I’ve finally been able to figure out my lightroom and camera problem, so now I can start sharing some of what has been happening lately, travel, food and projects.
The mist have been low on the horizon these last few days, and I’ve been in need of snuggling up inside, working form mon studio and sipping to warm tea, particularly rosemary tea freshly picked form the garden.
Early each morning I’ve wrapped myself in a warm blanket and made my way out in the garden to snip of a little rosemary branch or two.
Inside the rich aroma has spread across the kitchen and filled the room with delightful rosemary scent.
Did you know that Rosemary, among other things, is a natural anti-depressant?
Now, this cup does not promise world problems to disappear in a blink of an eye, but the heavy and sometimes darker clouds lift a little, and that can sometimes be enough to see life in a bit brighter perspective, non?
One blue days, or dark fall/winter evenings a cup of warm rosemary tea with raspberry honey sure does the trick of a little pick me upper;)
You can use any type of honey or sugar of course, but I used a raspberry honey from a local farm that is so light, sweet and berry infused that just that makes me happy.
The blue and white tea-set is my new favorite.
When I was 17 and lived in Tokyo I was invited along to shop at Chinapete’s.
I went nuts, and bought plates, bowls and cups in the japanese blue and white china tradition.
Just these past months I opened the boxes I had shipped from Japan after my stay.
There they were, my beautiful tea-set, that I now cannot live without.
The blue make my blue days less blue;)
I sit and sip by the kitchen window before starting a new day, and with a grateful heart I count my blessings and hope to let go of sorrow that can fog up the heart.
