Tea Time!

I was talking with a friend today about one of my favorite things--tea!  :)  She was telling me about the Tazo tea she was enjoying for the day (Darjeeling), and I was telling her about some of my favorite teas and sweets to go along with my cup of tea.  My favorite is probably Earl Grey, but most hot tea flavors are good.  :)  Of course, teas are broken down into three main categories--black teas, green teas, and herbal teas.  So you can pick which group you prefer, and then select a favorite tea from the bunch.  Earl Grey is a black tea, yet Darjeeling belongs to several of the tea categories. 

What types of tea do you enjoy?  What sweet treats do you like to add to your cup of tea?

"Cambric tea was hot water and milk, with only a taste of tea in it, but little girls felt grown-up when their mothers let them drink cambric tea."

Back to our original programming...

First off, I want to apologize for not having my regularly scheduled blog up this past Saturday.  I was out of town that day, and I just completely forgot to post my blog for the day.  No worries though—my regular blog posts will resume this week.   

Secondly, my friend Natalie, at Sweet South Blog, tagged me to answer this questionnaire.  I loved her answers, so if you haven’t read her blog, please go and read her answers.  Natalie, my book collection looks like that
too.  :)  Brilliant!   

So here goes with my answers to the following questions!  


Have you talked to anyone in person about a book this week?  I actually have.  I seem to talk to people about books every week.  :) 

What book was it?  It was actually several different books.  A new mystery series that I discovered—I was asking someone’s opinion about it. 

What are the two biggest emotional reactions you've gotten from a book or movie this year?  Surprise is probably the best answer.  That feeling you get when a character does something out of the ordinary—an event that you did not see coming.  All of the twists and turns within the plot of a novel, that tend to drive you crazy at times, always seem to make the book more interesting somehow. 

What are you reading right now?  Ok, so I know it is not Christmas, but I have been reading from a collection of short stories that are in the book An Old Fashioned Christmas. 

How many books have you read this year?  I would say nine or ten.

What was the last flower mentioned in a book you read?  Oh goodness, that is a hard question, but I remember tulips being mentioned in a particular scene. 

If you could choose to travel to the setting of one of the last three books you read, which would you choose?  Well, one of the last books I read took place in England.  So, I think I would travel there.  :)

If you could choose three living authors, to follow around for a day, who would you choose?  Janette Oke, Lawana Blackwell, and Laura Childs  

What about deceased authors?  Jane Austen, C.S. Lewis, and Charles Dickens
If you could read only one fiction book for the rest of your life, which would you choose?  Pride and Prejudice
