Cozy Tea Season Arriving

Like seasonal fashion change following leave foliage colors, my tea selection also shifts from herbal, green and jasmine teas to an array of seasoned bronze-colored and full-bodied oolong teas. Likewise, the glass teapots will be replaced by pottery ones at my tea corner. Time to enjoy fall's beauty and ambiance with our favorite tea and friends!

Book club: one of my source of happiness

The late summer evenings are ideal time to relax with tea and music. Stretching comfortably on sofa near an open window, the gentle summer breeze and warm lamp light create quite a cozy setting for book reading. One great source of happiness for me is to read books assigned by my book club. It opens a scope of interesting subjects which I would not approach on my own initiative. At the monthly meet, each person presents viewpoint drawn from his/her own life experience. In less than two hours, I get to travel across time and space (along with my own imagination) in group idea exchanges. Happiness indeed!
