DoTea and more

Here we go ’round the mulberry bush…

Kudos to Sue on her first post for Dogs on Thursday!   Managing the group’s blog is now a group effort, and Sue was the brave soul who took on that first post.  Thanks, Sue!

My own DoT post is a bit of a tale.  When Mugsy died, I took his name tag and put it on a keyring with Fred’s tag.  I was crushed when I realized it was missing just a few weeks later.  I had no idea when or where I’d lost it, so imagine my surprise when I saw this in the Garden a couple of weeks ago:

How it got there, I don’t know.  I’m calling it a miracle.  The Knight suggested one of the girls found it and dropped it there, which is highly unlikely; of all the things they put in their mouths, metal ain’t one of them.  Someone else suggested a bird, but I’m sticking with my own little miracle.  I called Mugsy “Angel Boy” when he was younger, and I still talk to the boys and ask them to look out for the fur-girls.  To say finding this warmed my heart is an understatement.

So, tea.  This week’s topic is about sources/vendors.  I’ll pick tea up most anywhere.  I prefer loose tea, but tea bags have their place too.  I mentioned my go-to-source on the other blog, but I also order a good little bit from Adagio.   They have a neat custom blend section, and always send a free sample along of something.

I have another FO, so now I’m two reports behind.   In the meantime, here’s Sissy rockin’ her new cowl, which she loves VERY much. 

Gretchen will be in the office this afternoon, so I can take her to the vet for her last batch of puppy shots before tonight’s meeting.   Perhaps some cuteness will happen…

Happy little Friday!

    I order tea from alltea or Harney and Sons. I’ll have to try your place! I love loose tea, but usually make do with bagged tea, because I’m usually in the middle of something. Love Sissy’s cowl. She needs it in January!

    It is wonderful that you have the tag back. Keepsakes are very important.

  9. Sue J. says:

    Tears in my eyes for the boys!! I have no doubt they are looking out for one another and the girls.

  10. Nancy says:

    🙂 so wonderful are these little miracles, reminders those angels are still with us.

  11. Well, that was a jam-packed post! Why not a miracle? Why should it be “explained” away? Dogs like Mugsy ARE their own little miracles, I think.

    Sissy looks very nice in her cowl. I think I’m going to make myself one too 🙂

  13. veedogknitter says:

    I know you’re relieved to find the tag. 🙂 Mugsy or some other guardian angel was definitely looking out for you.

    Sissy looks fab in her new cowl. As cold as it is right now, she needs it! Give both girls some love for me.

  18. Natalie says:

    That is awesome that you found it!!!

  19. Criquette says:

    I’m with you – I believe that your little angel Mugsy somehow made that happen!
