Fact is, this tea party's got nothing to do with Boston or Paul Revere and the Raiders! It's all about Anna's Tea Party. Goodness knows I'm giddy! She actually asked if I'd like to participate this year. Would I? Is pig pork? Are grits groceries? I'm honored to have even been considered seeing as how I've been MIA. So, thank you, Anna. And you know I have a story that coincides with the event. Right? I'll keep it short. Here goes.
I didn't buy this magazine the first time I saw it. By the time I decided to go for it they'd sold out. I had to order it. It arrived last week. JC's diabetic. Cake for two is too much. It's too hot for baking. So why on Earth . . . ?
The a/c went out again. First there was another brown-out. It was 97º F in Katy today. I lost my temper with the repairman. That's two strikes against me, but in my favor, I don't perspire like most people; when my thermostat fails, I fail. In the end he made amends, we shook hands and I thanked him. He charged the unit with freezer fluid, and JC and I headed to the Black Walnut for a meal. But, and this is the best part aside from having cool air again: JC checked the mail and guess what.
There was mail from across the pond! Scre-e-e-a-m! There was good news from the post office box before that too. Dodson, D. sent a fun postcard that bore good news. My day just kept getting better. The Black Walnut was crowded but there was a parking space right in front. JC said they knew I was coming. I got one of the last slices of red velvet cake for dessert. In a recent post Susan reminded me of The Velveteen Rabbit, which is a book that got me through some difficult times back in Colorado. You get where I'm going with this, right?
Fast forward to being back home with a full stomach, some red velvet cake, and a lipstick red package. Oh, oh, oh! The joy that jumped out and hugged my neck! I gotta tell you, when I finally got that box open I was happier than Cinderella when she finally got those glass slippers off her feet. I've been invited to another tea party!
The only thing I removed from my box is the awesome invitation! I can hardly stand it! The box is chock full of goodness and awesome things to share. So stay tuned!
