A Phoenix Burning

The Weekend

First, let me say a Happy Belated Memorial Day to all of you…and a very sincere thank you to all our Veterans who have, and continue to keep us free and safe.

Our weekend was delightfully busy.  Our dear friends (The Mokturtles) came for a weekend visit and we had a great time catching up on all the news.  My parents came to watch our kids, and the four adults got out for a FABULOUS dinner—the best one I’ve had in a very, very long time.  If you ever happen to go to this restaurant, be sure to order the Sliced Tenderloin Bordelaise.  It is TO DIE FOR!!

I was also introduced to loose leaf tea!  I will never buy a teabag from a grocery store again.  Mrs. Mokturtle brought me to an adorable little tea shop that happens to be local to me.  She’s been mail-ordering tea from this shop for years, and I had no idea it even existed…go figure!  I was KICK-ing myself for not bringing my camera.  It is in an old warehouse so the building is quite unique, and the tea wall with it’s hundreds of paintcans filled with tea screamed to be photographed.  No worries…I will go back, and next time I will bring my camera!  (If you are interested in a brochure, let me know and I will e-mail you the info.)

The ladies managed to sneak out to Barnes and Noble to buy $260 worth of books for Mrs. Mok to use for her work with preschoolers.  Llama Llama Mad at Mama by Anna Dewdney is a must-have!  And the guys managed to sneak out with Big Girl and Little Girl to go see Star Trek at the theatre.  They all gave it a thumbs up!

And of course, no Memorial Day weekend would be complete without attending the parade.  Here are a few photos from this year’s event.

Fabulous friends, fabulous weekend, and now a busy week ahead.  Back to business.
