Cooking for all my sibs who are in town to clean out Mom's house. Ugh. Last night was just us and my brother and his wife so we did striploin, baby new potatoes, grilled zucchini and mushrooms, spring greens and just ice cream for dessert.

Tonight is a HUGE ham, cheesy scalloped potatoes, steamed green beans (or the last of my yellow ones if I feel generous), Joe's coleslaw and a LOT of wine and assorted other booze items for dessert. LOL! There will be 3 more sisters and one niece added to the mix tonight.

Saturday is likely going to be take out as we will all be too tired to move.

Sunday, turkey dinner with all the fixin's!

And thats MY weekend.

I'm working on my brick oven this weekend. I'm hoping to cap the dome by next weekend.

Swimming with my son, bath, dip & manicure for my puppy Peanut, start a batch of chili (some for dinner & some for the freezer), and more swimming with my son. Possible make a run to Blockbuster to rent a movie or two.
Finally things have started clicking for me, my knees, my elbows, my back, etc...

Sneezing. We're all sick with colds and sore throats.

painting, rototilling and planting

we are in the final stages of painting the exterior of the house

we hope by Sunday morning, it will be dry enough to get the rototiller into the garden; need to plant some annual flowers from seed and set in the star of the velds, plant the potatoes and sweet potatoes and maybe set in the tomatoes and basil.

I'll be inside all weekend at an interpreter conference. Today the meeting room was so cold some of the participants went to their hotel rooms on break and came back with the blankets off the beds!
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!
