On My Table And In My Cup This Week April 19-25th

I have had a very busy week this on my table and I am so thrilled that the mail man brought me an advanced reading copy of Hooked on Ewe by Hannah Reed. I loved her first book in this new series and I am doing a happy dance to get to read it 75 plus days early! This is book along with the new Garden Tea Pot from my father are the gems on my table this week.

 It was also Mr. William Shakespeare's birthday and death day as I understand it this past week and I am amazed at the impact that his words and work still have today. The above is my cup of tea and acknowledgment of the celebration of his life. 
I ordered The Seafront Tea Rooms from The Book Depository recently and though not a cozy was drawn to the book by the cover and the title and I am looking forward to reading this one. 
I also had a selection of my tea and recipe books out this week. As well as my very soggy cat, one of my sons tried to "help her get over her fear of water" by attempting to bathe her Thursday night. New rule in the house no trying to Baptize or Convert the cat...
Searching for the perfect square recipe to try out next week I laid out a few favorite cookbooks
I shall share that recipe with you one I find exactly what I was looking for.
 In my cup this week I found a heart. A young friend of mine named Ahmie who is 15 is battling cancer, I think about Ahmie, her mother and young sister and light a candle each morning. In their updates it is clear that Ahmie's hospice care is filling their days and through it all the family continues to live more in one day then most of us do in our life times.

So do share with me what was on your table and in your cup this week?
Thank you for joining me for a cup of tea and a cozy mystery.
As  with all my posts I would love to hear from you so please leave me a comment here or email me at

  1. LOL I don't have a table yet. First time in I've had a kitchen large enough for one in forever. My "cup" this week has been Pepsi all the way. Going through a mood. ;-) I love your post for the week. Wonderful!
