Easter Sunday Tea Time and Stitching

It’s been awhile since I posted about my tea. Simply because I have been lazy to take pictures and to post my updates about the Derby Cross Stitch.

It’s been an active morning. I walked my dog, got back home and planted the new roses I bought recently from Jackson and Perkins.

Here are the roses I planted in my courtyard garden:

Honey Bee Lovely

Tupelo Honey Floribunda Rose

Afterwards I took pictures of yoga poses as an assignment to get my yoga instructor certification. Did some Zumba cardio workout as well. I really needed to release all those negative toxins!

Then I took my dog for another walk this time a longer walk.

Ate lunch. Gave my dog a treat. And decided it was Tea Time. My dog is now sleeping!

I brewed the flower blooming tea. I selected a green tea for today.

And now my legs are on the ottoman, a blanket is draped around me and this tea is smooth and a hot satisfying delight to enjoy watching some movies this afternoon while stitching.

DERBY CROSS STITCH

Here is the progress on Derby cross stitch

I thought the blue shades were done when the first row was finished. How wrong I was! At least it isn’t majority of the second row. I am ready to see more colors on this cross stitch.

And my evening hot tea was stress relief Honey Lavender by Yogi.

I should be able to stitch more this week. My schedule to see clients is not filled like weeks prior. It is interesting how there is a need for mental health counseling at this moment because of the virus. My thought is that no one wants to pay their copay or deductible to have sessions, and is putting it off until they know there job is secured after we resume our life and get back to our normal way of living and working. I believe this is the calm before the storm for me.

So it will be Happy Stitching for awhile.
