As February Winds Down...

On Thursday, my hubby took me to a Henry Ford Health System facility in Detroit to get my first dose of COVID-19 Pfizer vaccine.  He got his on Wednesday, but since I was at Independence Village, we couldn't go together.  The clinic wasn't super busy, but there was a steady stream of people who had appointments, and it was well organized.

At first I thought I was going to be rejected for getting a tetanus shot seven days earlier, but after the nurse did some checking, I was given the green light.  It was painless and easy.  

After the shot, I was directed to another area where I had to sit for 15 minutes to make sure there was no reaction, and then I was free to leave.  I'll return on March 18th to get the second shot.  My arm is a little sore at the injection site, but I've had no adverse reactions.  Have you got your COVID shot yet?

My new Polish pottery arrived in the mail today - a teapot, luncheon plate and cup and saucer.  I may get the sugar and creamer later.  I photographed the box with the bashed in corner in case I needed proof for any damages. So much for marking the box with a red Fragile sticker!

Fortunately it was packed very good and nothing was broken. I'm pleased with my purchase.  When 'Fat Tuesday' rolls around next year I'll be able to eat my paczek on an authentic Polish pottery plate.  ;-)  The tea pot is very heavy and durable, and could easily be an everyday tea pot - like the Brown Betty in England.  It's not dainty or delicate, but I'm happy to add it to my collection.  As they say, variety is the spice of life!

A lot of research remains regarding tea in Poland.  They're supposed to be big tea drinkers, but online Polish tea brands seem to be mostly herbals.  I found a couple of black teas, but no greens yet.    

Tomorrow is a work day at The Whitney with 25 reservations for 'Mansion Tea'.  Looks like a busy day is on tap.   The Mansion Teas have been very well attended since we reopened the beginning of the month.  Please come visit us!

Have a nice weekend!


  1. We are one year too young to get the vaccine in my state. We can't wait so that we might be able to patronize businesses again.

  2. Have both of my shots. No real reaction other than some soreness.
    Love the Polish items.
