A DAY IN THE COUNTRY

Welcome to the 89th Tea Time Tuesday 
Grandparents Day is a special day, time taken out just for our little grandchildren.
Last week I shared our day in Vicksburg, Mississippi with one of our grandson’s.
We live in the country, a farming community, when we first moved here, we showed our daughter’s the school they would attend. After living in the city with their old school a block away. 
Their new school had cows in a pasture beside it, cotton fields in front, and on the side is where the school’s FFA  class has goats, donkey, and grapevines. A big change from what they were use to.
Now my grandchildren attend the same school.
Now for the day we spent with two of our grandchildren.

In Hannah’s class I read a book to her and another child whose grandparents couldn’t come.
Hannah’s teacher was so nice to let us sit on the love seat, I would have had trouble sitting in the small chairs. lol
 Granpappy went to Creighton class to spend time with him
 After having refreshments in the class we checked them out and went over to the FFA
  muscadine and scupadine field

 Off to see the donkey, as we heard him calling

The donkey helps guard the goats, there was many more goats, but we only got a few in the photo’s.

 Hannah has a bag of scupadine we picked. 

 We went back over to the field and picked more of the fruit.
Hannah found a bird nest inside.

 After leaving, we dropped off a donations to the school little house for the fruit we picked. Even though it says to pay so much a gallon, we only picked a small bag, we left donation for a gallon.
The children had fun, even though we have vines at home and animals.
I know this was not a Tea but I wanted to share the few wonderful hours we had with our grandchildren.  
Next week I will show you Anchuca and a Tea. I happen on as it was just finished the day we spent in Vicksburg, Mississippi.

A Lovely Tea for Hazel in a B B

Welcome to the 85th Tea Time Tuesday
This week my camera will not load on to my computer. I had some new things to share with you, hopefully soon, I will get this fixed!!

Please enjoy a Tea I had with my lovely friend.

I shall be sharing one of my Dearest Friends Tea
 Hazel’s 90th Birthday 
On April 3, I was honored to attend a lovely Tea for my friend Hazel
at Heart’s Content Bed and Breakfast in Canton, Mississippi

Now many of you might know, Canton has two huge Flea Markets every May and October
People come all over to attend this wonderful Flea Market
I am just 30 minutes away! Lucky me! 
A lovely table of savories, and sweets 
Heart’s Content Bed and Breakfast 
Is in a lovely grand old home

As You walk into the front doors the view of the stair case is breathe taking
The lovely tin ceiling 
A register to sign in, a lovely photo of Hazel from her college photo album
A grapevine basket, in lieu of gifts, for a memory, or story about Hazel, shall be full by the end of the day, with another basket in waiting 
Hazel made all the lovely grapevine baskets you shall see 
Some of the flowers picked from her garden
the grapevine baskets are filled with
I am a proud owner of one of her baskets
Below the staircase
A lovely refreshing container of lemon water
Just before I go into the parlor to greet my lovely friend
I took a snapshot of one of the bedrooms
The bed, and sofa are so beautiful
Notice the pattern of the tin ceiling here
My Dear Friend, Hazel and Lady Katherine
Hazel was so happy as I to see her
for we both have been through surgeries, and not able to have Tea Together
Hazel told my husband she would love him forever for bringing me
to her Tea
He told her I would have walked if he had not brought me
Hazel is a true treasure in my life 
She been at every family event, and when I was/working traveling 
she would be there for the events I could not
Hazel has taught me many things in my life, one was her love of Afternoon Tea
I love you dearly, Hazel
Happy 90th Birthday
View of the dining room through the doorway is the staircase
The wallpaper on the dining room wall is covered in blue birds 
Everyone knows I adore bluebirds 

That is my husband in front of the lovely mantel with his arm crossed
He looks so thrilled, lol
The chandelier  is so lovely
This room, and all the other rooms were so full of people, you had to squeeze by
The cakes look wonderful
Oh, the dark chocolate cake was divine, the icing did not taste like icing
It was so wonderful  

The silver trays were so lovely on the table
All the silverware was on one large silver tray 
In front of the flowers, I was told is a torte, a family member made
At first I thought it was cream cheese, I have no idea what it was made of 
How wonderful it was with the crackers

Open faced cucumber sandwiches with cream cheese spread on the circles of  white bread

 These sandwiches of turkey,ham,cheese and mustard spread 
were wonderful, for the bread is a yeast bread cut into squares

 A flavored coffee setting
My husband poured a glass cup of it
It was very light in color, he said:
Oh, this is hot tea! He handed me the cup I took a sip,
and said No, it your coffee! 
I do drink a little coffee with lots of milk and chocolate
But I do love my TEA!

Lovely fresh flower centerpiece
 A lovely crystal bowl of toasted pecans

A tray of tomato, bacon chips, and mayonnaise on circles of white bread 

The lovely silver punch bowl held Frozen Mint Tea
Yes, it is so wonderful,
 for Hazel loves to serve it on a hot summers day
while entertaining her guest in her garden

To make the Frozen Mint Tea
This is usually the only time that I use tea bags:
Use fresh tap water, never distilled water,  use cold water, never hot

Use one cup of fresh spearmint leaves and two family size tea bags
In a pan, your choice, I use enamel 
Bring to a rolling boil, cover and steep for five minutes at least.
Add fresh cold tap water to your gallon pitcher 
Add 1 and half cups of sugar
Stir until sugar dissolves
Strain out the spearmint, and remove the two tea bag from your pan
Add your steeped tea liquor to the pitcher and finish filling with tap water.
After  the Mint Tea cools, you can fill old milk plastic milk jugs and freeze
To serve cut open the top of the milk jug, and add to your punch bowl  
A view of the table from the mantel side
You, can see the pink heart mints on a tray
Yes, we all reached for the Frozen Tea!

My wonderful husband, Terry went out to the porch to eat, where I joined him
As we sat at the tables that lined the porch,
other guest begin to come out to the porch to sit
for there was not even standing room inside
Here is my place setting, You can see the tea is frozen

As we said our goodbye to Hazel and her lovely Afternoon Tea
Can you see me on the center front, a waiting my carriage? I mean my husband to pick me up. 

As we drive away one last look at the lovely home from the the back of the house, 
with a wonderful pond and waterfall in an iron fence
Today I wish so much I could have Tea with Hazel again!

The Roost Cafe in Leesburg Mercantile Remodel

Welcome to the 77th Tea Time Tuesday
Today I am sharing our Cafe in the Old General Store
The Roost Cafe in Leesburg Mercantile
We opened thinking we would finish remodeling, for it would be slow at first.
We were so wrong, we have been busy everyday, 
with not much time to spare, or time to sleep.

In the middle we planned to build two more tables, for now it has one make shift table, as you can see the tablecloths are a little large, did not get to finish trimming or hemming the tablecloths.
The right side of the floor had to be rebuilt, I had  planned on faux painting lines and doing a darker stain to match the old tongue and groove flooring. Hopefully I will get to do it when we get more things together here.
My husband made the tables, I repainted, recovered the chairs,
and painted black polka dots on some of the wooden chairs.
I painted the faux brick walls, which were pres-cut rough wood. Some are crooked, my first try at painting faux brick.  But then the old store is crooked too. lol I planned to do a crack in the faux brick, maybe later.
One grape is hanging on the fence, I haven’t been able to go look for grapevine with green leaves and grapes, I wanted to decorate the top of the fence with.
The coffee center
Each morning the cafe fills up  about 5:30 am with coffee drinkers,
 eating their bacon, egg, sausage and cheese biscuits.
Later we hope to add a Breakfast Buffet, and soon biscuits with sausage gravy.
Just inside the entrance of the cafe, looking out into the Old General Store
We used a lattice fence I bought for my yard, a few years ago on sale, but it is six feet tall and too tall for my yard, so we decided to use it for the cafe. I think it gives it an outdoor look, with privacy from the store customers.
Hanging above each table are French prints. 
Another view of the Coffee Bar, I spray painted black, 
and purchased at a garage sale for $15.00 with two stools.
Right side of the cafe, hold red lanterns, and a rooster candle in the middle with tin pierced shade
Each of the plates and holder on these tables came from Hobby Lobby
The  rooster napkin holders from Family Dollar
Each day for Lunch and Dinner the cafe is full.
Will soon need my Tea room remodeled, as it is as big as the cafe and old general store rooms.
We still have many other rooms, as the Old Genera Store is like a tiny strip mall in the country.
We have people driving an hour away to come and eat, Our Cafe has been very successful. 
I am working on our menu, as many are requesting to take it to different cities and towns.
I do so wish for two more tables. I still have chairs to recover and paint.
Each table has large or small roosters, the trash can is now replaced with a tin tan one. lol
I want to add a window at the end, and a table there for now. 
We are looking into to buying a buffet for this wall.
The red booths came with the store, so I just went with colors to match.
Here is our Super Hamburger, we have sold hundreds in the first month
Hope to get a count soon. lol
A closer view of the chairs with polka dots
While remodeling we found  in the ceiling a black metal vent, where an old wood stove used to be. Myy husband found on Craig List an old pot belly wood stove, just a month before, he going to add it for decoration this winter.
Entrance to the Roost Cafe inside the old general store
I have many more Roosters to add to the cafe, soon as I have more time and tables. lol
My friend Maryann, brought this plant in the teapot and painted the name of the old general store on it.
We love it Maryann!!!
Restroom, my husband built from old tin, and old wood from a barn.
Inside is modern plumbing. lol

I will have Tea Time Tuesday up later today. 
 I have been at the hospital seeing my Daddy, whom had open heart surgery this week,
 all week trying not to let him know how sick I been this week while he had his open heart surgery. 
My Daddy is out of ICU but not doing well today, and as I have had a bad asthma attack, plus I haven’t been able to walk in three days. I went to visit him this afternoon, and decided to have my test done at the hospital Daddy is in. While after seeing him for a little while I went downstairs to the ER. There I spent many hours, just getting home now. All my test, cat scans, xray, ultra sound all found nothing, yet, I have a swollen knee, 
and barley walking. I go to surgery this Wednesday. Which has nothing to do with my knee. lol
I will have Tea Time up every week on automatic posting for you to link to. 
As I recover, I shall be reading your post and comments.
So be sure to check back later this afternoon for Tea Time Tuesday’s link
So sorry, I do not have the Tea up yet for you to link to,
 I thought the Doctors were doing one small test, instead of keeping me most of the night through test.
There were just making sure everything is OK before my 8-10 hour long surgery this coming Wednesday.
See you soon
