Short and Sweet

Hello my friends, welcome to tea this week.  I'm linking with Sandi from Rose Chintz Cottage for Tea Time Tuesday, Pam at A Breath of Fresh Air for Teapot and Tea Things Tuesday and Kathy at A Delightsome Life for A Return to Loveliness.
As I sit with a mug of green tea in this pretty Portmeiron pattern, I'm remembering the beautiful sunset over the frozen waters of Lake Simcoe I saw on the weekend.  I looked out the window of the dining room where I was having dinner and  ran out into the cold with the point and shoot camera I carry in my purse.  Definitely one of life's delights.

My dessert arrived when I got back and I'm also remembering how good this cheesecake was.
Short and sweet this week from me, I do hope you'll visit my gracious hosts.


  1. A beautiful mug and a beautiful site to see. Have a nice day.

  2. A beautiful lake scene indeed and cheesecake looking wonderful!

  3. This may be short and sweet, but it is perfect. Lovely mug, gorgeous sunset on the lake and very sweet ending! Great post. Blessings. BTW for a point and shoot, you have a wonderful little camera. Isn't technology great?

  4. I guess running out into the cold to take that gorgeous sunset picture was worth it when you returned to find that yummy dessert waiting for you! :-) Have a great week! Pamela

  5. Wow, what a gorgeous scene you captured!

    Nothing like a warm soothing cup of tea and a nice slice of cheesecake to go with it...YUM!

  15. Hi there...thanks for coming over to say hello & the sweet comment about my tea cup. I love visiting your blog and seeing what you share....there really isn't much more in life that is more beautiful, dessert, warm drink in hand & a pretty scene of nature!

    Wishing you a lovely day,

  18. Judith, That's a beautiful sunset, fabulous looking cheesecake and a pretty cup! I wanted to let you know that I absolutely love the Bourbon Street Vanilla Rooibos, and I drank all that you gave me and ordered more. Thanks for introducing me to it.
    Think Spring, my friend,

  19. Hi Judith! Oh, what a lovely sight to behold - peaceful and calming and sipping tea. Can't get much better. Oh, and to top it off - cheesecake! :)
    Thanks so much for popping in to see me.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  20. Such a lovely post, Judith! I'm so glad I found your page through Zuzu's...I absolutely love afternoon tea, having grown up in Northern Ireland where drinking cooled tea from a saucer begins at a very young age!

    If you don't mind, I will have a good look around, and check out these memes, too. Last week, I posted a piece about taking tea in a Kenyan might find it amusing...definitely a different tea time!

    It's cold, gray and wet here in Vancouver...hope you're having a better day in Ontario...:)
