Day 2 of "May Photo A Day Challenge" : Morning Ritual
Morning tea and slices of buttered toast... this has been our daily morning ritual for as far back as I can remember! This stainless-steel tea-set has apparently been in my family longer than me! LOL!
My mom, dad, sis & I... none of us ever liked the Indian milky tea. We always preferred liquor tea, with very little milk. (Little, as in like 2 tsp milk in that full glass of tea liquor!) Very rarely, we find that we're out of bread in the morning. Then the toast-tray is replaced with a small plate of marie biscuits instead.
When sis & I were in school, we naturally weren't allowed to start our day with tea, but even then, this tea-tray started the day for mom-dad! We even had tea-cozies for the tea-pot back in Kanpur, 'coz we used to have extreme winters there, and the tea got cold before we could pour it out into the glasses!
Ironically, this "morning ritual" was also the very last "normal" family-ritual my mom shared with us, before she passed away in Jan 1997. (Details here)
