Tea on the Market

p1000307

Looking for a place that is welcoming and well stocked with tea.. You have come to the right place if you have discovered the TeaStore@ 53 York Street in the Byward market right in the heart of the city, minutes away from Parliament Hill, and the Rideau Shopping Center.  These two ladies are regulars, they bike down on week-ends to enjoy a visit and their favourite tea and baked goodie.  During the summer they are able to add the delicious fresh fruit that is abundant in the market stalls nearby.  In winter they soak up the warmth inside of the shop, where they get to sit in a sunny area, either at tables or if lucky to get it the small red sofa.  Cosy as all get out..!

The shop is now owned by Joshua Savoie, who obviously has done a great job in maintaining the welcoming ambiance of the shop, he is gaining new “regulars” week-days and week-ends. The young hostess that was there when I visited Saturday was very knowledgeable about the teas, and products sold in the shop.  Had I had more time, I would have welcomed a lazy visit watching the activities from outside at one of the tables or inside at the big bright window.  Perched at the window table =^_^=

Ahhhh and what was I doing there… this charming shop, *teastore* has started to sell the cards I make for the Perfect Liberty, Funky Monkey Boutique.  As you know the FMB has a sale only 2, 3 times a year,  The cards are available all year, however we are at 1010 Hunt Club (near Airport Parkway)… so that is going west on Hunt Club if you are at Bank, you turn right to go towards Airport Parkway, Riverside etc.

Remember that October 15th. we are having our fall, Funky Monkey Boutique sale, 9 a.m. 1 pm.  After that it will be after church on the 21st. and by appointment. We have a lot of Diva jewelry, brand name purses, Xmas village what nots, funky bits and pieces for your Halloween outfits….some crafty items.  I will have a few of the scrapbooking/card making extras there, you never know what you will find.

Don’t be disappointed, come early, there is only so much room in the FMB.  What is that expression “the early bird gets the worm”…

Look at all the teas, this is just a portion of the tea being offered at the * teastore*, you can follow them on facebook and twitter, their web address is   http://www.teastore.ca

Everyone loves a good cuppa tea, there is so much to explore and see on the market. and the new updated Rideau Center..  Shake the shoppers and the big price tags, wander over to the  * teastore * 53 York Street, (next door to Lapointe’s)  enjoy the brew and the view.

Everyday is a new beginning

Cumberland is still within the city of Ottawa

Smile its Tuesday

5f12e28e32a7 Mount Cook, New ZealandWith so  many places in the world experiencing “weather drama”,  in the UK many are dealing with rain & flooding, in the States its snow,blizzards and freezing rain & Canada is getting its share of “stormy weather”  I delved into the picture files and found a highway in New Zealand  with clear blue skies and sunshine.  It is Tuesday a brand new day, there isn’t another car in sight at the moment, I can put the top down and enjoy the warm balmy weather.  The exhilaration of being on the open road, heading into unknown territory, new discoveries, I love, love, love it.  I love that moment of seeing what is around the bend.  The delight in savouring the moment and then !!  the joy at seeing another bend up ahead.  WOW….The bend up ahead will eventually come, but….. NOW is where we are today.  

Sometimes we are so intent on looking ahead, we drive by too quickly, we miss road stops along the way that hold wonders and opportunities that will enrich our lives as we travel towards our future.  Look, see, feel, smell,and if you can touch.connect . It is through experimenting, trial and error that we develop and grow.Never deny love in your life.  Love is a precious gift the more you love, the more it grows.  The more you share, the more comes back to you.  Yes, it can be scary at first, but each step forward brings you closer and closer to living a life filled with an eternal love that will embrace and hold you forever.

2c62ad0038636f6b05f4deec6a99599cTrue love cannot be measured, bought or sold. True love is unconditional and will stand the test of time, and transcend all mortal boundaries.

I pray for each and every one of you today, may your day be blessed with an inner calm and quiet that refreshes and soothes. May your frown be replaced with a smile…..  Know the warm glow of the “Divine” glows and grows within you.  Blessings….Oyashikiri
