Simple Fall Tea And Update

Hello my bloggy friends! A simple teatime in the sunroom today...a bit late, but...

My husband's surgery was Thursday, and I brought him home on Friday. He is recovering, and I have to remind him recovery after surgery and anaethetic takes some time. I feel at the moment like the family pest...time for your...meds, walk,  food, vitamins etc....

This is what we have had the last week...found this little pumpkin in the grocery store yesterday...we have even had our first snow night before last on the Olympic Mountains behind us of Olympic National Park...

So with that in mind, I also picked up some of my favorite fall Pumpkin Spice tea from Republic of Tea. Someone recently posted they had found a Pumpkin Ginger by Republic Of Tea as well, but I haven't seen that variety yet, but will be looking forward. Ginger is the best for nausea, and my Honey has that a bit both with Parkinson's Disease medications from time to time but also post anaesthesia at the moment.

Brown transferware is just fall to me...

My neighbors brought us over a few delicious bran muffins..packed with nuts, raisins and orange juice for a welcome home. So sweet!

A perfect with the Pumpkin Spice tea, too!
I put this one on an orphan Shelley China art deco saucer with dote in an unamed pattern from the 1930-1940s...

Love the unusual color...so deco!

Our really big news, as our daughter, son in law, their oldest son and his wife...our oldest grandson... arrived the 11th for 2 weeks of looking for property to move here from Utah...so excited!

Our daughter and son in law....

And our grandson and his wife...
They are looking for a property to share...
These photos were from a day tip they took to nearby North Cascades National Park...it is really beautiful there too!
Our son in law says he wants to be here by Christmas, but...we'll see...

So that's what's happening here in our neck of the woods. I hope everyone on the east coast is safe...I have been praying for the storm victims. Horrible!

Tuesday Cuppa Tea may be up by next week, depending on how the doctor's follow up on Friday goes, and what the family is doing. They fly back to Utah on Monday.
Thanks again for all of your wonderful messages, comments and emails here and on Facebook. It has been a blessing to us.
Thank you!
