Tea with a friend

Hello my Friends! New year, new stuff to share!
Over New Years we went back to our home town for a visit; it's 2 hours from where we live. When we go there, we always stay with my sis-n-law. We got to visit with my mother-n-law and nephew and his wife. I try to visit my dear friend Margaret when I am in town (this doesn't always happen) but this time it did! Margaret and I have been friends since the 5th grade; let's see that has been.....35 some years?! Hmmm... hate to think it has been that long! We talk on the phone almost every morning. Well, when I got to Margaret's house to visit and to see her new puppies, (Boston Terriers) I walked into the dinning room, and on her lovely dinning room table sat a tray with 2 beautiful teacups and lots of wonderful goodies to eat! She had planned for us to have tea! I was so excited! Tea is one of many things Margaret and I have in common; she has the most beautiful collection of 3 legged tea cups I have ever seen! You can imagine my excitement when she told me I could take a tea cup home! We had a wonderful afternoon; I hated to see our teatime come to a close. This was a great way to start off the New Year!
Have a happy tea day everyone!
