It started out with warmer temperatures and sunshine....
Who knew Tuesday was going to be such a nice day around here? When I arrived home there was a surprise waiting for me. My sweet friend Susie sent me this lovely package.
Inside were so many goodies....white tea, mint tea (my favorite), gourmet candy sticks (which I'll have to hide since they are getting way too much interest from my gang) and many items with the "Home Sweet Home" fragrance from Yankee Candle (also my favorite).
When I unwrapped this exquisite teacup, the tears came. I admired this on Susie's blog, and being such a dear, she included it in the care package. This little teacup will be cherished forever.
I have spoken of Susie here before. We met through the blogs and there is a special connection that I'm not sure either of us can quite explain. We have a lot in common, and perhaps that was the beginning of our friendship. All I know is, I feel so blessed to have met Susie....her kindness and love mean so much to me. Thanks, Honey, for everything.
Tuesday was also a red letter day because I took my mom out for her first outing since coming home (not including the doctor). We went to a sweet place here in our town that celebrates Fat Tuesday with a Polish buffet, complete with accordion player.
We had a wait, so Mom is checking out the "to go" menu.
The entertainment...a nice young man who really knew his way around an accordion.
Mom had a good time....she loves the music. We went for a short ride after lunch, and Mom was pooped the rest of the day.
Tuesday was a great day for me, and I have grown to really appreciate every good thing that comes my way....you know, simple pleasures. I hope you are enjoying a simple pleasure or two this week.
