On Sunday, I met up with my good friend Kristi for our
weekly bi-monthly whenever we aren’t feeling lazy bike ride. We used to train together a LOT last year during triathlon season, but this year we are taking it easy for a number of reasons. But, mostly it’s just my own laziness. We have an urban adventure race we are racing in on June 27th, so it’s time to get serious again.
Kristi showed up to our ride with a shopping bag in hand and said it was a little gift for me. Oh, how I love gifts! She had recently cleaned out her storage building and came across a little something she thought I would like.
She was wrong. I didn’t like it…I LOVED it!
After she acted silly and said I didn’t have to keep if if I didn’t like it (HA! Whatever!), she explained that it was a delft plate from the Netherlands. It’s a Delftse Pauw piece and is hand-painted and numbered.
A friend who can cook AND gives you gorgeous clayware? What more could a girl ask for? Thanks for being there, Kristi!
