My weekend started out with Tea with some friends I hadn't seen in a long time.
Saturday some friends and I gathered at Jane's home , a co-worker and friend, that we worked with years ago.
It was so much fun, for us to be able to see the others, again after such a long time. Jane and I decided it was time, so we planned to have a small Tea and share memories.
Here we are at work, remember this is in the early 90's,
I'm on the right and she's in the middle.
Jane and I have been friends since 1992. We've shared a lot of ups and downs in our lives.
I arrived early to see if I could help with getting the table ready, of course she had everything under control.
The table was all set and ready, so she told me to sit for a moment, she had written a poem and wanted to read it to me.
A Friendship Tea "The cup of Tea I shard with you"
by Jane Setzer
Today as I awaken the sun said to me, Jane, wouldn't this be a lovely day to have some friends for tea? Yes, I smiled and answered, I truly do agree;
this would be the perfect day to share a cup
Call up my friends and tell them that 'One' will be the time -
leave all your cares and worries behind,
just come and clear your mine.
I'll make some homemade goodies and they will be my best,
for everything must be just right for my
Bring out the China dishes, put flowers all around
Oh this will be the Grandest Tea-
the talk of the town!
Pretty cloth's on the table, lovely napkins for our laps.
We'll sip and laugh for hours, so much to talk about!
And when our party is over and my day is through-
I'll smile as I remember the cup of tea,
I shared with you!
Even thought we didn't think of it as a Valentine Tea, Jane had her home all decorated.
Each guest arrived and we met them at the door with hugs of joy! Nikki on the left, then Sandy, myself and Jane! Someone had to take the photo, so Jean isn't in this one. So here she is at the table with Sandy and Jane! Jean our employer, and Pharmacist.
We enjoyed our Tea and all the food, then we enjoyed looking at old photo's of 'back in the day'!
Now I didn't get on the floor, if I had I wouldn't have been able to get back up.
We had such a good time, that we decided to do it again in a few weeks with more friends from the pharmacy.
