I am wealthy in my friends.
Yesterday was the day two of my best friends and I got together to celebrate the season. We had
planned to meet at the new Thai restaurant in town. The weather, however, was not cooperating. It was very cold and icy out. While the roads were clear, the parking lots were not. So, we decided to get Thai takeout. The Baker was kind enough to brave the elements and pick up food for us. He was also kind enough to make a dessert for us which I'll share in another post.
I have drawers filled with cloth napkins but could not resist these. They are so delicate and soft and were perfect for a simple table setting.
Notice the price for twenty five. That's right--30 cents. I picked them up last December at an antique shop in Chesterton. They aren't antique but, I'm guessing, mid-century "modern". I paid $3.00 for two packages. Still a bargain!!
We stayed in and warm while the tree sparkled and carols played. We also feasted on
Thai vegetable soup

Finally, a glance at the clock let us know we'd been dining, opening gifts and chatting for almost four hours!! Time passes quickly when you are with those you love.
Thank you, dear ones.
You are very special!
