A Hectic Life, a Cup of Tea

Thursday, May 7th, 2009


I made myself a crazy schedule without realizing it… I am teaching a large handful of new knitting classes this term. That means I have to write handouts, pull together examples for students to see, and get ready to present new material. I’ve had a new class each week. It’s exciting but leaves little time for optional activities.

The good part is that even though we are in the warmer part of the year, people keep signing up to learn. Local teaching is my primary business, and without students I have a rough time in warm weather. I’ve been very grateful.

Right now I’m preparing for a long day. I’ll probably be gone from noon to about 9pm. But right now I’m checking email and having a very fine cup of English Breakfast tea. It’s a good way to start the day.

I took this photo at Momma Bear’s Cafe on Turner Street in Old Town, Lansing, Michigan. I was having lunch with friend Cynthia several weeks back and my camera was on the table. I noticed this photo in its viewfinder and pressed the button without picking up the camera or otherwise manipulating it.

I like taking photos of restaurant tables like this. I like how the pot on the right is in focus and the background is blurry. You don’t see that much with digital photography.

I hope you have a good day. Even if it is busy, may you have a small pleasure such as a cup of tea to help it along.
