Out for tea

Today I actually went out and had tea!  Very unusual for me.  The quilting group, including me, went on a quilt shop trip to Bendigo, an old gold mining town.  We did lots of shopping which I forgot to photograph, and had a lovely lunch, which I forgot to photograph, but I did remember whilst I was drinking my cup of tea (english breakfast)
Of course, now I am beat after all that shopping and eating and driving!
but here is my cup of tea
We sat outside under a verandah, as it was quite hot, but there was a nice breeze outside - and no that is not a bottle of beer on the table, it is an old vintage beer bottle they used as a water carafe!
Off to bed now.

  1. Going to lunch (with tea) an shopping with friends is my favorite way to spend the day. Don't get to do it often but always enjoy it when I do. Sounds like you had a nice time.

  2. Sounds like you had a busy, but fun day with friends! Quilt fabric is overwhelming to me these days with all the choices but from a color standpoint, I am in heaven in a fabric store!

  5. I can't believe you were drinking HOT tea with the weather so hot there. But I still enjoyed the photo of the table and TEA. Looks like you drink it like I do much of the time.

    I've had to stay away from fabric stores lately. I have a tendency to buy THREAD, and of course, use it to sew paper to paper. I'm glad you had a good time, though.

    Thanks for sharing your outing with us this T day.
