Jigsaw puzzle and tea

“A time to look over our week, recall blessings great and small and pick our five favorites to share”

Cassia Cafe and Tea Room. I’ve been fancying this lovely place since I found it online. Finally I went and had steak and kidney pie. The green tea with milk and honey is divine.

CJ talked to me on the phone! “Mommy, I’m reading.”  The therapy sessions must have started taking effect.

Entertaining. Wednesday was a holiday and I had company over  which meant enjoying the added bonus of having my space especially clean and the fridge well-stocked. We were deep in girl talk late into the night.  When there’s no pressure and no tension that you’re still in pajamas at 11 AM, it’s a holiday indeed.

Work permit found! It was missing for days. I was worried sick thinking of the red tape I’d have to get through to get a new one. Just when I was ready to accept that, I found it underneath five pairs of sunglasses on the left side of one drawer.

Jane Austen jigsaw puzzle. It’s the most charming treasure I have bought so far. “Packaged in a book-like box, it features illustrations from the Regency era paired with quotes from Jane Austen’s beloved novels.”

      I lose remote controls all the time too. Sometimes it’s funny, sometimes I don’t smile anymore. Ah well, we find them, we don’t. Life goes on 🙂

  2. How exciting to hear that from CJ! I know you are thankful. Sounds like your Wednesday was very delightful; clean house; good food; girl talk. Fun! A Jane Austen jigsaw puzzle. I would love that. I love puzzles.

    I’m glad you found your permit. It is so frustrating when we can’t find something.

    Great news from CJ!

    I not only enjoy company when people come over but I enjoy the fact that my house gets especially cleaned for it. 🙂 Sounds like a lovely time.

    Glad you found your work permit!

  7. Susanne says:

    I hate when I can’t remember where I put something like that. Glad you found it just in the nick of time before you started to go through all the hassle of getting it replaced.

    I’m so excited for CJ. So glad you are starting to see improvement.

  8. Catherine says:

    Hooray for CJ! I’m so glad you enjoyed the tea room, and your evening with friends.

    It’s good that you found your work permit, and I hope you enjoy your puzzle!

    Those words from CJ were the BEST three words you could have heard all week! What a relief it must have been to find the work permit. I well know that feeling of panic when you’re looking EVERYWHERE for something that is lost.
