Tea at Macha

Tea at Macha on Wednesdays has become something of a ritual for me. I come here to decompress, study and soak up some vitamin D in front of one the many windows. I love the formality yet informality of it all. I spent a semester studying tea and the Japanese tea ceremony last year and the ritual that is intertwined with the practice of tea can be caught in glimpses here. Sometimes the little formalities are nice.

Hurrah!

My camera is back! But I have no pictures to show you, as they called me only moments ago.
In other news, we'll be moving at the end of our lease in February. Goodbye lovely house.
pretty old house, if I could move you to Madison, I would
I shall miss you. But I will not miss the extremely odorous drive into town everyday. (Yes, odorous. We pass many farms with many cows.)

After an incident with Evelyn this week where she painted my bedspread with red nail polish (when she was supposed to be in bed, NAUGHTY!), I've been thinking about starting a project over winter break to make a quilt instead of purchasing another one. I found a pattern that I like. It's a simple wheel pattern in color on a white background.
