Last Tuesday I made the drive 'downriver' to my hometown to have lunch with six of the gals I went to high school with. The husband of one of the gals is in Hospice Care with stage IV lung cancer. I thought she could use some cheering up so I made her a care basket [tea, mug, Walker's shortbread, beverage napkins, and a 'promise book' with uplifting scriptures from the Bible.]
When I was in the store selecting items for the basket, I saw a commemorative tin of tea with Queen Elizabeth's picture on it, so it went in my shopping cart too.
But what really made me happy was finding a glass shamrock dish for $3. Three down and three to go! I think I'll reach my goal by next St. Paddy's Day.
Afterwards we went to White Castle for some hamburger sliders. We haven't been there in a few years and it sounded good. It's a place your digestive tract won't allow you to visit too often since they're notorious for heartburn. ;-) We washed them down with big glasses of unsweetened iced tea. June is National Iced Tea Month, and today is National Iced Tea Day.
I ordered a book titled, The Corner, for my son, Steve, and two mothproof storage bags, and both arrived this week. I can hardly wait to give the book to Steve. The Corner refers to Michigan and Trumbull Avenues in Detroit where the old Detroit Tiger baseball stadium used to be.
And last but certainly not least, a sweet lady from church gave me a cute teapot shaped mail or file holder - or possibly a spice rack - and a teacup candle. Thanks, Lisa. They're so cute.
