I've done it. I've chosen a date for my High Tea for Habitat for 2013. Saturday, 14 September is the day and I do hope it is a nice one weatherwise because I'm thinking a springtime tea in the garden will be sweet.
Last year was very small scale with just my sister and some of our children but this year I thought why not go a little bigger. Who knows though, maybe no one will be able to or even want to trek out here for a cuppa and a piece of cake so it still might be small scale yet.
High tea is my favourite kind of afternoon tea. Why? I'm not fond of sweets so all those lovely little savoury morsels entice me. I do like baking the sweet things though so I'm happy all round. I don't like buying into the trend that high tea has become of late but I can say I've been having high tea even when it wasn't THE thing to do and I will be still partaking long after it is blasé and the next fad has taken its place.
The High Tea for Habitat program raises funds for Habitat for Humanity and building homes both here in Australia and overseas. It feels good to help out even in a small way and the added bonus is time with friends. It's not too late to register to host a tea of your own. If you do sign up to host a tea, you are sent the sweetest host kit and the even can be as big or small as you like. It's fun. I just wish all of my lovely blogging friends could visit for my high tea now that would be fun.
No more talk of tea or I will be boiling the kettle and I have to get back to work. We had a very cold start this morning. A heavy frost and our lowest temperatures this year. Birdbaths and chicken water dishes frozen over. Makes me wonder why I actually sowed my spring vegetable seeds in the little greenhouse last week. But they seem ok and warmer than the surrounds so all is good there.
Tomorrow I am off to Agquip so most likely no blogging, no gardening, no cooking. Just tired feet from lots of walking.
