Tea Time ~ 1/24/2024

Grab a cup of tea, coffee, hot chocolate or your favorite drink
while I share a few things about my life lately...


~I've been thinking about my blogging schedule and how I'm going to fit everything in once I start back to working full-time.  I'm going to try to post at least 3 blog posts a week as long as time allows.  The plan is to post on Monday, Wednesday and Friday with maybe a random post here and there.  Monday will be the Happy Homemaker; Wednesday will be Tea Time; and Friday will by My Weekly Bookishness.

~I finished reading a fiction book!  (You can read my review of "Keegan" HERE ) I haven't read fiction for fun in well over a year so I'm really excited about this accomplishment.  I really LOVE reading but it seems to go on the back burner.  I also really love getting new books.  Lately they are in the form of ebooks though I do love a good paperback :)  I love that I can download free books onto my Kindle.  Come back Friday to see what I've downloaded this week!

~The hubby decided that he NEEDS to feed the birds!  We made a trip to Tractor Supply and 40 lbs of birdseed later, the hubby is happily watching out the window to see what birds stop by.  The hubby is not the only one watching the birds though!  Flynn spent the whole day sitting atop his window perch content to watch the birds come and go :)

~Laken's boyfriend, Nate, and his family invited her to go snowtubing with them Sunday afternoon at Whitetail in WV.  We knew it was only going to be a high of 23F on Sunday and asked Laken to try on her snow gear as we hadn't gone snowtubing in a few years.  After trying on what she had, Laken declared nothing would suit.  So, we spent Saturday evening at Dunham's.  After trying on approximately 10 different snow pants/bibs (no exaggeration) a pair of snow pants, snow gloves and Carhart hat were purchased.  Even though it was cold, they had a great time and now want to go snowboarding!

~With the recent single-digit temperatures, I was surprised to see the forecast for this coming Friday.  55F on January 26th in Pennsylvania!  I can't wait!  You better believe I'm going to be soaking it in :)

So, what is new with you???

  1. Back when I was working I wrote all my posts over the weekend and scheduled them, it worked for me. I'll bet the snowtubing was fun! Sadly, I don't read many books these days, my eyes will close and I'll nod off to sleep. Maybe I need to pick more exciting books! Thanks for joining Angel Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  2. My mother used to love to feed the birds. She had two feeders in the back yard and had to refill them constantly.

  3. We started feeding the birds last spring. We love watching them all come to the feeder. This spring I am hoping to add a hummingbird feeder. Maybe your hubby will want one, too.
    Book reading is high on my list, too. Currently, I'm rereading all the Bodie Thoene books about Jerusalem/Zion. Then I will dive in to the six books my daughter-in-law sent me for Christmas!
    The right gear for being outside is essential. I'm glad Laken had the new gear and had a good time.
    Enjoy your week!
