Welcome! Grab a cup of tea, and enjoy browsing some of the photos and stories. As the 'teawife,' it is my duty to watch and listen and be a supportive friend, and a loving mum and wife. I should post more often, but sticking my nose into everyone's business keeps me busy! Kathy the teawife

Sunset on the golf course

A couple of evenings ago, I got a call from our neighbor that there was a family of elk lounging in the Mariana Butte Golf Course. Lately, I had been so inundated with moving boxes, unpacking, and finding cubby holes for all our stuff that I had not done much walking or found my camera to take photos. I thought that grabbing the camera and having a wee walk in the neighborhood would be some much needed therapy. As I was walking toward the elk family, I also caught some amazing cloud play with the sunset. I think I need to get out more often!

Bettys of Yorkshire

Autumn has always been my favorite time of the year. I know that my friends in the United Kingdom are probably lamenting the near-future passing of long summer days, but I get giddy when the first cool breezes blow in. I suppose this comes from growing up in Texas, where the summers drag on and on, and we all eagerly await the first Nor'easter.

I have no idea how I will feel about all the seasonal changes now that I am in Colorado! We are much closer to those cold fronts that blow out of Canada, don't cha know! This will be the first autumn that I am at my new home in Loveland, CO.

Today, I received an email from Bettys, a Yorkshire-based tea-cake-biscuit-sweet-pudding purveyor, in operation since 1919. I love some of the Taylors of Harrogate teas that you can buy at Bettys. If you happen to be in the Yorkshire area, you can have an afternoon tea at Bettys. The photo above, of this scrumptious autumn spread, just makes me want to be in Yorkshire, right this minute, having tea.
