We decided to go to the British Pantry for dinner
( my Octogenarian friend Lady Z who does not like to have her picture taken )
Lady Z is from Scotland and was excited to be in that British Isles atmosphere.
I was excited to have an evening with my friend. She is very wise, very kind, very honest ( and sometimes that hurts a tiny bit ) and ok, she is stubborn !
But I are not going to talk about the things we were talking about I are going to talk about a little act of kindness. There is another name for it, but I can't think of it right now ( You tell me and I will send you a treat :) )
Here is what happened.
A very cute and happy waitress, Sierra, took our dinner order and Lady Z decided to have some Crabbie Ginger Beer. I thought that sounded fun, so I order some too. She was very familiar with Crabbie, and since she had to go to Vancouver, B.C. to get it, she was surprised and happy to have a glass tonight.
I have never had Ginger Beer, but now I can say I have tried it. It is a little sweet and refreshing. We were enjoying our dinner when Sierra came by our table and said
" the couple in the corner just paid for your Crabbie "
What? Where are they? Why? Sierra just smiled and sure enjoy, when the bill came, no charge for beverages.
And we were all smiles.
And I was all smiles as I took Lady Z back home. I usually stay for a little visit, but I told her I had plans to get back home where my sister was coming to spend the night. So, she sent me home with a tartlet she had made for our evening treat, and the "May basket" she had refreshed with muffins and chocolates. I usually bring my grandkids around on May Day with a little basket of flowers and candy, but this year, I skipped it. It was rainy and no grandkids were available.
So, this morning we are having coffee and May Day treats from a very special lady.
|Muffins, one blueberry, and one chocolate chip|
Lesson : Do NOT forget to bring a May Basket to Lady Z next year, rain or shine.
I am full
I am happy
I am blessed
