Time For Tea

Christmas came a bit early this year to the house. The Hubmeister had wanted the new Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty and I had managed to make enough in cash tips to get it outright, so I went and bought it and gave it to him early. I just needed to do something nice for someone who I knew would appreciate it, because it's been one of those kinds of weeks at work, ya know?

When I gave it to him, he was happy and excited and then immediately asked me why I didn't buy something for myself. I laughingly replied that Gamestop doesn't sell the kinds of things I am interested in. I told him that if he really wanted me to buy something for myself, I'd see what Stitcher's Paradise would have in stock when I go to the Wednesday stitch in this week. I didn't quite make it that far, as I remembered seeing a tea cup at Barnes & Noble and wanted to get one. Last night I stopped by on my dinner break and instead of getting the lidded tea mug, I purchased the tea service for one! I even got the matching reusable shopping bag! :D I am so, so, so excited about it! And to do things up good and proper, I also bought some holiday tea and an Agatha Christie book, Hercule Poirot's Christmas! Woohoo!

Time for shopping notes and pics! :D

Editor's Note: All purchased at Barnes and Noble, with the exception of the cookies, which were purchased at Von's.

Tea Set: Fringe Studio in Holly Rose

Book: Hercule Poirot's Christmas by Dame Agatha Christie

Today is my Friday. All of my chores are completed for the week, which means I get to sit around all weekend and stitch! Woohoo! I am really, really hoping to get the Prairie Schooler Christmas Cabin finished this week instead of next. That would be quite the feather in my cap!

At any rate, I need to bolt for the door. Need to go get ready for work, so I can get my weekend started! :D

Hope everyone is having a wonderful week! :)
