Dear lovely people ,
how are you doing this weekend , i have been too much behind in finishing my sampler i started along with blessing squares , anyways its better to be late then never.
this square i have finished a while ago , sipping tea with my darling momma.
i love tea , who doesn't .
i like my tea to me moderate in sugar , with a  dash of skimmed milk .
its such a heavenly drink , i am not as such addicted to tea but i do take 2 cups of tea a day.and one solid cup of coffee , i like my tea / coffee in nice tall mugs ..............even if i actually fill them half or even lesser .....
i cant imagine to kick start my day without a cup of tea.

from past few weeks i am experimenting with green tea, it is believed to do good for people with high blood   pressure and heart disease,
 and yesss a rich source of antioxidants too , indirectly ,if taken in moderation it can keep our skin glowing .
what are you favourite teas??




At home , we live in a very friendly and beautiful neighbourhood .
and all our neighbours are aunts and uncles . some of them are like family to us in a way that we share  good and bad both times with love .
its amazing how people form a bond with each other , i guess its the cord of love .
we share meals and special dishes , picles and home grown veggitables with each other.
celebrate festivals together ,
and most of the young men and lad are up and about helping any of the neighboring aunt with a helping hand .
i pray that LOrd bless my neighbours and keep them .

ohhhh girlies ...... i need a cup of tea  {CHAI - as it is called in India } now .
offff to kitchen

have a happy  and blessed weekend
please share what all you like the most about your neighbourhood , thru a comment or a like to your post , i always love to hear from you , you make my day.



  1. Hi,
    Many thanks for visiting my blog today. I like tea a lot and I was lucky enough a few years ago to teach in Jenya for a week and visited a tea plantation. My in-laws like green tea but I find it a bit strong. One to try again in the future maybe.

  2. It must be WONDERFUL lived with your extended family in a neighborhood. No wonder you embroidered it as one of your blessings. Your representation is so sweet...but the, you are awfully sweet yourself :-)

  3. Hi to Rachana, the Tea Drinker :0}

    I always wished I liked tea. Mom used to brew hers, in the summer, on the stove top. The smell, ah, I can still smell it in my memories. And the taste, Y-U-C-K-Y ! ! ! ! I could never stand it . . . and i was the only one in the house who didn't drink it. I preferred lemonade . . which has become my #1 drink of choice now.

    Your squares were great. I have always been blessed to live in a loving neighborhood. Even when I lived in my two apartments, and in the dorms in college, I had neighbors who were good, helpful neighbors. I have been truly blessed . . . and it sounds like you have been blessed also.

  4. I too am not a tea drinker. I like hot chocolate. I don't drink coffee either. I'm weird.

    Your squares a beautiful as always and I love you bear tea mug!

    My neighborhood - my parents are across the street and my uncle is around the corner.

    And my dear - I can not get an email address for you. I changed something on my blog. I hope it helps you to be able to scroll down. My daughter is having the same problem.

    Have a pleasant week - Denise
