It's been days since my last post, 11 in fact. I've been ill with a thoroughly nasty head cold during most of that time. Amazing to me that so much mucus can be produced inside one's head. I've begun to wonder if I am hollow, save for snot. Certainly, there hasn't been much brain activity during the sick time, among chills and fevers and fuzzy dreams, I have floated and slept and sneezed and blown. Too much detail?
The last few days of December were wondrous times spent with family, some company staying here. A party to celebrate Melanie's and Kelly's wedding with 35 close family and friends was a delight.
Gary made a huge fragrant pot of his signature spaghetti sauce, his homemade caesar salad dressing and hand done croutons and bacon bits. We fed everyone full to the brim, with decadent spaghetti, flavourful caesar salad, fresh garlic bread, rich Christmas sweets, and cakes (chocolate and carrot), attended with wines and holiday beverages.
Tim gave a speech and we all welcomed Kelly to the family. It was fun! It was yummy! And it was work! It was a warm and boisterous family party.
