Jane Austen Quote

 

“What dreadful hot weather we have!
It keeps me in a continual state of inelegance.”

~Jane Austen

We’re having a heat wave and I’m glad my condo is air conditioned. I’m heading to Huntington Beach tomorrow for a family cooking event. What a day to cook but it can’t be helped. We’re making Russian Pelemeny for a family function coming up…

Photobucket is holding all my photos I stored with them from 2007-2015 hostage. They have blacked out all those photos on my blog posts. OH BOTHER! I’m slowly cleaning up my posts.

WFW ~ I Corinthians 13:12

I Corinthians 13:12 ~ “For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.”

I try to choose a verse for Word Filled Wednesday that is from the Book of the Bible that I am currently reading. I just finished 2 Corinthians and I am now reading 1 Corinthians. A little out of order but I’m on a journey of reading each book of the Bible 20 times before moving on to the next and not in order. It’s been a good method for me because it helps me retain a lot more than just reading a passage and then moving on…

WFW ~ 2 Corinthians 5:17-19 ~ Reconciliation

Reconciliation
By Margaret Adams Parker

2 Corinthians 5:17-19 (NIV) ~

“Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliaton.”

2 Corinthians 13:11(ESV) ~ “Finally, brothers, rejoice, Aim for restoration, comfort one another, agree with one another, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you.”

Set The Tea Table ~ Bavarian Dishes

Some of you know already that I’m living in a small condo in Southern California right now and my regular home with my kids and my stuff is in the Seattle Area of Washington. Most of my tea goodies and entertaining goodies are in Washington. I didn’t have any tea-cups and saucers in California until today! Look at the bargain I found at a thrift store in our little downtown today.

 

6 cups and saucers, 6 dessert plates, 5 salad plates, and a creamer. It’s Bavarian H & Co. china. Now here’s the real exciting thing, I got all of this for $15.00!! Now I’m going to be able to have a fun tea here in California with the goodies I found today and with what I can add from the condo stash. Here’s my mock tea table without food.

 

 

 

The inside of the tea-cups are iridescent.

 

“Take some more tea,” the March Hare said to Alice, very earnestly. “I’ve had nothing yet,” Alice replied in an offended tone: “so I can’t take more.” “You mean you can’t take less,” said the Hatter: “it’s very easy to take more than nothing.” ~ Lewis Carroll ~ Alice In Wonderland

Oh and the store threw this Bavarian bowl in for nothing!

My sister Lana from Above the Clouds took my photo and used a couple of the programs she has and really beautified this further. I’m going to have to sit down with her and take some lessons…

“American-style iced tea is the perfect drink for a hot, sunny day. It’s never really caught on in the UK, probably because the last time we had a hot, sunny day was back in 1957.”
