It’s early here in Idaho, 5:00 AM. I just want to remind everyone that D. S. Nelson is going to read my tea leaves and post the results on her blog today. Check out her blog at this link to see the results.
I may try posting my own blog update later today. I will check in with D. S. Nelson too, maybe there will be comments directed toward me.

I was invited to do something really fun by fellow writer and blogger D. S. Nelson. She’s a mystery writer, and her current project is a series called the Blake Hetherington Mysteries. You can check them out right here: link.
She does this fun bit called That Just Leaves Friday. It’s a play on the word leaves, referring to tea leaves. She reads her tea leaves and interprets them for everyone. Her word is tasseography, but I prefer tasseomancy. It sounds more mysterious. She honestly uses both words, but doesn’t tasseomancy sound so much cooler. Maybe it’s just fitting for the kind of stories I write.
I had just written a bit in Will ‘O the Wisp that’s similar to tasseomancy when I discovered her blog. I’ve been a follower ever since.
My assignment was pretty simple. First, have a cup of tea. I swirled the leaves three times and asked myself what I saw. I provided her with pictures and sent them to her, along with a description of what I saw.
My results will be posted on her blog this Friday. You should go visit her and follow her. Actually, follow her because she’s cool, but that way you won’t miss my reading either.
