Every once in a while you have a quiet moment to take a break. Maybe it has been snowing out all night and now the world is snuggled in snow. Maybe you've been rushing about doing chores, scribbling some thoughts and raking leaves in the garden. The sun is dropping in the sky, and some clouds have moved in. You retreat into your little library, which is just a bookcase and a desk in the corner, for a few sips of tea and treats.
strawberries with sour cream and demerara sugar
blueberry tea with tupelo honey
lavash crackers with truffle paté
