Last week I had a birthday.
I went out and bought myself a cake and some flowers.
Came home and put 6 candles on the cake.
One for each decade.
(I didn't want to burn the house down.)
Lucille, my sister by choice, knows me well.
She knows that two of my favorite things are tea and birds.
For my special day she gave me the lovely Audubon porcelain tea pot (with infuser).
And, two mugs with spoons.
I'm a very lucky girl.
When I blew the candles out, I sent a special message up to the stars.
"I miss you and love you and I'm trying hard to LIVE."
The cake was a red velvet chocolate cake with cream cheese icing.
I had it for breakfast several days!
It was not on my diet, but birthdays come only once a year.
Thanks to our tea party hostesses.
These are just a few of the tea parties in the Land of Blog.
"Strange how a teapot can represent at the same time the comforts of solitude
and the pleasures of company."
