The day has turned somewhat dull, I had thought to go for a walk on the trail today but got busy at home with re-arranging things.
|The dull day|
Since this is my blog, I will post my end rhyming poem!
A Grey November Day
I'm feeling some dismay
it's a grey November day
Howling winds assail my ears
almost bringing me to tears
Flags are flapping to and fro
it makes me shiver just to know
Freezing rain is on the way
oh what pain I feel
The park looks so barren
no flowers, not even Rose of Sharon
Tree branches are bare
only a very few escape the windy air
Squirrels scurry around looking for food
to put away for a long interlude
Humans walk faster through the park
even though it's not yet dark
Standing at my window looking out
it almost makes me pout!
It's a cold November day
so glad I'm not out today.
This poem may give you an indication of what late October/November weather feels like here in Canada.
Now back to more cozy things, I set up my dining room table to take some shots of my tea pot and tea glasses.
For those who have never travelled in the Middle East or parts of Africa, the tea ceremony is a natural part of life. Tea glasses are used, some have handles, some do not.
I brought some back from Turkey and I will post a picture of one of them. I have placed it on one of my crocheted doilies so that it will stand out more.
What a real treat for me to be able to serve my guests in this manner again. Somehow it makes drinking tea so delightful!

I took some shots of the tea pot I brought back from Morrocco which I think is very beautiful.

Have a great day. Thanks for reading my blog.
