A Spot of Tea for Krista

Hubby came down with a cold and of course he graciously shared it with me.  I have so many things I wanted to get done this week but they'll have to wait until I'm over the sniffles and lack of energy.  Today is my daughter's 21st birthday and I had planned to do some baking and prepare a nice birthday tea for her.  I am so lucky that she is such a girly girl who still enjoys whimsy, beautiful things, and spending time enjoying a cup of tea.  I didn't have the energy to do everything I'd planned but we were able to share a spot of birthday tea with her before she left for her dinner date with her boyfriend.  Like me, she loves all things pink.

We settled on an ice cream cake and it was very good.  My son questioned the tea with the ice cream cake but quickly realized that it was very delicious and the flavour complimented the cake quite nicely.

Krista is out enjoying the rest of her day at a (new to her) authentic Mexican  restaurant.  She just called to tell me how delicious it is and that she's ordered a Margarita with her meal and assures me that she's having only one...She's 21 today, my son turned 18 last week, where has the time gone?

I think I'll go put the kettle on and curl up with a good book.

When twilight drops her curtain down
And pins it with a star,
Remember that you have a friend
Though she may wander far.

--Lucy Maud Montgomery
Anne of Green Gables
