  2. Carolyn: I know. LOL. The hostess and other participants post on Tuesday. Many/most hostesses post the day before for some reason, and especially since I live in California, the timezone difference makes me have to post earlier. Plus, as you can see, I'm also participating in several Tuesday tea parties. :-)
