Many of you know Stacia as "shy." In reality she has a touch of social anxiety and has fought panic attacks since the Quake and Tsunami in Japan. Crowded locations and shaky buildings are particular challenges.
She did a thing. She invited a friend and her sister over to play with the airbrush cake thingy. She made a small cake for us to serve with tea. She demonstrated the air brush tool. She had also made 2 8 layer cakes for the girls. She'd baked, frozen, crumb coated and frosted in the midst of my scone baking craze. ::snort:: After our study today, she finished school and set up an air brushing station.
We had plenty of leftovers from the women's ministry launch...in fact I can have drop-ins for tea at any point for the next few months and simply pull scones out of the freezer. Consider this your invite if you live locally. Stacia suggested no table clothes so her younger friend wouldn't worry about spilling. Frankly, I have no problem dealing with stained cloths, but she made sense, and this was HER thing! I am so thrilled to see how she was thinking of others, stepping out of her comfort zone and doing the hospitality thing. "Opening the door is an act of love." She's got it.
We moved some of the hot drink selections and the hot water pot to a little side table by the table.

FINALLY, they arrived in the driveway and were properly welcomed by Millie into our home! I will quit blathering about Polish Pottery. We are so happy this family has moved out to the valley, and it will be much easier to get together.
We enjoyed drinks and treats...played games and shared memes. Allie was home! GG decided to sit and read and had no need of me during the afternoon. Michael and Alex had Bible study and Michael brought home dinner. It was a great Friday afternoon - chicken and macaroni salad - which I was too full to eat. I don't think the girls did either. LOL
