A few weeks ago I preordered a book from Hoffman Media titled Come for Tea. It arrived in today's mail and it's a beautiful book. I'm so glad I ordered it. Lots of great tea time recipes and beautiful pictures.
I recently watched a video by Jennifer Peterson [put out by World Tea News] titled Building a Tea Lover's Library. Hoffman Media's Tea Time books were on her list of 'must haves'. I'm happy to have every one of the tea time books they've printed to date.
An envelope of pictures from a cousin also arrived in today's mail. My cousin was going through my deceased aunt's photo books and said she thought I'd like to have the pictures. What a pleasant surprise that brought back wonderful memories of my aunt.
I've spent most of this week working on my genealogy research. I've connected with cousins I haven't talked to in years. I told them genealogy research is like a giant jigsaw puzzle - you uncover information one piece at a time. How wonderful to have the Internet so travel to courthouses or libraries in other states aren't completely necessary.
While very interesting and addicting, the research is time consuming and at times frustrating when you can't find what you're searching for. While I was doing research yesterday trying to find information on family members only a few generations back, a wonderful thought crossed my mind: our Heavenly Father, who is infinite and all-knowing, knows everything about every person that has ever been born on this planet since the beginning of time and He doesn't have to research it! It's hard to comprehend, but it's wonderful and comforting to know.
Have a nice weekend!
