Of planning and Tea in Styrofoam Cups

We are always planning our next big move, Bea and I. What will our next big venture be? We're not about to tell you, but let's just say that something big is coming up for us in early November.

Bea came over to my house this morning (2 days in a row ~ what a treat to be in each other's company!). Lunchtime rolled around, so I scrounged up some What's in the Cupboard Soup. It had a little this and a little of that in it with a Chicken-y, Tarragon-y, Wild Rice-y, Chickpea-y, Corn-y, Perogy-y flavour to it.

We got serious about eating and planning, planning and eating. Martha mags were close by to inspire us. We like her ideas, and love to rip them off in typical Bessie and Bea style ~ we're not sure if Martha would be proud or put off, but we really don't care.

Anyway, after the strenuousness of a "Planning Luncheon", we met up with a couple of our ART Friends, Nicolette and Zach at Starbuck's. We don't really like to admit that we ever frequent any place where one can't order a coffee or tea in a proper china cup. It's a Venti pain in the neck to try to remember the Grande rules of the place!

Thinking she was being hip, Bea went to order a tea and asked for a "Tall" thinking that that meant she'd get the biggest cup in the place. And to top it off, she asked for a Double-double, without the slightest idea of what that meant. Poor Bea. She got a little paper cup of tea with too much of everything ~ except tea. Needless to say, she wasn't pleased at all. The only way that the tea could be any worse is if it had arrived at our table in a Styrofoam cup.
Now that's pure evil!

Bea isn't used of drinking her tea in anything other than a lovely china cup. I'm sure she went straight home and made a cuppa the right way!

That's all for now. Until next time ...
(who's very curious to the whereabouts of Ruby Wednesday!)
