Enjoy Every Moment

Inspirational Tea: The Charm of Home
How is 2015 treating you?  It is off and running isn't it? 

Inspirational Tea: The Charm of Home
Are we enjoying every moment?  
The purpose of life is to enjoy every moment.

Inspirational Tea: The Charm of Home
Today I am having tea and reading a book on my Kindle.  Do you read on your electronic devices?  I like it because I can read with the lights off.

What a lovely tea tray. I often read on my smart phone. It is a big one so it is "almost" like holding a book. (a galaxy note.) I like that it works as well as a kindle or a nook.

I have a tablet and have downloaded some e-reader apps but have yet to try them out!

My January has been pretty busy with family, volunteering and cleaning/organizing. I'm hoping to start a quilt top tomorrow but this evening (after a blog hop!!), I'll reading "Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet." I like my kindle for travel but still prefer holding a book while reading. Enjoy your January, Sherry.

Your tea tray is charming, Sherry. A little daydreaming is good for you, I always say. We sometimes take ourselves too seriously. Thank you for joining me for tea.

Glad you are enjoying your January

Winter is the perfect time for books and even movies! I spent some time today filing back all the recipe files I pulled out for Christmas. That tray looks lovely and delicious!

Your vignettes look so calming. I love my Nook as I can read in the dark when hubby sleeps! :)

Sorry, I had to leave for a while to grab a few things to put together a beautiful try and take pictures....thanks for the 'nudge'.[creatively speaking]

That tray is so lovely!

I love my ipad for reading!! I love that I can house many books in it, that it lights up and that I can change the font & pages for day or night depending on when I'm reading.

I do love a good solid book now and then too - but I'd never give up my ipad!! Lol

What a pretty tea setting. I can imagine that it would be lovely to spend a cosy hour with tea and a book. I am trying to get used to my kindle, but find I still default to a hard copy.

Cindy @ Dwellings-The Heart of Your Home said...

Tea, fruit, and a good book...sounds good to me. My daughter gave me her old Kindle and I don't use it much...maybe one day I'll get used to it.
Thanks so much for sharing at AMAZE ME MONDAY.

Antiques And Teacups said...

My favorite afternoon teatime is a lovely cuppa in the sunroom with my husband, cat and a good book on my Kindle died, but the Kindle app works fine! And I can read in the dark and not disturb him...priceless! Lovely photos. Thanks for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!
