Creatures Big and Small

From one of my favorite books…

(Fred to Percy) “Oh, get out of the way, Percy. Harry’s in a hurry.”
(George adds) “Yeah, he’s off to the Chamber of Secrets for a cup of tea with his fanged servant.”
~ JK Rowling, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Starting the day with a cup of tea really gets one moving. Then throughout the day it serves other purposes.
  • On a cold day, tea warms.
  • On a warm day, tea cools (iced – we’ll talk more about this in the summer).
  • When agitated, tea calms.
  • When ill, tea soothes.

Today was a three cup day that began with Coconut Chai Green Tea and then two cups of black and orange pekoe blend.


In a previous post I mentioned collecting items from other American Girls. At the time we talked about clothes and pets. But I also collect other items, if they peak my interest.

The one item I have from Felicity’s collection is her Noah’s Ark toy. 

The set comes with an ark. It sounds like it should be wood, but could be made from a special type of plastic. The “cabin” section removes to show a hold where I can store the pieces and gangplank. The roof of the “cabin” also flips up too.

Additional pieces include Noah and his wife, 2 elephants, 2 camels, 2 horses, 2 sheep, & 2 pigs. It’s a lot of fun.
Felicity’s Noah’s Ark was introduced to her collection in 1991 as part of her holiday collection and in coordination with the book Felicity’s Surprise. It set was modified in 1996 and retired in 2007. I’m really glad I got this when I did.

I hope you are having a nice day.
Best wishes.
