If We Are Having Coffee

Well Deborah this is peaceful sitting here under the pergola with our coffee (well unusually it is but today it is tea. )

How strange I have to come here to Tuscany to relax enough to drop the poetry and talk.
Hey Bear come and join us too do you take milk … one lump or two. (quick slap on the wrist no hiding behind verse.) Right where shall we start. We have all joined the Grandma club, me being the newest member.
Do you know I was delighted to find out that the wonderful owner of this little heaven’s equally wonderful niece is expecting her first baby, she had only just got married on our first visit here just a month after our youngest son’s wedding.Β  3yrs ago
Yes that is a coincidence, you both know about being grandmas so I best not try to teach you to suck eggs!

It is so hard to explain how relaxed and happy this place makes me feel it is beyond compare. I am not the stressed worried woman trying to be all things to all people that I am at home.

How about you two where do you like to holiday, is it the place or the people or a combination of both that makes a holiday special for you.
Do you know I would love for us all to meet up for coffee everyone I have learned to know here on wordpress. … Dreams.
Now Deborah at Β http://myriad234.wordpress.com/
gave me this idea and I think it is a wonderful idea you can all join in and enjoy a coffee or tea break, anywhere any place anytime. So how about it .

    Oh, Willow! It’s so lovely having tea with you. And I’m so glad you invited Bear. I think the three of us have so much to share with each other. Congrats on joining the grandmother club. I hope you have a chance to spend time with the little one. That is probably my one regret about being in Taiwan. I have to watch the little one (not so little anymore) grow up on Facebook. Luckily, my daughter is great about posting photos and about chatting with me. I look forward to when I can actually see him in person again.
    And you’re so right about a good holiday. Nothing like it to restore our balance and remind us about what’s important. The one thing I’ve discovered is that it’s impossible to be everything to everyone, so I gave up trying. The interesting thing is that most people don’t really notice. They’re so wrapped up in their own lives. Besides, no matter of effort on our part will make others happy anyway. We each have to find our own path to happiness.
    That said, I love to go anywhere that lets me experience something new. The last place I went was a little community in the mountains around Taipei, where tea is grown. We didn’t have as much time there that day as I would have liked, as the planner had other things for us that day as well. However, we decided to go back when we can tour some of the tea farms and try different teas in a leisurely fashion. I think you would enjoy it. πŸ™‚
    I’ve so enjoyed our tea today. We’ll have to do it again sometime. πŸ™‚

      Hi Deborah I have written this reply three times and it been lost so I hope you get this one.
      It was so lovely to spend a peaceful half hour with you and Bear. Getting your reply has made me feel that we resolved the miles between us. Three of us all continents apart, Asia, America and Europe. I wanted to mention all our virtual friends but that would of obscured the point of the tea together.
      Hopefully you will be able to live nearer your daughter’s family, lucky as you are nothing beats the physical presence of loved ones. No doubt you will spoil your beautiful grandson. Well who wouldn’t πŸ˜€
      As I have said holidays are so important even a short break recharges the batteries. We all need that. I hope Bear enjoyed the tea together as much as we did I felt close to you both for that half hour.
      Finger’s crossed this reply gets off I dare not even check it so please forgive any mistakes. Be blessed Deborah and be happy. ❀ xxx

        ick, lipton is the worst tea ever. My grandmother used to give it to me when I was sick, and to this day just the smell of it makes my stomach churn. Do you ever see Harney and Son teas in your area?

        No I have never heard of it. Funny you should say you associate Lipton’s tea with being unwell, the owner here says the same.

    It’s interesting to me that we have to go away from ourselves to relax.
