A Spot Of Tea
Saturday, November 05, 2011
It was really foggy this morning. My son had to work the early shift today so I didn't get to sleep in. I made breakfast and lunch for all 3 of us when I first got up. Hubby fed Reek and gave the others a snack and then spot cleaned the pet cages. I did a few chores and my son left for work.
Hubby and I got ready to go to my MIL's. He had to wrestle the air compressor into the back seat of the Mustang and take some tools as we were going to winterize her house. We stopped to get some antifreeze and some gas and we were on our way.
Hubby had a challenging time and it was difficult to get the pipes cleared of water. He emptied the water heater, winterized the toilets and drains, drained the water softener, and drained the hoses to the washer. We were there all day and ran out of time and will have to do the dishwasher, ice maker, and finish the washer later on.
I visited with my MIL's best friend Ruth and she made me some tea. It was the best tea I've ever had and was from her son's shop, The Attic, in Green Bay Wisconsin. It was orange cinnamon spice tea. Orange spice tea is my favorite anyway but this was the best.
My MIL has the most beautiful roses and I cut some buds and brought them home.
We got Blocker out for a while. She was nervous. We gave her a big piece of fruit though and she loved it.
