Dicey


This was my afternoon tea yesterday. It is getting to the place where I must have afternoon tea and no little herbal number either thank you. Yesterday was a lovely English breakfast tea; today, I'm going to try the Irish breakfast tea. The Goldfish? Just like stealing candy from the grands. 



Oh my! What are they doing there? More on this another day...


John said, "Whatever soup you're cooking on the stove looks a little dicey."

Hahahahaha...what a card!

There'll be a whole lot of these in my day. It's a teacher's workshop so I have the grands. I'll be around later. Have a good one!

  3. Hi Vee,

    John reminds me of my hubby, Hal. :) Those dice are so pretty and colorful; I haven't seen any like that before.

    I know what you mean about the herbal tea. Not to offend any herbal tea lovers, but I have never cared for herbal tea. Let me know what you think of the Irish Breakfast Tea; that is one of my favorites!! It does pack a bit of a punch, though, so you probably don't want to have it in the evening. :)

    Have fun with your precious grands, Vee!

    Hugs,

  5. Are those the missing taters? LOL. I'm like you and like real tea but will have the odd cup of an herbal, it just doesn't do it for me though.
    I feel today is going to be a gaming day at your house. Have fun!

  6. Hmm..those look like the missing 'taters,lol. Have fun with the grands. (can't wait to hear all about that and the dice, lol.) Blessings

  7. I treasure my time with my grands--have a wonderful day and no card tricks!

  8. What do you mean another day? Even my hubby is asking me if you ever found your potatoes. Blogging about goldfish when you should be answering the tough questions....like WHERE WERE THE 'TATORS? hahaha! Hugs!

  9. I understand about the tea and the need for something hearty. I don't find most herbal teas that satisfying, except for peppermint. LOL, I see that the potato sack that has been AWOL since before Christmas has shown up - finally! Was it in the car the whole time? Fess up! And I surmise from the dice photo that you were boiling them to disinfect. Perhaps they were a score from a thrift shop or flea market.

  10. I sense a mystery solved (potatoes?) and one presented (what are you going to do with the dice?).
    I need to have some afternoon tea, though it's not quite 10am.

  11. Sounds like you are in for a fun day.
    So, the potato mystery has been solved!
    Such a pretty cup of tea and love the fish!

  12. I just can't wait to hear the potatoes story!!
    Have a grand day together!

  13. I've been known to steal goldfish too, and yes I need caffeine in my afternoon tea. Wow those are colorful dice … were you cleaning them or making soup?

  14. A good cup of tea on these cold, cold days, cant be beat. Enjoy the grands.

  15. When a recipe calls for diced potatoes, it doesn't mean you have to use actual dice Vee...
    :-)
    I am enjoying imagining you quietly sipping tea from a fine china tea cup in the middle of a swirl of grandsons.

  16. Hot tea and hot cocoa are my staples these days. Love your dicey picture.

  17. I've been drinking a lot of tea this winter and Twining's classics have been in my cup many times too. I have the Irish Breakfast tea but haven't tried it yet. Hubby likes the English version. Your snack of goldfish suits me fine too. Yummy. Are those the missing potatoes??? Can't wait to hear that story. I'm guessing your sanitizing the dice? ;-) Enjoy your day with the boys.

  18. I love the cup and saucer! Beautiful!

  19. I have been drinking more tea too, I'm usually a coffee person, but I've been craving something a bit lighter and tea fits the bill.

  20. Looks like you found that missing sack of potatoes? I have to say I've never seen that combination...tea and goldfish on any of the "tea blogs" I visit. Fun times. A little dicey? Ha! too funny. Looking forward to the back story...
    Enjoy your teaching time today!

  21. Cute post. Love Irish Breakfast tea - had that a lot in my youth.

    The dice are so colorful - you must be the best grandma, so fun and playful.

    Can't wait to learn more about that soon. Have a fabulous week.

  22. John is very witty! Let us know how you like the Irish breakfast tea. I've had to switch from coffee to tea due to heart burn.

    ReplyDelete
  23. The lost has been found. I'll wait for that story.

    Don't you love teacher's workshops? Right up your alley! I think I might be raiding your dice stash to replenish a few that are missing from game boxes over here.

  24. Have you tried any of the tea with lavender and rose hips that Susan Branch talks about in her book? I'm thinking I've got to order some. She says it's like having dessert and I'm all for that!

    Where did you find the potatoes? Or is this a replacement bag?

    ReplyDelete
  25. I adore the teacup.....so pretty!

    ReplyDelete
  26. haha... too cute, Vee! And did you find your potatoes?! Where were they? Have a blessed Monday, friend.

  27. Afternoon tea is a must for me too. Always a whole pot of Earl Grey and my large cup and saucer bought for me by my son. Chocolate buttons are my current passion for an accompaniment.

  28. Love your dicey soup!

    We LOVE Irish Breakfast Tea around here! Yum!

    Have fun with the grands….

  29. Many mysteries here this morning. Dice on the stove? Are they being sterilized?
    A bag of potatoes. Are they the missing ones?
    As you make memories with the grands, I shall be pondering the possibilities. Have a fun day and don't feel any need to rush back, although I am curious to learn more. No pressure. Ha ha.

  30. Why are you washing the dice? Why do you have so many dice? Do the kids know you are eating their goldfish? Yay, you found the potatoes before it was too late. Enjoy your day with the boys, I bet you're a fun grandma.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I can not WAIT to hear about those potatoes!!!! I have been wondering about them! Still can't find MY journal!
    I think I shall join you in afternoon tea. Make mine Earl Grey, please!

    ReplyDelete
  32. What is going on at your house today, Vee??? Let's see...dicey soup, goldfish with tea, missing tators. Hmmm. Very, very mysterious.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Hooray for the potato bag re-appearance! Did it have a nice time somewhere warm? I find goldfish irresistible - just like the little Misses do. Are you cleaning the dice? Have fun with the grands.

  34. Vee,

    I'm trying to figure out what concoction you have cooking on the stove! Until we are enlightened, love your pretty cup and saucer and hope you enjoyed your tea!

  35. Your teacup is lovely, Vee! I could use a nice hot cup of tea about now...I think I need to put the computer down and go brew one. Thanks for the power of suggestion! :)

  37. I can't do tea but I've been sucking down the coffee, Vee. I see your are sterilizing your dice AND you found your potatoes-OMG How funny is THAT? Were they in with the games? lol

    Have fun with the kiddos. My daughter is taking the day off tomorrow to stay home with her girls. xo Diana

    I like a nice cup of tea in the afternoon too, especially on these cold days.

  41. Hello Vee, I love Irish Breakfast Tea, as it is full body and has a good punch :) I like to have tea every afternoon, but I will pass on the soup. Looks fishy...
