just wanted to let y'all* know that we cancelled the Seniors Blind 45 card game. but we are heading down to the community centre at 9:30 in order to decorate and set up the hall for our friend's 75th birthday. she is a very sweet lady and the heart of this community. and she yells at us when we miss bingo on sundays. and this sunday - we are definitely missing bingo!
we spent the last 3 hours making a veggie salad for the BD party tomorrow. it consists of blanched broccoli, cauliflower**, snow peas, carrots, cilantro, mayonnaise, sour cream, parsley, basil and salt and pepper. hopefully some of the people here will try it - they don't eat very well around here and we are really trying to change that! we also made a cranberry-pear sauce with fresh-picked cranberries that a friend of ours had, fresh pears from the island, grated cinnamon sticks, grated whole cloves and the zest of a giant orange - it is delicious. lastly, we made ginger-lemonade...i hope people will put down their cups of tea and try some! i will let y'all* know how it goes in a few days.
i have stopped in on a few blogs today - and i promise to catch up on everyone's blogs on sunday.
i hope that y'all* are well and next week we will be back to normal posting. i have a few half-finished posts ready to go up - they just need some refinement.
now off to go and get dressed to go to the hall to set up for the party. i pray we will only be there for an hour or so. we are both really, really tired.
we normally look a lot younger than our ages (me:40, jambaloney: 45), but today we are looking like we have been dragged behind a truck for an hour or two.
i promise to visit y'all* soon!
* "y'all" - a word i took from my dear friend MDR. check out his blog. it's listed in the blogroll on the right!
