Out of focus, but still I like it.
Recently three friends I worked with at Jantzen Swimwear
in the 1980's came for tea in the gardenhouse.
It was a special time of renewing friendship,
sipping tea, and nibbling on pineapple upside down cake,
berry compote, and madelines.
The tea we sipped was a lovely first flush Darjeeling
called Castleton Moonlight and a Rose Tulsi herbal.
The date had been set several months ago,
but when the time came the roof on my house was being
torn off and replaced. All week I struggled,
should I cancel the tea time or suffer through the noise?
The gardenhouse is like a little cocoon, so I decided to continue on.
How happy I did.
Amazingly the guys on my roof worked on the front of the house,
so our tea time in the back of the yard had peace, friendship,
sipping, and nibbles.
Friendship over the years is so special.
Getting to share that friendship with 3 creative, strong women
was the very best.
