1. English Breakfast Tea. Nothing like starting the day with a cup of tea. Both hot and cold tea is my favorite beverage. There is something about it that's soothing. allows it to drains away the day's stress. As I write this post, it's cold, thundering and raining outside. I have a cup beside me. The robust scent, coppery-red color, and hint of lime added in a beautiful, delicate bone china cup and saucer is warm and comforting on a day like today.
3. Star Trek. I looove this franchise. At present, Star Trek (TOG) and The Next Generation (TNG) are the ones I've been able to find and watch on TV plus the movies with the Chris Pine crew. My plan is to buy all of the movies and the series for Deep Space Nine, Voyager, and Enterprise. TV/Movie Marathon!
I have ideas for world/universe building and a science fiction romance series percolating.
5. Pearls. In my opinion, pearls represent refinement, beauty, and class. In the book, "Grits (Girls Raised In The South) Guide to life" by Deborah Ford, the sign of a true southern woman is pearls, a cast iron skillet, and a magnolia tree in the front yard.
Imagine: Seated on a wide veranda a victorian bed and breakfast dressed in cool spring flirty tea length dress, pearls clasped around your neck, a mint julep in hand conversing with the Ladies Garden Club. I've got the pearls, the flirty dress, and the skillet. To complete my qualifications to be a full-fledged GRITS girl, I just need the tree.
