The fall weather finally arrived. Of course, it was just in time for my in-laws’ visit; after we’d assured them that Charleston in October is beautiful. Lesson learned, don’t make promises over which you have no control. We had a great time, it just wasn’t as pleasant as we had envisioned.
Confession: I love company. I love people, but man do they wear me out. If I’m around people for several days, there comes a point where I just have to hide from everyone for a few minutes here and there or I begin to feel like I’m drowning.
Am I nuts?
Also, my house smells like fried food, thanks to a certain someone spilling cooking oil when he volunteered to help clean up after Wednesday’s dinner. I need to do a deep clean to find everywhere it went, but here I sit posting.
Oh, and I also totally cheated and bought frozen meatballs because I’ve got to have some crockpot friendly meals for the insane week that starts tomorrow. Silly, but I felt guilty and conspicuous in Walmart earlier.
Site Admin Stuff:
The holidays are coming and I plan tweaking this year’s Countdown to Turkey Day. To accomplish this, I’m hosting an early Thanksgiving dinner at my house. Of course this means my husband’s work schedule had to go completely bonkers just when I need to start preparing for the feast. Hopefully it will just help me hone the plan. The goal is to give readers of this site a workable plan for preparing for hosting a large holiday dinner. With forethought, even a novice cook can pull off a respectable company meal. It’s a matter of being prepared and knowing when to ask for help.
So stay tuned, Countdown to Turkey Day starts November 1st.
