull off and she didn't. So, I couldn't even vote that it was a good beach read.
Our list is being complied for next year's reading. We do get to vote on the suggestions and the most votes gets selected. Getting on the list is tough because of the cut backs the librarian doesn't have any extra money to spend to buy additional copies of books. So, if there are only 1-4 copies of a suggested title it isn't "list worthy" because that's not enough for a buddy system of sharing.
I had some time this morning and went to Olbrich Gardens to take some pictures of their plantings and flowers. It's really a beautiful spot but I went without mosquito spray and that was a HUGE mistake. Even one of the garden workers was complaining that he was covered with Deet and still covered with the mosquitoes.
I felt so sorry for a tour bus of senior ladies that arrived as I was leaving. I hope they thought to bring some spray, although I'm not sure even that was going to help them.
I took about twenty steps into the gardens, snapped some quick pictures and scurried back inside the main building. Nope, I'm not that tough and I'm not sure I have enough spit in me to take care of all the bites I would get.
The sun is out now and the temperature is climbing. Another day in the low 90s for us. It's rather like opening the door and walking into a large oven. Even I find it hard to breath outside and I have pretty good lungs.
I'm off to my Mixed Media & Art Quilt group meeting, at the library. My canvas is too large to bring but I'll bring my little sketchbook cover for show and tell. It's about all I have for now.
