Ducking in to say hello! Hope this March is treating you well, no matter if you have sun or snow! I know friends out east are getting lots of snow and some ice right now. And all the way down here on the plains, its sunny and warm. It’s probably too much to ask that it stay that way though, Oklahoma weather is notoriously fickle.
Here though, the baby is consuming most of my days– he demands cuddles and being held and I’m not getting that much done, on any level, but I know that this will pass. And I’m trying to enjoy being his favorite person ever, all the time. He’s a sweet boy, he just doesn’t want to be put down!
To cheer ourselves in this last very brown part of winter– or is it spring yet— we’re starting to get a few flowers around the house! I planted this pot with lavender a few days ago and I love it. It sits in front of the big dining room windows soaking up the light and reminds me that even though it is brown and rather ugly outside— a beautiful season is coming
Monday was also Audrey’s birthday and of course she got flowers. She is now seven, and such a big kid! One of the best readers in her class and loves math. She definitely didn’t get that math love from her ol’ mama!
And although I’m not getting much accomplished, I am making a few pots of tea a day, as now I’m on a total mint tea kick. I love it best in a fancy cup with sugar cubes. Because even when you’re covered in spit-up, nursing, or just trying to stop baby frets, a nice cup of tea can make things seem a little more special. And know what? This will horrify my English friends I bet— when the pot goes cold I just ice the tea and drink it that way, southern girl style. Makes the pot stretch, any way! haha! I also found a Harney and Sons ‘chocolate mint’ tea at Target and it made me very happy, the tea tin was even red! (my favorite!) Tea tins make me feel fancy too. Hey, I’m still in my bath robe, my hair is a mess, I’ll take fancy where I can get it.
Well, as you may have guessed, a baby is calling to me (and he’s not patient) I’ll go for now, but be back soon!~!

Your flowers are lovely and that tea sounds perfect for calming frayed nerves! Hope little Robbie settles soon!
Heehee you know this thrifty gal loves that you save a pot of tea by icing it! I need to find that chocolate mint tea- surely that's not cheating? 😉 x
I love Harney & Sons tea and I'm so glad to know you found it at Target! Your flowers are pretty and I know those kiddos are sweet, if time-consuming! – nancyo

Chocolate mint tea! I may have to try that! I love trying fancy teas but ultimately fall back on plain old Lipton.
