I could not think of a clever blog post title to use for this....I use Haven Heartbeats over at my other blog....which is my catch-all for saying: I am just sharing random thoughts today.
These crossed my mind:
I like mildly clever.....so these are not working for me.
A Time for Tea at TUAR?
Tea for TUAR?
TUAR For Tea?
At the Tea Table?
At the TUAR Tea Table?
In Our Living Room?
I have not actually brainstormed this with Willa yet. From the looks above...I probably should! : )
Perhaps you could share some clever idea?
Anyway......I do not have much time....so I will just go ahead and get this rambling started......
Now that my college students are home for Christmas break, we are heading over to the Northern California coast to visit with my 90-year-old grandmother. We have not seen her in a good while. We leave tomorrow morning. We have been driving these four hours approximately once a year for over two decades, dragging all of my kids to see their great-grandmother. Since we have been there so often, we have our favorite haunts. Most of them are nature-related, like the ocean and the Redwoods or book-related, like our favorite used bookstore. We enjoy comparing our favorite places against other visits in different months. This will be the first time we have gone in December. It will be fun to visit the Victorian Old Towne decorated for Christmas. We can also do a bit of Christmas shopping, too. I am sure to share, at least photos, on a daily basis, depending on my Internet availability. Have you been to the Redwoods??? I know it has been an immense blessing to us to have them practically in our backyard.
We just found out today that we happily are expecting company for the week after Christmas: a friend of my son's from college. She is a kindred spirit and my girls are thrilled to have another sister for a week. She loves to read, too, and she recommends interesting books.
And, my dear sister-in-law who was married this last summer is coming to visit a day after we return from the coast, bringing her groom, already a much beloved uncle. They will be traveling from Las Vegas. They are planning this trip before they make a move to Texas.
Ever since Willa & I have started this blog.......there have been mini- and major crises for us to deal with........poor health.....company.....more work hours......and traveling, that has made it a bit harder to post on TUAR than we expected. Please bear with us as we navigate our way to the keyboard for posting. We have so many thought to share.......just looking for that time and energy.
I had more to say.......but I need to finish up some more packing before I head to bed........I will write from the coast tomorrow, if I can. I can hear Anne and Diana in the background noise........I think Diana is a wee bit drunk.....if you know what I mean. ; ) Better go bring an intermission to the kids for prayers around the Advent Wreath.
