My still life June 2, 2010

This weeks’ prompt on Sticky Fingers is Still Life.

Well, I thought hard and long because my photographic skills are very limited but in the end I decided to link together 4 elements that I have written about earlier or at least meant to.

The are:

a mug of tea

hand cream

home made (with the princesses) cookies

some time for me

My photo put all 4 together. Here it is:

Put together like this, it looks like I’m going to have a few minutes to myself.  I’d start with applying a generous coat of hand cream (the best for someone who like me gets very chapped and dry skin is Neutrogena), then I’d munch my way through the cookies (these are Anzac biscuits revisited – I add chopped cranberries to the mix and some vanilla essence) sipping my tea (in my favourite mug that TP got me for birthday last year) as I go.  I’d be having this on our terrace (here, more often than not it’s hardly ever prohibitively cold) at my little table covered with my favourite tablecloth (that I got at Castel Gandolfo, near Rome in July 2000).

Now, please, don’t start thinking, that I do this every day, or every other day, or every week …. I hardly ever get to drink my tea warm enough for it to be a pleasure, but if I had to imagine a simple way to have a break – this would be it.
