2016 was a glorious year

 Today is New Years Eve. I would like to take this time and say "Good Bye. "

2016 was a glorious year for me.
It was my first year of retirement. I have accomplished much and I am very pleased with my accomplishments

 Along the way, I have met many new friends with an appreciation for my passion for Victorian fashion and the love for Tea. 
I introduce them to the history of tea and the proper way to enjoy a good pot of tea.
 I have been living my dream. I was successful in opening up a Tea Salon where I invite other to come and enjoy a step back in time, relax and feel a simpler style of life.
 As guests, I cater to them with tea and sweet delights, They come and read, listen to music and socialize the old fashion.

 In creating this little social club, I have my own concierge where folks can come to network, relax, and socialize while having a wonderful tea experience.
 It is quite rewarding  knowing I have creating a place that is so badly needed in today's hustle and bustled times.
 I hope that 2017 will bring more good fortunes.

Baked Apple and Mincemeat

This is a delightful treat that is fast, inexpensive,and can be served at your next tea party. It has been a family Christmas traditional treat.



Cut the top off an apple, scoop out the middle and full with mincemeat. Cover with the apple top, sprinkle with brown sugar and bake in oven until apple is soft.
Serve with whipped cream, or my favorite ice cream!
Enjoy!

Back To Work After Christmas Celebrations

Good day ladies and gentlemen. On this wet and dreary Tuesday, I wish you strength to endure this first day back to work from the Christmas holiday celebrations. I totally remember, as if it was yesterday, how it feels. Even though I have been retired for one year. I still have a feeling and a passion for my fellow working friends.
 "HAVE A GOOD DAY MY FRIENDS"!
