Our Pastor's Open House went very well last night! The food came together just fine, but as I suspected, there was a thing or two I forgot to plan - of course. I forgot to get cups ready, and those are pretty necessary when you're having cider, coffee, and tea, you know. So I dug out my china teacups from the set passed down to me from my mother - delicate, fine white china - to use with very pretty, although paper, plates. One of our men gave up on the tiny delicate cups and went into the kitchen and got a mug! LOL It makes me feel good that our people feel enough at home in our house to go and get a mug when they need one.
Today I'm recuperating . . . and nursing a cold. The scratchy throat began yesterday afternoon, turned into a sore throat before bed, and now is just tickly and slightly raw. I have no fever or headache or anything like that, just a swimmy head. I've been lying on the sofa sleeping most of the day away (after waking up at 10:00 this morning), and now I feel alert enough to go online for a bit.
Has anyone ever watched Fiddler on the Roof? One of our church families loaned it to us to watch. It's 3 hours long, so I'm waiting for just the right time to start it. If Beth wasn't watching a movie right now, I'd say now would be a good time. Maybe when she's finished.
I hope you're having a great New Year's Day!
