From My Corner of Michigan

Monday my hubby and I drove to 12 Oaks Mall in Novi [30 miles from where I live] to buy a pair of Clarks shoes for work.  With so many stores closing and malls becoming deserted, it was nice to see 12 Oaks thriving and bustling with shoppers.   I didn't see any vacated stores.

Walking through the mall we came across Totally Tea - a bubble tea kiosk, so I had to take pictures.

I've only had Bubble Tea once in Victoria, British Columbia.  Bubble Tea originated in Taiwan in the early 1980's.  Its tapioca balls make it a unique tea-based beverage, comparable in price to Starbucks specialty tea beverages.  Do you like Bubble Tea?

Just before leaving the mall I noticed Penney's had some Easter tabletop accessories on clearance, so I had to take a peek.  I found the cutest wooden bunny napkin rings 60% off, so some came home with me for next Easter.  Six for $20 was a bargain!

Today my hubby and I went to P.F. Chang's for lunch.  I didn't take a picture of the restaurant because I've done that before.   Nor did I take a picture of our Lettuce Wraps and Sesame Chicken, because I've done that before too.  What was new today that I've never photographed was the Oshibori disposable wipes that our server brought to our table before we began our meal.

I don't know if this new amenity at P.F. Chang's is due to the COVID virus, but I thought it was nice. The server brought the unwrapped disk to our table in a small bowl.  It was about the size of a nickel but thicker, and when she poured hot water over it, it immediately expanded.

Below is the expanded wipe before we unrolled it to wipe our hands.  Have you used these at a restaurant before?

Today's fortune cookie said: "A change in plans will lead to a rewarding adventure."  We'll see!  ;-)
