On this coming Monday I will have another Tea Journal post ready to go, late in the afternoon just as the sun sets ... Our next theme will be: O Christmas Tree! And what I'd like to talk about is tree traditions and preferences, and perhaps we can share pictures of our own trees all decorated for the holidays? It could be this year's tree or last year's tree ... or any year's tree, really!
Questions I'll be posing:
Do you prefer live or artificial trees? Cut-your-own or pre-cut?
Are there any special tree-trimming traditions your family follows each year?
What is your favorite ornament?
When do you put it up and when do you take it down?
Colored lights or white lights?
Remember I'd love to see a picture as well, if you're able! You can email me here:

My family will be heading to the tree farm this weekend to cut down our own tree - can't wait to see Little Bear's face! And I hope to make another short nature video to share in my journal as well. Next week our homeschooling seasonal theme is "evergreens" and that ties in nicely with our Advent plans, too.
Also, I will have a little "Nest" assignment for you (and myself!) next week. I was hoping to get to that this week, but my days have been busy and I've had to remind myself to slow down and keep things manageable. Too much mental clutter distracts me from the season's deepest meaning ...
Well, I will wrap up for now because we're heading outside to cut our St. Barbara's Day branches! But I will see you here soon - I have some "Tea with Friends" to share with you this weekend! :)
(Oh, and p.s.! I also have some exciting news about an upcoming planning talk I'll be attending! Stay tuned!)
Happy Weekend, everyone! See you here again very soon ...
