I know I go on and on about my addiction to hazelnut coffee but I do love the ceremony of making tea. When I need comforting I make tea. Coffee is for chatting with friends, tea is for deep conversations and cozying into your favorite chair with a good book on a rain day.

The site manager looked at Cliff and said, "Oh, didn't you get the memo, today's a rain day."
"What?!!?" my dad yelled. "It's perfectly sunny without a cloud in the sky!!"
The guy looked at Cliff (dad) with a grin on his face. "I guess you're not from around here. Eight out of ten of the workers voted that it was raining too much to safely work so it's a rain day. Go home and enjoy your day off man!"
My dad blinked, flabbergasted. He got a more complete explanation before going home. It seems that to ensure safety (in a Province that gets a lot of rain) there is a rule that says that if 80% of the workers agree that there is too much rain to make it safe to be working on slippery roofs etc. then they go home to work another day when it's not raining. It's true that the workers don't get paid for these rain days so voting to go home when it's actually safe to work is really rare but sometimes on truly beautiful days when everyone agrees, ahh, let's just go home, they do. It just happened that my dad hit upon one of those very rare non-rain rain days, lol. The next day all was well and the construction workers were steadily back at work diligently doing their jobs by 7 AM.
Anyway, onto my teapot series... I don't think I've ever done anything this colorful and I LOVE it. It's funny, I am so drawn to colorful, interesting and dimensional work, you'd think I'd do more. Hopefully now that I see I can, I will. :o)
