The day that was a very good day.

Some days are just banner days. This one was one of those days. I consumed many things (which is not supposed to make you happy, but it was very satisfying, nonetheless.). We started the day off by picking up the matching ottoman to the couch. HUZZAH. This is how that looked:

New ottoman!

I didn’t even turn on the TV. Who needs the TV when you’re floating on a cloud? It’s super dreamy.

Next up, a surprise birthday tea party Johanna organized with her niece for my new-to-me friend, Aleisha. We went to The Little White House in Langley.

Delightful.The three tiered tray was stacked high with many flavourful and lovely delicacies – tiny quiches, egg salad in croissants, cucumbers on fresh, warm, brown bread, sugar cookies with lavender inside and teensy cupcakes with minty frosting. The tea we had today was Earl Grey Creme Tea. When mixed with some cream and a cube of sugar it tasted like the most delicious, warm Creamsicle ever made.

It was very decadent and we all agreed that every bite was awesome.

On the way home, we made a stop at Black Pudding, a British store in Langley. Happily, they had this sign up:

Haggis!Yum. Haggis.

I didn’t buy any haggis, but I did pick up some stickers with Winston Churchill’s quotes, like:

We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.

That’s an excellent reminder.
