Huzzah to Queen Bonnie and her magical realm!

Thanks Fairemare for recreating this thread. I'd wondered what became of it on the original site. Any sort of rosehip herb tea for me please. And I've brought along cranberry scones.

Also, my British husband would be honored to make scones, if you would like more edibles.

Funny, but I don't quite remember the tea in New Zealand.  I think it was English varieities mostly.  We'd stop for second breakfast or elevensies, but rearely afternoon tea, so I usually had hot chocolate and a pastry (not a coffee drinker, though I recall the rest of my fellowship having interesting-looking coffees).

It's so hot here, watermelon sounds wonderful!  And Texas blueberries are coming into season.  *Sets down a bowl of berries for all to share*

Good Queen, if we add our temperature and your temperature together and then divide in half, then both of us will be comfortable.

Right now, I'm wearing sweatpants and a sweatshirt and after reading more of the Forum will go upstairs and make a cup of tea.  Even Tennessee with a towel around my neck sounds good now!

Since I don't be finding tea as my drink of choice in the AM, might I have a wee nip of that whiskey to "Irish up" my coffee this fine Texas morn?


~places a tray of hand made biscuits and a hot tureen of sausage gravy on the table~  Breakfast anyone?

AHHHH and look at this Purple Dragon already had exactly what I wanted served up ready to go...breakfast indeed thank-thee good Sir.

Stopping in for some peaches and cream. That sounds SO good!

*Anna picks a pretty rose silk scarf for herself from Daylights treasures.* Thank you Daylight. I love presents from friends.

A hot tea day for me. I've a bit of a head cold and I have to chase it away. It's been a busy few weeks and the next few will be busier still. I'm trying to become certified as a QiGong instructor. I passed the first part yesterday. Got a 92/100. I could have done better but I was all nervous. This next part is gonna be really hard. Send me good wishes on the weekend of the 26th!

Strictly ginger tea for me today to put my stomach back on track, so I'm mainly here for the company today.

QiGong, Anna! I wish you lived closer! The nearest I can get to such instruction is tai chi in Huntsville, really too far to travel on a regular basis.  :(  If there's a book you can recommend for someone trying to learn on her own, please pass the title along. Best of luck with your tests and may you soon be helping others achieve better well-being!

Queen Bonnie, your reports of creative frenzy (and exhaustion) are uplifting.  ;D  I hope you'll be sharing some pics of your wands and staffs.

 I should finish up the last of my 5 new staffs today. I will try to get pictures! They are so full of magical energy- they don't photograph too well.  I will share pictures soon- hopefully!

Now a warm crepe with asparagus and swiss would be wonderful mmm and a port after.

Is that a shot of your trip to Paris WW?  I asssumed it was something you found online.

If it's tried and true I'll have a slice. Just maybe a small dollop of whipped cream.



Aw, that's sweet Eloquent. Thanks. :)

So you're trying the chocolate cobbler? Can you post a picture of it when it's done?

Post by: eloquentXI on August 07, 2008, 08:42:58 PM
Aye, I checked it a minute or two ago and it's actually setting up well! I was so...just perplexed because it had me pour boiling water over the top of the batter and sugar mix on top. Neither my Mom nor I have done anything like it before (and she's been baking for longer than I've been alive).

So, just finished with the chocolate cobbler. For a first round, it did not turn out bad! Bit too much liquid but thats easily fixed. Tastes really good, Dad said he really liked it cause it wasn't overly sweet. Just needed a huge scoop of vanilla ice cream on it and it would have been perfect.

*Wench and Festmum come in, dripping wet and trying not to track sand into the Wizard's Tower*

The Sister Sandwenches bring something very fitting....HURRICANES!
And a platter of fresh fruit, cheese and crackers.

Good morrow, Majesty, ladies, gentlemen,

I bring juice from a most wonderful fruit. 'Tis called a pomegranate. Lovely to drink, most vexing to eat, however, unless you do as the inhabitants of the Mediterranean do, and simply eat the seeds. Very cooling and quenching on a warm day.

I also have a nice selection of breads, cheeses and small tea cakes. Enjoy!

 Tis very nice to visit over tea with friends here!

Oh my gosh, mulled mead and shortbread sounds so good. :) A Merry Yule to you Bonnie. I was thinking of you this morning and missing having tea with you.

Thank you Bonnie. Wearing Mistletoe is this Kingdom brings a few more adventures than even I am up for....Perhaps if I wear just a teeny tiny sprig....wouldn't do to tuck ones heart away forever.  ;)


I'm a few hours early, but tommorrow at 7:00AM marks the Winter Soltice. May our days grow ever brighter!  :)

I'll trade weather anytime Bonnie. It's beautiful today but will warm up to 80 by Christmas Eve Day, with possible rain for Christmas. That's what I get for living wear Santa wears Bermuda shorts. ;D

I love brie! Sounds wonderful To add to that I have the most Delicious strawberries. I've discovered a hydroponic farm a bit north of me. What a treat. So sweet!

Freshly baked cranberry nut bread this morning and good stong coffee. Lot's to do with Christmas so near.  My house mice are busy wrapping presents and finishing the house chores so I could sneek away for a bit this morning!

*Anna hangs her stocking next to Bonnie's and Donna Catalina's. She tucks a vial of Joy and a box filled with Happiness for Bonnie. For Donna an inkwell that never runs dry and a quill that stay ever sharp. :)

I can't stay, Queen Bonnie, but I wanted to drop off this double chocolate cheesecake and a bottle of Bailey's Irish Cream for you and your wizard.

It is best if you dip each forkful in the Bailey's.  ;)

*Anna enters the Queens parlor and seeing it unused since winter decides it's time for a Tea Party!* She moves about the room opening the windows and letting in the cool breeze. Outside the sound of the nearby brook and the song of a mockingbird fill the air. She fills the vases with flowers from the garden, most especially the yellow roses her Queen loves so much and sets upon the table pitchers of iced Peach and Raspberry Teas. She unwraps a fresh sour cream pound cake still warm from the oven and places bowls of fresh berries and sweet whipped cream beside it. Not forgeting the royal kitties she places a bowl of treats by the fireplace and lifting Tachi into her lap she waits for those who will join her.*

Today is one of those days I need to sit back with a hot cup of tea and good book. Anyone care to join? My Queen, perhaps you could do a spell or two to bring us some cooler weather!
Title: Re: High Tea and Crumpets to Spare

I'd love to join you for tea Lady Ashlyn. :)

It's pretty warm here in Florida just now too, though nothing like what you all have in Texas. We had a spell of that a few weeks back. It was miserable!

Nice thing about the Queens parlor is the weather is always perfect here for what you want. :)

Mmmmm... I'd love a we drop 'o the amber, if I may?  I would also love to join you beautiful ladies here in your delightfully, and magically, cool parlor, my Lady Queen, if there is room for one more? 

I bring you flavored pecans from my realm, grown in the orchard of my grandparents, whose home is soon to be packed up and sold, so these are from the last crop I will have access to, which is sad.  There are both savory, made with cayenne and other spices, and sweet, made with sugar and cinnamon, and I brought more than enough for everyone.  I also have a special bottle for you, Madam, from Scotland...  ;)  and a bit of bubbly and fresh squeezed orange juice, if anyone would care to join me for a mimosa?
Title: Re: High Tea and Crumpets to Spare
Post by: Queen Bonnie on July 17, 2009, 02:54:29 PM
 So glad you could join us Rani Z.  There is always room for one more in here! Tis a large room!
 We do love the Sweet Pecans! Yummy and thanks! You know I appreciate anything from Scotland! did anyone bring a laddie in a kilt to pour the brew? LOL! *The faint sound of soothing bagpipes wafts through the room! You can almost smell the heather in bloom!
 I love mimosas- but hold the OJ!  Cheers!

I do agree Queen Bonnie. We need a nice lad from Scotland in our services! Sweet Pecans sound wonderful. I love cinnamon. It reminds me of autumn!

Wow, this place can use some dusting!  :o

*dusts off the table and sets down homemade pumpkin pie with plenty of fresh whipped cream dusted with cinnamon and allspice*

It's made with fresh pumpkin, not the canned stuff.

Oh--and a teapot of pumpkin latte.

After all, it is the season!  :D

I left a cauldron full of hot (love!) pumpkin soup - so good with a little sour cream - for lunch.  Save a spoonful for me!

Aaaaaahhh...  So very nice to sit and relax after such a wonderfully tiring weekend!  A wee dram with a bit of pumpkin soup and a cookie sounds like just the remedy for tired feet.  It was so very wonderful to see you again, my dear Queen, and I look forward to the next time we meet in the lanes.  My daughter adored meeting you, and is so excited about becoming the newest FOKTOP member that she had to make sure everyone we met was informed!  She has many plans in that area, and I believe we will be making a report in the near future. 

I've brought you some more of the pecans, as well as some homemade apple butter with fresh warm wheat bread.  It looks like we have quite a wonderful tea laid out!  :)

 Great to see you again Rani Z. Your daughter is beautiful and we are so pleased she hates the Evil peeps! She will be an asset to FOKTOP! Huzzah! I wonder why I am a wee bit tired? Putting my feet up and having a spot of tea with friends here is a lovely way to pass the afternoon!
