Since I can remember, I have had tea for breakfast with either buttered or toasted bread or muffins or scones (For recipe).
I can say it is a family thing more so a Kenyan thing. In my country, Kenya, tea is more than just a beverage. Despite the season or weather, you will also find someone having a cup of tea at home or a coffee house. Tea, hot tea is ENERGISING after a long day at work. Tea people together; tea party. Catching up with friends, going out on a date, it’s all about the tea.
Quick Fact: Did you know that the 4 O’ Clock tea was originally by Queen Alexandra. This has also been a ritual in my family. It is a break between lunch and dinner to catch up, mainly over the weekend, and also refuel the body.
Daily Prompt: tea!
Hello Everyone, another month is here! Every new month is a new chance to be happy, make memories and draw up new plans.
April is here! This is a vital celebration month such as December is with Christmas.
What is in for us this month?
With schools closed, this is the time of the year, we get to celebrate Easter. This is not restricted by religion or faith, but everyone gets to do something out of the norm. The Easter holiday is an important season, especially for Christians. They commemorate the suffering, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The celebration begins on Good Friday and ends on Easter Monday. The celebrations normally include church attendance.
The season is also celebrated with a symbol of eggs ‘Easter eggs’. The Easter eggs are said to symbolize the empty tomb that was left behind when Jesus rose from the dead. This Easter egg symbol has been attributed to other pagan practices.
For the others, they opt to go out of their way and help the vulnerable or less fortunate in the society. This may be part of the organization you work or school you go to or a group of friend(s) initiative.
Others go out for Easter related events such as Easter egg hunts. These events such as Easter egg hunt or Easter painting enable people to reconnect and have fun.
In addition to Easter eggs, Easter bunnies are also part of the Easter celebrations. These are exciting especially for kids. At times it involves children baking goods -like cookies and other pastries shaped like bunnies.
May your last months’ failures be your successes this month.
It is that time of the year again. I have already begun this season of thanksgiving on a different note. Though I don’t live in the US, my family and I still celebrate it.
Yesterday my work day was outdoors. It was chilly and a bit of rain now and then. That is custom weather around November and December in Nairobi, Kenya. While at work, I reflect on the Thanksgiving and took note of this beautiful flower. Springing out of the bud to the beautiful flawless petals. It must be happy. Enjoying the beautiful sunshine. Like the flower, I am grateful to God, my family, friends and to all that I have met on the ‘blogsphere’.
I pray for peace and good health for all of you.
It’s Wednesday; mid-week. The weekend seems far and I am reminiscing the past weekend. The week seems longer.
It is time to drop my hands down, fold up my sleeves focus on the end of the week: WEEKEND.
