a cup of tea

Since that last post, I've been so caught up in counting my blessings I think it's making me sick:) But since we're in thankful mode, it could be worse. I could have the flu and not just a bad cold. And instead of being this Tuesday it could be next Tuesday, the eve of my Kentucky departure. And I could be so sick I'm unable to write, which I'm not. The Lord was so good today in parting the clouds after our weatherman vowed we'd not see the sun till next July (no kidding). I found a hot spot on our deck in which to edit. My granny always said the sun can bake a cold right out of you. And if I take an extra Tylenol I can almost pretend I'm not sick at all. So there, cold bug, begone:)

I never want tea unless I'm sick - ever try Tazo Wild Sweet Orange? It's great! No sugar needed. Put it in one of these lovely teapots and you'll perk right up. This china reminds me of Morrow. I'm just dying to post her book cover. I finally printed it out last week and had it laminated so I don't have to retrieve the e-file every time I want to look at her. Yesterday the blurb for Courting Morrow Little was posted on Amazon (back cover copy) if you want to look. I didn't write it but it's the gist of the novel minus a few dozen threads. I'm not a back cover copy kind of gal. Cramming a 400 page book into a paragraph is not my idea of creative fun. But I appreciate the intrepid editor who did that.

Better get off here before I sneeze! Hope you're happy and healthy today.


  1. I am still trying to kick my cold, too, Laura. It's damp and wet here, which makes it seem extra cold. Ugh!!! Oh well, at least my throat is no longer on fire. That's my bright spot. :) I just visited http://www.bakerpublishinggroup.com and looked up your name - the cover for Morrow is gorgeous! So happy for you!!

  2. I pray you feel better, Laura.
    And yes, Wild Sweet Orange is delicious!

  3. Oh Ruth, bless you, bless you, bless you:) Makes my day! Glad you like it. I sure do.
    Very glad you're feeling some better. Guess we can't blame
    e-germs for our maladies, huh?!
    Thanks so much for letting me know!!

  4. Kristen,
    I so appreciate the well wishes from you, no pun intended:) Thank you! I figured you'd know about Tazo Orange as you're in my neck of the woods. Wishing you a stellar reading/writing week!

  5. Hope you are feeling better soon, Laura. Colds, no fun, and sometimes they can be very flu-like.

    I adore tea. I used to be a coffee drinker but had to give it up. Now, I prefer tea. It took about a year for me to be able to say that and mean it.

  6. I really am dragging, Lori, so thank you for your gracious words. Interesting how coffee turns me off when I'm sick and then I love tea. I can only drink decaf - one cup a day.

    Hope you had a stellar writing/reading day:) Need to hope over to your blog and find out!

  7. Hope you're feeling better soon!

  8. Carla, How funny - or is that ironic? I was just over visiting you at your blog:) Thank you for the get well wishes. I feel better today but my boys are boths sick. At least we'll get this out of the way for Ky. next week. Happy Friday!
