Where has the week gone?

Do you realize it is the end of the week already??? Yikes!

Tomorrow I am going to a brunch group with our church ladies. We signed up to go and bring something, I am bringing orange juice. Then we meet at the church and the gal in charge tells us whose home we are going to! It is going to be so much fun! I think we have 3 groups. I don't know who will be in my group, but I know we will all enjoy it!

We went swimming after dinner at "Camp Geezer". That is what my dad calls their place. They have the swimming pool, big screen tv etc...A few years ago we even came up with a theme song. I will have to see if I still remember it and write it out for you. Our little guys loved the water! Not a bit afraid. We use real life vests for our non-swimmers. It allows them to float and to use their arms normally! Afterwards he climbed the pool stairs and took a tumble down them! It was a panic moment for us! But other than some scrapes, he was just fine!

I popped into a tea shop today. It was lovely. They have a bit of a store too. It is run by lovely, friendly british women. They were getting ready for a group to come. One lovely woman talked tea with Emily and I for a while and then gave her some british candies. In the C.S. Lewis book "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe", Edmund asks the White Witch for some Turkish Delight. Well, let me tell you, it is yucky stuff. Sort of like gummy bear in the middle with powdered sugar....the dear woman at the tea shop said that they say that Turkish Delight is for older people, "cause its easy on the teeth." ha ha ha. The chocolate flake is good, and the Maltesies too.

Ok, I guess I should sign off for now. Can you tell I am tired?


  1. I think Turkish Delight is an acquired taste!

    Thank you for visiting me today, and your kind comments.
    Wishing you a lovely weekend,


  2. Look forward to visiting your little Tea Room within the month!

  3. I think you are right, Lidy!
