Last night I visited a lovely book group in one town over from mine. They not only decorated and served Chinese food for the Lunar New Year, but also presented me with this red envelope (complete with the year of the rooster symbol!) and a note.
The only thing is that I completely spaced out and forgot to bring the desserts I’d promised. I couldn’t believe it and had just been in Chinatown that morning.
It’s never too late to bring someone desserts, so I’ll make up for it next week! Still, it’s a lesson learned, as all mistakes are. Next time I need to make a reminder when I make a promise!
