Tea with Me

When life gives you lemons…bake a scone.

~*~

I baked myself a lemon scone

and brewed and cup of tea

went out into my garden

enjoyed some time with me.

The warm sun was relaxing

the breeze played with my hair

my bare feet wriggled in the grass

I chilled without a care.

I relished every single sip

of chamomile tea

lingered over the last bite

of scone — so lemony.

Next time when life gets crazy

I know just where I’ll be

chilling in my garden

enjoying a cup of tea… with me.
