Who Am I

I am a Tea Queen.

I sit quietly on my throne drinking Earl Grey or Vanilla Chai tea. No fidgeting or hostile pursuits.

My name is Michele, aka TeaShell. I fantasize about living in a remote cottage with my favorite people. Here’s a peek at the dream:

Outside, we have a hammock, veggies and herbs, ducks and a goat. Inside, exceptional internet connectivity, a dog and a cat, lots of books, and cozy warm-glow lamps. On the roof is the resident owl, on the walls geckos, in drawers a spider or two.

In my current reality I have special, beautiful souls who keep me awake and lively. We practice goofiness and talk quite a lot. There is an owl who visits regularly. There are geckos on the walls, enough spiders too. I’m working on the veggies and herbs. There’s a dog next-door, a cat that wants to adopt me, and a pet rat that won’t agree to that. I have enough books, but how can one ever have enough lamps?

Update: Have fallen head over heels in love with a boxer, Jack Russell, and mouse-eating cat. They come with the house I currently occupy. The cat paid no attention to the rat, the rat paid no attention to the dogs, and we pay lots of attention to all of them. Dear, beloved Roach the Rat, inspiration for one of my favorite blog posts, passed away on the edge of 16:55 on 11/01/2022, cradled in my youngest son’s hands.

Regarding my fantasy – I was told I’ll get it when I go to Heaven (it comes as no surprise to me that that is my destination) so I’m working my way there one day at a time.

I love chewy conversations and sinking my teeth into creative endeavors.

I am so very, very pleased to meet you.

Thank you for visiting my blog.

Cups of love and appreciation,

TeaShell Michele
