Anne, Pouring Out the Tea

"I can just imagine myself sitting down at the head of the table and pouring out the tea," said Anne, shutting her eyes ecstatically.  "And asking Diana if she takes sugar!  I know she doesn't but of course I'll ask her just as if I didn't know.  And then pressing her to take another piece of fruit cake and another helping of preserves."

  1. Oh Anne Shirley is absolutely my favorite character of all time!!

    I love you story about your 105 year old grandmother cutting vegie scraps. 105? Really? You've got some amazing genes!

    Blessings, Debbie

  2. So he's the one with the good genes... ;)


  3. I've heard of an anglophile, have been of being one myself by my English relations. Is there such a thing as a Canuck-o-phile? Or are you just an Anne fan? Either way, I love you for it! :)

  4. I do not trust a soul who is not an Anne fan!

  5. Too much fun! Hope all is well with you, sweetie! I am under the weather, but pushing through!
    Hope you have a lovely week!

  6. I would love to sit and have tea and fruitcake with Anne! Thanks for giving me the thought today.

  7. Of course - I'm with Vee above!
