On My Table and In My Cup September 3rd-10th

What a week, so much going on, not sadly much time to sit and read and drink tea the day away. School started this week and the chicken head cut off routine began. I am so pleased to say I snuck in several chapters here and there and I am so very thankful for the books that have crossed my table this week. Buy a friend a book day was August 31st and my favorite non-regular holiday to participate in! My wonderful friend Karen sent me the two books shown above.
My Buy A Friend A Book Day Swap Partner Kathleen sent me these two, via The Book Depository who included (and recently began sending) the nicest book marks to color!

Also on my table and I was reading Murder She Wrote this past week, first I have read in this series, i fondly remember the tv show and my mom watching it too.
 I finished Dead to the Last Drop by Cleo Coyle on Labor Day Monday and have the review later this month with a give away so I hope you will check back!
I also managed to finish Murder of a Cranky Catnapper by Denise Swanson, this too is being reviewed later this month with a give away September is always so busy but I am blessed to be able to give away two great books this month. More on the details on these give away's September 21st and 26th.
I can not say enough about Patrice Greenwood's A Fatal Twist of Lemon, seriously this book is a prize on my shelf and I long to read the entire series.
I also need to remember to put Jean Flowers' first book in the Postmistress Series on my list as well, I really enjoyed this one.
We need more series with strong woman of a certain age and her friends like this one by Susan Bernhardt. What a lucky week I have had with books and tea!

In my cup this week I have been so very blessed to have my personal favorite Heavenly Cream that I ran out of three weeks ago, my very dear friend Daniela went to Neverland Tea and picked me up 200 grams, it has been such a delight to have it back in my daily mix!
Also in my cup this week is the Pukka Earl Grey tea, I think I mentioned it last week and wow is it ever good.
Wednesday morning I met with my friend Farnoush who has just arrived back in Canada and she brought me the most wonderful Saffron Tea. It was a true pleasure to see her again and a wonderful surprise to have been gifted this tea, the taste reminds me of the finest Darjeeling tea with a round and robust flavor that feels very indulgent!

Thank you so much for joining me for a cup of tea and a week in review! I would love to hear from you so please leave me a comment here or email me at
