Tea Time with Tiffany #27 - Teaching winding down, & Advent successes and fails...

Morning all! Squeezed in right before a reference shift, we have this week's installment of:

Today I talk about teaching! End of the semester grading, minor annoyances, that sort of thing. :) Also Advent and Christmas preparation! What have I kept up with, and what have I neglected? View on!

A hair flip! :0

Items mentioned in this episode:
Oh, oh, before I forget! I mentioned at the beginning of the video that I had contemplated tossing in audio tea sessions sometimes. Like maybe I'll record something while I go out for a walk, or something like that. Would you all like that some weeks instead of a video? Let me know!

Otherwise, also let me know how your Advent is going, and how your Christmas preparations are shaping up! :)


  1. OMGOSH! I fell off the Christmas Novena wagon too!!! I have been quite diligent about my Magnificat reflections though, with the exception of yesterday - so, twins! Lucy (my new pup) is giving me a run for my money. She's certainly thrown my schedule off, so I am trying to go with it and settle into a new routine - hence the Advent promises made going haywire. I have a couple more embroidery projects to send out then I will take a vacation from the shop. I plan to create some new items to list for the new year, but you know what? That's SO far away to me, that I can't even brainstorm what all that will be! I love these videos because I feel like I still get to see you and have scones ;) love you!

  2. Girl! Yes, we are twins. :0 Adore that Lucy, the kids are so jealous of her cuteness in your home! It's exciting to contemplate the new year, we'll get there. And there will be together projects, for certain! I can't wait!

    I want a scone. :0

  3. When you posted the Christmas novena, I thought it was beautiful and decided that I would pray it this advent. However, I too fell off the wagon. I recently found Praying for Christmas with Pope Benedict XVI : An Advent Novena on my bookshelf (although it is more of a booklet). It has readings and a meditation for each of the days leading up to Christmas. I haven't used it before but no time like the present.

  4. Hi Melanie! OK, good to know that I'm in good company. :) The Pope Benedict booklet sounds beautiful! And yes, there is nothing saying that we can't pick up something after Advent has already started. One day at a time, right? So why not make each day meaningful, even if it's already a few weeks into Advent.


Thank you for commenting! I read and appreciate every single one, and I will respond to each one personally!
