I now know I have lost my mind. Totally. Completely.
I have a cute little cup and saucer and a teapot, both with violets on them. Last night I saw them on a top shelf in my kitchen and I remembered that I thought I had bought a little sugar bowl to keep them company. I was picturing them together on a little tray for my solo tea parties (meaning that I am the only guest) which I never really get around to having, but I always think it is a nice self-indulgent thing to do.
Where was the sugar bowl? Did I buy it at the antique store I was in recently? Did I buy it on ebay? Didn't I put it up on that shelf already? Did my husband reach up there for something and accidently knock it down? Yes, maybe that was it. (As he had already done that with one of my favorite teapots.) He was probably afraid to tell me and he cleaned up the pieces and won't admit to it. Ok. So now I have not only lost my memory, but I am also paranoid.
I went to sleep thinking about that darn sugar bowl and awakened still wondering about how I could possibly forget whether I bought one or imagined it.
Just now I was reading my e-mails and there was one from a seller from an "Etsy" shop asking me a question about the sugar bowl I ordered. WHAT??!! Do you mean that I have not lost my mind - well, maybe partially. I checked my Etsy account, and yup, there it was. A sweet little violet covered sugar bowl still waiting to be delivered.
