The main part of my mother’s birthday gift was High Tea at Prince Of Wales in Niagara-On-The-Lake. I’ve been wanting to do this for so many years. Our reservation was 12:30, so we arrived just after 10:00 and wandered around the town. Of course, we had to stop at the Home Bakery to get Jan her usual Scotch Pies and mild sausage rolls. Yum! I also bought Moon Cheese. I had never heard of it until I saw it on Food Factory last week. It was delicious:
It was pouring rain while we were walking around so there weren’t too many people, which was nice. We had no issue spending time until our High Tea. Once we got there, all I can say is wow. I completely recommend High Tea at Prince of Wales. The atmosphere was perfect, the food was perfect – it was all perfect. First, we each had to choose our tea:
I chose peaches and cream and Jan chose Heavenly Cream, which was an creamy earl grey (I looked it up). Jan is not a big fan of flavoured tea. I loved mine, and after a few cups, I tried Jan’s. It was amazing. Didn’t need milk or sugar. Then our amazing food arrived. I let them know this was a present for Jan’s birthday. They did this:
So sweet! The table looked like this:
The food was exceptional….warm scone, fresh pastry, homemade bread, wonderful desserts….perfect. We had so much food, we couldn’t eat it all so they kindly brought us takeout containers for the rest. We had a great dinner, sans the beautiful atmosphere. Although, we had the pleasure of dealing with this:
Another perfect and highly memorable moment!
That night, I continued reading my awesome book. Here’s a little book review for you. I’ve never read anything from this author, but I recently finished Nest by Terry Goodkind. I loved it! I think the reviews are lower than they should be. Anyway, I started an earlier book by him called Law of Nines. Loving it so far. About a third of the way through. There is a paranormal twist to it, so if you’re not in to that, this might not be your thing. I’m enjoying it though. I love it when I’m reading and this happens:
Update: went to visit our friend today. He has been moved to a rehab hospital to get therapy for his strength and speech. He’s doing so much better. We had a wonderful visit and looking forward to seeing him again soon.
Today’s symptoms: Was a little weak this morning. I took some meds that perked me up a little. Helped with the nerve pain that was shooting down my left arm all morning. Speaking of meds, I must share this with you. Since 2010, this is what my medication claim has been:
HOLY CRAP!!!!!!!!! All I can say is being sick is expensive!
