Cloudy with a chance of divorce.

Sorry for my absence from the blog, but my life has been turned upside down. I try to keep my little September Tea upbeat, but lately I can't seem to find much of anything positive to post. I am officially divorced today after 23 years of marriage. It was me who asked for the divorce, but only after exhausting  fruitless time and energy to make it work. I believe we will remain friends, mostly because of the children. It is time to move on and I am ready for whatever the next phase of life holds for me. And actually, I'm rather excited about this next phase, not really sure what it'll bring, but I have some ideas and it's gonna be great!
So with that bit of personal news, I'm regaining some perspective, getting back to blogging and hoping to catch some Christmas spirit.  xo

Holiday cards.

I was stressing about my holiday cards and the fact that I haven't made anything yet. But while I was searching for ideas I came across a whole stash of cards, some my own design, some store bought. I think I have plenty! Sigh-of-relief....one less thing on my to-do list! Now comes all the signing and addressing. I think I'll put the Pandora holiday station on, make a cup of hot chocolate and get started.  xo

Book club.

Our book club met on Monday night for a holiday gathering and all but two of the 14 of us were able to make it. What a lovely evening as we shared book recommendations, really good food and Luanne's special pomegranate cocktails! But the best part of the evening was sitting by the fire and taking turns reading aloud from Truman Capote's "A Christmas Memory." I'm grateful for these friends and the wonderful memory!

Garlic Parmesan Knots.

My sister made these delicious rolls for Thanksgiving dinner. They were so good!
I'm going to try them next time I have a crowd over.
She found the recipe at PictureTheRecipe.com. Here's the link.

Here is my puzzle for the holidays! I found it at the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth and had to figure out how to get it home in my carry-on (no checked bags)....
helps to have a really big purse. 
I love Modigliani and I love puzzles!

Lazy Saturday morning.

My to-do list is a mile long and I'm avoiding all of it at the moment.
Or let's say I'm getting inspiration for all I need to do!

Emma Bridgewater mug from my friend, Bonnie, who knows me very well.
"Happiness is a cup of tea & a new magazine."

Happy December 1st!
