A Surprise Visit

Yesterday morning I received a surprise phonecall.
My girlfriend, Mona, made an impromptu trip from Lebanon to Kuwait.  So instead of walking, I  baked sprinkle cookies using my favorite recipe from Mimi's Kitchen.
This is when my handmade creations come in handy for a last minute gift.
We met for iftar (breaking the fast) at my favorite Italian restaurant, Villagio.
During Ramadan, restaurants open around 6:00 p.m. and dinner is served once the sun sets and the call to prayer is heard.
We had a delicious meal and then headed over to Costa Coffee at Marina Mall for a latte and espresso.
She's here for a week so we have a lot of catching up to do.

Hope you are having a great day in your corner of the world.

How lovely to have a surprise visit from a good friend.....know you two will have a good time.

I only get to sip Costa when in airports it seems - we have mainly Starbucks (of course!) and varied independent coffee vendors. I love coffee in the mornings and then usually tea after noon.

Enjoy each day with Mona - I have some Lebanese friends here, they own the best bakery and restaurant in town, and I love Lebanese food!

Hugs - Mary

Girlfriends are the best! I'm headed to Virginia tomorrow to visit my dearest one. We haven't seen each other in over two years. There will be some walking, hanging out with her beautiful horses, a little crocheting, and of course lots of eating.

Have a great weekend!

Phyllis said...

It's me again. I just read your previous post about the trellis scarf. Where can I find the pattern?

Thanks :)

How lovely to have a friend visit! You said that you were going 'stir crazy' with Ramadan and the heat meaning you didn't want to go out, I do hope that your time together will be full of friendship and laughter. Joan

What a lovely surprise call to get, I love catching up with friends at any time, it's especially nice when you haven't seen each other in some time. Mona is such a lucky lady to get such a thoughtful gift made by you Tammy, those sprinkle biscuits look very tasty. I hope you've had a lovely time catching up. :)

Oh, how fun to have a friend visit! Your gift was so sweet and it is handy to have those little bags on hand. I should do that as they are so cute. Continue to have fun and enjoy your friend's visit!
