Morning Tea with a Rainbow

My morning starts with me at the sink getting water for tea for breakfast. I looked out to the west and saw this partial rainbow about 6:20! The cows at the dairy next door have yard lights and that is what is "in front of" the rainbow. Not an alien invading my yard! It's so amazing to see one in the west in the morning.
I could have titled this plain or fancy because I like my tea in one of my favorite mugs below~one from England or one from Japan.
The one above was made in England! It has sugar beets and it came from Beta Seed Co. Wally was a farmer and grew beets, corn, hay, and even tried onions and pickles. Tate and Lyle (United Kingdom) invested in sugar production when producers started up after several years of no one growing beets.
My other favorite is Mikasa made in Japan and I use it all year long as I love Christmas. Hot tea in the morning gives me a wee boost to start my day.

I'm joining Sandi this week for tea. Please visit her to see more wonderful tea time posts. Sandi always has thoughtful readings for me that help me reflect and ponder.
Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance. Jude 1:2

As I visit others in the Land of Blog, I am thankful for those that are helping me to grow in faith and open my heart to new possibilities during Plan B of my life.

The drawing for my goodies will end tomorrow night. If you'd like a win, you need to leave a comment on my give away post. (Look on the side for a link). ♥♫

It didn't rain here, but there must have been moisture in the air over west somewhere. And it's smelling like fall--corn is getting ready to be cut!
