It has been really hot here. So hot it's not any fun to be
outside. Every morning I get up early and finish all of my
must do's. Then in the mid afternoon I carve out a bit of
time just for me. On some days all I want to do is sit
down, put my feet up and have a cup of tea and pick up
a cozy mystery.
This past Saturday when we were shopping in Houston, we
stopped by one of my favorite shops ~
British Isles. I am so glad this shop is still on Rice Blvd.
I used to shop there years ago while I lived in Houston and
I used to save my money to pick up something there
whenever I could. On Saturday I picked up these cute
cups and saucers by Roy Kirkham Tableware. These
cups honor the Mini Cooper. We used to have one but we
sold it when we moved down to Texas.
I love cups with saucers because it gives me a place to rest a
spoon and maybe a cookie too. These cups are really big so
I don't have to refill with tea or coffee so often. A big plus
when I am involved in a cozy mystery.
Over the years I think I have read all of the Agatha Christie
mysteries and many of the Dorothy L Sayers too. I will
pretty much read anything that takes place in a darling little
English village. I am a big fan of Aunt Dimity.
I just picked up this Jennie Bentley cozy. I have not read this
author before but was intrigued by her character of Avery Baker
who was a textile designer and is now renovating her aunt's
vintage Maine cottage.
Wish you were here to join me.
I have a comfy chair for you too.
If you enjoy cozy mysteries and need some ideas of what to
read next try this site Cozy Mystery. It's a great resource.
A Bentley update. My little peanut has been a very
good boy and has stayed out of cat poo in the backyard.
Some of you may be wondering if we have a cat. No
we don't, but there are stray cats in our neighborhood
who wander in and out of our yards. They are feral and
we all kind of look out for them. My husband does not
like cats and neither does Bentley, but I like them.
Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
