T Stands for First Thing in the Morning

Happy Tuesday! Time for T again.
Stop over at Bleubeard and Elizabeth's blog to join the fun.
I want to begin by showing the contents of an envelope I received as part of T Day's year 6 birthday celebration.
This fabulous art is by Linda K !

.And she included a few Dina Wakely goodies. (Dina is my favorite Ranger designer so this is a great selection.)
Big thanks again Linda for the happy mail!

So my T party entry today is this shot from breakfast a couple of weekends ago. This is what happens when the dogs wake both you and the hubby up before 5 AM and then everyone is wide awake. Thanks goodness our favorite breakfast hole in the wall place opens at 5.
Not being a coffee drinker and not wanting hot tea on a hot morning, I went for my diet soda drink to caffeinate me.  The pancakes were delicious and the fresh peaches were roasted before being sliced. They were really yummy too.
And the same thing happened this past weekend. Not going out to breakfast but the dogs waking me up early. So this time (since they didn't wake up the hubby), the dogs and I went out for an early morning walk.

And now the heat is full on so I think I'll skip the long morning walks until we cool back off. I worry the dogs will overheat in their fur coats.
If you are also in the heat, try to stay cool.
And of course, have a fabulous T day and as always
thanks so much for visiting.

I am having so much fun looking at the different ATCs each one made. Linda sent you a beautiful one. I am also lusting over those delicious looking pancakes. Happy T Day!

Now I know who got the other ATC. They are brilliant, aren't they? Linda is SO generous and I really like the goodies she sent along with the ATC. So glad you got something you really like.

Your pancakes look wonderful. The grilled peaches look so yummy, too. I could eat that all day if I had an appetite. Thanks for sharing your ATC, your breakfast, and your diet soft drink with us for T this Tuesday, dear Erika.

The ATC and goodies from Linda are wonderful, enjoy. Love your beautiful breakfast, too, wouldn't mind seeing that plate of pancakes materialise here on my tale right now! Your walking pics are gorgeous. Have a happy T Day, Valerie

Fabulous 'happy mail' from Linda.
Your early morning breakfast looks delicious compensation for being woken so early. Lovely photos too from your early walk. Have a great week.

What a beautiful ATC from Linda and all those goodies, how kind! I'm loving the look of those pancakes too, I'd get the dogs to wake me every morning at 5am if that is your reward 😉. Wishing you a very Happy T Day! Hugs, Jo x

Great artwork and wonderful photos. The heat is back on in Connecticut, too. :-( I'm sure your dogs enjoyed their early morning walk with you. Good idea to skip the walks until it cools down a little again. Happy T-Day!

I love going out to breakfast. Not sure I want to go out at 5 am! The early morning walk would appeal to me though. Stay cool. Sounds like another good hammock day to take things easy

CJ Kennedy said...

Oh, and the ATC and other goodies was fabulous.

I love Linda's ATC! And - wow - what a fun bunch of Dina Wakley art supplies to play with. Have fun. I hope the dogs get their summer weekend clocks adjusted soon. We all need a day or two to sleep in.

Happy T-day! Eileen xx

Lovely photographs …

For me … No matter how hot it is, the day doesn't start until I've had a morning cup of tea! LOL!

All the best Jan

Oh you've had some happy mail too! What a lovely ATC with the tea bag and the stitching. And lots of goodies too.
American breakfasts never cease to amaze me. And this one is no exception. I'd be as big as a house if I ate that regularly! But it does look delicious, I must confess.
Happy T-Day,

Super ATC's and goodies Erika.
Not sure 5a.m. would be a good time for me, but going out for breakfast must have been a treat, it looks delicious.
Great photos today.
Happt T day wishes.
