You won't be hearing a lot from me this afternoon. I'm actually taking the afternoon off to prep for some friends coming over for dinner. I'm trying out a 'new to me' recipe and they're agreed to be my guinea pigs. We are having coconut prawns and chicken satay to start (with Prosecco), followed by a chopped salad with pear and blue cheese. The entrée is Chicken Alfredo (I know, I know) and Chinese broccoli with a nice Sauvignon Blanc. Dessert is strawberry shortcake and port. It should come together pretty quickly.
TBG helped me hit some of the trouble spots on the carpet, just to be sure, but everything else is ready to go. The laundry is spinning away, so that will mean fresh throws for the living room Hey, amethyst_witch! I bought some dryer balls. I'm going to give them a spin (no pun intended)!
Otherwise, life hurries on. Renewals and sustaining membership are coming in and we are starting to claw our way out of the red once again (Non profit and proving it daily). It's nice to be able to breathe again. Now to come up with the bucks for the new backflow preventer installation that the City says we MUST have. It's always something...
Keep your chins up, my friends. The weekend is coming!
