Good stuff, good friend and tea for two

- Friend Laura made some cream cheese stuffed muffins and shared a couple, still warm from the oven.  They made a delightful little breakfast and I loved how pretty it looked on my blue and white dish.

- Staying out until after 10pm on a weeknight for a lecture and late evening dinner.  The best part was just hanging out with friend Leisa, the walk to our cars on a cool autumn night, and the chuckle we had over being out so late.  :)

- And waiting in a line at the drug store for 10 minutes, just to buy bandaids, when the woman in front of me suddenly breaks into a soft shoe dance as the musak in the sound system in the store starts playing "Tea for Two."

I love it when someone gives me a reason to smile.  I hope that happens to you this weekend, too!  Hope it is lovely!

What a treat. I would have smiled very loudly to see another customer break into dance in the pharmacy. Thank you for this image - and have a great weekend.

Leonora said...

Oh that plate makes a pretty picture!

10:00, my, my. Back in college our evenings would just begin at 10:00. Nowadays I'm snoring loudly by that time.

Wow 10.00pm for me is very early! Well I am a dj. :D Also I often do late night shopping at midnight.

I've never had cream cheese stuffed muffins, but they sure look good!

Have a lovely weekend Lynn!

Beautiful breakfast! What was the lecture about?

Joanne said...

So many treats in this post! Those muffins your friend made you look delightful!

Thanks for the magical telling of these events. I love the beauty and joy you find in small events.

Elephant's Child -

I also loved that the two women with her weren't embarrassed at all. :)

Leonora -

I know - same here. I'm rarely out past 8pm during the week (or the weekend, for that matter.)

Joe -

I get up at 5am Monday - Friday, so I get sleepy very early. Otherwise - I enjoy late night, too.

Lynn said...

Sage -

It was good, too. :) "Learning to Walk in the Dark" - lecture by Reverend Barbara Brown Taylor. She is writing a book on that topic, in which she explores the theological side of darkness and how darkness has gotten a bad reputation.

Joanne -

They have those same muffins at Starbucks - she got her hands on the recipe somehow.

happygirl -

Thank you - it's there for all of us.

Hi Lynn - sounds a good week - and that soft-shoe shuffle would have made me smile too .. Hilary

Lynn said...

Riot Kitty -

I want to hear about it. :)

Naomi -

I'm a former night owl - the last few years I've turned into the opposite. I wish I could stay up late.

Hilary -

I hope you had a nice weekend. :)
