Afternoon Tea

Sometimes I feel like there is nothing more perfect in the world than a wonderful cup of hot tea. Admittedly I’m a bit of a tea snob. My favorites come from a tea shop in England, although fortunately the Fresh Market down the street carries a few selections so I don’t have to spend an arm and a leg on shipping!

 favorite cup for tea!

It finally feels like fall this morning. Not only is it starting to look like fall with the leaves changing colors, but this morning’s 8 mile run was actually, wait for it, cold! I got home and could barely move my fingers :-). I loved every minute of my run this morning, despite the drivers on Peachtree that just can’t seem to yield to people in cross walks. And after a wonderful haircut I feel ready to tackle the day. That is after my tea is done steeping. Because practicing the violin on a clear, crisp day with a hot cup of tea just hits the spot! Oh, and Lucy dog curled up at my feet is pretty nice too :-). It just seems like the perfect day!

new haircut. No FRIZZ!!

Happy Friday!

Who wants a cupcake?

It was a crazy weekend, and it’s carried over to the week. Needless to say I feel behind all ready, which means I don’t have the fabulous blog post ready that I want. This is part of the reason:

leading the students in a little halloween concert. Like my hat?
all of the leftovers. Dear parents, what you don’t take home gets given out during the week. They’ll get the sugar one way or another (there are at least 2 dozen cupcakes left over, down from at least 6 dozen that walked through the door!)
At least I have a pretty view for this insane week! And I think there’s only 1 stink bug left!!

A change of weather


As you can see the violin was not happy when I opened the case this morning =(. Poor violin. It just doesn’t like any changes as far as the weather goes, which is a shame because the weather is changing. I can’t tell you how many violins I’ve had to tune so far this week. It’s crazy!

This morning I went for a run and it was actually cold! I kid you not. It was 49 degrees when I got back from my 8 mile run. I couldn’t move my hands! I haven’t warmed up much since, but then my room always seems to be cold, so hopefully I’ll feel warmer once I get outside and go to work. I still haven’t quite figured out what to wear when I’m running in this cooler weather. It’s not cool enough for pants and not warm enough for sleeveless shirts. So, I’ve been wandering the great Internet looking at fall/winter running gear and mentally spending my paycheck before I even get it later today. Shopping is just too easy =).
