If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea…we would be looking out at the rainy weather and agree it is good to be indoors, drinking tea and keeping cosy.
If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea…we would talk about the signs of spring, the bulbs popping up, the buds on the magnolia, even though it is still winter. We smile at the thought of longer and warmer days ahead.
If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea…I would tell you about my shopping today: a cookbook from Arty Bees, some herbal tea to help in Covid recovery, a beeswax candle and these intriguing sounding rose, raspberry and pomegranate truffles from local producer Baron Hasselhoff’s. You say that all looks good. I say yes though the tea tastes like a herbal remedy and you laugh.
If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea…I would tell you I managed to get hold of some more Jerusalem artichokes and have made a big pot of soup, so would you like to stay for dinner? There is some fresh bread too and we could try the new truffles for dessert. You say oh yes that sounds really good! So we sit down and enjoy dinner and more conversation.
