I Have a Tea Party

A Tea Party

A Tea Party

I have my own tea party with a little brown porcelain pot filled with tea, and fancy cookies. Then I sit in a quiet spot and read one of my comfort books. There are some books I've read over and over because they make me feel good: 'Jane Eyre', 'Pride and Prejudice', 'The Count of Monte Cristo', etc. I find books comforting. I read new ones too, but the ones I used to go hide away in the woods near where I grew up and read are the ones that I have to have at times to make me feel better.
