At the kitchen store in Papeete, on impulse I bought a couple decorative china cups and saucers that were on sale. Behan Gifford on Totem from Seattle came by for tea. We had tea (in a teapot) on a tray, sugar lumps and canned cream from Mexico. (There's great cream in the stores here, I should buy that and toss out the Mexican stuff.) It was a change from the mugs or insulated car mugs we normally use, and a reminder of "gracious living" back home.
Behan remarked that the blue and white shell motif on the cups looked like the tile trim SYC ladies rooms. Actually, they match a plate I bought in Friday Harbor, which of course, is in storage.
We're easily entertained.
