Tea time at my house

Burr it is cold and wet and windy outside today, but toasty and warm inside.

My guests, for Christmas, left yesterday and today I am left with what to do next.  So I decided to have some tea and...

Tea table 01.12.29...start reading the manual for MY NEW CAMERA!

Yep, that's right I bought myself a new camera a couple of days ago.

Why you ask?

Well, let's first pour you a cup of tea.  Now... all started the week before Christmas when a very unfortunate case of timing started to ocurr.  First my computer then the device I used to transfer the pictures from my camera to my computer stopped dead, dead, I mean all dead.

So sad, but there is a happy ending you see.

With all those bad vibes going on I managed to get my computer issues resolved, but there still remained the issue of transferring my pictures.  What's a gal to do?

Well this one decided it was finally time to buy the camera she had been drooling over for more than a year.Tea table 02.12.29So I 'bout some warm tea to hunker down with camera and manual today.

I decided if I was going to have tea, I'd also play with the dishes and test the camera.  I want to try and come up with an idea for my New Year's Eve tablescape today, and also do some experimenting with taking a few photos.

I have an idea of how I want to decorate the table for our New Year's Eve dinner this year, but you'll have to to come back to actually see the photos.  I think we will have crab cakes and roasted asparagus for dinner.  I haven't yet decided on the soup or dessert, and the wine is my husband's job {as usual}.

What are your plans for New Year's Eve this year?
