Monday I had the pleasure of meeting a dear friend for lunch - actually she's more like a second daughter since she's just three months younger than my daughter. We met at P.F. Chang's at Somerset Mall in Troy, MI
I got there a little early before the lunch crowd began to arrive, so I took some inside photos. A few minutes later all the empty tables were filled, and the place was bustling with activity.
I ordered a pot of White Tangerine tea to sip before Ruth arrived.
Predictably, I ordered my favorite, Sweet and Sour Chicken with Brown Rice.
Ruth's mum still lives in England, and when Ruth was visiting her last summer she sent back another Rington's Tea Caddy for me [pictured below]. Isn't it lovely? It went on the living room display shelf with the other Rington's tea accoutrements she's given me. Thank you, Elizabeth!
Ruth and I had a lot of catching up to do, and before we knew it almost three hours had lapsed. What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon. I'll soon be writing about an honor that was bestowed upon her husband.
