Tea Time Is Good Medicine

I have been fighting a case
of post-Christmas, depth of winter
blue - blahs
this week.

Erin hears the words
"Tea Party" from the media
{even though it was used in politcal context}
and has a
"Great Idea".
"Let's have a tea party!"

The dress-up box is flung open;
clothes are flying all over the floor.
She tries on a lovely white with greeen trim
Scarlett O'Hara inspired dress.
But proclaims, "These are not my favorite colors."
Back to the box.
And here is the result:
"Take a picture of me with Toby."

Our menu: 
{which she packed into a purse made by my mom}
generic Walmart smiley-face fruit snacks
orange cheese cracker packaged sandwiches
an apple.
We added some graham crackers.
I had eggs.
While I had tea, she had hot cocoa with marshmallows.
She tried "pinkies-up"
but couldn't hold the cup and the pinky up
at the same time.

Good Friday mid-morning
for winter blues.
