So, how are you doing? Ready?
I've ticked a few things off my list.
Two pies down, one to do in the morning (crust is made).
Linens ironed. Table set.
It will look so much better tomorrow with people around it.
The only hitch: Tomorrow is a bay area "spare the air" day, when we are not allowed to burn any wood. We heat our house with a woodstove and have no central heating. We have two elderly women who are easily cold coming to dinner. Do we go for the fire and risk our first official warning and the wrath of our politically correct neighbors or do we plug in every electric heating device we can find? It's always something. . . .
