My default

Wow, I've been trying since early this morning to do this

This weekend has been a strange combination of a blur and standing still. I didn't think Robert Vaughn's death would have effected by the way it did, but I find myself unable to concentrate for more than a few minutes. Albeit today is better than yesterday.

As is my want, I cooked. We are having friends to dinner tonight, so I took advantage of my mood yesterday and put together my lamb stew. While that was simmering, we put together Saturday night's dinner as well, Beef Carbonnade Flamande(or beef cooked in beer) a la Jacques Pepin. It was pretty yummy and we served it with mashed potatoes and mixed veggies. It kept my mind occupied and, of course, the kittens helped.

Now I need to go clean litter boxes, dust the living room and clean the guest bathroom and maybe then take a nice soak before everyone arrives. The menu is potstickers, lamb stew with fresh bread and baked apples. If you want to come, I'll set a place for you.
