Valentine Tea Eve

Twas the night before the tea and smells of freshly baked scones

and floral decorations permeated throughout the house.

Tom Cat snoozed and I settle down for a long winter nap.

Dreams of an am surf session filled my mind as sensations of hot tea and heart shaped lemon curd slathered scones danced in my head.

What is this you say?  Dreams of surf is no surprise but who is this scone baking, tea party hostess?

Tis I!

As a former classroom teacher, I have maintained my support for literacy and education.  Tomorrow is our Valentine Tea to benefit Books for Babies and Kits for Kindergarten hosted by the Iota Zeta Chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma International (an international organization of women educators who work to support teachers and literacy around the world).

Through our Books for Babies project, we give each newborn baby at the Mendocino Coast District Hospital a copy of the book Good Night Moon and information about the library and importance of reading to children at a young age.  Our Kits for Kindergarten project gives all new Kingergarten Students on the Mendocino Coast a kit with school supplies to help them do their homework and practice their reading and writing skills.

If you happen to be on the Mendocino Coast, join us tomorrow at 2pm at the Trinity Lutheran Church in Fort Bragg for our 10th Annual Valentine Tea.  $12 for adults and $5 for children.  It is a lovely afternoon of tea, treats, and music that supports education and literacy.

Can't make it - stay tuned as of course Liquid Fusion Kayaking supports Books for Babies and Kits for Kindergarten.  On Sunday May 19, we will be hosting An Afternoon on the River - a family kayaking event.
