My brother came over for some coffee and a chat. As I don't drink coffee, I bought this bag of it. We just casually talked about our, or mostly his, past. I knew highlights of his history, but not really how he got from here to there. Or there to here. It was a good talk and at the end he said we should do this once a week! I did not bring up my issue about the houses nor even ask him what he planned to do with two houses. He talks about all the fixing up he is doing in the old farmhouse, making a bedroom into a den and wanting a wall of bookcases to shelve all his books. Yet I know he wants to live here in Mom's house. So, will he live in two houses?? I have not approached this topic yet as I am not sure I can talk about it without losing my cool. Meanwhile, we will continue to chat and find out who the other is.
Blue Sky Dreaming posted her tea mug today and offered the challenge to us readers of posting their mugs. This originated at another blog but I couldnt access that blog so I'm sending you to Blue Sky. By coincidence I had planned to post this mug for this post.
It is made by a local potter. I have two. I use it almost every day. I drink green tea, kukicha tea and white tea. Occasionally I drink black tea with a spot of milk in it. Very occasionally I drink peppermint tea.
