Tea and a Quote

Brew me a cup for a winter's night, for the wind howls loud and the furies fight. ~~ M.T. Antrim 

Last night ~ well, really, this morning ~ I couldn't sleep.  I came down and made a pot of tea in one of my favorite pots.  I didn't realize it was that late ~ or that early ~ until I was settled and looked at the clock.  I decided that, since I probably wouldn't be able to return to sleep, I'd go ahead and make a fire to keep me company through the wee hours.  Then, looking around at the sleeping cats, I thought I'd get my camera and get some photos.  As soon as they heard me getting into the camera bag they took off for upstairs!  So, I took a photo of the teapot and cup instead.  I've always wondered why I wake up on nights like these at exactly 3:00 a.m.  Never mind the "witching hour," I heard someone say once that 3 a.m. is the hour of the demons.  I think that's more appropriate; it seems like that's when my demon, also known as "worry", visits me.  Hopefully, I'll sleep tonight...


  1. Hi Victoria,
    First, thank you so much for visiting and leaving such kind words.
    I love your Tea pot!
    Now that is very interesting, and a little unsettling.. I had never heard that before. For the past 2 weeks every night at 3 am, right on the nose, I wake up.
    Wishing you a good nights rest.
    Sorry you did not get the photo of the cats, that sounds like something Jasper (my poodle)
    would do.. Take off..

  2. Dear Victoria- I can relate. I seem to get awake at 2:30 am and cannot get back to sleep. So when I am making coffee I will be thinking of you and your tea. Have a great weekend.

  3. Ha ha, poor cats, they must have been like "oh no, I haven't even got my makeup and hair done! Why, mum!"

  4. Also love the hour for demons idea
