Is there such a thing? I've spent the past few days pondering just why Julie would want to stop in and say "hi" as we barely know each other... I'm certainly not complaining! I've been checking email and facebook (uggh!!) multi times a day, but to no
avail... (I do have pills for anxiety... whether it's good or not, perhaps I should take one..?) I know that Julie told me perhaps the 29th or 30th, but dang it... I've heard nothing since Tues, and she was in Vegas! Ah well, to be young and carefree once
I've put the "cook ahead" thoughts aside today, and worked on my duvet... come ++++ or high water, I've GOT to get that finished... there are other projects waiting in the wings! Today, I focused on sewing, and while it might not "seem" that I got much done,
I do feel good about the progress I made! I now know that the remaining fabric will indeed be enough to finish the "under" side in the tan, which was my desire, tho I may have to piece together the corners. So be it, I guess, I just want the thing ready
to use by time of cooler weather! There is more than one choice as things stand.
Perhaps tomorrow I should make/freeze crepes, and in the afternoon go to the store for last minute "pick ups" in case the brunch actually comes together! I also have realized that I neglected to share one more item for the menu... I've perused recipes for
eclairs... and have to admit that I don't think that they're something outside of my abilities... One rec said to "pipe" the batter/dough onto baking sheets ( I have no pastry thing...) but others simply to drop by spoonfulls. I don't mind at all the thought
at all of cutting the top off to fill it... Trust, I've had a few colonoscopy's and doubt that I'd ever fill one that way! I see no reason for the filling to be "oozing" from the cut line! Best call Audie, and get her take..?
Then I pondered what if brunch fizzles as the girls won't be here by that time, how 'bout afternoon tea? Fruit filled crepes and eclairs would work out wonderfully, I would think! Even, perhaps, an English muffin on the side! Ah well, however it works, it
WILL all work out..! They are still "kids," afterall, on a trip that they may well NEVER take again!
So, friends, J went on yet another interview today... I SWEAR that we'll butt heads very soon if he doesn't find work! I would ask that you keep fingers/toes (and eyes?) crossed over the weekend... "Mayhem" doesn't seem to be solving my issues... Nor does
"feeding him to death..." I fear that the only way for me to get "the point" across, is to "go on strike" for a week or longer!
I'm guessing that I REALLY need to "decompress" some... guess maybe I'm having a bad day... Sorry to rant on like this, but before I forget I've go a couple pix of the duvet to post :)
Be well, friends...
