The Remains Of The Day

This is all that's left of a wonderful tea party spent with my daughter and our friend Linda, to celebrate Lindsey's 21st birthday.

The remains of this day has left me feeling happy. My chicken turned 21 today and she was gracious enough to spend the afternoon with me and Linda, a dear friend and relative.

We enjoyed several slices of quiche each and many, many cherry tarts, each.

A gift of a poem was written and read by Linda that made us all laugh. Lots of little presents were opened...

and handmade truffles were shared.
