I have writer’s block. I’m in the third quarter of grad school, and just when I thought things were coming together, I just can’t seem to find the inspiration to write the last 3 finals that stand between me and the Holiday season. Gah!
In other news, I did get my thesis proposal signed off by my primary advisor, and that has been a huge relief in this process. What was even more interesting is that my thesis might have some merit with what is going on in the world right now.
Raven had the best idea to meet for afternoon tea at Edison & Melrose in Monterey, and with the way my luck has been going over the past week, I just through my books on the table, shut my laptop, and headed out for some girl time, and to forget about finals for a moment.
If you haven’t been to Edison and Melrose then I can definitely recommend it. Karen, is the woman who runs the place and she has a British accent that compliments the quaint little tea house.
After picking which afternoon tea we preferred, our teapots came out primed and ready, and with a cube of sugar, and a dash of cream, we were sipping away the afternoon talking about our futures, celebrity news, and whatever else 4 girls at a tea house can think of.
Shortly after the tea arrived, so did plates of sandwiches– cucumber and mayonnaise, mustard and tuna, and cream cheese and salmon.
Spending our afternoon with tea and crumpets, scones, and lively banter. It was the perfect break from finals to get a quick reset, and then head home and charge on.
The flower petals interspersed with the sandwiches really was lovely.
Our final dish of the day, was a plate of scones with cream, jam and cranberries. After tea we headed home and here I am 1-8 page paper and 2-6 page papers away from the end of the semester. Hopefully, I can push through it, knock these out, and head home to see my nephew. I became an aunt on Friday morning. eeee!!
