I was able to visit with a friend earlier this morning and have some tea and conversation. What a treat from the regular working grind.
My friend has beautiful serving platter that I covet. This one is usually on the edge of the kitchen counter with a selection of fresh fruit. It was a wedding present from years ago. I too have wedding presents that I've treasured all these years. Warm fuzzy glow. No that I"m middle-aged, I feel this responsibility to pass along meaningful wedding and baby gifts. We live on a small cul-de-sac and two of my neighbors are expecting. I'll be doing some baby shopping soon.
The friend also has a cage full of budgies in the kitchen and a cute little dog named Tess. The budgies chirped in the sunshine and Tess sat on my lap and enjoyed a neck scratch.
Thanks for the time.
