Fine China Teacup

Not much to report for today...the water went off around 9:30 this morning and didn't come back until noon. The the water was brown for a couple of hours after that so I didn't even want to make a cup of tea. I went over to my friend J's house - she's lucky enough to have a water cooler so I was able to have a cuppa over there. The only thing I made today was a salad with homemade poppyseed dressing.

So hubby is transforming a bike that I bought for $4 from a yard sale so it will be usable. Today he put new tires on the bike and he says that he'll try and find some new brakes.

So I've decided now to use my wedding china for tea now. I really, really love the china I got for my wedding: Sheraton Blue by Aynsley. But you know what? I've been married for 11 years now and the stickers are still stuck to the bottom! I've only used them about 3 times in 11 years. My mother always siad that tea tastes better in a china teacup and you know what? She was right. What is it about drinking tea out of a fine china cup? I feel so elegant and not so much of a suburban housewife, a proper lady (imagine!). Anyway, I now am thrilled that I've gotten over the "just for special occasions" rule for fine china. I feel like I'm living it up in my suburban kitchen - I know, such a small thing to get excited over but that's my life now.
