Tea and a Movie


When I arrived at my friend Diane's house on Friday......she had "Tea" waiting for me.

I was thrilled when I saw how she had prepped the little table that we were going to eat at while we watched the movie she had wanted me to see so badly. I had never hear of the movie but it was very good and I absolutely enjoyed it.

It was called......"Ladies in Lavender" staring "Maggie Smith and Judi Dench."
I had never even heard of it before.
It was a VERY interesting story line and great ending.....it had one cuss word in it so I want to warn you because of course...it was the
"F-BOMB." Why they had to have that one word in it don't ask me....ugh!

This was such a special treat of a day. Even though I was SO tired that morning and would have liked to stayed home. I enjoyed myself so much.We had home made "Chicken Salad" over lettuce.....and a very good "Lemon Honey Tea" by the Republic of Tea, then for dessert....."Mini Cheesecakes" that Diane had made.

We even had a "Special guest".....look closely.....it's a little Brown Bone China Duck. I had bought Diane a box of "Red Rose Tea" one day and this was the "surprise" inside of the Tea. I looked high and low for this tea because I had heard of the "Bone china figurines" they had inside of it. And low and behold.....I found us both some boxes of it at a "Winn Dixie" near my home.

The day went great and we had a great time....

I have to tell you though....on my way home.....I was sitting in my truck stuck in traffic on a highly congested road not maybe 8 minutes from our house and was "rear-ended" by a car.
I couldn't believe it.

Long story short....ugh......I had damage to the bumper and the jar of the impact threw my lower back out and when I got home I immediately laid down on the couch and iced my back and went to sleep for a while.

All in all.....life is still GRAND and I am not going to complain because we have always been "over comers." And this will pass..
Even though it does get a bit wearisome at times!

The next few days are very busy for me....my younger son has to do some special "Dyslexia" testing for college....and I have to meet with my R.A. Specialist and the Research Group that wants to possibly have me participate in a new "Drug Study." I am praying for wisdom on that thing.

Miss Priss has to go to Alabama on a school Field Trip this week too....and she is still in a lot of pain and achey....I am a tad concerned about this so hopefully she will be okay. She just took a huge ice pack to bed with her. Ugh. Italian Boy's knee is still hurting him greatly so he has a Dr.'s appointment to see about that tomorrow.

Hopefully all will be well around here soooooon. We need a break! HA!

I will be back as soon as I am able to. I wish you all well.
Cheers!!

ThanX for stopping by my blog and taking a moment to comment. It's a pleasure to "meet" you. It seems you've had some harrowing eXperiences of late. What a blessing to have a friend with whom to share a lovely tea and relaXing reprieve.

OMG, rear-ended, after all the other stuff that happened to you.

But, if you can for a moment, get back to the nice things. I have never, ever, had a friend do a "tea" for me. My husband's niece and BFF did, however, take me to a tea at a lovely tea place in Meridian (suburb of Boise), Idaho. It was wonderful.

And, I love "Ladies in Lavender". I rented it from Netflix. I love those obscure (to us) British movies.
