Picnics are the beeeest! This year I'm really trying to embrace spending more time outside in the fresh air instead of being stuck inside. There is almost nowhere quite as lovely or inspiring as God's creation. Reading there is a delight!
With this in mind, an idea was formed. I decided to have my tea outside! I took my tea, reading and quilt out to my favorite reading tree. But what quilt would be complete without lovely companions?! Thus ensued a marvelous afternoon with my sisters!
So here you are- our tea picnic!
Annaliese read a short passage to us from (get ready for this name)
"The Rhetorical Manual or Southern Fifth Reader: Embracing Copious and Elegant Extracts both in Prose and Poetry. With A Treatise on Rhetorical Figures, and the Principles of Elocution." From 1853.
Needless to say -it was hilarious!
Meringues Eleanna made- yummy!
Little Bit stopping by for a visit. :)
I started reading the manuscript for one of Annaliese's books- it's sooo good!
This is what we had to do to keep the flies away from our delicious tea. haha
All in all,
a lovely and entertaining afternoon!
