No! Thanks, anyway. I'll fix my own!

I'm a tiny bit eccentric.......
just a little hard-to-please.......


It might be evident most when
I'm fixing my cup-of-teas

I let it steep for just so long
then give the teabag a squeeze

I've cut down on my sugar now
so a scant half-teaspoon's good

Then slowly pour some whole milk in --
I'd use skim milk if I could --

Memories of my childhood days
bring visions of milk blue-white

Made from surplus dry milk beads
till Mom thought it was just right
- NOT ME! -

Getting back to my cup-of-teas
I gently stir with my spoon

Pause to see if the color's right
humming a teatime tune

Did I mention the water temp?
To a boil, but please, no more

Don't want to boil the flavor out
before the first cup I pour

Now check the color once again
then add 2 dribbles of milk

Sip a li'l sample from my spoon
Ah, my tea is smooth as silk

"Open your mouth and taste,
open your eyes and see --
how good God is.
Blessed are you who run to Him.
Psalm 34:8 (The Message)I

I've been accused of being too "picky" and particular about "things" and procedures. You've made me feel better, Connie. Thank you. Love and best wishes,

This delightful write made me smile, Connie!
Mother made me drink warm tea when I was ill,
so I'm not too fond of it. :(
Would rather have a nice hot cuppa chocolate!

Very warm and endearing write, Connie! I enjoyed this tea-break immensely...I enjoy apple-cinnamon spice tea in the autumn and winter sugar, at all!

God bless, Rhonda
