Good morning on this first day of 2017. Yesterday I spent a couple of early evening hours with the birthday boy.
He spent a lot of his time cooking ribs for his guests, doing dishes, and keeping the table stocked.
Early on there was Jasmine as co hostess.
Looking lovely as usual she had helped with the cooking , the traditional Chocolate Mousse., and greeting visitors.
Les . Anne and I were there early with Patty and Greg Cindy had to work. .
They both turned to talk to Was as I snapped the picture.
There were more guest expected later but both Les, Anne and I chose to leave early do to the late traffic. I figured baby New Year could find his way in without me.
I was up three times with Brandy in the middle of the night to let her outside. The last time I started this.
Yes taking things down.
Also gathering containers.
I will start to disassemble decorations today.
Cindy and David think I’m nuts because usually I leave things up for a few weeks but this has been a very difficult, stressful time and I don’t need reminders of things that have to be done. It will take me a couple of days to accomplish this task but when it is complete I can move on to more normal things.
I finished Patrica Cornwell’s Chaos and found it somewhat difficult to get through. Not that it was badly written but with every thing going on I had trouble following the story line. I have started Mary Higgins Clark’s novel I’ve Got You Under My Skin. I’m on chapter two.so it is just the beginning.
There has been a foul up in shipping of Cindy’s gift (another thing that I was responsible for that has me upset) and I waiting for the package to arrive. I haven’t heard from my doctor’s office about my ultra sound yet (another problem).
So as you can see I’m pretty f***ed right now and if I had a place to hide I would go there. But I will get busy, that will help, and I will get through this.
Have a go start of a brand new year.
